S2E15: The One Where Ross and Rachel… You Know

I’ve got good news and I’ve got bad news. The good news is, look how ethereal Olivia Newton John looks in that Xanadu poster above! The bad news is, I’m pretty sure Amazing Discoveries is some kind of cult now. Ok maybe not a cult, but the website has a scrolling gallery of links to donate to their “ministry” and absolutely no immediately available information on what they actually are or do. So…. I think the Amazing Discoveries we know and love is not around. Sorry team! 

More good news though (for people who live in or near Chicago). My Pi Pizza is still delicious! The only deep dish I can recommend. Tell them Ashley sent ya (just kidding, don’t do that, they have no idea who I am). https://www.mypiepizza.com/

S2 E14: The One with the Prom Video

I pity the fool who misses this episode, I do I do! On this episode of Lobster Cheaters… er…. I mean, Best Friends Club Podcast, we have our first flashback! Monica busts out the prom video. What’s not to love? Ross goes along with Phoebe’s whim for the first time, because it benefits him (do the claws again!) Joey buys Chandler the woman repeller from the Mr. T collection…. and we find out HE’S HER LOBSTER <3

Do Lobsters Mate for Life? Marine science today says no. Haven’t heard back from Ashley on her totally legitimate link…  http://marinesciencetoday.com/2017/02/14/lobsters-a-love-story/

Now it’s time for OUR PROM PICS. Get ready for a lot of french twists and eyeliner.

Sophomore Year Homecoming
junior prom - here's Ashley's white flower train dress and my black dress the first time around 🙂
Senior Prom! Black Dress Take 2 for Renee and Ash also lookin chic in black. Please enjoy $300 worth of corsages we definitely didn't need. (I wouldn't have eaten if i knew there was corsage!)

S2 E12 and 13: The One After the Superbowl

Eat Us, We're Done!

Welcome to this season’s two-parter, Episodes 12 and 13, The One After the Superbowl. We’ve got sports, we’ve got cameos, we’ve got animals (ugh Marcelllllll is back), so let’s get into it! 

So first thing’s first – we learned that Friends is leaving Netflix (US) in 2020, so here is a link to buy the complete box set on DVD from Best Buy! (also available in Canada and Mexico, just find your local link).  

https://www.bestbuy.com/site/friends-the-complete-series-collection-dvd/8923049.p?skuId=8923049&intl=nosplash 

Since it is currently 2019, you might not want to buy DVDs. You can buy seasons on iTunes ($20 each). 

No word on when Friends might leave TVNZ streaming service, so… maybe everyone move to New Zealand? You can get your All Birds here too, win win!  

Introducing - the celeb cameos:

Up first: Chris Isaak. "Um, pick a manlier note please." We love your falsetto, Chris.
Brooke Shields really nailing the crazy stalker vibe! Someone give this woman her own sitcom!
Here's a bonus pic of Brooke's great animal print outfit that we would totally wear present day.
This isn't the best pic of Julia Roberts's cameo but it does have the restaurant name on the menu showing! Fun little Easter Egg.
Here's the little sliver where you can see Chandler's boxers peeking out. Come on costume department!
Jean Claude van Damme, the Muscles from Brussels, with his 2 fave ladies. Where's Drew Barrymore?
Taj Mowry! Top left is as Teddy in Full House, bottom left is as TJ Henderson in Smart Guy, and right is present day. Nice glow up Taj!

Fred Willard and Dan Castellaneta were the two zoo employees. I didn’t bother finding pictures sorry, let us know if you really want their pics.  

And since we know you’ve been waiting for it, here’s Outbreak 2: The Virus (not Monkey, sorry) Takes Manhattan.

S2E11: The One with The Lesbian Wedding

Now You've Seen Everything!

In this episode Carol & Susan get married, which Newt Gingrich and Ross have a real attitude problem about. Monica’s on board because she gets to cater it! Phoebe has the spirit of an old lady living inside her, which is like, been there amiright?! Joey debuts on DOOL! And Rachel’s mom drops quite a bomb on her. Tune in to hear it all!     

Sooooooooo Ashley was right!! (Ok technically Ben was right, but we’re a team). Technically Renee is right too… the others are replicas of the original. There are SEVEN Statues of Liberty around the world! They are in Norway, Denmark, Massachusetts, Las Vegas, Birmingham, Brazil, and 3 in Paris!

In case you, like us, had no idea who Soupy Sales was. He was an American comedian, actor, radio/television personality, and jazz aficionado.
Joey demonstrating Smell the Fart acting.

S2 E10: The One with Russ

Russ, Ross – Ross, Russ. It’s David Schwimmer vs. David Schwimmer on who can, uh, guh, cheayh…. take the longest to get, like, a sentence out? We see Fun Bobby get sober and significantly less fun, and we hear about DOOL for the first time!

Did you know it was just Ross with some great prosthetics? Many fans weren’t sure, and he even credited “Snaro” as the actor to keep the prank going. Maybe it was just Bob Saget….

On this episode of “Where Are They Now?”, we found this fun interview with Fun/Ridiculously Dull Bobby!

S2E9: The One With Phoebe’s Dad

It’s Christmas time in NYC! That means we’ve got Christmas cookies, ugly naked guy’s Christmas balls, presents that can be purchased from the gas station, and a tropical themed Christmas party. Tis the season!

S2 E8: The One With the List

This episode is called… Two of Them Kissed Last Night. Wait, that’s not right. It’s The One with Betty, Neil and…. Lulie. Ross and Rachel kissed, Ross is an idiot and makes a pro/con list (great for deciding where to go to college, not so much on girlfriends), Rachel finds it, and it’s a whole thing. We see the beginning of Ross’ obsessive behavior. Chandler gets a 1mb computer to store this single word document and feels the pain of pre-wifi printing. Oh yeah, and Monica tries to make Mockolate work. 

I looked this guy up! He's in a ton of stuff. I think I recognize him from the Brady Bunch Movie and Spinal Tap LOL.

If you’re interested, here are the lyrics to “Two of them Kissed Last Night”.

I found this fun article about Monica’s best food moments. Mockolate made number 9 haha!

Have you ever been in a Julie/Rachel situation? Have you had people “Contact Your DM’s”, as the kids say? 😛

Also, most importantly, what’s your Wine/Oreo combo with your besties?

 

S2E7: The One Where Ross Finds Out

Monica mysteriously has cat toys, and we talk about our own Fluffy Meowington (Mr. Fluffy, Ashley’s favorite cat visitor). 

Our Favorite Rachel Monologue!

Ross? Hi, it’s Rachel. I’m just calling to say that everything’s fine and I’m really happy for you, and your cat… who, by the way, I think you should name Michael. And, you see there I’m thinking of names, so obviously I am over you. I…am over…you, and that, my friend, is what they call closure.

S2 E6: The One With the Baby on the Bus

Chandler & Joey turn out to be the worst babysitters ever, Ross is a baby about getting a shot, we profess our love for Publix (nothing new here, Rachel has to fire Phoebe and then get her rehired with some cash to entice her, since Stephanie knows all the cords….

Guys, these are the Sungold Kiwi's! They're SO GOOD! Available for sure at Trader Joe's, Publix, and Kroger.
Does anyone else remember the Saved by the Bell murder mystery episode?
Lisa wears this really fab dress, which she also wears to Jessi's fathers wedding in Palm Springs! Don't ask me why I remember that.
Here's a kiwi-lime pie recipe, unless you're allergic like Ross and want to avoid the squirt gun epi-pen....

S2E5: The One With Five Steaks and an Eggplant

We’ve got steak, we’ve got eggplant, we’ve got Hootie & The Blowfish, and we’ve got uncomfortable conversations about money!! 

Let us know – have you ever had this awkward situation with money with your friends or family – where you didnt earn as much/couldnt spend in the same way as others, or where you tried to gift someone and they were unreceptive? We want to hear about it! Click “contact” in the top right of this page and we’ll get your email! 

Present day Darius Rucker, for those of you wondering!
