Ross and Joey want to bail so they can go to a party with supermodels, and Rachel screws up the dessert. Why It's So Funny: While some sitcoms struggle to deliver compelling A- and B- plots, Friends was often able to successfully execute a half-dozen concurrent storylines and this episode is a prime example of the writers' ability to keep all of the plots in the air at once.
Here, Monica is keeping her relationship with Chandler a secret from her parents because they dislike him, and it turns out that their grudge is decades-old as Ross blamed Chandler for the pot smell in his room during sophomore year spring break. Meanwhile, as Rachel is making dessert, she accidentally creates half an English trifle and half a shepherd's pie, which Joey and Ross convince everyone to eat so dinner will end and they can leave.

Because Chandler's ridiculous past obsession with Janice Maggie Wheeler rears its ugly head once more as he gives Monica a romantic mixtape that was actually made for him by Janice, unaware it includes nasally mid-song interjections that will eventually blow up his spot. Best Quote: Whatever words constitute Phoebe trying to "sing along" as Ross plays the bagpipes. My favourite quote from 'Best of Friends' is naturally from Jess.
Jess also felt very 'strongly' about high school itself. I gathered this when she said "high school is where dreams go to die". I admire how Jess can carry on and have a positive attitude about her life even when she is being bullied. I can also relate a little to what she was feeling, because I myself didn't very much enjoy the transition between intermediate to high school. Something new I learned from this book was a how it would feel to be older.
As a fourteen year, I do feel that I have a lot of problems in my life, but the problems that my characters have are so different and they have so much more to lose if it is not solved. To me 60 seems so old, but when I read from Lizzies perspective she doesn't feel old at all. I guess it really does establish the point that you are only as old as you feel. I really enjoyed 'Best of Friends'. I think it was a really fun, easy book to read, with beautiful, melancholy moments as well as the funny, witty moments nearly all books have.

It's nice to see a novel where people actually resolve their problems and conflict in a reasonable way that's true to their character, and while each character has flaws, they know about their flaws, they understand their flaws, and they genuinely want better for themselves and the people they love.
It was nice to read something so wholesome and focused on so many aspects of family life in a way that mak I must say, I give strong credit to the author for such strong use of character development. It was nice to read something so wholesome and focused on so many aspects of family life in a way that makes you believe these families could exist somewhere, and aren't just a cliched, fake reproduction in the book for the sake of drama and plot.
Favourite characters: Erin and Sally, although I must say in the end, Abby and Lizzie grew on me immensely. Jess I found hard to deal with sometimes but was more interesting towards the end of the book. I genuinely disliked Lizzie's daughter Debra, and am so glad Lizzie's sister had the guts to put this spoilt brat in line. Shannon angered me and I felt there still could have been a little more resolution between Erin and Shannon.
The downsides: This book was so long and getting through it took about 9 days just because of the size of it.
I didn't like how it just skipped over weeks or months really quickly, then slowed right down in parts that didn't need to be so heavily concentrated. While it did need to be this long to cover the lives of all four women five including Jess I guess , it still could have benefited from a little more resolution.
While reading a book of this size, at the end I was hoping to find out what Erin's baby was and whether Abby took the chat show job in Dublin. Two little things that I would have even been satisfied knowing in a short epilogue or something.
I mean you don't write a page book and not tell me whether the baby was a boy or girl seeing how it had been a plot device for Erin most of the way. But if that is the book's only flaw, then it isn't too bad at all. I'm glad I picked up more of Cathy Kelly's books from Lifeline, I plan on moving onto another quite soon if it's a shorter one maybe View 1 comment. Aug 29, Betsy rated it really liked it. Here's a great example of why British chick lit is usually so much better than its American counterpart.
I don't know why it is; perhaps British chick-lit writers are better at characterizations, or maybe it's just that British characters are more appealing to me. In any event, this was a wonderful, absorbing read. Jun 14, Chloe Crew rated it it was amazing. Loved it. Very good characters, I was drawn to them all. I liked how the book would switch to the next characters narrative. Full of valuable lessons and allows you to see all points of view. Highly recommend if you enjoy reading about dysfunctional families, drama but with also a heartfelt message. Another easy summer read.
A book that is good for relaxing although the author does touch on some difficult topics like breast cancer. Thi is my second book by Cathy Kelly and I am enjoying them so far. Still have one left which I got from the library. Glad that I decided to give her a try cause thse are perfect books after reading some heavier stuff. Jun 10, Ispas Teodora rated it really liked it. Interesting book : I like very much the idea of inventing a cancer charity called "Life Beats Cancer" I really like that!
And one more thing, I like that Cathy Kelly is an optimistic woman and she'd made a beautiful ending where everything was getting better and better :. Jun 27, Msdot rated it it was ok. I usually found Cathy Kelly's books were easy to read and comforting in many level. This one though was abit of a drag to read. I was impatient to turn the page and skimmed read most of it because they were all too 'good to be true' and everything was so peachy Oct 24, aaliyah Rafeeq rated it really liked it.

I loved this book, I laughed and cried and sometimes wanted to slap some sense into some characters, Lizzie's daughter for one. Thoroughly enjoyed it and looking forward to reading more Cathy Kelly books. I enjoyed this book, but I have to say Lizzie's daughter's selfishness drove me crazy!
I couldn't believe that Lizzie would let her get away with what she did, so it took away some of the enjoyment of the book. Great read. Some funny bits and some sad. Mar 21, Regina Kitto rated it really liked it. Another lovely read. Mar 15, Marley rated it it was amazing. This book was great!!
