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

Great For Aniston And Star Wars Fans
12 December 2014 | by slightlymad22See all my reviews

This episode is great for Star Wars fans and Jennifer Aniston fans

Plot In A Paragraph: In an attempt to spice up their love life, Rachel asks Ross about his fantasies. He reveals a particular Star Wars one involving Princess Leia in a gold bikini, which leads to him being ridiculed by the girls when Rachel fails to keep it to herself. Meanwhile Joey is annoyed that Chandler is refusing to break up with the annoying Janice (Maggie Wheeler) and Monica is heartbroken following her split with Richard at the end of season two.

A great start back to the season, The Monica parts drag a bit, but there is a lot of fun to be had seeing Jennifer Aniston dressed as Princess Leia in THAT gold bikini and the Joey struggling with Janice storyline.
