【剧情介绍】

因父母外出,罗斯和莫妮卡开始准备自己的感恩节大餐;菲比要和他俩一起庆祝,因为她向来同祖母一起过感恩节,而祖母的新男友用阴历不用阳历,他们家将在12月才过感恩节。

Ross:Look, if she's talking to it, I just think that I should get some belly time too. Not that I believe any of this.

Phoebe:Oh, I believe it. I think the baby can totally hear everything. I can show you. Look, this will seem a little weird, but you put your head inside this turkey, and then we'll all talk, and you'll hear everything we say.

Chandler: I'd just like to say that I'm totally behind this experiment. In fact, I'd very much like to butter your head.

(Rachel enters.)

Monica:Hey, Rach, did you make your money?

Rachel: No, not even close. Forget Vail, forget seeing my family, forget shoop, shoop, shoop.

Monica: Rach, here's your mail.

Rachel:Thanks, you can just put it on the table.

Monica:(insistently) No, here's your mail.

Rachel: Thanks, you can just put it on the table.

Monica:(gives her an envelope) Would you just open it?

(Rachel opens it. Inside is the money she needed.)

Rachel: Oh my god, oh, you guys are great.

Monica:We all chipped in.

Joey: (to Monica) We did?

Monica: (to Joey) You owe me 20 bucks.

Rachel: Thank you. Thank you so much!

Monica:(hands Chandler a bag) Chandler, here you go, got your traditional Thanksgiving feast, you got your tomato soup, your grilled cheese fixin's, and your family size bag of Funyuns.

Rachel:Wait, wait, Chandler, this is what you're havin' for Thanksgiving dinner? What, what, what is it with you and this holiday?

Chandler: All right, I'm nine years old.

Ross: Oh, I hate this story.

Chandler:We just finished this magnificent Thanksgiving dinner. I have--and I remember this part vividly--a mouthful of pumpkin pie, and this is the moment my parents choose to tell me they're getting divorced.

Rachel: Oh my god.

Chandler:Yes. It's very difficult to appreciate a Thanksgiving dinner once you've seen it in reverse.
