-Oh, I don't know.
You know, it was one of those things

Can I see you for a second?

We decided I'd set up, then my mom
would bring Emma to Paris on Sunday.
Do you think they recognize

-She's just gonna shoot me down.
If I had more time to work on it,

Hey, so, what is the big surprise?
Oh, my gosh.
I will. Ross, come here.
You gotta think about last night

Oh, my God. Ross is going after Rachel,
and you guys have babies.

-The law makes you accept any fare.
-Of course I can. I'm their mother.
-Oh, yeah? Okay. Which one is that one?
-Is the woman on the bicycle still alive?
-Yeah, she jumped right back up.
We were wondering

-Okay. Let's find these birds.
-Ross, where are you going?
-To talk to Rachel.
Shoot, I had it. Oh, I can't believe this.
Oh, shoot. Damn it. Where is it?
I'm sorry. They were doing it before.
-She's got her cell. You could call her.
-I am not doing this over the phone.
Look, I have to go. I love you, and I

and hoo-hoos in this room, huh?
Then color-coded to correspond
with the forms in the back.
You want me to wash
my hands first, don't you?
- You were?
- In fact, my father was a den mother.
I'm just proud of us.
I just want you to know...
Fajitas! Be careful!
Very hot plate! Very hot!
I mean, you know,
he's really funny.
Oh, no, no, not Leslie. No.
I think we just ran out of kids.
You know, I'll help out more.
I can babysit anytime you want.
You don't have to eat the sour worms.
Those are for Owen.
And he paid me 50 dollars not to tell.
...extremely normal I find it...
- Dude, are you okay?
- I'm sorry.
You know what, Ross,
I think we're gonna take off too.
Yeah, you know, Joey, l...
You actually did that when you
were dancing to the Chicago soundtrack.
What are you talking about?
Aired 17 years ago - Sep 25, 2003
Monica, Chandler and Phoebe discover that they can eavesdrop on Ross & Charlie and Joey & Rachel through the walls of the hotel. Both new couples decide to wait before proceeding with their relationships, until the men can talk to each other. Ross
tells Joey on the plane ride back to New York, but Joey can't quite yet. Later, Ross walks in on Joey and Rachel kissing. Meanwhile, Monica combats her poofy hair by getting corn rows put in, and Phoebe discovers that Mike has a girlfriend.
Ross and Charlie. Joey and Rachel.
...and watching Miss Congeniality.
...Paradise Hotel Golf Resort and Spa.
If you see him, could you tell him
I'm looking for him?
All right? So just be nonchalant.
That is hard to say, Ross.
That is hard to say.
What is this? Well, let's see.
We kissed for 10 minutes...
Look, we appreciate all the advice...
Yeah. Yeah. We can wait.
We don't have to do anything tonight.
Yeah, we need to talk to Ross. Yeah.
- So did you talk to Joey?
- You never said that in your life.
- Not once.
Wow, it's kind of weird that I'm
sitting next to Charlie after we broke up.
I have a date.
I'll tell her that it's over
tonight at dinner. I promise.
All right, I'm gonna go talk to Joey.
I think this is the right time.
I'm gonna get the lasagna.
Well, Charlie and I were talking, and...
It's okay. You know, look...
You're an incredible friend,
do you know that?
Hey, if there is ever anything
I can do for you...
- It's great. He's an amazing guy.
- Oh, well, obviously, I think so too.
I couldn't. He was saying all
these really nice things about me.
We also appreciate gentle spanking
once in a while, just FYI.
...you're not having them taken out,
say, at the break of dawn?
Here's the thing. The cornrows were
a solution to your frizzy-hair problem.
As I recall, Rachel said she had never
noticed the shape of your skull before.
Hi! There she is! Hi, Emma.
Oh, my God, I missed you.
Why? Why me?
- Wow. Clearly this is not a good time.
- You think?
He's very sorry about that, and wishes
you the best luck in all your endeavors.
I just can't believe that Mike
didn't give me any warning.
...and let's face it,
Mike's kind of a wang.
Well, I was dancing around
and singing "No Woman, No Cry"...
Yeah, because that's what we do.
