The one with Jack's and Judith's Anniversary!
17 April 2009 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

It's Judith's and Jack's wedding Anniversary Party and Phoebe wants to bring Parker, a guy that she is dating, to the party. Parker is the most optimist person in the world, always happy with everything that happens, but he annoys the Friends a lot with all this optimism. Monica wants to make the toast and the speech this year, because Ross is always the responsible to make everybody stays touched and crying. Trying to bring more tears then Ross to their parents, Monica writes in her speech everything she can remember that is a tragedy that happened in their family, like Chichi, their dead dog, or Nana, Monica's and Ross' grandmother who also pasted away.

At the party, Ross' parents tell to him and Rachel that they told to some of their friends that Ross and Rachel married, since their friends don't have the same open mind of them.

At first, Ross and Rachel didn't like the idea, but as the party goes, Ross and specially Rachel,start to invent a lot of details of their imaginary wedding. (some of them VERY hard to believe!)

Monica doesn't have success in making anyone cry, what makes her stay frustrated.
