Storyline

Chandler and Monica are happy together - their worst problem is his habit to put CDs in the wrong box and their different taste in music. Rachel is desperate to get back at good terms with Joey, so she takes Monica's advice to change the subject to something work-related. However in another uncomfortable conversation she manages to convince Joey that her boss, Mr. Zelner, wants to buy her baby. When Phoebe resumes reading tea leaves, she sees that she'll meet the man of her dreams soon, and takes that to be Jim, who she keeps bumping into. However she soon finds he isn't quite that nice, and may be too crazy even for her! Ross is determined to get his favorite pink ('light salmon shade') shirt back from Mona's, so he sneaks in with the key, and dives behind the couch when she enters with a studly new lover...

Trivia

When Ross comes to Central Perk to ask his friends if they've seen his "salmon" colored shirt, the T-shirt he is wearing says "friend" in American Sign Language. See more »

Goofs

Phoebe reads the gang's tea leaves to tell their fortunes. But a coffee house like Central Perk is unlikely to offer a lot more than basic Lipton sachets - certainly not loose tea leaves. See more »

Quotes

Monica Geller-Bing: [holding Chandler's CD] Honey? The Miami Vice soundtrack? Really?
Chandler Bing: They were just giving those away at the store... in exchange for money.

The One with the Tea Leaves
3 September 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Now this is a great episode. I really like Rachel and Joey story. It is really funny what kind of a problem she comes up with. And it is a great way to deal with their story instead of just pretending like it didn't happen. Her talk with Mr. Zelner was hilarious as well, really good lines

Ross's story isn't any less funny. Having him hiding behind the couch checking out a catalogue while Mona and her date were making out was hilarious. And it got even better when they saw him

And with Phoebe we get a great prediction for the next episode. She meets a character played by Alec Baldwin so we know that something good is coming
