The gang relives past Thanksgivings, in which at least one of them lost a body part. Phoebe reminisces about past lives as a war nurse, each of whom lost their left arm while tending to wounded soldiers; meanwhile, Chandler remembers his first two Thanksgivings at Ross and Monica\'s, the second of which culminated with the future love of his life chopping off part of his pinky toe. As if we couldn\'t love this episode enough, it comes complete with an appearance by Fat Monica, Chandler\'s Flock of Seagulls hairdo, and Monica dancing with a raw turkey on her head.
9. "The One Where Chandler Doesn\'t Like Dogs" (Season 7)
This entire half-hour is the equivalent of a moo point: Chandler swears he doesn\'t like dogs despite it never being mentioned before, Ross struggles at a game to remember all 50 states, and Rachel gets together with Tag, who, let\'s be honest, is tied with Mona and Gavin for least interesting love interest.
We\'re still trying to get the hypothetical taste of Chandler\'s Palmolive cranberries out of our mouths. And nothing screams "Season 10" like a subplot that finds Rachel and Phoebe entering Emma in an off-screen beauty pageant.
Though we\'re always up for exploring Ross and Monica\'s sibling rivalry, this episode is more about the (forgetful) hijinks that ensue once they face-off in a football game. Rachel and Phoebe are simply portrayed as women incapable of grasping sports, while Joey and Chandler argue over who gets to ask out a random Dutch girl we\'ll never see again.
6. "The One With Rachel\'s Other Sister" (Season 9)
If nothing else, the introduction of Rachel\'s second favorite sister Amy (Christina Applegate) showed how far the one-time runaway bride had come, now a successful career woman and single mom. Much like Brad Pitt\'s episode (which we\'ll get to in just a second), nothing about this installment is especially noteworthy, other than the fact that it makes decent use of its more-than-capable guest star.
Will "Hot Stuff!" Colbert (Brad Pitt) is reacquainted with his two mortal enemies: Rachel Greene, and complex carbohydrates. Despite being most memorable for having Jennifer Aniston\'s former husband stop by, we forgot how
lackluster this episode was. Phoebe volunteers to join the "I Hate Rachel Greene" fan club, then poof, Will\'s gone and the story has abruptly come to a close. The B-plot features Joey eating an entire turkey by himself, but let\'s face it: that\'s just a typical Thursday for Mr. Tribbiani.
4. "The One Where Underdog Gets Away" (Season 1)
The gang\'s first Turkey Day gave us the origin story behind Chandler\'s Thanksgiving phobia (his parents announced their divorce at the family\'s holiday feast when he was nine, forever tarnishing the day), and the reveal of Joey\'s VD posters, aptly soundtracked by The Police\'s "Don\'t Stand So Close To Me." What more could you need?
The love triangle between Joey, Chandler and Kathy (Paget Brewster) didn\'t amount to much, but it initially gave Matthew Perry and Matt LeBlanc some rather unexpected material to work with, as the BFFs found their near-sacred bond strained by Chandler\'s inadvertent betrayal.
Who can forget Rachel\'s traditional British trifle? It all starts with a layer of ladyfingers, then a layer of jam and custard (which she made from scratch), then raspberries, more ladyfingers, then beef sautéed with peas and onions, and, well, we\'ll stop there.
