The One With The Vacation, Part One


Written by: Monica2887


This is my second fanfic. I would love any kind of feedback. My favorite characters are Monica and Chandler so I might favor them a little. This takes place right after my last fanfic. Enjoy!!!


SCENE 1- Monica and Rachel’s apartment; everyone is there, Monica is cooking, Chandler is sitting on the couch talking to Ross who was sitting next to him, Phoebe and Rachel are taking grapes and trying to balance them on Joey’s head because Joey is asleep on the chair.

Rachel: You know what, this is fun. [ she places a grape on Joey’s head ] [ Chandler and Ross notice them]

Ross: Rach, that is sad.

Rachel: Yeah I know. [ She gets up and kicks Joey’s leg. Joey wakes up and shakes the grapes off of himself]

Joey: What was going on?

Phoebe: Nothing little boy. Go back to bed. [ in a singing voice ] Go to bed Joey, right now. Because if you don’t I will have a cow.

Chandler: Pheebs, just because it worked the last five times does not mean it will work again [ interrupted by a snoring Joey ] Never mind.

[ they smile as the scene changes to the next day and they are all at central perk. Joey is sitting at the table, chandler and Monica are together on the couch, Rachel is standing by Joey, phoebe is leaning against the chair, and Ross is in the chair]
Ross: That is sooo great. But why are we using Joey’s money? That is not fair.
