Joey has to kiss a guy for an audition,since Warren Beatty, the director, told him he was a bad kisser. He tries to convince Chandler and Ross to help him, but they both deny the invitation.

Barry and Mindy are going to marry, and Rachel is invited to be the maid of honor. She needs to wear a horrible pink dress for the occasion, what makes her feel even more uncomfortable in the wedding. (Not to mention the terrible gossip that she ran away from Barry because she had syphilis!)

A Much Better Season Finale Than Season One
slightlymad2212 December 2014
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.

Rounding up Series 2
studioAT29 April 2017
Warning: Spoilers
Before 'Friends' became more of a soap opera and had big splashy finale's where the odds were changed, it did nice simple episodes like this.

It's not a classic, but more of a winding down of plots from across the series. Monica and Richard/ Rachel and Barry - it's a nice way to round off what had been a hit and miss second year.

I found the story lines involving the characters of Joey and Chandler, which were good fun.

It's been a fun series two, this was a good example of that.

The One with Barry and Mindy's Wedding
ComedyFan201023 June 2011
Warning: Spoilers
Rachel has to face her fears and meet all the people from her past at Barry and Mindy's wedding. This is especially hard because she has a hideous bridesmaid dress. I loved the scene where Ross tells everyone to tell her she looks good and Phoebe does it through her laughter. Very well done by Lisa Kudrow

The best part was Joey trying to get a guy to kiss him because Waren Beatty told him that he is a bad kisser after his guy kissing scene. It is absolutely funny how he tries to convince his friends to kiss him. And also how at the end Ross actually give him as kiss to show what a good friend he is

Richard and Monica separate. And I could never feel bad for her, because it was her own fault. She chose non existing children over someone she "loves" and even when he was willing to compromise, she didn't accept.

And we get a nice surprise at the end when Chandler meets this perfect woman he was chatting with online.
