Episode cast overview:
Monica Geller (as Courteney Cox Arquette)
Joey Tribbiani (as Matt Le Blanc)


The Geller parents are coming over for Thanksgiving but they don't know that Chandler moved in with Monica nor that they are dating because they don't like Chandler. Chandler's plan is to be very charming and make them like him then tell them that he is dating Monica. Rachel made a trifle for dessert but put two recipes together so it has beef and peas in it. Chandler is sucking up to the Gellars but Ross tells him that they don't like him because Ross was caught smoking pot in college and he blamed it on Chandler. Ross has to clear it all up but he first organizes that everybody pretends to like Rachel's dessert. Ross finally tells his parents that it wasn't Chandler. Everybody takes this opportunity to yell out stuff about each other they have wanted to say. The Gellars take a liking to Chandler and thank him for standing by Ross during his "drug problems" and for "taking on Monica as well". Written by Anonymous

The One Where Ross Got High
17 August 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Just another one of the excellent Thanksgiving episodes. What is not to like there?

The whole idea of Ross's parents not liking Chandler because Ross blamed pot smell in his room on him is just great. And how Ross was thinking what new lie to come up with. The moment where Ross and Monica tell each other's secrets within a minute to the parents is the highlight of the episode and one of my favorite scenes

It is also great how Rachel messes up the dessert by making it with beef. It is funny how everyone got rid of it. Except Ross who eats it very fast so that Rachel doesn't taste it (although it is weird she didn't get a piece) and Joey who actually enjoyed it

Phoebe's crush on Jack Gellar made one laugh as well
