Even before they leave the apartment, Joey drives Chandler crazy by forgetting everything useful, even his passport, but crying every five seconds "London, baby!", and photographing absolutely everything all the time, as if 6 hours on an airplane with Monica weren't bad enough. Emily was already a nervous wreck, but when she and Ross show Monica her dream site for the wedding that hall is already torn down, ahead of schedule! Ross hears Monica made her consider postponing and freaks out about their parents and transatlantic guests; she answers then they better call it off altogether. Back home, Phoebe makes Rachel realize how much she still loves Ross, so she helps her make up her mind, but warns her it's too late to get Ross back- yet Rachel rushes to London. When Joey insists to buy and wear an ostentatious Union Jack souvenir hat, Chandler refuses to spend the rest of the day thus; instead of being lost and miserable, Joey has a great afternoon, even photographed with Fergie, but ...

Did You Know?


Lisa Kudrow was pregnant in real life during the filming of this episode, and was therefore not able to travel to London; therefore the writers had to find a way to keep her involved in the story while still in Monica's apartment. See more »

Monica: Guys, hurry up. The flight leaves in four hours. It could take time to get a taxi. There could be traffic. The plane could leave early. When we get to London, there could be a line at customs. Come on.
Chandler: Six-hour trip to London. That's a lot of Monica

The Friends go to London
2 January 2015 | by (Nigeria) – See all my reviews

Chandler was out of character in this episode; mean and grumpy. Half of the time Joey is irritating when he displays his dimwit behaviour but Chandler and the others mostly ignore it out of affection for him. I love the music used in the London scenes; The Clash's 'LONDON CALLING' and Roger Miller's 'ENGLAND SWINGS'. Emily made me laugh when she didn't understand Ross's signal for time-out. Monica annoyed me with the way she tentatively tried to make Emily switch from Chicken Kiev to Salmon because it would be 'more elegant.' Order Salmon at YOUR OWN wedding, Monica! And what sort of idea is postponing the wedding for another time, instead of finding another place for the ceremony? Monica can be such a fool and I was furious her idea made Ross and Emily argue. But Ross arranging the half demolished hall as best as he could and then showing it to Emily was very sweet. I also liked the surprise cameo by the Virgin Group founder, Richard Branson. My brothers admire him so they were astonished when I called them over to see him play the role of a vendor who sells a hat to Joey. Joey was funny with the map thing and then bumping into Fergie, Duchess of York who was friendly at first but then beat a hasty retreat when Joey, being Joey starts to hit on her. Rachel is PLAIN selfish, it's harsh but true. First she's jealous about Ross and Emily then pretended she's not, refused to go to London with the others and finally realises she still loves Ross, packing her bag to go and stop the wedding, even though she knew very well Ross loved Emily. I was not pleased with that.
