Summary: Ross goes on his first date in 10 years but messes it up when Carol arrives and he spends more time talking to her than his actual date. Chandler goes on a double date with Joey only to find that his date is Janice. They both get drunk and have sex to Chandler's dismay and Chandler is forced to dump her again. Rachel, Phoebe and Monica have a boyfriend bonfire in an attempt to get better guys in their life, but it goes wrong and starts a fire.
The Good: I thought this was a fantastic episode of Friends. This is the kind of episode that may get forgotten in the shuffle, but it is funny, memorable, emotional and superbly written. This is comedy at its absolute best. The thing that I love is how all 3 storylines make sense and have a really great story to them. Chandler and Ross in particular go through some excellent arcs in this episode that really add on some emotion o the episode. And yet the episode is also able to be one of the show's funniest on top of these stories which is no mean feat. It made me feel something while making me laugh hard throughout the whole episode. Now to be more specific, I enjoyed Chandler's story the most. Janice's return was capitalized on much more here than in "The One with the Monkey" and led to a myriad of funny jokes while also letting Chandler get a good story arc revolving around his relationship with Janice. The best thing about this is that they had a lot of serious scenes which were also infused with comedy, making them both funny and also emotional at the same time. Ross' scenes were similarly good, though not quite as successful. His storyline was the most satisfying storywise but it wasn't as funny as the others. The girls also had a fun little background story, providing the odd laugh as they attempt to improve their love lives in ridiculous fashion.
The Bad: Nothing.
Best Moment: I'll pick Chandler breaking up with Janice. Janice was given a good character arc and Chandler's insecurity was highlighted brilliantly while the scene kept up with a lot of laughs all the way through.
Character of the Episode: Chandler.
Conclusion: A spectacular episode, which is the best the show has offered so far. This season is mostly remembered for "The One with the Blackout", but I honestly think this was better and more enjoyable. This is how you do a comedy episode.
