‘The One with the Late Thanksgiving’

Season 10, Episode 8 - Aired November 20, 2003

When Monica chooses not to host an elaborate Thanksgiving dinner this year, her friends beg her to change her mind. After Monica relents and prepares a huge feast, her friends show up late.

Quote from Joey

Monica: We need to talk to you about something.
Chandler: Yeah. We don't feel like we can host Thanksgiving this year.
Joey: What?
Ross: Are you kidding?
Chandler: Well, it's just with work and the stress of adoption we just don't feel like we have the energy. Plus, we don't think it's fair that every year the burden falls on us.
Ross: That doesn't sound like you. That's Monica talking.
Chandler: No, no. We made this decision together.
Ross: She's putting words in your mouth.
Joey: Don't you put words in people's mouths. You put turkey in people's mouths.


Quote from Chandler

Chandler: I'm telling you, it's gonna happen. Next year, it's gonna be you, me and little Hemingway Bing. What? He's my favorite author.
Monica: Name one of his books.
Chandler: [scoffs] ... The Firm?

Quote from Ross

Ross: Hey, guess what Joey has.
Joey: Three tickets to today's Rangers game!
Ross: Dude, I wanted him to guess.
Chandler: Oh, my God.
Ross: Yeah, they're great seats too. Guess where they are.
Joey: Center ice.
Ross: Did I do something to you?

Quote from Joey

Chandler: We'll never make it back.
Joey: So we'll leave before it's over.
Chandler: But it could take us a long time to get back home. Plus, Joey could get lost and they could have to page us to go pick him up.
Joey: Dude, two times that happened!

Quote from Rachel

Ross: Let me see this. "Grand Supreme Little Darling, New York Division"?
Rachel: That's me.

Quote from Phoebe

Ross: You entered Emma in a beauty pageant?
Phoebe: And it looks like she put makeup on her.

Quote from Ross

Ross: I can't believe this. She's our daughter. That you would treat her like some kind of show dog is inexcusable.
Rachel: She won a thousand dollars.
Ross: So this is an annual thing?

Quote from Monica

Monica: Oh, they are in for a world of pain.
Chandler: Ross's shirt is torn.
Monica: They're late and they're sloppy.

Quote from Ross

Rachel: What happened to your shirt?
Ross: I got mugged and they stole my pocket.

Quote from Joey

Ross: "We know you're out there."
[Rachel gasps]
Joey: Who do you think it's from?
