Storyline

Everyone is shocked to hear Ross say Rachel instead of Emily but they continue with the ceremony. Emily is really mad at Ross and says she hates him at the party. Monica and Chandler agree to only sleep together while they're in London. Emily flees the wedding through the bathroom window. Everyone except Rachel thinks it didn't mean anything that Ross said her name. Emily is utterly humiliated and never wants to see Ross again. The friends return to New York. Rachel is still in London an stand-by for a flight and Ross waits at the airport for Emily. Rachel and Ross are just about to go to Athens together because Ross already had the tickets for the honeymoon when Emily shows up. Ross chases after her while Rachel waits for him on the plane.

The One Where Chandler And Monica Try To Hookup Again...
19 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

I love this episode. I think Ross was so completely stupid for saying Rachel's name at his own wedding. My God, how dumb is he? Really. The answer is really.

In this episode, we pick up right where Season 4 left off. After Ross and Emily's wedding. He tries to get Emily to forgive him, instead she climbs out the window of the bathroom, at her own wedding reception. Just like Rachel did at her wedding, but before. Ross is devastated and tries to convince Rachel that he didn't mean to say her name. But we all know he did. Monica and Chandler are trying to hookup again, before they have to leave London. They think it will only work if they do it there, then stop when they get home, and pretend it never happened. But they never seem to get the chance. Something always interrupts them. At the end of the episode, Ross goes to the airport, hoping Emily will show up for their flight for their honeymoon. Instead, Rachel shows up to tell him that she loves him. And they agree to go on the honeymoon together. Rachel goes to get on the plane, and then Emily shows up. Ross runs after her, and abandons Rachel on a plane to Greece. What a douche.

Overall, I give this episode a 9 out of 10.
