Goofs

Chandler left the girls' apartment and the door closed. He then came in to announce that Underdog got away without needing a key, so obviously, the door wasn't locked. When everyone ran out to see Underdog, they came back and the door was locked, when it wasn't locked just minutes before. See more »

Quotes

Joey: Hey, Mon. I have a question... I don't see any tater tots.
Monica: That's not a question.

Not A Great Episode
19 November 2014 | by slightlymad22See all my reviews

Plot In A Paragraph: When everyone's plans fall through Monica (Courtney Cox) hosts a Thanksgiving dinner, but things go awry when everyone gets locked out of the girls apartment.

We meet the owner of Central Perk, a guy named Terry (no surname). We also get a new actress playing Carol, Ross's ex-wife (Jane Sibbett)

Not a great episode, but it had it's moments, Joey's "disease" was funny, and a great excuse to have a Police song to be used, a bit of Sting and Co is never a bad thing.

I thin a lot of effort must have went in to making this look real, as Courtney Cox looked very cold in the scene in the hallway after they have been on the roof
