great episode with chandler at his best. The rest of the cast as well does a great job. And as a guy I really liked the guest appearance by Brittney Powell as Jade. I did however find some flaws. When the friends Ross, Monica and Chandler are at the Hootie and the Blowfish concert the song "I Go Blind" starts playing and at the end of the concert you hear the ending of the same song.I also really liked the fight between the poor friends and the richer friends because this also divides people in real life. You can see how the poor friends Joey, Rachel and Phoebe are obligated to do things that cost too much to fit their budget and still go along with it because it are their friends.
