  • Monica convinces Chandler to go down to Las Vegas and get his dad to come to the wedding. Meanwhile, Joey tries out wearing women's underwear and Rachel gets to drive Monica's Porsche.

    This was actually a great episode. The best part had to have been when Chandler asks his father to attend Chandler and Monica's wedding. It was funny and had just the right touch of good-feeling. Kathleen Turner does an excellent job as "Helena Handbasket" or Chandler's father. Joey tries on Woman's underwear for the first time. This is one of the few times that Joey stretches out to his feminine side (the others being when he got the purse and when Janine moved in). It's pretty funny seeing Joey, who always come off as somewhat manly, show a girly side. The Ross and Rachel driving the Porshe part wasn't that exciting, except for when Ross tries to flirt with the officer. That was pretty funny.
    All-in-all, this was a good episode, a Friends classic.
