  • One of the best friends episodes ever.

    Thanksgiving episode number six. The best of season 6 and the best thanksgiving up to this point. Thanksgiving episodes are always brilliant and this one does not disappoint. Jack and Judy Geller come for thanksgiving dinner, and Monica reveals she hasn't told them that her and Chandler are living together because they hate Chandler. Rachel is in charge of making the dessert and Monica doesn't have a back up if it goes wrong. It does. Phoebe finds Jack irresistable and Joey and Ross want to go to Janine's party for the day. It turns out that Jack and Judy don't like Chandler because one night, in college, Ross got high and blamed it on him. Phoebe overcomes her fantasies of Mr. Geller and decides she loves Jacques Cousteau. Rachel puts beef into the trifle she is making because the pages are stuck together in the recipe book she is using. Ross is forced to tell his parents the truth and the climax of the episode could not have been better. Ross and Monica start revealing stories about what they did in their past and in the end everybody starts shouting in one of the best Friends scenes ever:

    Monica: And Dad, you know that mailman 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!
    Mrs. Geller: That's a lot of information to get in 30 seconds.

    One of the best Friends episodes ever.
