Did You Know?


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 Friends: 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 »

Decent but not great
19 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

To be honest, I loved a couple episodes in 10th season. Like Ross's tan and of course the season finale. But this episode made me kind of dislike the way they portrayed each Friend. I know it's Phoebe's wedding, so she has a right to be angry at Monica for being so bossy (which is also way too drawn out, I wish they had shown Monica as slightly bossy but overall loving like she usually is), but I didn't like how Phoebe's character changed. I miss the old, hippie, adorable Phoebe of the first few seasons, and I hated that, at the beginning, she told Ross and Chandler that they're not a part of the wedding. She should've made them her "bridesmaids" it would've been adorable. I mean they've known each other for more than 10 years (since they were shown as all already being close friends in the Pilot episode) and Chandler told Phoebe FIRST when he planned on proposing to Monica. It was a little rude of her. Of course, Ross, Joey, and Chandler have their humorous moments which I love and Rachel is Rachel, but I did not like the way Monica is portrayed and the way Phoebe seemed so offhand about not having her two best friends in the wedding.
