Dan: Hey Rachel, oh while youre here Id like you to meet my new girlfriend, Cici.
Cici: Hi, Rosa is it.
Cici: Hi, Im new here. Yeah, Danny and I were just talking about you.
[Danny starts to look worried and tries to let Cici know that it was private]
Rach: Oh yeah, what did he say. (Rachel thinks its something good so she is smiling)
Cici: He said that he thought you
Danny: (interrupting her) Come on Cici lets go.
Rach: No I wanna hear?
[Cici carries on while Danny stars at the floor]
Cici: He said he thinks you fancy him, but he doesnt feel the same way, but he doesnt want to hurt your feelings.

Ross: Oh I um found this picture. Its of Em and me.
Rach: I get it!

Ross: And I thought me and Emily were just getting over our differences.
[Rachel stands up]
Rach: I wish I could find someone who loved me, (pause, turns and looks at Ross who is looking at the floor.) like you!
[Ross looks at Rachel, then stands up and looks into Rachels eyes. He leans forward and they start kissing passionately and start going towards Rachels room.]
[The Knicks game, the Knicks have the ball, and Joey is very excited]
Joey: Come on Knicks, Come on Knicks!
[The Knicks score and Phoebe gets over excited and starts dancing]

Mon: Chandler, its good news dont worry. I promise.
Chan: Ok, what is it?
Mon: Chandler, Im (pause) pregnant!
Chan: Oh my god, (pause) great. (He forces a smile, stands up and hugs her)
[From the other side of the hug you she him, looking shocked and disappointed]
Mon: You really all right with it? (Looking pleased) I thought youd act differently.
Chan: No its great and just what you always wanted. (Thinks) But arent the others going to get suspicious when you are pregnant and you havent told them who the father is?
Mon: You think we should tell them?
Chan: Yes, but I think it can wait a while.
Mon: (Relieved) Ok.
Chan: Ok. (He walks over to her and they kiss.)
[The next day, Monica and Rachel apartment. Ross is waking up. He then sees Rachel and widens his eyes in shock.]
Ross: Rachel, Rachel, get up!

[The Coffee House, Monica, Chandler, Ross and Rachel are there. Ross and Rachel are looking very uncomfortable and are sitting on either side of the couch.]

Phoe: (interrupting) I want to tell it!
Joey: Okay! (Takes a step back)
Phoe: Well, we were watching the game and the Knicks scored, and I got all excited. So I stood up and started dancing and, (pause) now Im a CHEERLEADER!

[Everyone looks surprised]
[Chandler, Joeys and Ross Apartment. Chandler is alone and Monica enters.]
Mon: Hey, you alone?
Mon: Listen, I was thinking we could tell the others about us in about (pause) a minute.
Chan: A minute!
Mon: Look Chandler I know its sudden.
Mon: But Im fed up of sneaking around, and if we really love each other there is no need to keep it a secret anymore.
Chan: Fine! (They kiss)
[Monica and Rachels apartment. Everyone is there and Monica and Chandler are about to tell them all something]
Mon: You guys have probably been wandering why Ive been sneaking around since I got back from London, Well the truth is Ive sort of been dating someone.
All: (apart from Chandler) Who?
Mon: Well um (looks at Chandler) Chandler. (She smiles at Chandler and holds his hand.)
[Everyone looks shocked and (apart from Ross) pleased for them, but Ross looks shocked and angry with Chandler.]
Ross: Great (Trying to make a Happy face.)
Phoe: Thats brilliant. (Pause) Ok my turn my turn. You guys want to see some of my moves, (they all nod) ok, one, two, three.
[She starts dancing and singing rubbishly, then she is interrupted by a Knock at the door. She opens it and its a salesman.]
Salesman: Hello, I was just wandering have you ever thought of soundproofing your apartment.
Salesman: Well I heard your voice from downstairs and I wanted to die. It was terrible. [Phoebe starts to look angry.] I was nearly strangling my self It was just so.
Phoe: Ok! [Very angry.]
[Phoebe looks very upset, as the salesman goes, and they all look sorry for her.]
Mon: Dont listen to him Pheebs, I liked it.
Phoe: Really? (Looking pleased)
Rach: I thought it was brilliant
Joey: I gonna teach that guy a lesson.
Ross: (dazed to Monica) I cant believe you slept with Chandler.
[Everyone stares at him.]
[Monica and Rachels apartment. Phoebe, Rachel and Monica are there.]
Rach: Can I talk to you guys for a minute?
Mon: Yeah, ok.
Phoe: Give me a Y, give me an E, give me an S, what have you got YYYEEESSS!
Rach: Ok. (Stares at Phoebe.) Last night, when I came in from work, Ross was here and he was really upset about Emily, because he found a picture of them together. I was also upset because Danny has a new girlfriend. Well we um kinda got really drunk and well, (Looks really uncomfortable.) when I woke up this morning he was there.
[Monica gasps and Phoebe looks as if she is really clever.]
Phoe: Um Rachel it sounds like you slept with him.
Rach: (Rachel glares at Phoebe.) I know that! I Wanted you to tell me what to do, so, what should I do?
[Cut to Chandler, Joeys and Ross apartment. Ross is there telling Joey an Chandler about Rachel and the night before.]
Joey: Get back together with her!
Chan: Yeah, get back together with her.
Ross: Look I dont even know if she wants to get back together with me. Do you think shed want to?
Joey: Absolutely, she told you she loved you when you came back from England, right?
Ross: Yeah, but
Chan: Then go for it!
[Monica and Rachels apartment. Monica and Phoebe are still talking to Rachel.]
Mon: Come on Rach go for it. Go on march out there and see if he wants to get back together with you.
[The hall in between the apartments. Ross and Rachel have just come out of each apartment. They spot each other and are very uncomfortable.]
Rach&Ross: I think we need to talk!
Ross: Ok you wanna go first.
Rach: Um ok. What happened with us? I mean do you want to get back together?
Ross: Do you?
Rach: I asked you first!
Ross: Well Ok yes, I guess I do. (Pause.) Do you?
Rach: Yeah, but if were going to fight a lot again I think we should just be friends.
Ross: Well then I guess the big question is do you forgive me?
[Meanwhile, In Monica and Rachels apartment. Phoebe is looking through the peephole.]
Mon: Phoebe! Its My turn, let me have a look
[Back to the hall Ross and Rachel are still talking.]
Rach: Ross Im sorry, but, I cant forgive you for what you did, but I would love to get back together
Ross: I would to, but, (Getting angry.) if your going to make me take responsibility of the whole relationship again, then forget it.
Rach: (Trying to calm down the situation.) I wouldnt do that. Look, we could start again, from square one.
Ross: (Angrily.) What? Through away everything we had? Im not going to do that!
Rach: (Getting angry.) Ok then maybe theres no point in us getting back together, and we should really think of what we want!
Ross: (angrily) Fine!
[They both turn around and start to go into their apartments, they stop, turn around and realise that they are still in love with each other. Ross goes over to Rachel and they start kissing. Ross stops.]
Ross: I know what I want Rach, (pause) I want you.
Rach: (touched) I want you to. But I think we need to talk about this.
Ross: Ok Ill come around later, when no one is in, ok?
Rach: (smiles) Ok Ill see you later. (She turns and leaves.)
Ross: Bye. (Ross watches her go and then goes in himself.)
[Monica and Rachels, Rachel enters and Monica and Phoebe start asking questions.]

Rach: (Sounding depressed.) I dont know, were going to talk later, so if you guys could
Mon: Yeah ok.
Phoe: Are you upset, (Rachel nods.) you wanna come down to the Coffee House with me and Mon.
[Later, Monica and Rachels apartment, Rachel is there nervous and pacing. Ross enters.]
Rach: Hey you.
Ross: Ok, do you wanna talk first, again.
Rach: Ok, um First I need you to understand that after what weve been through its gonna be hard to just go back to what we were like before and secondly I still dont know if I can forgive you.
Ross: Ok I can accept that, as long as you can accept that I wont take responsibility for the whole relationship
Rach: Ok, but I need to learn to trust you. So you wanna get back together?
Ross: Yes, I do. You?
Rach: Well yeah.
[Ross and Rachel stare at each others eyes for a moment, then Ross steps forward and kisses Rachel passionately. When the kiss ends they hug. As we fade to.]
