[Scene: Monica and Rachel's. Chandler and Monica are still debating about how to tell Rachel that
Chandler's moving in and she's moving out.]
Chandler: Okay, when are we gonna tell Rachel what actually is going to happen?
Monica: Soon! I-I just couldn't before. I mean, you saw how upset Joey got! I couldn't do that to her. She's
my best friend!
Chandler: Well, Joey's my best friend.
Monica: I'm not your best friend?
Chandler: You just said…Of course you're my best friend. Would you please tell Rachel though?
Monica: All right, all right. At least I'm prepared.
Chandler: Okay. [She grabs a tin of freshly baked cookies.] Oh, yes. [He reaches for one.]
Monica: [slapping his hand] Hey!
Chandler: Hey, hey!
Monica: These aren't for you! Are you upset?
Chandler: I am now!
[Rachel enters from her room.]
Rachel: Hey, roomie!
Chandler: Okay, bye! [exits]
Monica: Rach, there's something, uh, important I have to tell you.
Rachel: [gasps] Are you pregnant?
Monica: No! But I'm throwing this shirt away! I think there was a little misunderstanding before.
Monica: Um, when I said that, uh, that Chandler and I wanted to, um, live together, we meant alone together.
Rachel: [laughs] Oh, my God! Oh, that's funny. I can't believe I did that.
Monica: Oh, no, sweetie, no! You know what? This is my fault. I, I wasn't clear! I'm really sorry. And, listen,
you take as much time as you need to move out, okay? There's absolutely no rush!
Rachel: Okay. [sits back and resumes her reading]
Monica: Okay. Don't you want a cookie?
Rachel: Sure. [Monica hands her one.] Thanks.

Chandler: Look, I'm just gonna be across the hall. We can still do all the same stuff.
Joey: Yeah, but we won't be able to, like, get up in the middle of the night and have those long talks
about our feelings and the future.
Chandler: Not once did we do that.
Joey: Don't you remember that night? It was late and I was feeling sick and you said I would feel better
Chandler: Oh, yeah, I remember that.
Joey: I don't know. I'm just…just gonna miss living with you. [starts to stare at the ceiling]
Chandler: Yeah, me too, man. [stares at the ceiling too]
Joey: What the hell is that?
Chandler: That's disgusting.
Monica: So I, I told Rachel that it's just gonna be the two of us.
Chandler: Oh, yeah? Well, how'd she take it?
Monica: Really well. Yeah. Surprisingly well. Yeah, she didn't cry. She wasn't angry or sad. [slightly
Chandler: And you're upset because you didn't make your best friend cry?
Monica: I mean, all I'm asking for is just a little emotion! Is that too much to ask after six years? I mean,
what? Are-are-are Rachel and I not as close as you guys? I mean, do we not have as much fun? Don't

Ross: Basically, Rachel and I were in Vegas and we got drunk-
Russell: [interrupting] I'm sorry, is this the same Rachel whose name you said at the altar in the second
Ross: Yes-yes-yes! But I-I do not love her.
Russell: Oh, that's better then.
Ross: This was just a drunken mistake and I-I need to get it annulled.

Monica: But still, it's a big change. The end of an era, you might say!
Rachel: Are you okay? You're not blinking.
