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?
Janice has a question… can you name all seven of Joey’s sisters? It’s been a trivia question before so better find out now!
Let’s Go Sports Fans!!!!!! Time for some (American) football!!!!!! In this Thanksgiving episode, Monica and Ross get too competitive because that’s how they are, and we all get introduced to the Geller Cup (a troll doll nailed to a 2×4). Joey & Chandler get introduced to Mar-ha, and Phoebe gets introduced to a huddle. Rachel… well, she just goes long. No sports skill required to listen to this episode!
Here’s a question. What would you rather do: be in a soap opera or teach soap opera acting at the Learning Extension?
BONUS POINTS to anyone who can name all the Friends’ characters middle names!
Amazing discoveries! Now you can have this podcast every day! Joey gives Chandler some decent advice, to face his fears of commitment with Janice! The girls are pissed because of the double standards. Ross is over reacting because of Ben’s Barbie, and we realize the root of “kicky”. Phoebe gets to talk on a car phone and pretend to be Joey’s agent. And we discuss accidentally running into people on purpose and how this has worked out for us.
Our very first guest host is here! Our very dear friend, Casey, from college (and one of our best friends to this day). Here’s Renee & Casey recording together and Casey ordering the “Joey Special” aka two pizzas!
We talk about this one-scene episode, where we’re all not in a very museum-benefity kind of mood. Ross is a bundle of nerves, Joey & Chandler are fighting over SEAT CHECK, Monica loses it juuuuuust a little when she hears an old message from Richard, and Phoebe is our shining star of this episode.
We talk about the 2019 equivalent of calling into your ex’s voicemail and sharing a lot of of old stories. This one was a lot of fun!
Who wore it best? Renee or Joey?
Here are a lot of pictures of Renee, Ashley and Casey over the years!
Can’t believe we have finally made it to Season Three! Thanks everyone for joining us so far – we can’t wait to keep pushing ahead.
And by the way, if anyone wanted to dress up as Princess Leia for Halloween, there are LOTS of costumes available out there on the internet.
Rachel gets to dress up like Princess Bubbleyum and enjoy a repeat of her own wedding, Chandler is HH all over the internet, potentially being catfished, and Joey reeeeeeeeally needs to kiss a guy. Monica and Richard confront the reality of the future. Renee and Ashley check to see if BracesAndGlasses69 is available as a username on AIM.
This is the book, the Confidence Artist, I mentioned about catfishing! Have you ever catfished someone? Tell us all of your good AIM stories!
