Friends’ best-squandered opportunity was an excellent episode. Friends aired from 1994 to 2004, producing unforgettable episodes and strong character interactions. Rachel and Monica and Joey and Chandler are two famous friendships. One episode of Friends missed a chance to be even great.
Chandler falls in love with a cheesecake he accidentally receives in this episode. Rachel loves it after a taste. Chandler and Rachel grow infatuated with cheesecake and travel to Chicago to eat it.
Rachel, Chandler, and Joey eat their neighbor’s stolen cheesecake on the floor after squabbling.
“The One With All the Cheesecakes” squandered Rachel and Chandler’s friendship. They have a fun, unique dynamic in Friends. The cheesecake narrative is silly and hilarious and could’ve worked with any pairing, but it’s fantastic that Chandler and Rachel grew addicted. Matthew Perry and Jennifer Aniston have excellent comedic timing, but they’re funnier together. Rachel and Chandler’s moments in “The One With All the Cheesecakes” highlight the episode.
Chandler and Rachel are the series’ least-used character couple, despite “The One With All the Cheesecakes.” Rachel and Chandler were only on screen 0.7% of the time without the other four Friends key characters. Chandler and Rachel might have had more storylines together. More Rachel and Chandler bonding sequences, less Joey and Rachel romance.
Rachel and Chandler are good friends. Friends made a mistake by not giving Rachel and Chandler more stories together. Rachel’s supervisor, Joanna, handcuffs Chandler to an office chair in Friends season 4’s “The One With the ‘Cuffs,” and Rachel tries to rescue him. In “The One With the Two Parties,” Chandler soothes Rachel following her parents’ divorce, while Rachel comforts Chandler in “The One Where Joey Moves Out.” Rachel and Chandler’s funny and lovely friendship deserves more screen time.
Rachel and Chandler have hilarious and heartwarming storylines together. “The One With All the Cheesecakes” showcases Chandler and Rachel’s comedic chemistry. Friends wasted a chance to feature the two characters in more plots without the other key characters.
