    This is a really good episode. It was hilarious. Chandler even joins in eventually when the dinner is ruined and they have to eat his grilled cheese stuff. It was terrible that Rachel missed her airplane, especially after the other friends ended up paying for her to go spend Thanksgiving with her family. The Underdog balloon getting away was hilarious as well, since no one was hurt. The dinner being ruined, made it quite funny. I thought the fact that everyone wanted different kind of potatoes and that Monica actually agreed to make them all was rather funny. She has a weird need to please people, even her parents who play favorites with Ross. The fact that their parents would go off to Puerto Rico for Thanksgiving and leave them on their own was funny as well.
