Monica is driving Phoebe insane as she plans Phoebe's wedding. At the rehearsal dinner, Phoebe gets really upset with Monica and fires her. The next day, Phoebe is going through hell doing Monica's job. Chandler and Ross find out that they are not included in the wedding and when one of Mike's groomsmen can't make it, Mike lets Phoebe decide who should take the role. Phoebe passes the decision to bridesmaid Rachel however Mike makes his dog, Chappy, the missing groomsman. Joey is playing Phoebe's dad during the ceremony, and he takes it too seriously. There is a giant blizzard which threatens the event, but Phoebe and Mike decide to get married still when the blizzard stops. Phoebe gives Monica her job back. Chappy can't walk on the snow, so Ross carries him. The minister can't make it, so Joey volunteers to marry Phoebe and Mike & Chandler then plays Phoebe's father. Written by
I loved this episode! It was very touching and it's wonderful to see Phoebe allow herself to grow and change. Yes, she's quirky and "hippyish", but she was strong enough to realize that she did not have to put herself in a box. She wanted something in her life to be traditional and she did it! Mike is perfect for her, especially evident on a later episode when Phoebe wants to change her name. Monica is Monica but still likable--her relationship to the rest of the friends has always been a little more maternal and the others know that although she can be unbearable with her control issues, she is always there to help, support and cook for them!
The lingering question: Where is Phoebe's family? When she asks Joey to walk her down the aisle she explains her step-dad was in solitary because "stabbing ice man in the exercise yard just couldn't wait until Monday." But where are her birth mother, Frank, Alice and the triplets? They may have been prevented from attending the wedding by the blizzard but why didn't they attend the rehearsal dinner or why weren't the reasons for their absence explained? A the very least they should have been mentioned since even Phoebe's friend Marjorie, who will "shower when Tibet is free", was mentioned.
