When Monica picks up the phone in the coffee shop she says "Geller" but her name was hyphenated when she married Chandler and changed to Geller-Bing. See more »


Monica says "Alright, people, it's zero hour," which is midnight. Seconds later, she schedules Chandler for sex at 2300 hours, which is 11:00pm, an hour earlier. And it wasn't 2300 the next day because at the end of the episode, Chandler and Joey had just returned from the wedding ceremony, and Chandler says, "It's 2300 hours, and I'm about to have the most organized sex anyone's ever had."

Love it with a lingering question
3 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

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.
