Storyline

Ross isn't confident enough to accept attending his ex Carol's lesbian wedding to Susan. Because the wedding caterer has a bad accident, Monica gets the job, a first for her, but can't get it done without generalized slave labor... Joey has his first TV appearance as Dr. Drake Ramore in Days of Our Lives, and shows the friends some acting tricks used there... Phoebe's 82 year-old client Rose died on her massage table, and her spirit went into her- now she has two crazy personalities and an octogenarian's agenda... Rachel was all nerves for her ma's first visit since she blew her wealthy wedding to Barry, but actually her happiness in poverty inspires Mrs. Greene Sr., who never worked but cracks at everybody, to leave Rach's pa and cheerfully join the crazy modern girls life... Everybody attends the wedding, and when Carol's parents won't give her away... Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

Soupy Sales, a comic with a gift for slapstick who attained cult-like popularity in the 1960s with a pie-throwing routine that became his signature. As the star of "The Soupy Sales Show," he performed live on television for 13 years in Detroit, Los Angeles and New York before the program went into syndication in the United States and abroad. The high point of every show came when a sidekick launched a pie into Sales' face. Sales once estimated that he was hit by more than 25,000 pies in his lifetime. The gag became more than hilarious; it evolved into a hip badge of honor. Frank Sinatra was first in a long line of celebrities who clamored for the privilege to be cream-faced, including Tony Curtis, Mickey Rooney, Sammy Davis Jr., Dick Martin and Burt Lancaster.

Goofs

At Carol and Susan's wedding, as Ross walks Carol in, you can hear the violinist accidentally brush the violin strings with the bow. The music itself was either played back from a tape or added in post production. See more »

The One With The Gay Wedding
11 December 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Not sure what is going on with all these substandard offerings of late. They are all watchable episodes and are very easy going TV that is easy to watch, they just are not very funny.

Plot In A Paragraph: it's the wedding of Ross's ex wife Carol and her lesbian lover Susan, Monica is hired to do the catering when the original caterer has an accident, meanwhile Phoebe finds herself possessed by the spirit of a client who died on her massage table.

I really liked the scene where Ross convinced Carol to go through with the wedding when she started to have doubts after her homophobic parents reveal they will not go to a gay wedding.

It's interesting to see now, all these years later how prejudice some people were, and still are in some places.
