  • Quotes (23)

    • Rachel: You guys, it was bananas, cream and beef! I just cannot believe that you ate that so that I wouldn't feel bad. Monica: Well, actually, I didn't eat mine. It's still in the bathroom. Joey: No it isn't, I ate that. Judy: And we left ours in Monica's bedroom. Joey: Nope, got it and (Points to Jack) got yours too.

    • Ross: (After eating Rachel's trifle) It tastes like feet. Joey: I like it! Ross: Are you kidding?! Joey: What's not to like? Custard, good. Jam, good. Meat, good!

    • Chandler: (About Ross's parents not liking him) Do you know why? Ross: Maybe it's because you're really sarcastic or maybe it's cause you-- Chandler: If people don't know, they shouldn't just guess!

    • Monica: (Referring to her parents) They don't like you. I'm sorry. Chandler: What? Why? Monica: Maybe because you used to be aloof or that you're really sarcastic or that you joke around all the time or that you take off your clothes and throw them on the couch. Chandler: Is this why they don't like me or why you don't like me?

    • Rachel: Hey, Mon, look, I'm melting butter. Monica: That's great, Rach. You now have the cooking skills of a hot day.

    Notes (4)

    • International Episode Titles: Czech Republic: Hříchy Rossova mládí (Sins of Ross Youth)

    • Elliot Gould is credited as a "Special Appearance."

    • Christina Pickles receives the "And" credit.

    • This episode runs 25:31 on DVD (a typical sitcom runs about 22:00). One extra scene is at the end of the show where Janine comes to Monica and Chandler's place and Monica introduces her to her mom and dad.

    Trivia (5)

    • Continuity: In "The One With Phoebe's Birthday Dinner," which aired in 2002, Ross claims Rachel hasn't cooked since 1996. But in this episode, which aired in 1999, she cooked the dessert for everyone.

    • Goof: When Rachel makes half an English Trifle and half a Shepherd's Pie, it is credited to the pages being stuck together. Considering that the layer of beef sautéed with peas and onions is in the middle of the concoction, this is impossible. There is no way Rachel could have been instructed to add other layers, such as bananas and whip cream, on top.

    • Magna Doodle: A drawing of an astronaut standing on the moon with a spaceship and a view of Earth in the background

    • Goof: When they showed the inside of Rachel's old room there is not much furniture to sit on. There is just a small chair, but when Phoebe walked out of the room she told Rachel that she was just starting to take her Thanksgiving nap. What was she going to sleep on?

    • Factual Error: In this episode, everyone says that Rachel accidentally mixes the ingredients of an English Trifle recipe and a Shepherd's Pie recipe when making her dessert. Actually a Shepherd's Pie is made with lamb. Rachel's "beef-custard thing" is half a Cottage Pie, which is made from beef, and half an English Trifle.

    Allusions (2)

    • Phoebe: Yeah, but then Jacques Cousteau came and he kicked his ass for betraying me! Jacques Cousteau was a French naval officer, explorer, ecologist, filmmaker, scientist, photographer, and researcher.

    • Monica: So guess who's coming to Thanksgiving dinner. Chandler: Sidney Poitier? Sidney Poitier, an American actor, is known for his roles in To Sir, With Love, In the Heat of the Night, and Guess Who's Coming to Dinner. He was the first black actor to win an Academy Award for Best Actor.
