I am totally Team Ross on the No One is Ready episode. First, they go to Joey's horrid plays and try to say something nice. They listen to Phoebe sing and try to say something nice. It wasn't going to kill them to attend Ross' big night. My dad, who was amazing in so many ways, was always late. If the wedding started at 7 pm and was 30 minutes away, you could almost guarantee that at 6:20 he'd start looking around at all of us standing there ready to go and announce that he should probably go get a shower. The number of times the procession was the bridesmaids, the maid of honor, our family, and then the bride - I am shuddering just remembering it. Did we make it in time? Technically, yes, and the friends who knew us thought it was hilarious, but I hated it. Husband knows I just about panic at the thought of being late, even if it turns out to be no big deal. It's a big deal to me, which counts for something.
Also, I never bought that Rachel didn't know what she wanted to wear beforehand and was slow just because she was trying to look pretty for Ross. Now if they wanted to make it that Rachel had picked a dress, but it was the only thing Phoebe could fit into after her dress was ruined and that is why Rachel is now at a loss - I could have bought that. But finding out Rachel hadn't put a thought into what would be appropriate for her boyfriend's big evening? Nope.
My rant is over.
