Goofs

After the food is burned/ruined, the Friends are all sitting in front of the TV watching skiing. When Monica turns off the TV, you can clearly see two individuals in the reflection. According to the placement of the actors sitting in the room and the clothing that they are wearing, these two individuals are not any of the actors. One is in a white shirt and tie, and the other is in an all dark outfit. See more »

PLOT: With their parents away Monica and Ross decide to have Thanksgiving dinner alone together at Monica's. However, one by one the other friends join them. Rachel says that she can't afford to buy a ticket for Vail to be with her family. Joey confesses that his family thinks that he has V.D. because he appeared in an ad campaign. Chandler recalls his story of how he doesn't eat thanks giving food because of bad family memories.

The friends rush onto the terrace for a better view and get locked out, so the dinner burns. Chandler is happy because everyone eats grilled cheese sandwiches.

Most sitcoms generally have holiday episodes, because how else could we relate to the show if they weren't going through the same things we are going through? The episode is of course really funny, and I personally think the Friends Thanksgiving episodes are better than any other TV shows Thanksgiving episodes.
