Monica is a wandering zombie after dumping Richard for not sharing her child-wish. Ross confides in Rachel his sexual fantasy is princess Leia's gold bikini in Star Wars, but doesn't appreciate her telling it to blabbermouth Phoebe; when Rachel assures him boys miss out on true bonding because they don't tell each-other intimate details, he tries it with Chandler who brings up a very unfit confidence. As Joey really can't handle the prospect of Chandler not dumping Janice as usual, the two try spending whole 'day of fun' together for their common friend Chandler's sake. Written by KGF Vissers

Hate it
1 April 2015 | by stiflerbasant010See all my reviews

I hate this particular episode because it has crossed all levels of Vulgarity... Chandler tells Ross that he imagines his mother while having sex... i mean how can anyone say that... this is absurd... u have just crossed all levels... the writer do not care about the purest relationship of a mother and a son... this is absurd and bullshit... i hate chandler bing because of this one line only... it can ruin someone's life... hate friends because of this episode only... else it was good... The Writer and director of the show must apologise to the public for showing such thing on TV... i mean just imagine how can u say that a son imagine her mother during sex... they should be punished for showing this vulgarity and this cheapness on television
