Smashing good episode!!
19 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode involves Monica's and Chandler's search for a minister to perform their wedding. Their quest for the perfect minister leads them to an unexpected candidate, and hilarity ensues! Meanwhile, Ross asks Rachel to watch Ben for him when he has to go to a meeting. Completely awkward around Ben, Rachel is overjoyed to find that Ben likes her stories of practical jokes that she and her sisters played on each other.

In an interesting side note, there is an entire sub-story that was dropped from the original episode showed on TV. Luckily, they included it on the DVD of season seven. The story involves a headache-stricken Phoebe accepting a pain reliever pill from Monica. Phoebe is amazed that her headache has been cured by Western medicine, but soon becomes obsessed with the list of possible side effects. This section of the story is very amusing and it is a shame that it wasn't included in the original episode.

Overall, this episode is full of laugh out loud moments that bring us back to our roots, including surprising twists in both story lines!
