The Housekeeper
The Ticket Agent


Ross' and Emily's parents meet and prove quite antagonistic; Stephen and Andrea Waltham enjoy that the Gellers pay for the wedding, against tradition, but Jack feels the list of expenses at their house is highway robbery, so Ross tries to mediate. Joey is terribly homesick, despite playing best man jointly with Chandler. Rachel misses her flight having forgotten her passport, and on the next annoys the gentleman sitting besides her to death who is quite happy to disagree with her all the way. The rehearsal dinner is hell for Chandler and Monica, who doubts whether she'll ever find a partner- and wakes up in bed with Chandler the next morning. Phoebe phones Joey he must warn Ross Rachel is coming, but she gets straight to him in Montgomery Hall, and at the last moment just congratulates him, so the wedding goes on, with Joey reporting over the phone to Phoebe. However, when the couple pledges eternal fidelity, Ross inadvertently says 'Rachel' instead of Emily... Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


Although the bulk of the 2 part episode was actually shot in the Fountain Studios, in Wembley, London, it wasn't as well received in the UK as in the USA. Many British viewers regarded the episode as an ill-informed and patronising caricature of the UK and its people, causing the episode to be unofficially labelled "The One Where They Insult the English". Ironically, the UK terrestrial TV channel "Channel Four" which had first-run terrestrial broadcast rights, had proposed a UK based episode to Warner Bros. TV. See more »


Joey says in his best man speech at the rehearsal that he met Ross "in this coffeehouse back home" . We know from a previous episode that he met him in the same place, yet it was not a coffeehouse but a pool club/bar then. See more »


Rachel: [talking to another man] And so then I realized all this stuff that I had been doing: proposing to Joshua, lying to Ross about why I couldn't come to the wedding was all just way
[is cut off by the Gentleman]
The Gentleman on the Plane: Oh, oh, oh. I'm sorry, can I interrupt? I just want to say that you are a horrible, horrible person.
Rachel: Pardon me?
The Gentleman on the Plane: Well, you say you love this man, and yet you're about to ruin the happiest day of his life. I'm afraid I have to agree with your friend 'Phebes'. This a terrible, terrible plan.

The One with Ross's Wedding: Part 2
11 August 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The second part of the finale was genius. It couldn't even be ruined by the stupid "they would be speaking German if not for us" joke that only some Americans who don't know enough history would agree with. Everything else was perfect

The whole idea of Chandler and Monica hooking up was so unexpected and absolutely great! When she got out from under the sheets it was probably one of the most surprising moments of the show. How they were acting after it was all very funny too. And one really wants to know how it will go on, looks like it is not over since Chandler plans to come over to her room on the wedding night again

I loved Rachel's trip to England. I liked the guy next toher who told her that she was incredibly selfish and that they WERE on a break. A voice of reason right next to her. I found it very nice and touching that she decided to not be selfish and not confess anything to Ross

I also liked how they included Phoebe into the wedding. How shewas trying to stop Rachel, talked on the phone with Emily's mom (very interesting character) and even got to hear the wedding on the phone, including the last lines that made the waiting for the next season so much harder for everyone
