Did You Know?


Chandler commented about having the "Crying Indian" coming to save them if he litters. That is a tip-of-the-hat to the "Keep America Beautiful" commercial that was marketed to reduce littering. See more »


The rest stop is a set on a soundstage, which means you cant have cars driving any sort of distance or high speed. It is obvious at the end of the episode that when the cab drives away with everyone in it except Ross, that the cab is stationary and the camera is panning along the side of it to give the appearance of the cab pulling away.

Dr. Ross Geller: [after filling up the cab's gas tank] You're welcome.
Rachel Green: Oh, I'm sorry, were you speaking to me or sleeping with someone else?

The One Without the Ski Trip
16 May 2008 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Ross and Rachel are not talking to each other, and all the activities and travels they do, are separated. The Friends need to adapt to this new routine, since Ross and Rachel cannot stay at the same place without be shouting or having terrible fights.

Chandler is stressed with Ross' and Rachel's break up, because it remembers him very much when his parents divorced, so he returns the bad habit of smoking. He also admits that he uses humor as a defense mechanism since them.

Rachel invites everyone except Ross to go Skii with her in her sister's house. Phoebe is the one who will bring them to the place, driving her grandmother's cab, but when a problem occurs, they have to call Ross to go help them.
