One of Friends' best seasons!
Deanna | Maryland | 01/11/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

""Friends - The Complete Third Season" is a must-have for any Friends fan! I consider this to be one of Friends' best seasons for two reasons. One, being the sharp and very witty dialogue and happenings (Chandler & Joey acquiring a duck & a chick, Phoebe's boyfriend's "hanging" problem, Chandler acting like a woman, etc.). The second, is Ross and Rachel's breakup. David Schwimmer and Jennifer Aniston were heartbreakingly believable in the parting of one of TV's greatest couples ever.In this collection, you get the following episodes:1. "The One With the Princess Leia Fantasy"- Monica's still gloomy over her breakup with Richard. Ross tells Rachel about his Princess Leia fantasy.2. "The One Where No One's Ready"- Ross and Phoebe are the only one's dressed 30 minutes before a museum fundraiser.3. "The One With the Jam"- Monica tries to get over Richard by making jam. Then she decides that she wants to have a baby on her own, so she gets a list of sperm donors, only to discover Joey is on the list.4. "The One With the Metaphorical Tunnel"- Ross is shocked when Ben plays with a Barbie doll. Chandler decides to "go through the tunnel" and make a commitment to Janice.5. "The One With Frank Jr."- Phoebe reunites with her half brother, Frank Jr. The gang discusses who would be on their freebie list (five celebrities they'd be allowed to sleep with and not jeopardize their relationship).6. "The One With the Flashback"- Janice asks everybody if they've ever almost hooked up, causing the gang to have a flashback to three years earlier. We see Chandler searching for a roommate & hitting on Rachel (who's having cold-feet over her impending marriage), Ross making out on a pool table with Phoebe after he learns his wife is a lesbian and Monica with a crush on Joey.7. "The One With the Race Car Bed"- Ross is dreading a dinner with Rachel's father. Joey goes with Monica to return a race car bed that was accidentally delivered to her apartment.8. "The One With the Poking Device"- Rachel and Monica baby-sit Ben for the afternoon, but Monica leaves a knot on his head after bumping him into the wall. Joey tells Chandler that he caught Janice kissing her ex-husband.9. "The One With the Football"- It's Thanksgiving and the gang goes over to the park to play football and some sibling rivalry between Ross and Monica is reawakened.10. "The One Where Rachel Quits"- Just before Christmas, Gunther tells Rachel she needs to be retrained as a waitress, so she quits. Monica gets hooked on Mint Treasures that Ross is selling.11. "The One Where Chandler Can't Remember Which Sister"- A drunk Chandler hooks up with one of Joey's sisters, but he can't recall which one. Rachel meets Mark, who helps her get a job at Bloomingdale's.12. "The One With All the Jealousy"- Ross gets jealous over the fact that Mark takes Rachel to lunch. Monica goes out with Julio, a hunky co-worker at the 50s diner.13. "The One Where Monica & Richard Are Friends"- Monica runs into Richard at the video store. Phoebe's new boyfriend unknowingly "hangs out of his shorts," to Chandler's horror.14. "The One With Phoebe's Ex-Partner"- Phoebe reunites with a former musical collaborator. Chandler meets Ginger, the girl whose wooden-leg Joey threw in a fire.15. "The One Where Ross & Rachel Take A Break"- After Rachel tells Ross she has to cancel their anniversary plans, he shows up at her office with a picnic basket. She tells him they need to take a break from their relationship and he then sleeps with Chloe, the hot girl from the copy store.16. "The One With the Morning After"- Ross frantically tries to keep Rachel from finding out what he did, but Gunther spills the beans.17. "The One Without the Ski Trip"- Rachel invites everybody besides Ross on a ski trip. On their way, the gang gets locked out of the car at a desolate rest stop.18. "The One With the Hypnosis Tape"- Chandler has been listening to a hypnosis tape that's supposed to help him stop smoking. The only problem is, the tape's geared toward women and he starts acting very feminine.19. "The One With the Tiny T-Shirt"- Mark confesses his crush to Rachel and asks her out. Ross and Rachel return each other's belongings.20. "The One With the Dollhouse"- Monica inherits her Aunt Sylvia's dollhouse. Rachel's boss expresses her interest in Chandler.21. "The One With A Chick & A Duck"- Joey gets a baby chicken (that Chandler names Yasmine). Chandler tries to dump the chick off at a shelter, but ends up bringing home a duck instead.22. "The One With the Screamer"- Rachel's new boyfriend (Ben Stiller) turns out to have a raging temper, but it only shows in front of Ross.23. "The One With Ross's Thing"- Ross discovers a growth on his lower back and he goes to see Phoebe's herbalist. Pheeb's is juggling two guys: a firefighter and a teacher.24. "The One With the Ultimate Fighting Champion"- Pete, Monica's boyfriend, gets whipped in his Ultimate Fighting match. Phoebe asks Rachel if she can set Ross up with her friend, Bonnie, who used to be bald.25. "The One At the Beach"- Phoebe and the gang head to Montauk, New York, so she can meet an old friend (also named Phoebe) of her mother's. During the trip, Rachel tricks Bonnie into shaving her head, which is a total turn-off for Ross, who ends up kissing Rachel."
