Storyline

Will, an old friend of Ross' is in town and Monica invited him for Thanksgiving dinner. Will used to be really fat in high school and he really hates Rachel because she was horrible to him. Will shows his hatred and tells Rachel they had the "I-hate-Rachel-Greene-Club" in high school. The members of the club: Will and Ross! Their club spread a rumor that Rachel had both male and female reproductive parts. Everybody knew about the rumor and Rachel figures that's why certain guys wouldn't go out with her. It turns out that Rachel told everyone about how Ross made out with the old librarian and Ross is so upset he wants to be in the club again. Phoebe also joins the club because she's never been in a club. Monica tells them they're being childish and they should focus on the important things going on in their lives like having a baby together. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

While promoting the episode, NBC made no mention of Brad Pitt and blurred his face in television spots, and teased a high-profile guest star. Trade publications had previously reported that Pitt would appear in the season, and most media outlets correctly predicted he was the mystery guest star. See more »

Goofs

When Will talks about his weight loss, he says he avoids complex carbohydrates because they are his worst enemy. Complex carbohydrates do not contribute to weight gain if eaten in moderation - only simple carbohydrates cause weight gain because they are digested more quickly and lead to feeling hungry sooner. What's more,, yams are not complex carbohydrates. See more »

I've lost count of how many times I've watched this episode. My only beef ... if she knew Joey was the only one eating the turkey, why not make a smaller one?!
