The friends are preparing for the festive season. Rachel is still mad at Ross. Phoebe realizes her mother lied to her and gave her a picture of a model pretending it was Phoebes father. She goes to see her grandmother who tells her Phoebe her father is really a pharmacist and not a worshipped tree surgeon in Burma. Phoebe's grandmother gives her a photo of her real dad. Ross suggests that Rachel should make a list about him to feel better. She makes the list and does feel better but Ross drives everyone nuts trying to prove every point on the list wrong. Chandler and Joey go with Phoebe to see her dad. Rachel and Monica have a Christmas party at their place. Phoebe doesn't want to be disappointed in her dad and doesn't go to meet her dad.

Okay. You're whiny. You are... You're obsessive. You are insecure. You're gutless. You don't just seize the day. You liked me for, what, a year and you didn't do anything about it. And, uh... Oh, you wear too much of that gel in your hair.
Dr. Ross Geller
See? There... You, uh... All right. You did what I said.
Yeah, and you know what? You're right. I do feel better. Thank you, Ross.
