One of the best.
30 October 2012 | by See all my reviews

This episode follows 3 Stories. Chandler- trying to get rid of Janice. This is one of chandlers best episodes in the series. Its super funny the issues that arise when he tries to break up with her. Ross- rugby. Ross tries to prove he's tough by playing rugby. Absolutely hilarious. Monica- trying to figure out the light switch. This one I was less fond of. I get that she's obsessive, but aside from something joey does, its not that funny in this episode. This storyline is the only reason I didn't give the episode a 10. The other 3 characters just supported the 3 main stories and were very funny. Overall One of the best episodes barring the Monica story. 9/10.
