Will, an old friend of Ross' is in town and Monica invited him for Thanksgiving dinner. Will used to be really fat in high school and he really hates Rachel because she was horrible to him. Will shows his hatred and tells Rachel they had the "I-hate-Rachel-Greene-Club" in high school. The members of the club: Will and Ross! Their club spread a rumor that Rachel had both male and female reproductive parts. Everybody knew about the rumor and Rachel figures that's why certain guys wouldn't go out with her. It turns out that Rachel told everyone about how Ross made out with the old librarian and Ross is so upset he wants to be in the club again. Phoebe also joins the club because she's never been in a club. Monica tells them they're being childish and they should focus on the important things going on in their lives like having a baby together. Written by Anonymous

I laughed so hard during this episode, it was another great Friends accomplishment, and goddamn Brad Pitt is HOT!!!

Summarization of the episode:

Its thanksgiving and Monica invited and old friend Will ((Brad Pitt)) from highschool to join them. Evidently he hated Rachel and formed an "I hate Rachel Green" club with Ross. Will and Ross started a rumor that Rachel had both male and female reproductive parts, and they soon find out that Rachel started a rumor that Ross made out with a 50 year old teacher named Ms. Altman.

Funny as hell, loved it.
