Summary: Monica and Ross' Nana dies in the hospital. The friends all attend her funeral. Monica gets to talk with her mom regarding her extreme criticism. Ross hurts himself and takes pills and acts very flamboyantly. Chandler deals with the fact that lots of people think he's gay.
The Good: This was another very strong and funny episode of television. The side-plot with Chandler was wonderful as usual, and it also had a very real feeling as people discuss how Chandler has a gay "quality". There were loads of laughs and funny lines which helped the episode have a lighter tone despite it focusing on the death of Nana. I think the character moments were woven beautifully throughout the episode as well. They were brilliantly laced with comedy and I thought that the progression of Monica's relationship with her mom, the continued hilarity of Jack Geller and Ross continuing to show his feelings were all very well done. Phoebe and Joey were in the background this episode, but their few lines were very funny.
The Bad: There were a few scenes that I felt were played a little for emotion regarding Nana's death, but since we didn't know her at all the scenes kind of felt awkward and out of place. It also didn't help that they lacked humour.
Best Moment: I'll go with Monica's interactions with her mom at the funeral. It was some great character development and also had lots of laughs interlaced with it. While it's not the funniest scene in the episode, but I think it was the most well done.
Character of the Episode: I'll give it to Ross this time. Though Chandler was still hilarious, Ross got more focus and delivered in every scene so I have to give it to him.
Conclusion: Friends continues to be must-watch comedy with another great episode, this time providing some quality character moments with the usual laughs.
