[2.10] The One With Russ
Monica gets back together with Fun Bobby, who has a drinking problem. She successfully helps him give up drinking, but then he is unhappy and not fun anymore. Joey gets chosen to play the role of Dr. Drake Ramoray, a neurosurgeon on Days of Our Lives after he sleeps with the casting lady. Rachel begins dating a guy named Russ, who bears an uncanny resemblance to Ross (both roles were played by David Schwimmer, yet Russ is credited as being played by «Snaro», a pseudonym of Schwimmer’s and a tribute to a friend). Eventually, Rachel dumps Russ, telling him he reminds her of someone, though she doesn’t tell him about his resemblance to Ross. In the end Russ and Julie (Lauren Tom) hook up.
