Did You Know?


Despite the classic "We were on a break" line being used by Ross at various times throughout the remainder of the shows run, much to Rachel's chagrin. It was in fact Rachel who said it first in this episode, Ross didn't say it for the first time until the following episode. See more »


At the start Rachel stops by Ross' place before she goes to work, and she is then seen later in the coffeehouse. This is not a goof, she obviously didn't go to work because she needed to talk to Ross. See more »


Ross Geller: All I can think about is what is she going to do, what is she going to say when I tell her what I did.
Chandler Bing: Before we answer that, I think we should address the more important issue: how dumb are you?

so moving
29 May 2018 | by felice-witch-1See all my reviews

I think the first time I watched this I had never been heartbroken.. but watching it now this was so moving. David Schwimmer and Jennifer Aniston - WOW WOW WOW! Just amazing performances and connection. I actually cried. Dancer in the Dark is the last film I cried over. They both deserve an EMMY for these performances alone. And of course so well written. And funny bits too! My favourite line from Joey at the end: "Maybe she killed him." Perfect timing! Watching these again, 20 years older, I am surprised at how good it is. And how things mean different things to me now than when I was in my teens/early twenties. It is good for all ages!
