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

Did You Know?


The dessert that Rachel makes list banana and beef as ingredients, which Joey finds delicious. Matt LeBlanc played Captain Don West in Lost in Space the year before this episode aired in which he opens a food packet which is Banana Beef flavoured, asking who makes up these combinations.

When Ross unstuck the pages, Ross turns over the page and discovers that Rachel made part of a shepherd's pie. Rachel would have noticed that she made a mistake because the beef was in the middle of the trifle, she would have had to have flicked back to the previous page to continue with the recipe.

Ross smoked pot
8 June 2009 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

It's Thanks Giving and all the Friends want Monica to make the big food celebration of the day. Monica promised Rachel that she could make the dessert for the day, and everybody hates the new(And everybody have a reason, since Rachel doesn't have success in making the dessert, mixing the ingredients and adding steak into the dessert!).

Monica's parents are coming to the celebration in her house and Monica doesn't want Chandler telling her parents that they are living together. Her parents don't know they are dating,specially because they don't like Chandler. When Chandler discovers that Monica's parents don't like him, he decides to talk to Ross, who admits that the reason they hate Chandler is because Ross blamed Chandler of smoking pot in their house, when in fact, Ross was the one who smoked.

Janine calls Ross and Joey to have Thanks Giving dinner with her and her dancer friends, but they cannot accept the invitation even wanting a lot: they promised Monica to be at her Thanks Giving dinner. While having dinner, Joey and Ross cannot wait to end the dinner to meet the girls.
