Friends: The One With Russ

Rachel begins dating Russ, who looks, speaks and acts exactly like Ross, startling the others. However, Rachel fails to see their common grounds, forcing Phoebe to step in. Meanwhile, Monica reunites with alcoholic old flame, Fun Bobby. Monica realises the extend of his drinking and helps him on the wagon. But without drink, Fun Bobby turns into Dull Bobby as he becomes incredibly boring without drink, which causes Monica to hit the bottle herself. Elsewhere, Joey is offered a lead role in soap opera Days of Our Lives. But there's a condition - he must sleep with the castling lady.
