The gang’s plans for Thanksgiving go awry after they get locked out of Monica and Rachel’s apartment.
Chandler: I know this isn’t the kind of Thanksgiving that all of you all planned, but for me, this has been really great, you know, I think because it didn’t involve divorce or projectile vomiting. Anyway, I was just thinking, I mean,
Chandler (to Rachel): if you’d gone to Vail,
Chandler (to Monica and Ross): and if you guys had been with your family,
Chandler (to Joey): if you didn’t have syphilis and stuff, we wouldn’t be all together, you know? So I guess what I’m trying to say is that I’m very thankful that all of your Thanksgivings sucked.
All: That’s so sweet.
Ross: And hey, here’s to a lousy Christmas.
Rachel: And a crappy New Year.
Chandler: Here, here!

4The One With The Football (Season 3)
The sibling rivalry between Monica and Ross dominates Thanksgiving proceedings when the gang decide to play a game of football.
