The Ticket Agent
Trivia: Both Ross and Chandler made strange comments about each other's first girlfriends in their best man speeches. In this episode Chandler said Ross over inflated his first girlfriend and in "The One With Monica and Chandler's Wedding" Ross said that Chandler's first girlfriend couldn't control her bladder.
Continuity: When Ross and Emily's parents meet for the first time, Judy Geller makes the joke that this may be the only wedding they get to throw, referring to Monica never getting married. However, Ross was married once before to Carol and, presumably, already had a wedding.
Continuity Error: Although the wedding dress Emily is wearing is similar to the one picked up by Monica in "The One with All the Wedding Dresses," it is clearly a different design. What's more, Emily is wearing a matching jacket that was not with the dress Monica picked up, and a tiara instead of the veil Monica wore.
Goof: When the wedding begins, the first bridesmaid walks down the aisle with a man, dressed in the same attire as the best men. He is not seen again, and the only men in the wedding party are Joey and Chandler.
Goof: When Ross and Emily's parents are arguing at the church, Jack Geller's hands, as well as his glasses and the paper, switch positions whenever the camera angle changes. When Ross breaks up the argument, saying "This is our wedding day," a camera angle briefly appears with Ross speaking, but his lips are completely out of sync with the words being spoken.
Goof: When the bridesmaid finds Joey and he's supposed to be watching for Rachel, the bridesmaid closes the door. But when they start kissing, the door is completely open.
Goof: When Monica and Ross discuss how Emily decided to call off the wedding, Monica is wearing a black watch on her left wrist that disappears and reappears throughout the scene.
Factual Error: When the scene cuts from Chandler and Joey's hotel room to the church right before the wedding, it goes via a shot of the Houses of Parliament in which St Stephen's Clock Tower clearly shows that it is after 8pm, a fact borne out by how dark it is outside and the fact that Rachel arrives before the wedding despite having only left New York the same day. Marriages in England and Wales are only legal between the hours of 8am and 6pm unless one of the couple is house-bound, so Ross and Emily's marriage should not be legally binding.
Judy: (About the chapel) Oh, my God! It's like a fairyland.
Mrs. Waltham: I know. Horrible isn't it?
Monica: Well, I love it. I only hope my wedding looks this good.
Judy: I just hope...
Monica: You can let some of them go by!
Joey: Have you seen Monica?
Chandler: (Upset) I'm not seeing Monica.
Judy: There's nothing to discuss, we're not paying for your wine cellar!
Mr. Waltham: You have to meet me in the middle here.
Jack: Hey, if you keep pushing me on this my foot's gonna meet the middle of your ass.
Rachel: Hi, I'm back! I need to...
Ticket Agent: (Cheerfully) Hello!
Rachel: Uh... hello! I need to get on that 11 o'clock flight.
Ticket Agent: I'm afraid that plane has already pulled away from the gate.
Rachel: Your going to have to call that plane and tell them to swing back and pick me up!
Ticket Agent: I can't do that.
Rachel: Come on! We'll just tell them there's like a problem with the engine.
Ticket Agent: I'm afraid I'm going to have to ask you to step aside, miss.
Rachel: Look if I don't get to London he is going to marry that other girl!
Ticket Agent: I can't imagine why!
Rachel: Alright, you know what... I am not leaving here until you call that plane back! (Hits the counter twice)
(The Ticket Agent knocks the closed sign on the counter twice)
Chandler: I'd like to toast Ross and Emily. Of course my big toast will be tomorrow at the wedding. So this is kind of my little toast, or Melba toast, if you will.
Monica: My mother's right, I'm never gonna get married.
Chandler: That is just... I mean, who wouldn't want you?
Monica: Oh please, I'm a single mom with a 30 year-old son!
Chandler: Look, the guy was crazy, okay? There is no way that you look like Ross' mother.
Monica: Then why would he say it?
Chandler: Because he's crazy! Okay? He came up to me earlier and thanked me for my very moving performace in Titanic!
Chandler: What we did last night was stupid right?
Monica: Oh, yeah. Totally stupid.
Chandler: Yeah, crazy... But we're good for tonight, right?
Monica: Oh, yeah.
Chandler: (To Monica after sex) So, how are you?
Monica: Good. You?
Chandler: Oh, I'm fine. You?... Oh, we already did you.
Priest: (To Ross) Repeat after me, "I, Ross."
Ross: I, Ross.
Priest: "Take thee, Emily."
Ross: Take thee, Rachel.
Ross: (To all the parents) From now on everyone gets along, and if I hear one more word, no grandchildren!
Rachel: And so then I realized. All this stuff I had been doing, proposing to Joshua, lying to Ross about why I couldn't come to the wedding, was all just a way of...
Gentleman on the plane: Oh, oh, oh! I'm sorry, can I interrupt? Yeah, I just want to say that you are a horrible, horrible person.
Rachel: Uh, pardon me?
Gentleman on the plane: You say you love this man, yet you're about to ruin the happiest day of his life. I'm afraid I have to agree with you friend, Pheebs. This is a terrible, terrible plan.
Rachel: But he has to know how I feel!
Gentleman on the plane: But why? He loves this, this Emily person. No good can come of this.
Rachel: Well I think your wrong.
Gentleman on the plane: (Sarcastically) Oh no!
Rachel: He doesn't really love her! It's just a rebound thing from me. You'll see.
Gentleman on the plane: Fortunately, I won't. And by the way, it seems to be perfectly clear that you were on a break.

The writers only intended to have Monica and Chandler as a couple for a few episodes. The audience reaction was so strong, that they decided to keep them together a little longer, which eventually turned into the rest of the series.
This 2 part episode, as well as "The One After Ross Says Rachel" features a special title sequence with scenes from only these episodes.
In this episode, all the British actors are credited as special guest stars. In all other episodes, only rather famous celebrities are credited that way.
The first episode not to have a proper tag scene at the end of the show. A few shots of London, pictures of the guest stars, and outtakes (some of which are from episode 5.01) run alongside the credits. This applies to the DVD release only.
This episode runs 24:36 on DVD (a typical sitcom runs about 22:00).
Joey: Where every body knows my name.
This is a line from the Cheers theme song.
