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?


When Phoebe calls Mrs. Waltham on the phone and tells her she couldn't come to the wedding because she was pregnant with her brother's babies, Mrs. Waltham asks if she is on the radio. This is a reference to the practice in the UK where radio stations would place prank phone calls to people and then play their confused responses from the victims over the air. See more »


Hugh Laurie is credited as "The Gentleman on the Phone" instead of "The Gentleman on the Plane" - an obvious result of incorrect interpretation of someone's handwriting. This error is corrected on the DVD. See more »


[Rachel is on a plane to London, next to an English gentleman. She is drumming very annoyingly on a magazine in her lap]
The Gentleman on the Plane: Uh... uh... excuse me?
Rachel: Yeah?
The Gentleman on the Plane: If you're planning on doing that throughout the entire flight, please tell me now, so that I can take a sedative. Or perhaps slip you one.

The one with the London wedding
2 January 2015 | by (Nigeria) – See all my reviews

I loved this episode but I was aghast at what Ross did at the end. I was amazed and horrified about Chandler and Monica hooking up- at the time. I was like, 'Oh no, no no no!' Monica with her obsessiveness and bossiness and Chandler's issues with commitment, I felt it was a recipe for disaster. Even with the Season 3 flashback and the episode where Chandler tried to prove he was boyfriend material; I felt they would even be worse than Ross and Rachel, (whom I NEVER approved of) because their relationship would be based on sex only and would fight a lot. The next season and the ones after proved me wrong of course! Elliot Gould was very funny with the 'You thieving, would be speaking German if not for us cheap little man' line. I know my history so I kept rewinding that part so I would laugh again. Christina Pickles was funny too but while I don't really like Monica, I don't like how Judy Geller treats her either. Hugh Laurie was great as the man on the plane who tells Rachel what he thinks of her, 'a horrible person.' I first saw him years ago in BLACKADDER GOES FORTH so it was nice seeing him unsmiling and grumpy and telling Rachel what she was doing was selfish and agreeing she and Ross were 'On A Break'!
