Friends: Episode 1, Series 10
"The One after Joey and Rachel's kiss"
Yes, our best Friends are back, and it's their final series! (sob..)
This episode, set (again) in Barbados, sees Joey and Rachel, who are feeling guilty about kissing behind Ross' back,
making an important decision: they have to tell him.
Ross, in the meantime, also feels guilty about kissing hot paleontologist Charlie seconds after she had dumped Joey.
As for the other friends, who are all stuck in the middle, Monica's hair undergoes more torture as she becomes
more and more annoying!
Phoebe dumps boyfriend mike's ex-girlfriend (confused yet?)
As for chandler, he just tries to cope with his wife's new hairdo by saying things like: "I can see your scalp!"
What follows, as you might have guessed, is a series of misunderstandings involving the love triangle or, in this
case, love square (Joey, Rachel, Ross, Charlie) leaving the rest of the gang trying desperately to figure everything
out by any means necessary, even listenning through the paper-thin walls of the Barbados hotel!
It all ends on a cliffhanger: Ross walks in on Joey and Rachel kissing! TA TA TAAAAAM!
The funniest scene comes when Rachel tries to tell Ross about Joey and her and Ross starts whining and screaming
about a "major shampoo explosion!" in his bags.
Overall, it's a good start for these last series even though the "Monica's hair" and "Phoebe and Mike" subplots
are a little weak.

Episode 2, Series 10
" The One where Ross is Fine! "
The second episode from series 10 picks up right where the previous one left off and is, I must say, a nice little
surprise! I say "surprise" because Ross' reaction to Rachel and joey's hidden kiss is totally unexpected. Instead of being
angry or asking for an explanation he just, how can I put this?...Loses it!
In a "loud and squeaky" voice, he claims that he's fine and he does that about a gazillion times in the episode.
He invites Joey and Rachel to dinner by screaming: "I'm making FAJITAS!!"
Meanwhile, Phoebe's weird brother shows up in Central Perk (looking like a tired hillbillie!) with
the triplets who are not what you would call a quiet bunch! Chandler and monica go to visit a couple that had adopted a child
to try and find out how the process really works. everything goes fine until Chandler puts his foot in it and accidentally
tells the unaware son that he was adopted (and that Santa is not real!)
The funniest scenes all belong to David Schwimmer (Ross) whose nutty and unusual performance is a delight to watch
and really funny indeedy! Ross has never been that funny...until now! The "Chandler and Monica" subplot is also enjoyable
and amusing. And although it's nice to see the now grown up triplets again, the "Phoebe and bro" subplot is a little
pointless and brings nothing to the series. Overall, an excellent and really funny episode!

Episode 3: Series 10
"The One With Ross' Tan"
This is the 3rd
episode from the last series and is really good fun indeed. Rachel and Joey have trouble moving to the next stage of their
new, uncertain relationship: Rachel keeps slapping Joey when he touches her and he’s nervous and unsure. Monica and
Phoebe want to cut out Amanda, an obnoxious, annoying pretentious woman, out their lives (she’s Stiffler’s mum
by the way). Meanwhile, Ross goes to a spray-on tanning salon and gets confused about when to turn and ends up being extremely
tanned on one side and white on the other. Chandler…well, he just hangs about reading a newspaper, telling everyone
he gets pedicures and making hilarious sarcastic comments. The stories, as you can see, are quite light, but they are so well
scripted that it makes them very enjoyable and funny. David Schwimmer displays his slapstick talents and Rachel knees Joey
in his testicles (or “Misters” as he calls them) by accident which is, obviously, hilarious. Overall, it’s
a light-hearted episode that’s very enjoyable and funny. Terrific fun.

The Rembrandts (I'll Be There For You)
So no one told you life was gonna be this way. [four claps]
Your job's a joke, you're broke, your
love life's D.O.A.
It's like you're always stuck in second gear,
When it hasn't been your day, your week, your month,
or even your year,
I'll be there for you!
(When the rain starts to pour)
I'll be there for you!
I've been there before)
I'll be there for you
('Cause you're there for me too)
in bed at ten and work began at eight,
You've burned your breakfast so far, things are going great,
Your mother warned
you there'd be days like these,
But she didn't tell when the world has brought you down to your knees.
Smelly Cat, Smelly cat what are they feeding you?
Smelly Cat, smelly cat it's not your fault...
They won't take you to the vet.
You're obviously not their favorite pet.
You may not be a bed of roses,
you're no friend to those with noses.
Smelly cat, smelly cat what are they feeding you?
Smelly cat, smelly cat
it's not your fault!
Went to the store, sat on Santa's lap
Asked him to bring my friends all kinds of crap
all you need is to write them a song
Now you haven't heard it yet so don't try to sing along
No don't sing along
Monica, have a happy Hanukkah
Saw Santa Claus, he said hello to Ross
And please tell Joey, Christmas will be snowwwwwy
Rachel and Chandler, (mumbles something) handler!
My favourite shoes so good to me
I wear them everyday
Down at the heel, holes in the toe
care what people say
My feet's best friend, pals to the end
With them I'm one hot chicky
Though late one night
I stepped in something icky
Sticky shoes, sticky shoes
always makes me smile
Sticky shoes, sticky shoes
time I'll avoid the pile
