It's Christmas time and Monica tries tipping with cookies, rather than cash, with mixed results. Phoebe learns that the guy in the pictures her grandmother keeps around is not her father but the Macy's photo frame model. She tries to track down her real father, but in the end she feels that she is not ready to meet him. Chandler and Joey wait too late to shop for presents, and are forced to buy gifts from a gas station. Ross asks Rachel to make a list about him, but he is offended when she calls him obsessive.
