Episode Recap

Rachel hooks up with an old Sorority sister, Melissa (Winona Rider), and Rachel reveals that she kissed her in High School when she had had a lot of sangria, much to Joey's pleasure. However, Phoebe does not believe that Rachel did something so wild. To prove it to Phoebe, she take her along to dinner with Melissa, who denies it. Rachel is so annoyed that her 1 wild moment had been taken away from her, that she gives Melissa another kiss. Melissa then admits that she does remember, and reveals her long-lasting love for Rachel (Melissa: "I can still hear the coconut bikini tops knocking together" Phoebe: "Somewhere, Joey's head is exploding") By the end of the episode Phoebe is so intrigued even she needs a taste of Rachel's wine soaked lips, just to see what all the fuss was about. Chandler and Ross compete over celebrity tuxes to wear to the Bing - Gellar wedding.Chandler has 007's tux, but it doesn't fit, and Ross has Val Kilmer's tux, but he didn't wear it in batman, he wore it in a love story about a blind man ("The only power you have is a slightly heightened sense of smell") Joey wants his parents to come to the wedding, and makes Monica arrange it so that they can come, including blaming the Post office and the Irish. Throughout the episode, Chandler makes failed attempts to get more people to come to the wedding as his guest, not Monica's, after seeing Monica's wedding plan with red pins for Monica's guests, and blue pins for Chandlers guests. ("This is so stupid, I have like 2 blue pins")
