S1 E9 The One Where Underdog Gets Away
The first of many a grand tradition – the Friends Thanksgiving episodes!
Season 1 Episode 2: The One with the Sonogram
We find out Ross is gonna be a baby daddy, Rachel has to return the ring to Barry, and Monica is stressed out because her parents are coming to visit!
We talk about how we LOVED middle school & dating your best friend’s ex – we never did it, but did you?
Also, we meet Carol – but then we un-meet her since we never see her again. I wonder why she passed on this show? I guess she didn’t know it would be so successful in the long run!
Carol A. vs. Carol B – who Carol-ed best?
Link to Carol A’s IMDB – I guess she’s been busy I just don’t remember seeing here anywhere… write to us, girl!
RACHEL GREEN HAIR-GATE. Do you think they threw the pregnancy plot line in there and filmed these episodes out of order? What is Rachel’s hair telling us?
Ross is freaked out by people trying the breast milk, Monica has a secret new shopping friend (her name rhymes with Bulie), and Joey faces off with the fastest perfume spritzer in the west (of the men’s department).
Have you ever tried breast milk? Neither of us have, but we also aren’t opposed/freaked out by it. Ross FREAKS out (what else is new?) and only wants to try it so that Susan doesn’t have anything to one-up him.
We talk about kids on milk cartons, here’s a pretty good article talking about how it worked and how it lasted less than 6 years! https://www.factinate.com/editorial/milk-carton-kids/
Did you have a “password” for adults other than your parents to pick you up? Renee’s was ‘Dallas Cowboys’ and Ashley’s was “my mom will pick me up even if she’s dead so there is no password. hahaha. Tell us your password, and better yet, if you ever had to use it!
Also, “Bijan For Men” is a real cologne! And apparently still available on Amazon if you’re interested in picking some up for the outlaw in your life 😛 And after much debate, “Bijan” means “Hero” in Persian (not French lol)
We also deal with the cattiness of Rachel in this episode. Ashley really is hating on Rachel in this episode, but Renee thinks Julie is part of the passive-aggressive problem, too. What do you think? Team Rachel or Team Julie?
OMG!!!!!!! We made it to the end of Season 1 – can you believe we are so far in?!
Ross goes to China, worried his 2 week old son, who can’t hold his own head up will forget him, Rachel goes on a horrible date with a guy yelling about Ed Begley Jr (the first of two times he’s mentioned on the show! Remember the other time?), Joey learns what it means to “be there for HER” when he does some medical research testing, it’s Rachel’s birthday and Ross gets her the most thoghtful gift EVER, which makes her open her eyes to how much he loves her! EEEEEK! it’s all happening!
This episode we are joined by a very special guest host, the pug, Mr. Pickles. Isn’t he cute?! Please ignore all of his grunts.
Season 2 is COMING IN HOT!!!!!!
When you google Sexy Curmudgeon, Danny DeVito in a tux comes up (appropriate, I mean he DID become a stripper…). I imagine Ron Swanson may also fall into this category. Not as popular a costume as you might think!
Monica dates Young Ethan, who is even younger than originally thought, Chandler turns into Boss Man Bing, Rachel is having sex dreams about everyone but Ross and of course he’s PISSED! We discuss being Young Ethan-ed ourselves, how baby faced we were, and our lack of pagers.
Hey best friends! It’s Ashley here. I took a stage name generator and it said Valerie Lancashire, which I think sucks as a stage name but I used to use the name Valerie whenever giving a fake name because I like it so much so kinda win? Tell us your best fake name!
Barry comes back to Rachel, Mindy smells something fishy – but REALLY loves saying “DDS” after her name, Chandler goes on the “greatest first date ever”, but still thinks the girl is desperate (come on, Chandler!). We give you our entire dental history… fun, right?! 🙂

The one with all the poker! Really, that sums it up. Rachel applies for an assistant buyer job and really, they just play poker. 🙂
We aren’t really poker players, but Renee loves blackjack.
The one with all the poker!
Renee killing it at the Blackjack tables in Atlantic City. Our friend Elizabeth got yelled at after taking this photo… apparently that isn’t allowed 😉
