Summary: Rachel freaks out about not making money and brings down Phoebe and Monica. Ross, Chandler and Joey go to see a hockey game, but Ross is out of it because it's the anniversary of his first time having sex.
The Good: This was an excellent episode of comedy with loads of laughs. All 6 friends had hilarious moments throughout the episode and I was engaged throughout as 2 very simple and enjoyable plotlines were on display. All 6 of the characters are now well defined and factored into their respective stories in a funny and organic way. Rachel's panic, Monica's uptightness, Phoebe's weirdness, Ross' awkwardness, Chandler's sarcasm and Joey's slow mind each added to the story and there were tons of moments where I almost fell apart while laughing. The hockey game story was excellently edited for its time and the hospital lady led to some really good moments. I also loved Ross' continued sadness which made Chandler and Joey's lines that much funnier. The other story wasn't quite as funny but it was still enjoyable and the three girls had very good lines. Rachel's character arc also progressed in her attempt to be more independent and it was a nice development for her as she realizes that she is in th same boat with her friends despite them being more experienced with life.
The Bad: There were still a couple poorly written lines and jokes, but other than that this was superb.
Best Moment: Probably any scene with the hospital lady. It's tough to choose in this episode.
Character of the Episode: I'll go with Chandler but all three of the guys were show stealers in this episode.
Conclusion: A very strong and enjoyable episode of television. If Friends can keep this quality, the show can be something really special.
Just a university student who loves to watch TV. And criticize it like hell.
