The One With Phoebe's Fur Coat...
17 April 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I really love this episode. There are so many funny elements to it. It's just great.

In this episode, Phoebe receives a fur coat from her mother, and at first, she refuses to wear it because it's fur, and she is totally against that. But when she sees how good it looks on her, she decides to ignore her beliefs, at least for a little while. Meanwhile, Monica and Rachel go down into the basement to get their waffle iron, and they see what they think is a yeti. They spray him with a bug-bomb and run away. It turns out that it was their neighbor, Danny, who had been on a trek for months in the wilderness, and that's why he had such long hair and such a long beard. Meanwhile, everyone becomes frustrated and annoyed with Emily's demands, which aren't entirely unreasonable, since Ross did say the wrong name at their wedding, but I feel like that's what happens when you marry Ross Gellar. Jeez, I really hate Ross Gellar. He's so obnoxious.

Overall, I give this episode a 9 out of 10.
