Storyline

Joey is not about to forgive Chandler, nor Rachel Ross, even now Thanksgiving is coming up. Monica is getting virtually no help, and gets ice in her eye but dares not go to her ophthalmologist and ex Richard Burke, but is excited to get his on call, who turns out to be his cute-to-die-for son Timothy, who has just broken up with his girl friend. Joey tells Ross he has sentenced Chandler to five years silent treatment, but is talked into hearing him out at Central Perk- just when Joey walks up to them Kathy kisses Chandler, and he decides to go looking for another apartment. Chandler is willing to do anything, and Joey decides: six hours locked up, like him when he allowed the robbers to lock him up in the closet and steal all their hardware, in a large, dark wooden box as proof of friendship, repentance and physical pain. Monica, now wearing an eye-patch, invites Timothy for Thanksgiving, and despite of the others teasing they get on great, till a kiss makes her feel almost incestuous... Written by KGF Vissers

Goofs

When Chandler is in the box and Ross 'accidentally' puts his hand over the air hole, you see that he places it near the hole first, moves it over the hole, and then sort of glances towards the box to check it is in the right place. See more »

The One with Chandler in a Box
25 July 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

It seems that Thanksgiving episodes of Friends are the best ones. There is pretty much everything perfect in this one. The best part is of course the Joey and Chandler story. It is an absolutely perfect ending to their fight. Joey sentences Chandler to sit in the box all night to do some thinking, just like he did when he got locked in the entertainment centre. This is a crazy idea which makes it so much fun, and the ending, where Kathy comes to say good bye to him and he doesn't reply because Joey didn't want him to talk and his friendship means so much to Chandler, is absolutely sweet

It is also fun to see Monica trying to hook up with Richard's son. I am glad it was just a one episode thing though, I wouldn't like them together.

And special mention is to Rachel showing all the things she kept that meant a lot to her, including a museum bone. I was one of the funniest parts of the episode for me
