Series 6, Episode 1
The One With The Circus Monkey
Written by Ryan & Justin, courtesy of J and Ryan Ltd.
This is our first script of series 6 that we think would be really cool, just to recap Monica is still with Chandler, and nothing else much has changed. We decided to write this script because we like Friends so much and we would like to see if we could write a script as good as some others that have been written by Friends fans - like Chris Freestone. His 3 scripts so far are brilliant and they inspired us to write this.
If you have anything to say about this script. Praise, insults, comments, tips anything just send us an E-mail at;Skill@justin88.freeserve.co.uk
