Storyline

Although Rachel failed to properly proofread her xeroxed resumes she does get an interview for her professional dream coming true as an assistant buyer. Meanwhile Phoebe's baseless feminist suspicion that the boys' poker night is somehow a macho conspiracy leads to the girls insisting to participate. Teaching them poker rules is like explaining rocket science to Joey, so the girls loose crushingly. Competitive Monica demands a rematch, after advanced lessons from her experienced aunt Iris. Finally, it comes down to a duel between Ross and Rachel, but she gets a call first: the buyer job fell through. Written by KGF Vissers

Not a classic for me
2 September 2019 | by studioATSee all my reviews

I can't agree with other reviews of this episode, for me it's one of my least favourites from what overall was a very strong first season of the show.

It has its moments, and there's some lovely interactions, but aside from them all playing poker not much really happens.
