Ross is eager to have everyone ready well in time for his 8 PM speech at the museum's benefit, but they all have other priorities then getting dressed. Joey childishly steals Chandler's armchair while he used the bathroom, and obstinately keeps sitting in it, in the process getting a stain on Phoebe's dress; when finally chased, Joey takes the pillows with him, Chandler retorts by stealing all Joey's underwear, Joey takes sordid vestimentary revenge... Monica freaks when she hears an answering machine message from Richard, even although it's probably ancient, and keeps making it worse abusing his code... Worst of all is Rachel, who takes forever to pick an outfit till Ross insists she should hurry up, never mind what she wears, then she refuses to go altogether, until Joey's flippant suggestion is taken seriously...Written by

When Chandler comes back from getting dressed, it's Joey's turn to go change which is when he takes the "essence" (the cushions) of the chair along with him. Then, Joey gets back and he accuses Chandler of wearing his underwear. Chandler claims he stole the underwear only because Joey took his essence, but Chandler already put on Joey's underwear before Joey stole the cushions, so there's no way Chandler wore the underwear as revenge for taking the cushions as that has not happened yet.

Rachel didn't have anything that I liked, but she had this Christmas ribbon, and I thought, 'All right, fine I'll be political.'

This is one of the very few episodes where I feel it deserves full points. Plot - Other reviewers have written it. Strength - The entire episode is done in one room. The blocking and character timing are the major strength. It was indeed a risky episode, and the writers certainly knew this, for they made a brilliant script, and the actors acknowledged it. The chemistry between characters were shining, and most importantly, none of the friends are overshadowed by others. Everyone are at the top. Weakness - Rachael and Ross. This is the only chemistry in this episode which I felt did not work out. But it's just my opinion.
