Season 7 Episode 25

The One with Chandler and Monica's Wedding (2)

Aired Thursday 8:00 PM May 17, 2001 on NBC



  • Trivia

    • Continuity: When they show the inside of Monica's bathroom, the toilet is right next to the sink, however, in "The One with Frank Jr." when Joey is tiling her floor, the toilet is against the wall opposite the door.

    • Continuity: When Ross finds Chandler in his office he says, "So this is your office." But he's already been in Chandler's office in "The One with the Worst Best Man Ever".
      Note: Actually, Ross had never been in that particular office, since as we discover, Chandler is in the wrong office (Mike Smith's).

    • Only on Television: Since, as we learn, Chandler is in Mike Smith's office by mistake, the question arises, how did Ross and Phoebe find him in the first place? Phoebe had worked as Chandler's secretary in "The One with the Ick Factor", so she knew exactly where his office was. After checking there, she and Ross would have naturally concluded that Chandler wasn't at work after all, and would have just left.

    • Continuity: Chandler is freaking out because he's afraid that like his parents, his marriage will be a disaster. Ross asks him, "Chandler, have you ever put on a black cocktail dress and invited me up to your hotel room? ...then you are neither of your parents". Apparently Chandler's little talk with his mother in Season 1's, "The One with Mrs. Bing" didn't take. If his mother merely kissing Ross offended him, how would he react to them having sex?

    • Continuity: Monica begins her wedding vows with "Chandler, for so long I wondered if I would ever find my prince, my soul mate..." However, next season in "The One Where Joey Tells Rachel", Monica says that she doesn't believe in soul mates.

    • Goof: During the ceremony when Monica moves to take the ring from Rachel, we notice that she is wearing heavy brown (comfortable?) shoes under her wedding dress.

    • Goof: When Chandler and Monica walk up to the altar, Monica is holding her bouquet in her left hand, and Chandler's hand with her right hand. When the shot changes, she is holding her bouquet with both hands.

    • Goof: When Phoebe and Ross are in Chandler's office and Ross says to him, "Then you are neither of your parents", Chandler shrugs then de-shrugs, and seconds later he de-shrugs again.

  • Quotes

    • Rachel: (to Ross about his search for Chandler) Anything...?
      : No... I talked to Joey on the set, he hasn't heard from him. I... I talked to Chandler's parents... again...
      Phoebe: You told them he was missing?
      Ross: No, I made it seem like I was just calling to chat. I'm pretty sure they both think I'm interested in them.

    • (Rachel is trying to keep Monica preoccupied until the others find Chandler)
      Monica: I thought we'd start with my makeup and then do my hair.
      Rachel: Okay, uh, but before you do that. I, I, I need you to talk to me.
      Monica: About what?
      Rachel: Um... (pretending to fall apart) I'm never gonna get married!
      Monica: Yeah, you will! The right guy is just around the corner! Okay, are we done with that?
      Rachel: No Monica! I'm serious! Ach, maybe I should just forget about it. Become a lesbian or something.
      Monica: Any woman would be lucky to have ya.
      Rachel: Well maybe it would make me feel better if I slept with Joey.
      Monica: (suddenly concerned) Rachel! You okay?!

    • Chandler: (to Ross while still at the office) If I go home, we're gonna become the Bings! I can't be the Bings!
      Ross: What's wrong with being the Bings?
      Chandler: The Bings have horrible marriages! They yell, they fight, and they use the pool boy as a pawn in their sexual games!
      Ross: Chandler, have you ever put on a black cocktail dress and asked me up to your hotel room?
      Chandler: No...
      Ross: ...then you are neither of your parents!

    • Ross: (to Chandler) We're just gonna go home and take a shower... that's not scary... right?
      Chandler: Depends on what you mean by "we."

    • Judy: (about Chandler) Well, he better not come by here, he can't see the bride in the wedding dress...
      Nora: As I recall, when we got married... (her eyes go to Charles) I saw the groom in the wedding dress.
      Charles: But that was after the wedding. It's not bad luck then.
      Nora: Honey, it isn't good luck.

    • (Ross has explained his search for Chandler by saying they're playing hide and seek)
      : (to Ross who's in a panic) What's going on?
      Ross: Chandler's gone again!
      Phoebe: Oh, my God! ...Why would you play hide and seek with someone you know is a flight risk?

    • (Joey is anxious to leave the set to officiate at the wedding, but his costar is drunk)
      : (in his dressing room, trying to cut his steak with a prop sword) You wouldn't happen to have a very big fork?
      Joey: So, I just talked to the director... that's it! We're done for the day!
      Richard: We finished the scene?
      Joey: Yeah... You were wonderful.
      Richard: As were you.
      Joey: So, I got your car--it's right outside...
      Richard: Why? Are we done for the day?
      Joey: That's... what you told me...
      Richard: Thank-you, you're welcome. (starts to lie down on the couch)
      Joey: No, we gotta go. Come on. (lifts Richard over his shoulder) Here we go...
      Richard: (looking down at Joey's backside) Is that my ass?

    • (Nora and Helena walk down the aisle on either side of Chandler)
      : (misty-eyed) Our little boy is getting married...
      Nora: (to Chandler) Ohhh... look at you... so handsome...
      Chandler: (to Nora, affectionately) You look beautiful, Mom...
      (Helena clears her throat, pointedly)
      Chandler: (taking the hint) You look beautiful too, Dad...

    • Priest: Are you Chandler?
      Chandler: Are you... Joey?

    • Ross: (walking down the aisle with Rachel and Phoebe on either side) Huh, this is nice.
      Phoebe: What?
      Ross: I've never walked down the aisle knowing it can't end in divorce.

    • Judy: (walking Monica down the aisle) I wish your grandmother had lived to see this.
      Monica: (gesturing) She's right there.
      Judy: Not that old crone. My mother.

    • Monica: (aside to Chandler about Joey's substitute officiant) Who is this? 
      Priest: I'm Father Karabasos.
      Chandler: (in Monica's ear) He's Greek Orthodox.
      Rachel: (leaning in) As are you...

    • (During the ceremony, with Joey officiating, Monica and Chandler exchange vows)
      : Chandler, for so long I... I wondered if I would ever find my prince, my soul mate. Then three years ago, at another wedding I turned to a friend for comfort... and instead, I found everything that I'd ever been looking for my whole life. And now… here we are… with our future before us… and I only want to spend it with you... my prince, my soul mate, my friend--unless you don't want to... You go!
      Joey: Chandler...?
      (Ross leans in to give Chandler his vows)
      Chandler: (to Ross) No, that's okay.
      (Ross nods and retreats.)
      Chandler: Monica, I thought this was going to be the most difficult thing I ever had to do. But when I saw you walking down that aisle I realized how simple it was. I love you. Any surprises that come our way, it's okay, because I will always love you. You are the person I was meant to spend the rest of my life with. You wanna know if I'm sure? (he leans in and kisses her)

    • Chandler: (tenderly, after he and Monica are married) I love you... and I know about the baby...
      Monica: (confused) What baby...?
      Chandler: Our baby...
      Monica: (still not getting it) We have a baby...?
      Chandler: (also confused) Phoebe found your pregnancy test in the trash...
      Monica: I didn't take a pregnancy test...
      Chandler: Then... who did...?
      Phoebe: (looking on, misty-eyed) Look at them... Ach! ...and they're gonna have a baby...
      Rachel(as the camera slowly moves in on her, she smiles and nods) ...Uh-huh... (but we realize by her concerned expression that the pregnancy test was hers)
