Storyline

After Monica's Thanksgiving turkey dinner, the Friends elaborate on Chandler's traditional sob-story about his gay father causing a parental break-up, since then he always hated the holiday. His status as 'king of misery' is challenged, first by Ross' seasonal marriage with Emily divorced in record-time. Phoebe can only cheat with an 'earlier life', at the front-line in the Secession War. Rachel brings up the time that Joey and Monica ended up wearing the turkey on their heads, but that's easily topped by the early one from her fat youth, when Ross introduced her to Chandler at the Geller home. Chandler called her fat. Yet even worse, was the failed revenge the following year, when Chandler accidentally lost a toe, which got lost again. Written by KGF Vissers

Goofs

During Chandler's flashback to Thanksgiving with his parents, they are clearly discussing the divorce over the main course, with everyone still eating turkey. This does not correspond at all to Chandler's statement back in Season 1 that his parents first told him they were divorcing just as he had eaten "a mouthful of pumpkin pie". See more »

Quotes

[Thanksgiving]
Rachel: You know what we should do? We should play that game where everybody says what they're thankful for.
Joey: Oh. I should be thankful for the wonderful fall we've been having.
Everybody: YEAH.
Joey: I remember one day I was at the bus stop and this cool fall breeze came blowing out of nowhere and totally lifted this chick's skirt. Oh. And I'm also thankful for thongs.
