Although this episode is not the best. It still did it's job. It's what you would expect when it's about the worst character : Ross (in my opinion.) but, even he did well. The best characters were probably Monica & Ross's parents in this one. But Ross held the episode strong with his main plot. MVP : Judy/Jack Geller. Quotes : "Judy Geller: Well, at least she had the chance to leave a man at the altar. Monica Geller: What's that supposed to mean? Judy Geller: Nothing. It's an expression. Monica Geller: No, it's not. Jack Geller: Don't listen to your mother. You're independent and you always have been. Even when you were a kid, and you were chubby and you had no friends, you were just fine! And your'd read alone in your room, and your puzzles..."
