Friends - [6x09] - The One Where Ross Got High
"The One Where Ross Got High" is the ninth episode of the sixth season of Friends, which aired on November 25, 1999. Monica hosts Thanksgiving andChandler uses the occasion to try and win her parents over. The episode involves a subplot where Rachel makes a trifle including a layer of beef.
It was written by Greg Malins and directed by Kevin S. Bright. It guest starred Elliott Gould as Jack Geller,Christina Pickles as Judy Geller, and Elle Macphersonas Janine Lecroix.
The Geller parents are coming over for Thanksgiving, but they don't know that Chandler and Monica are living together, or even dating for that matter. Chandler tries to charm the Gellers to get them to like him so that they can tell them the truth. Monica lets Rachel make the dessert this year, but the cookbook pages are stuck together and Rachel ends up making a trifle that is half trifle half shepherds pie. It comprises layers of ladyfingers, jam, custard, raspberries, more ladyfingers, beef sauteed with peas and onions, a little more custard, bananas, then whipped cream.
Ross finally figures out why the Jack and Judy don't like Chandler: in college Ross smoked pot in the dorm room and when his parents walked in, he blamed it on Chandler. Joey and Ross are also invited to spend Thanksgiving with Janine, Joey's roommate, and her hot dancer friends, but the girls make them stay. Ross finally tells his parents that it wasn't Chandler. Monica and Ross takes this opportunity to yell out secrets about each other they have wanted to say, and finally, Ross states that Monica and Chandler are living together. This results in Phoebe admitting to being in love with Jacques Cousteau; Rachel realizing she wasn't supposed to put beef in the trifle; and Joey saying he just wants to leave. The Gellers take a liking to Chandler and thank him for putting up with their children after all these years.
