  • Way better than last year...

    This Thanksgiving episode was way better than the past years. Could be one of my favorites. Everyone has their own small plot, and everything just blows up in the end, which is what makes the show entertaining, which is probably why I like this episode so much. Rachel makes her dessert totally wrong. "I wasn't supposed to put meat in the trifle!" Joey wants to go to Janine's Thanksgiving with dancer friends. Monica wants to tell her parents about Chandler. Ross has a secret that made Chandler look bad, and everyone finds out in the end. An amazing Thanksgiving episode with a lot of cool plots.moreless

    The One where Ross Got High (Season 6) is a thanksgiving episode and possibly the best episode ever of Friends!! It's definetly the best thanksgiving episode!! It is absoloutley hilarious and hs loads of great lines. Ross and Monica's parents are coming over for dinner and everyones keeping secrets. 30 seconds pretty much sums it up - Monica: And Dad, you know that mailman that you got fired? He didn't steal your Playboys! Ross did!

    Ross: Yeah, well, Hurricane Gloria didn't break the porch swing, Monica did!

    Monica: Ross hasn't worked at the museum for a year!

    Ross: Monica and Chandler are living together!

    Monica: Ross married Rachel in Vegas! And got divorced! Again!

    Phoebe: I love Jacques Cousteau!

    Rachel: I wasn't supposed to put beef in the trifle!

    Joey: I wanna goooo!

    Judy: That's a lot of information to get in 30 seconds.moreless
  • "That's alot of information to get in in thirty seconds!" - Judy

    Another great Thanksgiving episode. Jack and Judy Geller are coming over for Thanksgiving dinner. I love these two characters, they are definitly my favorite parents from all the Friends.

    Monica hasn't told her parents that she's dating and living with Chandler because they don't like him. Turns out that back in '88 Ross got high and his parents caught him. So he told them that Chandler had gotten stoned and jumped out of the window.

    Rachel is trying to make a traditional English trifle for dessert but she accidentally puts beef in it. That's pretty gross if your not Joey.

    Joey and Ross want to get out of there as soon as possible so that they can celebrate Thanksgiving with Janine and her hot dancer friends.

    Phoebe has a weird crush on Jack but then she dreams that he cheats on her.

    Funny episode, the best part is with the 'information' that is given in thirty seconds.moreless

    Ross is forced to tell Chandler why Jack and Judy don't like him. Rachel tries to make dessert. Joey and Ross try and get out of Thanksgiving when they are invited to hang out with Janine and her dancer friends. Brilliant episode favourite one of season six, and my favourite thanksgiving episode, laughed my ass off when Rachael mess the pudding up and everyone pretended to eat it and like it, when Chandler threw his off the balcony and said a gull flew away and droped it down to the street, it was great and when Ross said "It taste like Feet" was also very funny.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • 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.

  • 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.

    • Chandler: Ross, your parents like me, right?
      Ross: Yes, of course they like you.
      Chandler: Well, Monica just told me that they don't.
      Ross: Yeah, they don't like you.

    • Rachel: Monica said I could make dessert this year.
      Joey: Uh, you're gonna cook something?
      Rachel: Hey, I cook.
      Chandler: Offering people gum is not cooking.

    • Jack: (After the secrets are revealed) Monica and Ross, I don't know what I'm going to do about the two of you.
      Chandler: I'll talk to them.

    • Ross: Alright, I'll tell them it wasn't Chandler who got high. Now who should I say it was?
      Monica: You! It's not like it's a big deal. You don't still do it or anything.
      Ross: Right. Now who should I say tricked me into doing it?

    • Ross: Beef in a dessert? No, no, no. There is no way.
      Joey: I know. And only one layer of jam? What is up with that?
      (Ross flips through the pages)
      Ross: Oh, my God. The pages are stuck together.
      Joey: Chandler!
      Ross: Oh, my God. She made half an English trifle and ... half a shepherd's pie!

    • Joey: (About the trifle) Now, if anyone needs help pretending like they like it, I learned some things in acting class. Try rubbing your stomach, or saying, "Mmmmm." Oh, and smiling.
      Chandler: Yeah, I'm not paying for those acting classes anymore.

    • Joey: (To Rachel) Hurry up! Did I not tell you that all Janine's friends are dancers, and that they're going to be drinking a lot?
      Rachel: Yes, but tell me again, because it's so romantic.

    • Phoebe: (About Jack) I dreamt that we were going to get married, and he left because he had to go fight a fire. And, um, so, okay, I went to a nightclub, and I saw him making out with a girl.
      Rachel: Oh my God, he dream cheated on you!

    • Phoebe: He used to be just Jack Geller, Monica and Ross's Dad. And now he's Jack Geller, dream hunk.
      Rachel: I don't know. You know to me he'll always be Jack Geller, walks in while you're changing.

    • Rachel: Technical question. How do you know when the butter is done?
      Monica: Well, it's done about 2 minutes before it looks like that.

    • Mrs. Geller: Ross, drugs? Divorced? Again?
      Mr. Geller: What happened, son?
      Ross: I ... I uh, I got tricked into all those things!

    • Rachel: Joey, God, your apartment is like a hundred degrees!
      Joey: Did it make you wanna walk around in your underwear?
      Rachel: No!
      Joey: (Frustrated) Still not hot enough!

    • Chandler: This is great, another Thanksgiving with nothing to give thanks for.
      Joey: Maybe I could give thanks for you shuttin' up, eh?
      Chandler: Maybe I could give thanks by taking my Playstation over to my new apartment.
      Joey: Well maybe I love ya'.

    • Chandler: Hey, I can be pretty charming, babe, I won you over, didn't I?
      Monica: (Hugging Chandler) I don't think you'll ever get my parents that drunk!

    • Monica: And Dad, you know that mailman that you got fired? He didn't steal your Playboys! Ross did!
      Ross: Yeah, well, Hurricane Gloria didn't break the porch swing, Monica did!
      Monica: Ross hasn't worked at the museum for a year!
      Ross: Monica and Chandler are living together!
      Monica: Ross married Rachel in Vegas! And got divorced! Again!
      Phoebe: I love Jacques Cousteau!
      Rachel: I wasn't supposed to put beef in the trifle!
      Joey: I wanna go!
      Judy: That's a lot of information to get in 30 seconds.

    • Chandler: What about all that "friends forever" stuff?
      Ross: I don't know, I was all high.

    • Joey: (To Ross) How you got three women to marry you I'll never know!

    • Chandler: Yes, I've always thought that a young man is a strong reflection of his father.
      Jack: Yes, I've always thought that too. Tell me, what does your father do?
      Chandler: Well ... he's the headline act in a gay burlesque show.
