Summary: Rachel realizes her coworkers are making all of their decisions without her because she doesn't smoke so she starts smoking to get involved. Phoebe wants to throw a surprise party for Rachel but Monica takes full control of setting up the party. Ben gets an audition for a commercial and Joey tags along hoping to get an audition for himself.
The Good: The storylines were pretty fun all around and they led to a few great laughs. While inconsistent, there were good laughs throughout the episode and every character gets a chance to shine. Phoebe is fun as she gets back at Monica, Monica and Chandler are fun again as a couple, Rachel is good as she desperately tries to get involved, and both Ross and Joey get some great jokes.
The Bad: The problem is the consistency. While there are good jokes, there are a few that just aren't very funny or memorable at all. Also, the storylines aren't the best. Joey comes off poorly at times in his story with Ross. The noodle soup joke is extremely unrealistic and not really funny at all. Outside of Rachel being full of energy, there isn't much humour to her story. The cups and ice story doesn't really have a great pay-off joke so it doesn't work as well as it could have.
Best Moment: Chandler excusing himself from Joey and Ross' argument was great.
Character of the Episode: Phoebe.
Conclusion: This was a decent episode, but there really isn't much special here, and there are a few dull stretches with little humour.
