(As you know, both of them admitted that they love each other, the problem
is that they didn't say it directly to each other.)
(Bank near the unversity where Ross is)
The paramedics, ambulance, and NYPD came just after Rachel called. They put
Ross in a strecher and the doctors checked
on his heartbeat, he's alive but unconscious and loosing a lot of blood.
They started putting medicine and wiping his
wounded knee and placed a temporary bandage to prevent the blood to flow a
Rachel's going bonkers and panicking like crazy calling everybody. She calls
Monica but she went to the restaurant with Joey
without bringing her mobile. She calls Chandler, but he's asleep. So she
just left them a message. She calls 911, told them
that she was the one who called about the man that was shot and ask them
where the paramedics took Ross (we can see all
this but can't hear anything)

Rachel: Did the paramedics take a Mr. Ross Geller here?
Info Nurse (lets call her Amy. She's played by Lisa Ling): Let me check

hour and a half ago. He's in the ICU. Are you a family
Rachel: Well, kinda, he is my ex husband
Amy: Alright, take this (id) to pass his room. (she gives her the id and a

comes out of the room. lets call him Dr. Matthews

Dr. Matthews: (sees Rachel coming closer) sorry miss you can't go in
Rachel: but the nurse told me I could with this pass
Dr. Matthews: I'm sorry, I should've asked you before I said anything. So
are you the patient's wife?
Rachel: No, well actually ex-wife. Why do you ask?
Dr. Matthews: b/c it's either the wife or the parents get the news first.
And you don't seem old enough to be his mother

know I'm not that funny, but the least you could do is smile
Rachel: I'm sorry, I'm just really worried about him
Dr. Matthews: Miss (signals her to give her name)
Rachel: Green, Rachel Green
Dr. Matthews: Miss Green, he's ok now. However he's still unconscious
because he lost a lot of blood. He still needs a little
more to be on the safe side. (pauses) Are you a type

dries her tears and looks back to him) b/c of you
(Rachel is sitting really close to him. they just looked at each other,
looking at her with those eyes, and Rachel looking
at him with tears dripping one by one. Ross caught her off gaurd and kisses
her affectionately and she kisses back. After
that moment Ross wiped her tears again and just touches her face gently.
