  • Episode Description
  • Rachel's sister Amy tags along for Thanksgiving at Monica's place, because her (married) boyfriend cancels their plans. While watching the parade, Joey realizes that he forgot to show up for the Days of Our Lives cast float, and he asks Phoebe how to lie to his boss so he won't get in trouble. Monica obsesses about anybody damaging her best china. Amy, who is self-absorbed and can't remember anybody's correct names, thinks that if Rachel and Ross die, she will then get custody of Emma, but Rachel and Ross tell her that Monica and Chandler are going to get Emma. Arguments ensue, and Chandler tries to prove that he would be a good parent, even if Monica weren't around.moreless

  • Great character development for Chandler, the last episode before Ross and Rachel's relationship begins to deteriorate again, and absolutely hilarious. Also one of Aniston's best performances. My favorite episode. And it got an Emmy!

    • Amy: (To Ross and Rachel) How about this, you guys die and the crazy plate lady dies, then do I get the baby? Chandler: No, if crazy plate lad... (Monica stares at him) If Monica dies then I would get Emma, right? Rachel: Well actually... Chandler: Actually what? Ross: Well.. it's just, it's just in that case, then... Emma would go to my parents. Chandler: What? Amy: Hurts, doesn't it?

No shoes on the furniture.

    • Rachel: Amy, you remember Ross. Amy: Not really. But you are much cuter then that geeky guy she used to date. Ross: That was me.

    • Rachel: I would like to invite Amy to Thanksgiving. Ross: You know, I think that's a great idea. It'll be like the Pilgrims bringing the Indians syphilis.

    Trivia (10)

    • Continuity: Monica's fancy guest china is clearly very expensive dinnerware, whereas the plates that get broken are (understandably) cheap stoneware. The real continuity problem is that the cheap plates don't even look like the expensive dinnerware.

    • Trivia: Upon hearing the name "Muskogee" on television, Chandler exclaims, "Muskogee!? That's like four hours from Tulsa!". Chandler is indeed new to Oklahoma. Muskogee is only fifty miles from Tulsa, less than a one hour drive.

    • Goof: As Rachel's sister comes out from the back of Ross's apartment to say that she has been dumped by her boyfriend, a microphone is visible at the top of the screen as she walks towards the sofa to sit down.

    • Goof: In the scene where Rachel and her sister are fighting, a few seconds before they break the first plate, the flaps on the box Chandler is holding are open. However seconds later the flaps are now closed with Chandler still holding the box.

    • Goof: When Chandler breaks Monica's dishes, Emma's carseat rotates and then switches back between shots.
