Because of the Thursday night line-up that led with Friends, Thanksgiving was always an important episode for the series.
Chandler's most vivid memory of Thanksgiving is when he was nine years old, when his mother and father told him that they were getting divorced so his father could run off with the house-boy.
He frequently complains about his dislike of his job, and quits in Season 9, finding employment as a Junior Copywriter in an advertising agency.
Chandler is Ross Geller's best friend throughout and since college.
Joey goes so far as to say, "It wouldn't be Thanksgiving without Chandler bumming us out!
