help from fans of FRIENDS!

  1. hey everyone!! i have just gotten an assignment for my psychology class and i'm really excited about it. the assignment is to do a 1000 word paper that convinces the reader that a fictional character i choose suffers from a particular psychological disorder. anyway, i have chosen monica gellar as my fictional character with ocd as her psychological disorder. this is where i am hoping fans of the show can help me out. i have done some googling to back up my theory and i have a few episodes where monica displays ocd. i have tow the but, tow dirty girl, and a couple others that i'm not sure of the episode name. however...there are sooooo many episodes to go through. i need to narrow down my search so if you know of a particular episode that i could search for on youtube i'd appreciate it. or if you happen to have any stories where monica exhibits ocd please share. i forgot how much i loved this show and i have to say this is the most fun i've had doing an assignment in a while!!

    also...i posted this in general nursing discussion because most people...not just students love/loved the show friends!

    thanks everyone.....

    Thanks-giving episode. I believe it was the one that Brad Pitt Guest starred in this one.

    What about when she acts as a Wedding Planner at Phoebe's Wedding? At least I think it was at her wedding.

    This is another example that I found; Monica is obsessive to the point that she even cleans her cleaning supplies!! She uses a Dustbuster to remove dirt from her vacuum cleaner and wishes there was an even smaller vacuum to clean the Dustbuster!

    Oooooh! My favorite! I own every season and I've seen every episode about a million times. A few that I can think of are "TOW the Stain" "The One Where Everyone Finds Out" and I can't remember what this one is called but it's the one where everyone is making New Year's Resolutions (Phoebe's is to fly a jet, Chandler's is to not make fun of his friends, Joey's is to learn to play the guitar, Ross's is to do something new everyday, Rachel's is to gossip less). Monica's initially was to be less obsessed with being neat and tidy but after Rachel crushed some cereal on the floor she changed it to recording more of their lives by taking more pictures and then as she exits the room she turns to Chandler and says, in a very whiny tone of voice, "Chaaaandleeeeeer!" to indicate that he needed to clean the mess up ASAP!

    I'm sure I'll think of some more later. Hope that helped. Good luck and kudos on the coolest topic for a paper that I've EVER heard! redpinkhe

    Yeah! That's the one where Rachel and Phoebe think Chandler is cheating on Monica. Very funny episode!

    thanks chynagrove!! i watched "tow all the resolutions" and monica's resolution is to "be less obsessed with being neat and clean". can't get a better quote than that!! thanks for the suggestion! and....this episode was so funny too! poor chandler not being able to joke about ross in his leather pants....i loved it!

    I dont remeber the name of the episode, but the one where Chandler opens the hall closet and finds a mess, her one area that she let go.....I think in that episode they talk quite a bit about her OCD

    Ahhh! Another good one! The One with the Secret Closet! Season 8-Episode 14. When he finally gets it open Monica's excuse it that "this is all the stuff that didn't fit into any category" and when Chandler asks if he can store some stuff in there too Monica says no because she's afraid he'll "mess it up" lol.

    This is reaffirming why I love this show. As if I needed anymore reasons to love it!

    That episode was pulled from youtube but I was able to find on another site! I have another really good quote I'm going to use from that secret closet episode. After Monica declares that she is sick, Chandler tells her; "I don't love you because you're organised. I love you in spite of it".
