How "Friends" Told The Greatest Thanksgiving Love Story Of All Time

Screw Ross and Rachel. It's all about Chandler and Monica!

Posted on

Ross (David Schwimmer) and Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) may have gotten all the attention, but the truth is Friends' greatest love story was that of Monica (Courteney Cox) and Chandler (Matthew Perry), and it all started on Thanksgiving in 1987.


Monica was so hurt by Chandler's comment that she, right then and there, decided to change some things about her lifestyle.

Yeah, she was healthier. And yeah, her heart wasn't in danger anymore. But this was about payback!


Years later, when they'd overcome the toe incident, Monica and Chandler still had the cheesy food that bonded them.

Monica gave in to Chandler's boycott of all things Thanksgiving-related. And Chandler gave a truly touching speech when all the food Monica cooked was burned.

During Thanksgiving 1996, Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow) attempted to get to the bottom of Mon's true feelings, but she avoided the question.

At that point, did it have to do with the football game or was Monica suppressing some deep emotions? Jury's out.
