Season 1 (Nov. 17, 1994)
Usually the Macy's Day Parade is pretty bland. But when an 80-foot-long inflatable Underdog escapes the parade festivities, the friends gather on the roof of their Manhattan apartment building to watch as shooters from below ''take out'' the giant balloon. If that doesn't warm the cockles of your heart, there's always Chandler's memory of his ninth Thanksgiving, when his parents announced they were getting divorced.
WHAT'S COOKIN：When the turkey is overcooked and the apartment fills with smoke, Monica has toresort to an old standby: grilled cheese sandwiches。
Chandler'sheartfelt toast: ''I guess what I'm trying to say is I'm verythankful that all your Thanksgivings sucked.''
Season 2 (Nov. 16, 1995)
This second-season outing might be the least Thanksgiving-ish episode, but we're given our first sweet taste of''Mockolate'' — the synthetic chocolate substitute created by aspiring chef Monica。
WHAT'S COOKIN： Pumpkinpie with Mockolate cookie-crumb crust, Mockolate chip cookies, Mockolate cranberry cake.。。
Phoebe:''Oh, sweet Lord, this is what evil must taste like!''
Season 3 (Nov. 21, 1996)
Six players. Two teams. One Geller Cup. Oh, and a hot Dutch girl named Margha.When Monica and Ross reminisce about an annual childhood tradition — aThanksgiving football game that typically ended in name-calling and someone getting hurt — the friends decide to have their own version of "The GellerBowl”。
WHAT'S COOKIN：Sibling rivalry! Monica and Rosswon't let go of the football at the game's end, claiming the ball is still inplay, even when their respective teams have left to eat Thanksgiving dinner。
MEMORABLE QUOTE ：Ross(to Monica)： ''Cheater, cheater, compulsive eater!''
Season 4 (Nov. 20, 1997)
Fall for your best friend's significant other? You could try begging for forgiveness, or, if you're Chandler, you could offer to spend Thanksgiving dinner serving penance inside a coffin-size wooden box. Chandler gets awfully cozy in his new digs (just don'tcover his air hole)。
WHAT'S COOKIN：Monica, under much pressure: She'smaking dinner for her new love interest, who also happens to be her eye doctor,who also happens to be her ex-boyfriend's son. By the end of the night she'swearing a pirate's eye-patch after a mishap involving ice chips。
Rachel: ''Oh, I'm gonna take a nap. Turkey makes me sleepy.''
Monica: ''We haven't eaten yet.''
Rachel: ''I know, but all that work you're doing to get it ready and…'' [Leavesthe room]
Season 5 (Nov. 15, 1998)
Monica used to be fat. Like,waddling-around, can't-see-your-feet, fifteen-chins fat. And way back when?Rachel had a beak-shaped honker of a nose. Ross? The guy dressed like he fellout of an episode of Miami Vice. And Chandler, well, Chandler used to dress like an idiot too,but he also used to have a pinkie-toe. When the friends each reveal their worst Thanksgiving memories, the mystery behind Chandler's severed toe is finally solved — Monica (accidentally) did it! She's quickly forgiven, though, after performing an interesting interpretation of a ''turkey-trot'' — dancing with aturkey on her head。
WHAT'S COOKIN： Cleanone turkey. Stick head inside. Garnish bird with oversized sunglasses and partyhat. Shake hips and chest. It's sexy. Trust us。
MEMORABLE QUOTE ：
Joey: ''I am thankful for this beautiful fall we've beenhaving. Yeah, the other day I was at the bus stop and this lovely fall breezecame in out of nowhere and blew this chick's skirt right up. Oh, which remindsme: I am also thankful for thongs.''
Season 6 (Nov. 25, 1999)
Joey reveals his tips on how tofake-enjoy a meal so as not to hurt the chef's feelings: rub stomach, make''mmm'' noises, and smile as wide as possible.Also thisThanksgiving, Monica invites disaster — a.k.a. her parents — to dinner, wherethe topics include Ross' three divorces, Chandler's alleged pot-smoking habit,Rachel's horrendous cooking, and Phoebe's inappropriate crush on JacquesCousteau。
乔伊教大家微笑摸着肚子满足地 “Mmmmmmm”来搪塞瑞秋灾难般的甜品。 另外，莫妮卡邀请她的父母来和大家共度感恩节：吐槽罗斯的三次婚姻；钱德勒被栽赃吸大麻；菲比对JacquesCousteau的执迷不悟。
WHAT'S COOKIN：Rachel, who's in charge of dessert,decides to prepare an English trifle. It has ladyfingers, jam, custard...Sounds delish, right? Except there's a recipe mixup, so it also has beefsautéed with peas and onions, topped with another layer of custard and somebananas. The consensus? It's garbage. Ross thinks it ''tastes like feet.'' Butthe culinary venture isn't a complete failure — Joey can't wait for seconds。
MEMORABLE QUOTE ：Joey:''What's not to like? Custard? Good. Jam? Good. Meat?Gooooood.''
Season 7 (Nov. 23, 2000)
Can you name every U.S. state in less than six minutes? Get a pen and try to beat Joey's tally from the game at the center of this episode. (He comes up with 56.) Some how he manages to do betterthan Phoebe, who'd rather name types of celery. (She comes up with 1.)
WHAT'S COOKIN： For Ross, not much: Determined to starve until he lists all 50 states, he goes hungry (and a little insane) when his list falls short at 46. It takes him until the wee hours of the morning, but he finally lists 50 and sits down toenjoy a turkey dinner. (He comes up with two Nevadas。)
Joey(advising Rachel on the crush she's invited to dinner)： ''If he doesn't likeyou, then this is all just a moo point.''
Rachel: ''Huh. A moo point?''
Joey: ''Yeah, it's like a cow's opinion, you know, it just doesn't matter. It's'moo.''
瑞秋：“ 哞了？ ”
Season 8 (Nov. 1, 2001)
When Will Colbert (guest star BradPitt) shows up for Thanksgiving, he reminisces about his favorite high school extracurricular activity: acting as president of the ''I Hate Rachel Green''Club. Membership was low, but rumors spread by the club were pretty damaging.The lesson? Don't pick on the dork; he might grow up to look like Brad Pitt。(Okay, probably not. But he also might tell everyone at school you're ahermaphrodite。)
当威尔(安妮斯顿男友布拉德·皮特客串)出现在感恩节时，他回忆起了他高中最爱的角色：“我恨Rachel Green”俱乐部的主席。虽然俱乐部都是屌丝，但传播谣言的功力显然不一般。这季的感恩节告诉我们：不要嘲笑你的同学，就算他长得挫，谁 知道他长大后会不会长成布拉德·皮特啊！
WHAT'S COOKIN：Brad Pitt, smokin' hot! Also, Monica suggests skipping turkey, because she hates all the leftovers. Who hatesThanksgiving leftovers — that's like hating Christmas morning or the house that gives king-size candy bars at Halloween! Joey shares our sentiment, and demands Monica cook a 19-pound turkey, which he agrees to finish himself。
MEMORABLE QUOTE ：
Will Colbert: ''Look at her standing these with thoseyams. My two greatest enemies, Ross — Rachel Green and complex carbohydrates.''
威尔(仇视着瑞秋对罗斯说)： “瞧她站在洋芋边上的样子，罗斯，这就是我人生最大的俩敌人啊，Rachel Green，和碳水化合物。”
Season 9 (Nov. 22, 2002)
Amy Green (Christina Applegate, whowon an Emmy for her guest spot here) shows up. She isn't sure if Phoebe is a name or a funny sound. She notes that Joey is much less attractive in real lifethan he was on Days of Our Lives. She calls Emma, her own niece, Emmet. Yep, Rachel's sister is your typical nightmare-from-hell relative: She visits unannounced,asks to borrow something, and then ends up crashing for days。
WHAT'S COOKIN：Dinner is served on Monica's beloved''fancy plates'' — which are usually off limits, as Monica would rather gazelovingly at them than use them for something practical, like, say, food. Muchto her chagrin, the plates are used without her approval. And although Amy isthe boorish one through most of the episode, it's Chandler who accidentallybreaks all of Monica's china. Her expression makes us wonder what she lovesmore, her husband or the china。
Phoebe:''Yeah, we thought it might be nice to use the fancy china for dessert too.''
Monica: ''Oh, how nice. Maybe later we can all go blow our noses on my weddingdress!''
Season 10 (Nov. 20, 2003)
Monica hustles around all day to cook the perfect meal, which is inevitably ruined (a recurring theme in theseholiday episodes). This year's Thanksgiving high jinks and hilarity: Joey getshis head lodged in the door, extracts it, and in the process knocks over the entire feast。
WHAT'SCOOKIN: For Joey, a plan to deal with an expanding waistline fromeating too much turkey: borrowRachel's maternity pants!
Rachel: ''Happy Thanksgiving!''
Phoebe: ''Oh yeah! Happy needless-turkey-murder day.''
