Storyline

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

The One with Chandler's Dad
1 September 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

One of the very good episodes I really like the story of Rachel and Ross on the porche. It was already pretty funny how she got behind the wheel but it gets even better when she gets stopped but gets out of ticket by flirting with the officer. And it gets even better when Ross is stopped for being too slow and tries to get out of his ticket using Rachel's method. Absolutely hilarious! It was also great how Monica convinced Chandler to go see his cross dressing father. Chandler was really irritating me in this episode. Was sad to see him being so close minded. Monicawas the better one in this episode thats for sure. But the moment where he invited his father to come to the wedding was very moving. I am very impressed with the show for promoting the open mindness and tolerance!
