Trivia: Phoebe's entire family was absent from her wedding including Frank Sr., Phoebe Sr., Ursula, Frank Jr., Alice, and the triplets.
Continuity: Phoebe is superstitious. In "The One with All the Wedding Dresses" she believes that on the wedding day, the groom should not see the bride before the wedding. However, on her own wedding day, Phoebe and Mike hang out together before the ceremony.
Note: Many would argue that the groom isn't supposed to see the bride in her wedding dress before the ceremony, but otherwise it's okay.
Continuity: When Chandler asked Rachel if she ever got left out, she said no. In "The One with the Lottery" Rachel says she never got picked. In "The One with the Football" she was upset about being picked last, and was excluded from most of the game.
Continuity: After Phoebe tells Monica that she is fired from being her wedding planner, Monica says that she has never been fired. However, in "The One with Five Steaks and an Eggplant" Monica gets fired for taking a five-steak kickback.
(Phoebe has asked Joey to give her away and he's accepted)
Phoebe: (to Joey, tenderly) I hope... I hope you know how much you mean to me.
Joey: (voice breaking) I hope you know... (turns around) I don't want you to see your father cry. Go to your room!
Monica: I need you at the rehearsal dinner tonight at 1800-hours.
Phoebe: Uh-huh. Okay, what time is that?
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... eighteen hundred minus twelve is... one thousand, seven hundred and--
Monica: Six o'clock!
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.
Phoebe: So, Rach'?
Phoebe: Where's Emma?
Rachel: Monica made me send her to my mother's. Apparently babies and weddings don't mix.
Monica: (coming into the room) Are you still crying about your damn baby?
Chandler: (about not playing a role in Phoebe's wedding) This is like the figure-skating team all over again! (realizes how girlie it sounded) I mean... synchronized swimming! I mean, I mean the balance beam! (to Ross) Help me!
Chandler: Thank you.
Monica: Pheebs, spit that out, that has pork in it.
Phoebe: I thought the pot-stickers were supposed to be vegetarian!
Monica: Yeah, I changed them... I sent you a fax about it.
Phoebe: I don't have a fax machine.
Monica: Huh. Well then there are gonna be a few surprises.
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: (to Mike) So what are your intentions with my Phoebe?
Monica: Nothing kills a rehearsal dinner like long speeches. Okay. Just get in, do your thing and get out.
Mike: Is that what you say to Chandler?
Phoebe: (yelling) Monica I can't do it like this! This is my wedding! Okay, I don't want this (mimes twirling hand, move-it-along gesture), or this (taps watch), or this (mimes throat-cutting "end-it" gesture) Okay? I just wanted a simple wedding.... (screaming) Where my fiancé can go to the bathroom anytime he wants!!
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.
Joey: I'm glad we had this little talk.
Mike: Yes. Yeah, and thanks for all the wedding night advice. (walking away) That didn't make me uncomfortable at all.
Chandler: You told us both we could be in the wedding?
Rachel: Well... In my defense, you weren't supposed to tell each other!
Phoebe: Help me.
Phoebe: I want you to be crazy bitch again.
Monica: (shouting) Level one alert! I repeat, level one... This is not a drill! (to the gang) Okay, we've got a situation, the minister just called, he's snowed in, he can't make it.
Mike: Oh, no!
Joey: (to Monica) Oh, hey, don't worry. I'm still ordained from your wedding.
Joey: Yeah. You think I'd give up being a minister and start paying to ride the subway? Huh.
Ross: ...Ministers don't ride the subway for free.
Joey: I had to read the Bible pretty carefully, but... Yah, we do!
Monica: (to Chandler, checking her clipboard) I have you scheduled for nudity at 2300-hours.
Chandler: (as Phoebe removes her coat) Wow! Aren't you going to be cold?
Phoebe: I don't care. I'll be my something blue.
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: (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.
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.
