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

The One With The Thanksgiving Dinner...
31 May 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I love this episode. It is one of my all-time favorite episodes. Not just from Season 4, but from the entire series. It's one of the best Thanksgiving episodes, and it really is just fantastic.

In this episode, it's Thanksgiving, and as always, Monica is hosting Thanksgiving dinner. Since Joey is still made at Chandler for kissing Kathy, he says that the only way he'll forgive him is if he spends the day in a large box. Not speaking, not communicating with anyone. So Chandler gets in the box. But when Kathy comes to break up with him, because she feels guilty about breaking their friendship, Joey forgives Chandler and tells him to chase after her. Meanwhile, Monica gets ice in her eye and has to go see an eye doctor, but doesn't want to at first because her eye doctor is her ex-boyfriend, Richard. But they tell her she can see the on-call doctor, who turns out to be Richard's son.

Overall, I give this episode a 10 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Freaking Ridonkulous.
