One Of The Best Episodes Ever
17 December 2014 | by See all my reviews

One of the best episodes of "Friends".

Plot In A Paragraph: It's Thanksgiving, so everyone is at Monica's for the usual festive meal. (Even Chandler, who is not boycotting it this year for unexplained reasons) They decide to have a friendly game of American Football in the park, despite the fact the Geller parents forbade Ross and Monica to play each-other ever again after years of vicious competiveness for the 'Geller Cup'. Rachel is awful and Phoebe only marginally better. Joey and Chandler are distracted by Margha, a Dutch girls who stays watching and they start arguing over who gets to date her. The Geller-rivalry takes over- Monica even makes it boys V's girls, and every dirty trick in the book is tried to gain points.

Some serious laugh out loud moments, despite the corny ending
