At the site of the movie co-starring the capucin Marcel, Ross is disappointed not to get his former pet's full attention, but is promised a reunion afterward, which is however canceled. Joey attempts to get a part in the movie. The girls only have eyes for human star Jean-Claude Van Damme; since Monica is too shy to address him, Rachel asks him, but he invites her- several rows and dates are the -even literally- messy result. Chandler meets a former classmate, Susie Moss, whom he once humiliated causing her to be nicknamed 'Susie underpants', but now makes him ask her out and wear her panties, alas not just for the kick... Finally Ross gets a surprise. Written by KGF Vissers

User Reviews

One of the best episodes of Friends
17 February 2015 | by manugargSee all my reviews

This episode contains one of the best scenes from 'Friends': Chandler is stuck in a restaurant toilet wearing only panties (how that came to happen is also pretty interesting) and Joey is looking over from another stall; Ross walks in with no idea of what is actually going on, looks at Joey and says with a grin: 'Some people don't like that.' It's just hilarious. I could not stop laughing until my abs were hurting big time. You will need to watch it to really understand what I mean.

Other bits are pretty cool as well. This episode has Julia Roberts and Van Damme as guest stars. Rachel and Monica's fight over Van Damme is pretty hilarious. Julia Roberts is looking lovely as always.
