  ?Where we last left off?

Chandler: (now awake) twins?
Joey: (to Chandler) thatís two babies
Chandler: I know that you idiot
Joey: just wanted to make sure
Monica: (very worried) I know twins are a great thing but how are we gonna afford two babies I mean I can barely afford rent and food IÖ IÖ (Voice trails off)
Chandler: honey, honey, breatheÖ okay Iím sure, 100% positively sure weíll be just fine
Phoebe: yeah and if you ever need help with like money or babysitting weíre all here for you
Chandler: and Iím sure my mom would chip inÖ of course we would have to tell her about everything first
Monica: (still a little jumpy) you havenít told her yet? Why not, you said you were gonna tell herÖ
Chandler: (interrupting) sheís flying in, in a few days to promote her new book Iíd rather tell her in person then
Monica: (back to normal ~ well as normal as she could be) okay, okay Iím fine now itís probably just the mood swing thing you know
Chandler: itís okay I understand. Hey I have and idea why donít you and I go baby shopping tomorrow. Just you and me, I can take a day off of work
Phoebe: that sounds like fun Mon youíll love it
Chandler: yeah, Iíll go call in right now
Monica: bye honey
 
 (Chandler leaves)

Joey: Iíll be right back too

 (Joey exits)
 [Chandler and Joeyís apt]
 {Chandler is on the phone and Joey enters}

Chandler: (on the phone) Öso Iíll see ya. Yup bye (hangs up)
Joey: hey man can you believe it youíre gonna be a father of two!
Chandler: (not impressed) yeah I know
Joey: dude, whatís up, I thought this was a good thing
Chandler: it is a good thing but what if Iím not a good father then I end up with, not one, but two screwed up kids
Joey: youíll be a great dad
Chandler: how are you so sure
Joey: Iíve seen you with Ben and youíre great. Okay I know Ben isnít your kid but does that matter?
Chandler: sure whatever, you know what Iím going to go take a walk to sort every thing out

 [Monica and Rachelís apt]
 {Monica and Phoebe are talking (but you canít here them) then Rachel finally comes out of her room}

Rachel: hey by the sounds I heard coming through my door Iím guessing you told Chandler about the twins
Monica: well you guessed right
Phoebe: we heard voices coming from your room, who were you talking to?
Rachel: (surprised by the question) huh?
Phoebe: who were you talking to we heard voices from your room
Rachel: umÖ no one just someone from work
Phoebe: oh okay
Rachel: (while grabbing her coat) yeah she wanted to know if I could come in and help her with some stuff so I gotta go bye

 (Rachel leaves in a hurry)

Monica: (after she leaves) somethingís up because the phone never rang, so that means Rachel called whoever she was talking to
Phoebe: but why would she lie about going to work. What would she be hiding?
Monica: I donít know but Iím gonna find out
Phoebe: but if you spy on her and find out her secret before she tells you, that is if she tells you, she might get mad because you didnít tell her about you and Chandler
Monica: you know you have a point
Phoebe: (smiling) of course Iím right
Monica: I never said you were right I just said you had a point
Phoebe: sounds the same to me
Monica: whatever that doesnít matter right now what matters is whatís going on with Rachel

 [Just as she says that the scene changes to Rachel and some guy (you canít see his face) eating lunch at a little café. oh and theyíre by a window]

Rachel: (finishing a little story) Öso now theyíre having twins and getting married andÖ andÖ itís just a whole big mess, Iím just so glad Iíve got you
Guy: (still canít see his face) me too

 (They kiss)

 [Cut to Chandler (on his walk) as he stops to do a double take on something he sees through a windowÖ itís RACHEL and RÖRÖ RICHARD BURKE!!!!!!] ?You thought I was gonna say Ross didnít you, come on admit it- well itís been done so I decided for Rachel and Richard to give a go (shh donít tell Monica itís a secret) well back to the show/story?

 (Chandler starts running down the street)
 [Joey and Chandlerís apt]
 {Joey is sitting in his chair watching TV then Chandler runs in}

Chandler: (out of breath) IÖ IÖ sheÖ himÖ

Chandler: Joey you werenít supposed to tell her why couldnít you just make up a lie or something
Joey: Ďcause I couldnít think of one. Sorry Mon about ruining the surprise
Monica: thatís okay. Hey have you noticed Rachel lately she was acting really weird today
Chandler/Joey: she seems normal, no havenít seen anything, she looks fine to me, etc
Monica: okay then see you later
Chandler: wait what have you noticed about her
Monica: not much except that earlier today she left in a hurry then came back all dreamy like she was on a date with someone she really liked but doesnít want anyone to know
Chandler: I see

Joey: well heís not Monicaís Richard anymore now heís Rachelís Richard
Ross: does Monica know
Joey: are you kidding look Rachelís still living
Ross: so how do you know
Joey: Chandler saw them kissing in a restaurant
Ross: wait Chandler knows and Monica doesnít I donít know if I like the idea of him keeping secrets from her
Joey: woah chill out dude. Rachel said that she was going to tell Monica herself
Ross: yeah okay

 [Cut to Chandler and Monica shopping]

Monica: (picking up an outfit) oh isnít this just adorable
Chandler: (not really listening) huh? Oh yeah sure
Monica: (concerned) Chandler, honey whatís wrong
Chandler: oh nothing I was just thinking
Monica: about what
Chandler: (holding a stuffed animal) I wasÖ you know just wondering if Iím gonna be a good father or not
Monica: you are, and I have no doubt about it but thatís not whatís bugging you
Chandler: youíre right but I donít know if I should tell you
Monica: (getting upset) tell me!
Chandler: well I kinda know Rachelís secret, but sheís gonna tell you herself
Monica: well how do you know
Chandler: I found out on my own but if she doesnít tell you by tonight Iíll tell you myself because I hate keeping secrets from you
Monica: thanks sweetie but Iím sure sheíll tell me in her own time

 [Chandler and Joeyís]
 {Ross and Joey are there hanging out}
 (Chandler enters)

Chandler: hey guys
Ross: (in his own way) hi
Chandler: (to Joey) whatís up with him
Joey: he found out about Rachel
Chandler: okay good now we have to get her to tell Monica
Ross: we canít force Rachel to tell Mon
Chandler: well theyíre both over in their apartment right now, so we might not need to

 [Monica and Rachelís]
 {Monica is eating and Rachel is pacing}

Rachel: umÖ okay Mon (sitting down) listen Mon
Monica: oh honey what is it
Rachel: remember when you and Chandler were secretly together. Well of course you remember it was just last week
Monica: (impatient) God Rach just get to the point!
Rachel: (startled and quickly) Iíve secretly been going out with Richard Burke!
Monica: (shocked) excuse me, Richard! You were with Richard the other day? How could you do this to me? You know I donít even talk to me, because god knows I wonít be talking to you (she leaves in anger slamming the door)
Rachel: (crying, goes to the phone and dials) hi I told Monica and sheís pretty upset, I donít think she wantís to see me for a while so can I stay at your house
Richard: (on the phone) sure
Rachel: okay Iím just going to get some things together and Iíll be right over

 [Chandler and Joeyís apt]
 {The guys are talking and Monica enters crying but walks straight into Chandlerís room with out saying anything}

Chandler: (watches her walk right by) um Iím guessing she talked to RachelÖ maybe I should go in and see if sheís okay
Ross: good idea, Iím going to check on Rach

 [Chandlerís room]
 {Mon is on the bed, crying, Chandler enters and comforts her}

Monica: this is the secret that you knew? Why didnít you tell me?
Chandler: you told me not to, and I thought it would be better if Rachel told you herself. Iím so sorry
Monica: thereís nothing for you to be sorry about, itís not your fault that sheís a back stabbing bitch
Chandler: now thatís no way to talk about your best friend
Monica: best friend? Yeah right! How many best friends do you know that date your ex-boyfriend!
Chandler: well technically I donít have any ex-boyfriendsÖ
Monica: Chandler! You know what I mean!
Chandler: okay, okay letís look at it this way, shall we? You broke up with Richard and now heís free to date anyone he wantís and besides youíre over him so it doesnít matter. You are over him arenít you?
Monica: of course Iím over him but that has nothing to do with anything. Everyone knows the most important unwritten rule of dating
Chandler: which isÖ?
Monica: (who by the way has stopped crying) never date your friendís ex! I mean how would you feel if Joey started dating Kathy again
Chandler: I see your point but even if Joey dated Kathy, Janice, or any of my other ex-girlfriends none of them would matter to me as long as I had you
Monica: did I ever tell you that you were a great ass-kisser. You know what Iím gonna try and not let Rachel and Richard bother me
Chandler: thatís all I ask (kisses her)

 [Rachelís and Monicaís apt]
 {Ross and Rachel are talking}

Ross: how can do this to her, Monica is your best friend
Rachel: well she kept her and Chandlerís relationship secret
Ross: yeah well Chandler isnít one of your ex-boyfriends, who you really loved
Rachel: I know, I know but I donít know what to do, I mean I really like Richard
Ross: I know but is he really worth jeopardizing a friendship? Did you even at all think of Monica? How did this happen in the first place?
Rachel: well it all happened kinda fast, Iím not even sure how. See called for Monica the other day and well she wasnít home so we started talking, one thing led to another and the next thing I knew I was on a date with him.
Ross: why did you accept
Rachel: I donít know maybe because I didnít want to be alone anymore

 (Monica enters)

Monica: (to Rachel) hi can I talk to you for a sec
Rachel: uhÖ sure
Ross: Iíll just go

 (Ross exits)

Rachel: listen Monica Iím so sorry I didnít know what I was thinking, Iím so sorry
Monica: (softly) itís okay
Rachel: it isÖ why?
Monica: Iíve decided Iím just gonna let it go, itís been three years since we broke he can date anyone he wants
Rachel: thanks Mon (they hug) but I canít date him anymore, it just wouldnít feel right. Plus I was dating him for all the wrong reasons
Monica: why did you go out with him
Rachel: because I didnít want to be alone anymore
Monica: youíll find some one donít worry. I thought Iíd end up alone then I found the love of my life
Rachel: (sarcastic) and you left him for Chandler
Monica: very funny you know youíre going to find your ďChandlerĒ someday
Rachel: (sarcastic) oh great so Iím gonna end up with a smart-ass who looks gay
Monica: hey Iím trying to be serious here
Rachel: Iím sorry, Iím going to call Richard and break up with him
Monica: Iíll just leave you alone, bye (Monica leaves)

 [Central Perk]
 {everyone but Rachel is there}

Monica: (whiney) but I want coffee
All: (in unison) NO!
Monica: you guys are no fun

 (Rachel enters)

All: hey Rach, hi, etc.
Rachel: hi guys I did it, I broke up with Richard
Phoebe: wait since when were you going out with Richard?
Rachel: you didnít know?
Phoebe: no!
Rachel: oh Iím sorry
Phoebe: see Iím always the last to know!
