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

Did You Know?


In one scene, Rachel said if her mother wanted to be like her she should consider copying her hairstyle. Besides the line being a jab at the trend of copying the "Rachel haircut" during the 1990s, nearly 30 years earlier Marlo Thomas (Sandra Green) became famous for a hairstyle that girls were trying to emulate when she starred on That Girl (1966) .

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.
