TOW Triggered Chandler, Unsupported Phoebe, and PLEH

It's Season 3, Episode 17, TO Without the Ski Trip, and we're staying warm by spiking our hot chocolate with bourbon! Elizabeth recorded from a state park, which lends itself to the "gang is stranded and Ross has to come rescue them" vibe. We discuss: being triggered/regressing, Philosophy skin care (and smelling like food), using your nipples to get free cable, how a good cheese ball can make a party, how it's possible to stuff outside the bra, and ... we invent the "poinsweatah"! More...


TOW Waxine, Anchovy Pizza, and Joey's Take-Notice Walk

It's the episode we've been dreading: TO the Morning After. Ross and Rachel break up, and we're drowning our sorrows with Waxinis -- inspired by the at-home leg-waxing kit that Monica and Phoebe try out. Aside from the obvious "Were they on a break?" conversation, we also talk about TV infomercial purchases, whether or not monogamy is "too cruel a rule," and how hitting is NEVER okay -- no matter how much Ross pisses you off. More at:...

While Ross and Rachel reach a literal breaking point, Monica and Phoebe date diplomats, and Chandler and Joey unsuccessfully try to land the hot Xerox girl, Chloe. We also discuss globe-shaped pencil sharpeners, and pitch a new segment: "What the Hell is Monica Wearing"? More at: ...


TOW a Wooden Leg, a Nubbinectomy, and a Jingle Bitch

We're back! After an unexpected hiatus (hello, Life), we're back to review TOW Phoebe's Ex-Partner, and we're drinking Ginger's Smoky Wooden Legs in honor of the woman Chandler (briefly) dates! Well, Heather's drinking it. Elizabeth's went terribly, terribly wrong...

As we mentioned, Chandler dates Ginger, who...


TOW Freezer Books, Sock Quarters, and Lasagna with Benefits

TOW Jerky Boyfriends and Jerky Dancing

It's S03E12 - TOW All the Jealousy, and to toast Joey's audition for "A Tale of Two Cities," we're drinking Cocktails of Two Cities! Ross is CRAZY jealous of Mark and inundates Rachel's work with stuffed animals, cards, and even a barbershop quartet.

We also discuss: Dali museums, #Friends25 offers, and once again advocate mental health care...


TOW Green Jell-O and Red Clothing (and It Isn't Even Christmas)

TOW a Dutch Girl and a Troll Doll Nailed to a 2x4

Happy Thanksgiving, y'all! It's TOW the Football, and the gang decides to play some 3 on 3 in between turkey bastings. The winner gets -- the Geller Cup! The Geller Cup is also the name of this week's signature beverage -- a Pimm's cup with a Thanksgiving twist! A Dutch girl vies for Joey and Chandler's attention, Monica and Ross get really competitive, and Rachel goes really long. We also talk: Whole30, sore losers, Heidi gone Goth, and a MEGA Not-on-Netflix moment!
