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
Did You Know?
In defense of her traditional English trifle containing meat, Rachel mentions mincemeat pie (also "mince meat", "Christmas pie") as another traditional English dessert containing meat. However and despite the name, modern varieties and recipes of mincemeat pie do not contain meat. Although some culinary traditionalists have promoted the reintroduction of meat as an ingredient, it has not been included for centuries. Instead they usually contain apples, raisins, brown sugar, spices and other ingredients usually associated with sweet desserts. See more
When Rachel makes the trifle including a layer of beef sautéed with peas and onions, Ross says she made half a shepherds pie. Shepherds' pie isn't made with beef, it's made with lamb. Cottage pie has beef. See more
