Storyline

Monica still can't get a job, and money is becoming tight. Ross gets her to agree to ask her parents for money. Joey buys Chandler a hideous gold friendship bracelet, and overhears Chandler complaining about it to Phoebe. Ross continues to pine after Rachel, who Phoebe insists is his "lobster", but she makes it pretty clear that its not happening. However, when an old home video of Monica and Rachel's prom is discovered, Ross's true feelings for Rachel are shown. Written by WildwoodFlower08

Goofs

In an earlier episode where all the friends gather around to watch the Prom video, Chandler makes some flippant comments upon seeing Monica in the Prom video, suggesting that he's never seen the fat Monica before. However, there are future episodes showing flashbacks of Chandler with a fat Monica together in college. See more »

Friends: The One with the Prom Video
20 June 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This one of the classic Friends episode. Ross still hopes to get with Rachel but she makes it clear that it won't happen. In the meantime Monica gets a tape from her parents of their prom night and they watch it. And this is what makes this episode so amazing! All actors are great at being their younger self and they all get something about their physical appearance that makes them look different and is funny for us: Monica being fat, Rachel's big nose, Ross's hair style. And watching Ross being ready to take Rachel to the prom and all dressed and then see her leaving the house with Chip was absolutely heartbreaking. Very well done, David Schwimmer! And Rachel going to him and kissing him after seeing the video causes even more cheering than it would otherwise thanks to it. A great idea, very well done

The Chandler and Joey story about bracelets is also great. It is funny and also shows them caring for each other which is a great part of their amazing "bromance".
