20 Worst Episodes of Friends Ever Made (According to the Internet)
“The One With the Evil Orthodontist” – 7.9
Oh, the early days of Friends. Remember Barry? He features prominently in this episode, as he and Rachel begin seeing one another again even though he’s now engaged to Mindy. The episode gives Rachel closure and allows her to realize that she ultimately made the right decision in breaking up with him.
Elsewhere, Chandler is upset because a woman he likes won’t return his calls. The episode isn’t bad, but it feels more like a bump along the road than a blockbuster in and of itself. It gets Rachel ready for her relationship with Ross, which is what eats up the end of the show’s first season.
