From Joey’s beef sweats to a funny guest appearance Brad Pitt, this one has it all. But we are getting ahead of ourselves. “The One With the Rumor” begins with Monica declaring that she won’t cook turkey because half the gang doesn’t like it. Joey, not happy about this, changes Monica’s mind by promising to finish the whole bird himself.
Meanwhile, Monica, Ross and Rachel’s high school classmate Will (Pitt) join them. However, Will is upset to learn that Rachel attends, as she was not very nice to him in high school. During the meal, Will reveals that he and Ross are in the “I Hate Rachel” club and a rumor starts that he is intersexual. (Note: This part of the plot hasn’t aged too well.) Before Rachel gets completely upset, Monica reminds her friend that she started a rumor about Ross and the 50-year-old librarian—which isn’t a rumor at all. , according to Ross’ confession.
Problematic jokes aside, the dynamic between the married Pitt and Aniston is pretty funny.
