Summary: Monica dates a college senior named Ethan who loses his virginity to her. However he then reveals he is a senior in high school to Monica's shock. Phoebe temps as Chandler's secretary and reveals to Chandler that nobody at work likes him. Chandler is upset and tries to be more friendly but finds that nothing is working. Rachel has erotic dreams about Joey and Chandler, which makes Ross very jealous. Carol calls Ross when she enters labour.
The Good: Friends makes a good comeback with another great episode of comedy. There were plenty of laughs throughout this episode which made it funny on a consistent basis. The Monica storyline as good and had a great twist to add to the comedy. I enjoyed Monica's reactions to the revelation too as they felt organic and still provided tons of laughs. Phoebe and Chandler's storyline was very good too and had a very real story revolving around Chandler's role as boss. It was a nice comedic look at how workers always hate their bosses and it made for plenty of laughs as Chandler tried to prove he was a good guy, and especially when all the friends started poking fun at Chandler's mannerisms. The Rachel storyline was complete filler, but it made for a perfect C-story here because there practically wasn't a single moment without humour. Ross brought the storyline to new heights with his hilarious jealousy which made for some fantastic lines and moments, the highlight being Ross getting upset with Chandler and Ross getting overly excited when Rachel finally has a dream about him. The final moments were fantastic too as Ross was very funny as he tried to get everyone else out the door. The final moments where Ross froze were also hilarious and unexpected which made for the perfect end to the episode.
The Bad: Friends has approached relationships a lot, but I fell that too many have ended in just a single episode. The story tries to make us care, but it really doesn't work if the relationship only has a single episode to grow. This hurt the Monica story this time around. This hasn't been much of a problem before, but now it is getting too formulaic and the attempts to add some kind of emotional tone really don't work at all.
Best Moment: Everyone making fun of Chandler was fantastic and I'll give the nod to that, though every Ross scene in this episode came close to being in tis section.
Character of the Episode: Ross.
Conclusion: Friends continues to provide extremely high quality humour, though some worrying story trends are beginning to surface as the first season nears its conclusion.
