Finding out she's the only one of the friends who never got to drive Monica's Posche, Rachel steals the car keys from Ross, who feels responsible so he jumps in before learning Rachel's license expired. They get stopped, twice, but flirting doesn't work with both officers. When Phoebe's studly boyfriend Jake bends over, Joey sees he wears lingerie. Phoebe tells Joey that they exchanged underwear and it takes a really confident man to dare doing so. Joey can't resist trying it himself. Chandler refuses to send a wedding invitation to his father, who made his entire youth hell by being such a shameless drag-queen, but Monica is determined to put family first and drags her groom to Las Vegas, where Chandler's dad has a drag show. When they are finally face to face, Chandler makes a decision. Written by KGF Vissers

Chandler's dad indeed is a woman!
13 April 2009 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Monica lends her Porsche to everybody but Rachel, who is a terrible driver. Rachel asks Ross to let her drive, but Ross tells her that she is irresponsible and rides the car too fast. When Ross goes to Central Perk's bathroom, Rachel takes Monica's car's key. Ross tries to avoid Rachel to drive the car, but he is not successful.

Chandler tells Monica that he didn't call his father to the wedding, since they are not close and don't see each other for years. Monica tells Chandler that he should invite his father, and that she doesn't mind if he goes dressed as a woman. Monica also buys plane tickets for them to go to Las Vegas to call Chandler's father in real life.

Joey stays shocked to see Jake wearing Phoebe's panties, and tells her that he looks gay. Phoebe tells Joey that Jake is much more secure of his sexuality then Joey, making Joey tempted to tries Rachel's panties.
