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

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
