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
Interestingly, Phoebe's wedding is not attended by any of her relatives, such as her twin sister Ursula, her father Frank (Bob Balaban), biological mother Phoebe Sr. (Teri Garr), brother Frank Jr. (Giovanni Ribisi), sister-in-law Alice (Debra Jo Rupp), or the nieces and nephew she gave birth to. (However, there was a huge blizzard and it's possible those people weren't able to make it.) See more »
In this episode Monica says that she has never been fired before, but in The One with Five Steaks and an Eggplant she gets fired from her job for accepting a kickback, the five steaks, from the meat vendor. See more »
I cannot bring myself to watch this episode let alone Season 10 of this long drawn-out, well past it's sell by date series.
"The One with Phoebe's Wedding" epitomized everything that was wrong with the decision to continue this franchise. I thought I really cared about these characters after watching the entire series from the beginning but obviously not enough as I have now officially denied the existence of season 10 and maybe 9, so I can remember the series as it was, which was a highly enjoyable, entertaining and hilarious show.
In this episode, the date has arrived for Phoebe and Mike's wedding, so tensions are high between both Phoebe and Monica (her maid of honor). So high in fact that during the rehearsal dinner, Monica gets fired for being too controlling. Rachel has her own problems after being forced to decide between both Ross and Joey as to who gives her away at her wedding. Eventually, Monica is rehired but a heavy blizzard jeopardises the chances of the wedding, but Rachel has the idea of the simple wedding she always wanted in the snow and Mike and Phoebe get married.
It's makes me wonder about the writers of the show, that did they think we completely loved these characters enough to ignore how annoying they had become, especially Monica who's extra weight was definitely showing (I know she was pregnant) meaning the quirky and lovable Monica was gone yet she acted the same way, and to be rewarded for her actions in this episode of bossing Phoebe around and acting all smug the entire time to getting rehired, definitely something wrong there.
Overall, an embarrassing episode and a weak season 10 which really didn't do the overall series justice.
