In this classic Valentine's Day clip from the first season of Friends, Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow), Monica (Courteney Cox), and Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) are complaining about their recent string of jerk dates when Phoebe suggests they change their luck by having a cleansing ritual where they burn things they got from their bad boyfriends, like boxer shorts and gross naked pictures. Things go wrong when the fire gets out of control, but then go right when hunky firemen show up, then go wrong again when they turn out to be jerks, too.
