  • "Please be crazy bitch again!"

    9.0
    One of the best episodes of season 10 (and indeed, in the later years of Friends), The One with Phoebe's Wedding gives us the last wedding on the show.



    It's a shame that the story didn't get more time. It feels somewhat rushed. When you think of the amount of time the writers spent on Ross' weddings and the Monica/Chandler-wedding, it seems obvious that this one could have been extended to two-three episodes. Maybe they feel they have done weddings too much by now?



    Anyway, Phoebe's wedding is certainly the funniest of them all. The episode is tight-packed with hilarious situations, most of which are carried by Lisa Kudrow and Courteney Cox. Monica as 'crazy bitch' wedding planner who clashes with Phoebe's plea for a nice, simple wedding, leading to Phoebe's hysterical yell during the wedding rehearsal ("I just wanted a simple wedding, where my BOYFRIEND CAN GO TO THE BATHROOM ANY TIME HE WANTS!"). Lisa Kudrow is simply amazing in this episode and once again shows herself as the strongest comedienne on Friends. An episode that revolves around Kudrow is obviously what this show, which is getting increasingly tired, needs. Congratulations to Phoebe.moreless

    Phoebe and Mike's wedding is on its way,and they've decided to give Monica the job of a wedding planner,which really wasn't the best idea.Monica(of course)arranges a fancy(and pretty boring)wedding,that is,until Phoebe fires her at the rehearsal dinner.

    At the end,the wedding takes place in unusual location,with even more unusual weather :)



    This episode was a nice comeback from some previous entries to the 10th season.It contained many funny moments,a perfect wedding storyline and...other stuff :P ***BEST QUOTES***

    Phoebe:This is my wedding!And I don't want 'this',or 'this',or 'this'!Okay?I just wanted a SIMPLE wedding where my fiancee can go to the bathroom anytime he wants!!!!



    Monica:I've even won awards for my organisation skills!

    Phoebe:Really?

    Monica:Uh-huh.I've printed them out on my computer!



    Joey:Friends,family,dog,thank you all for being here to witness this blessed event.The cold has now spread to my special part,so I'm gonna do the short version of this.



    Phoebe:I got married!



    Monica:The rehearsal dinner starts at 1800 hours.

    Phoebe:What?

    Monica:You don't know military time?

    Phoebe:Well,I must've been on the missile training on the day they taught that!

    Monica:Just subtract twelve!

    Phoebe:Ok...1800-12...1788...?

    Monica:SIX O'CLOCK!moreless
  • "I JUST WANTED A SIMPLE WEDDING! WHERE MY FIANCEE CAN GO TO THE BATHROOM ANYTIME HE WANTS!" - Phoebe

    9.8
    Phoebe is finally getting married. I love her and Mike together they complete each other with Phoebe being wonderfully weird, as Mike put it, Mike is a little more down to earth but can still love Phoebe. They have a lot of weddingepisodes in Friends and usually everything goes wrong. That was also the case in this one. Monica being the weddingplanner is driving Phoebe crazy, Rachel as the Maid of honor has to choose between Ross and Chandler for groomsman and Joey and Mike have a little misunderstanding as Joey has to fill in for Phoebe's stepfather and his very protective of his 'daughter'.



    Then, when everyone works out their differences the're's a blizzard that closes all the bridges and tunnels. For a second it looks like the wedding's not gonna happen but then Monica has a great idea that Phoebe should get married outside Central Perk which I thought was a great idea with Phoebe growing up on the street and everything. In the end everything works out, every Friend has a role in the wedding and Chandler ends up having the most organized sex anyone's ever had.moreless
  • Phoebe gets married to Mike. (Phoebes awesome!)

    9.8
    This episode is just great with Monica being Phoebes wedding planner and phoebe just not being able to take all the time restrictions etc. so she just explodes at her. I like phoebe so maybe why I liked this episode so much but either way it is awesome and could watch it again and still laugh my head off. I loved it when Phoebe fired Monica and had to deal with everyone herself overall a great episode were phoebe gets a wedding in the snow and you get a bareel full of laughs!



    Phoebe: (On the phone) No! We're gonna do it my way. (Listens) Because your way is stupid! Alright I gotta go. I have another call, Reverend.moreless

    Although this wasnt a two part episode (it really should have been), this was the best wedding.

Chandler and Ross discover at the rehearsal dinner that neither of them has a part in the wedding. Phoebe fires Monica. However, Mike needs to replace a groomsman, so he lets Phoebe choose one of them, although she gives the job to Rachel. Joey takes his role as the bride's dad way too seriously.

The day of the wedding, New York is hit with the worst snowstorm its seen in 20 years causing the wedding to be staged outside in a romantic setting in the snow.moreless

      Monica: Ah, well then there are gonna be a few surprises.

    • Chandler: (About not playing a role in Phoebe's wedding) This is like figure skating team all over again. I mean synchronized swimming. I mean, I mean the balance beam. (To Ross) Help me!
      Ross: Football!
      Chandler: Thank you.

    • Phoebe: (Yelling) Monica I can't do it like this! This is my wedding! Okay, I don't want this (Mimes hand twirling gesture), or this (taps watch), or this (Mimes "cut" motion) Okay? I just wanted a simple wedding. Where my fiancé can go to the bathroom anytime he wants!

    • Joey: (To Mike) So what are your intentions with my Phoebe?

    • Joey: I'm glad we had this little talk.
      Mike: Yes. Yeah and thanks for all the wedding night advice. (Walks away) That didn't make me uncomfortable at all.

    • Phoebe: (On the phone) No! We're gonna do it my way. (Listens) Because your way is stupid! Alright I gotta go. I have another call, Reverend.

    • Chandler: Wow! Aren't you going to be cold?
      Phoebe: I don't care. I'll be my something blue.

    • Chandler: I'm so glad we're having this rehearsal dinner. I so rarely get to practice my meals before I eat them.
      Phoebe: Chandler, what did we say was your one gift to us?
      Chandler: No stupid jokes. But I thought that was for the actual wedding.
      Phoebe: Rehearse it.

    • Chandler: That really was an incredible wedding.
      Joey: It was, yeah. I kind of don't want it to end. Hey, you wanna come in for a drink and a bite of corsage?
      Chandler: I'd love to, but it's 2300 hours and I'm about to have the most organized sex anyone's ever had.

    • Monica: I need you at the rehearsal dinner tonight at 1800 hours.

      Monica: You don't know military time?
      Phoebe: Why, I must have been in missile training the day they taught that.
      Monica: Just subtract twelve.
      Phoebe: Okay, so... 1800 minus twelve is... one thousand, seven hundred and...
      Monica: Six o'clock!

    • Phoebe: (Exchanging vows) When I was growing up, I didn't have a normal mom and dad, or a regular family like everybody else. And I always knew that something was missing. But now I'm standing here today, knowing that I have everything I'm ever gonna need. You are my family.
      Mike: Phoebe, you're so beautiful. You're so kind, so generous, so wonderfully weird. Everyday with you is an adventure. I can't believe how lucky I am, and I can't wait to share my life with you forever.

    • Monica: Nothing kills rehearsal dinner like long speeches. Okay just get in, do your thing and get out.
      Mike: Is that what you say to Chandler?

    • Monica: (To Chandler, checking her clipboard) I have you scheduled for nudity at 2300 hours.

    • Ross: I can't believe we're going to be the only people who aren't in this wedding!
      Chandler: I know. I hate being left out of things!
      Ross: And it's a wedding! It'll be weird if I'm not in it!

    • Joey: (Performing the ceremony) Welcome, friends, family, dog. The cold has now spread to my special place, so I'm gonna do the short version of this.

    • Phoebe: So, Rach?
      Rachel: Yeah?
      Phoebe: Where's Emma?
      Rachel: Monica made me send her to my mother's. Apparently babies and weddings don't mix.
      (Monica enters the room)
      Monica: Are you still crying about your damn baby?

    • Phoebe: Help me.
      Monica: What?
      Phoebe: I want you to be crazy bitch again.
