Storyline

Everybody is sad, most of all Monica as Chandler must spend Christmas and New Years in Tulsa, where his staff is all depressed they can't be with their families. He arranged for head office to send a bonus, but even that's another bummer: donations in their name to the New York ballet. After reminiscing about Christmases spent with the Friends, he sends everyone home anyway. Only the second in the hierarchy, Wendy, stays. Monica gets jealous when she calls Chandler, and also starts reminiscing about romance with Chandler, who ends up making a snap decision of surprising magnitude... Written by KGF Vissers
