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?
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!
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!
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!
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.
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?
Monica mysteriously has cat toys, and we talk about our own Fluffy Meowington (Mr. Fluffy, Ashley’s favorite cat visitor).
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.
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….
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!
Live from Palm Springs one more time! We discuss Phoebe’s husband who thought he was gay but turns out he is straight, the secrets come out (YAY!), the gang watches Joey’s feature in a porno, and Rachel gives Ross “advice” about Julie.
We discuss Ashley’s general dislike for Rachel’s selfishness, how we think this is why Ross overcompensates for his sex life, and how Renée almost married for a green card (and another time for free tuition – whoops).
Enjoying some of the delicious food & drink in Palm Springs. Take us back!
These two best friends are live in Palm Springs! Mr Heckles dies and leaves everything to the “noisy girls downstairs”, Chandler fears for his future, Monica is controlling, and Ross can’t let the little things go. So basically, everything is normal…. except Renée and Ashley are TOGETHER!
