The One with the Soap Opera Party
11 September 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

In this episode we get introduced to a new character, Charlie. She is the hot professor that will now be working with Ross. It is pretty interesting how they introduce her as someone who only dated Nobel price winners and how the episode ended

A great scene I should mention is Joey being told to take off his robe because he got caught lying and there is nothing under it. So funny, and great facial expression by Matt LeBlanc, he looks as if it is not a big deal and introduces himself to Charlie after

Chandler has some good small story in this episode as well. he looks very funny alone in this theater and he gets a great revenge on Phoebe and Monica
