Storyline

Joey has a problem: he has to kiss a guy for an audition and Warren Beatty told him he was a bad kisser. Joey wants to practice kissing a guy with Chandler. Rachel is maid of honor for Barry and Mindy's wedding. She has to wear a horrible pink dress. Monica thinks about getting married to Richard. Richard tells her he sees a future with Monica but not with kids. Chandler has a relationship over the Internet. Turns out the girl is married. Ross, Rachel, Richard and Monica go to the wedding. Rachel feels uncomfortable because Barry's parents told everyone she ran away from Barry because she was crazy after having had syphilis. Ross saves Rachel by making a speech about her courage to show up at the wedding. Richard tells Monica he'll have a child with her if he has to in order not to lose her. Monica doesn't want a child with someone who doesn't really want to have one. Chandler's meets his cyber space friend and they kiss. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

The reason that Monica and Richard attend Barry and Mindy's wedding despite not being friends with them can be explained by Richard's long-time connection to their Long Island community as a prominent eye doctor. Rachel knew Richard from her childhood, and at one point, Rachel says "I just need to be in a room with these people again", suggesting that many of the wedding guests at Barry and Mindy's wedding would have been at her wedding as well. If that were the case, then Richard would have been invited since he was part of the circle of friends that included the Greens and the Gellers. It's entirely possible he was a good friend to Barry and / or Mindy's parents as well, and if so, he would have been invited... and taken Monica as his Plus One. See more »

Goofs

Rachel says her most embarrassing moment was being forced to sing in front of her classmates in eighth grade, and Ross says he remembered it and it wasn't so bad, implying he witnessed it. It's not explained why Ross, who is two years older and then a sophomore in high school, was at a junior high. See more »

A Much Better Season Finale Than Season One
12 December 2014 | by slightlymad22See all my reviews

In the "Friends" season two finale we have both love, heartbreak and thankfully a laugh or too.

Plot In A Paragraph: Rachel reluctantly agrees to be maid of honour at her ex-fiancé Barry's wedding to her former maid of honour Mindy. Meanwhile the wedding makes Monica ponder where her future with Richard is heading, Chandler meets the perfect woman online, and after being criticised as a "good actor, but bad kisser" by Warren Beatty, Joey tries to practice kissing guys to get a role in Beatty's new movie.

We get a nice surprise at the end of the episode when we find out who Chandlers perfect woman is, but its tinged with sadness as Monica realises she may not get what she wants out of her relationship with Richard.
