Chandler wants to give Joey $1,500 to pay bills. After they play Foosball, Joey winds up owing Chandler $500 so Chandler suggests they play a made up game called "Cups. After Joey wins $700, Chandler claims that you have to double it and gives Joey $1,400 and then gives Joey 1 card and claims he wins another $100 bringing his total to $1,500, however Joey is already in the hole owing Chandler $500 so Joey really only won $1,000 or Chandler should have made Joey win $2,000 if he wanted to give him $1,500.

The One That Makes Me Sad Because Everyone Is Moving Out...
17 April 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I love this episode. It's one of my all-time favorite episodes from the entire series.

In this episode, it's the last night of Chandler and Joey living together, and the last night of Monica and Rachel living together. Chandler shows Joey how to pay bills, but he ends up having to pay for them, because Joey doesn't have enough money. But, since Joey won't accept the money, he and Chandler play a game, where Chandler purposely lets Joey win. But then Joey later plays it with Ross, and Ross wins all the money. I really think Ross should give the money back, since it was meant for Joey all along and it's a fake game. Meanwhile, Rachel hasn't packed, so she, Monica, and Phoebe spend their last night packing up her room. They get emotional about everything thing they pack. So Phoebe suggests thinking of things they won't miss, which gets Monica and Rachel into such a huge fight, that Rachel refuses to move. In the end, they make up and Rachel moves in with Phoebe and Chandler moves in with Monica.

Fun Fact: The first of ten episodes directed by David Schwimmer.

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