You know the story. Someone gets involved with the party planning that shouldn't, and chaos ensues.
Usually that chaos involves a stripper. Sometimes it just involves a drunk dial.
Either way, bachelor and bachelorette parties rarely go as planned on our favorite television shows. Check out some of the most memorable (and terrible) parties below!
Pheobe had a very different idea about what her bachelorette party would be like than the friends who threw it for it, which resulted in a last minute stripper (played by Danny Devito) who no one wanted to see.
Derek realizes he's supposed to throw Burke a bachelor party, so he throws together a last minute gathering at Joe's. The most significant moments of the party happens when Derek goes to the bar to get a drink, and we meet Lexi Grey for the first time.
In an episode aptly titled "Ben Franklin," Jim is in charge of ordering a stripper for the women, but orders a Ben Franklin impersonator instead. The guy really knows his stuff, too.
Parks and Recreation
Leslie's bachelorette party does not go as planned, even though it starts out with everything you'd expect from a typical bachelorette party. Unfortunately, it ends with the ladies digging stuff out of a pit all night. The guys do better with the bachelor party, which ends up with each of them getting the bachelor party they never had.
The Big Bang Theory
The guys don't quite make it to Leonard's bachelor party on The Big Bang Theory, since they end up with a flat tire on the side of the road that have no idea how to change. Still, they managed to make the evening fun, including Sheldon belting out "We Will Rock You."
Before calling off her wedding to Max Medina, Lorelai's bachelorette party is held at a drag club, where they talk the bouncer into letting in an underage Rory. Lorelai has a few too many long island iced teas and drunk dials Christopher, then realizes Max isn't the one.
