Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Marlo Thomas guest stars as Rachel's (Jennifer Aniston) mother, Sandra Green, who shows up at the apartment with startling news. This comes just as Ross' (David Schwimmer) ex-wife, Carol (Jane Sibbett), is about to marry her girlfriend, Susan (Jessica Hecht), in an event catered by Monica (Courteney Cox). And Phoebe's (Lisa Kudrow) elderly massage client Mrs. Adelman dies -- but her spirit isn't about to leave until she sees how the of rest of the episode comes out. Candice Gingrich, sister of Senator Newt Gingrich, has a significant supporting role.
