214 高中舞会录影带
乔伊经济状况好转,还清了借钱德的债,还送钱德一只昂贵(但俗气)的金手镯。
但钱德不喜欢戴,乔伊发现以后感觉很受伤。
莫妮卡到餐厅面试新工作,餐厅经理很喜欢吃又脏又腐烂的沙拉(eh….)。
瑞秋又在约会男人,罗斯不得不干预……
瑞秋气咻咻的说,我们之间没戏,永远没可能了!
菲比认为瑞秋是罗斯的“龙虾”,注定要白头偕老。
莫妮卡的父母来访,把她的旧东西带来,因为已经将她的房间变成了健身房。
莫妮卡告诉他们她新近失业,但她没有勇气开口借钱。
在莫妮卡的旧物里有一卷录影带,里面录着她和瑞秋迎接高中舞会的情景。
瑞秋手术前不输给成龙的大鼻子,莫妮卡减肥前的伟岸身躯,以及罗斯的小学究模样都历历在目。
在录影带里,瑞秋约会的男生没有出现,她怕错过高中舞会而发了狂。
罗斯本打算约会他,但就在他开口之前,约瑞秋的男生又到了。
瑞秋这还是头一次看到这卷录影带,为罗斯对她的深情而感动不已,决定化干戈为玉帛,并好好亲了他一顿。
在录影带的最后部分,莫妮卡意外发现了一些她父母的镜头。
