Storyline

Monica's credit card has been stolen, and she feels that the thief is living the life she ought to have. She tracks her down to a tap-dance class, and ends up liking her and spending lots of time with her. Ross's monkey is humping everything, so he has to give him away, but finding an appropriate zoo is a difficult task. Written by Pruneau

A dud episode
8 September 2019 | by studioATSee all my reviews

There were a few dud episodes as the first series of 'Friends' wound down, and this is one of them.

I didn't really like any of the three stories, and would skip it next time.
