  • One of the best season premieres of Friends.

    9.5
    This episode was absolutely hilarious, Hilarious as the season finale. I feel like Friends sort of changed their styler, going in to season six. I don't know, it just seems different. I love all the signs that Monica & Chandler go through that is telling them to get married. Ross & Rachel waking up in the same bed was hilarious! Ross decides not to get an annulment cause he doesn't want to be the divorce guy, then pretends to get one, and only tells Phoebe which was stupid of him. Two great cliffhangers. Like Chandler & Monica moving in together, and Ross not getting the annulmentmoreless

    This episode was just funny! Rachel and Ross were like WTF when they were in bed together. Ross' back...ha ha ha. I wish Rachel seen that because she would be like Oh My God!! I don't think it was too early for Monica and Chandler to get married. I think the timing was perfect! Joey just slept in the taxi cab. If I was Phoebe I would take the plane and say to Joey that he drived it so he can drive it back. Why does Phoebe have a taxi cab? Doesn't she have a normal car? So Ross still loves Rachel I heard!!moreless
  • It is a very special episode

    I think this episode is great, Monica and chandler almost getting married, Rachel and Ross getting drunk and then getting married, Joey acting like Joey and Phebes haressing an elder but that elder saw it coming so i dont really feel sad for that elder. I think this episode was very funny and I just loved Rachel and Ross's little drawings on their faces and Joey's hands were cvery funny and Joey is just so cute and i'm just being annoying huh? i'm sorry but i have to finish this I just the Monica and Chandler Rachel and Ross i'm going to watch this episode again right nowmoreless
  • Cool episode

    9.8
    This episode is really cool, Chandler and Monica do not want to get married anymore but can not figure out the way to tell the other to break it up, later they decide not to do it, if they keep getting signs, but everything points out for them to get married, and finally Chandler decides to move in with Monica. Joey and Phoebe go to New York at car, and Phoebe gets mad at Joey, and Rachel and Ross try to figure out their divorce. Really cool!moreless
  • Really funny a great ending to Vegas

    9.1
    AS Ross and Rachel confront the fact that they are married you can see the panic in Ross's face as he is thinking of another divorce.



    The Phoebe and Joey cab ride is comical, I can't beleive he let a random stranger into the cab, let alone let him drive.

  • TRIVIA (13)

    • Trivia: At Central Perk when Ross and Rachel are talking about staying married, Ross is drinking a mock soda called "&W Root Beer."

    • Goof: Right after Joey picks up the hitchhiker, the camera angle changes to the cab driving down the desert road, and suddenly there is only one person in the cab.

    • Trivia: In this episode Joey sang "Space Oddity" by David Bowie. In "The One Where Ross Can't Flirt" Chandler sang this song.

    • Goof: When Chandler sits down, his plate only has eggs on it. A little later in the scene, he suddenly has bacon on his plate.

    • Goof: After Ross and Rachel get married, Rachel exits to the left. A few seconds later Joey and Phoebe enter the same way without having seen Rachel.

    • Continuity: Although this episode opens with the last scene of the previous episode, there is a mistake. In this version of the scene, Rachel does not say "Okay, wait."

    • Goof: During breakfast after Ross says that he doesn't love to get divorced, Rachel's hand suddenly is on her face.

    • Goof: During breakfast after Phoebe says she's drunk right now, Chandler's hand goes from his face to by his side when the camera angle changes.

    • Goof: When Ross and Rachel come down to breakfast, all the writing is gone from their faces. However, in the episode before this, they were told on the phone that the pen would not come off. How was it they were able to get the writing off all of a sudden?

    • Goof: When Joey and Phoebe are running into the chapel, Joey is yelling for Phoebe to hurry and she says okay. If you look closely at their mouths, you can tell that neither of their lips are moving.

    • Trivia: Chandler's line, "They aren't as much dating as they are two vodka bottles walking around in human form," was actually Matthew Perry's own improvised line when the writers were stuck with an unfunny punchline. This can be seen on the DVD extras.

  • QUOTES (23)

    • Chandler: Alright, should we just get married? Should we do it? All the signs are telling us to do it.
      Monica: I'm sick of the signs. It's too fast, I'm happy with the way things are.
      Chandler: Me too.
      Monica: I don't want things to change, do you?
      Chandler: No!
      Monica: Alright, then! Then nothing changes and everything's great and everything stays the same. Now you go unpack because it's been three days and it's driving me insane.
      Chandler: Jeez, relax. It's not like we're marr-- ahhh!

    • Rachel: The bottom line, Ross, is that we cannot stay married.
      Ross: I don't know if that's true.
      Rachel: Okay, yeah but it is!
      Ross: Okay, you know what this is? This is a difference of opinion. And when that happens in a marriage--

    • Monica: What are you guys gonna do?
      Rachel: Well, I guess we just find a divorce lawyer.

      Monica: Yeah, that guy's finally gonna be able to put in that pool.
      Chandler: Now, this one's free, right? Because you paid for the first two, so you get the third one for free.

      Phoebe: Good. Good. I was just testing you.
      Monica (to Chandler who sits down): Oh, hi. Hi. We were just talking about bacon.

      Phoebe: Is it a meatball sub?
      Joey: That is incredible! You are the master!

    • Monica: I can't believe Ross and Rachel got married.
      Joey: I know. I didn't even know they were dating again.
      Chandler: Well, I don't think they're as much dating as they are two bottles of vodka walking around in human form.

    • Phoebe: Yeah I'm drunk right now. (Everyone looks at her) What? I can't have a mimosa at breakfast? I'm on vacation!

    • Phoebe: (About Vegas weddings) What's the big deal, you know? It's not like it's a real marriage.
      Chandler: What?

      Monica: What are you talking about? If you get married in Vegas, you're married everywhere.

    • Rachel: (To Ross) This is not a marriage. This is the world's worst hangover!

      Joey: Don't you think I asked him that before he got in?

    • Rachel: All right, just please take a moment here and think about what you're asking of me, okay?
      Ross: I am asking you to do me a favor.
      Rachel: You are asking me to be your wife.
      Ross: And as my wife, I think you should grant me this favor.

    • Monica: How do I tell Chandler that it's too soon? It's gonna break his heart, he's gonna think I don't love him anymore.
      Phoebe: Well, you don't.
      Monica: Yes, I do.
      Phoebe: Well good, good. I was just testing you.

    • Ross: No-no, that's-that's not my thing! I do not love getting divorced!
      Phoebe: Yes you do! This is your third divorce! You love divorce so much you're probably gonna marry it! Then it won't work out and you're gonna have to divorce it, divorcing guy. (Pause) I'm so drunk.

      Phoebe: Always!
      Ross: I didn't get the annulment.
      Phoebe: What?!
      Ross: We're still married! Don't tell Rachel! See you later.

    • Ross: Laugh it up! But the joke's on you, because we don't need to get divorced, okay? We're just gonna get an annulment.
      Joey: An annulment? Ross, I don't think surgery's the answer here!

    • Chandler: You know, I was thinking, what if I, uh, unpack here?
      Monica: Then all your stuff would be here.
      Chandler: Well, what if all my stuff was here?
      Monica: Then you'd be going back and forth all the time. I mean, it doesn't make any sense.
      Chandler: Okay. What if we lived together and you understand what I'm saying?
