The One With The Stripper

Episode 8.08

[Previous][Next][Back to the Master List]

Rachel tells her dad she's pregnant and Ross is the father. Mr. Green reacts harshly when he finds out Rachel isn't getting married, so she tells him Ross refused to marry her. Phoebe lets slip that Monica had a bachelorette party, upsetting Chandler and Joey, who hadn't been allowed a bachelor party. To make up for it, Monica hires Chandler a stripper, who turns out to be a prostitute. Rachel's dad accosts Ross while he's on his date with Mona, almost causing Ross to lose her.

The one where they said....

Joey: So, you and Mona, it's been a while now. How's it going?
Ross: It's good. It's going... it's going good. We get along great. She's... she's so...
Joey: Hot.
Ross: I was gonna say, "sweet," but ya-huh!

Monica: Who else do you want to invite?
Chandler: Uh, no no no. Just Ross and Joey is embarrasing enough.
Ross: Actually, sorry, I can't even make it. I'm seeing Mona again tonight.
Chandler: I understand. Who'd cancel an actual date just to go to a fake bachelor party?
Joey (on the phone): I'm sorry, I've gotta cancel tonight, baby.

Phoebe: I'm sorry I won't be able to make it to your imaginary wedding, but I'm really busy that day. Yeah, I already have a unicorn baptism and a leprechaun bar mitzvah.

Rachel: Oh, because we drove each other crazy.
Ross: Yeah.
Rachel: I mean, he was possesive, he was jealous, he just could never let the little things go.
Ross: Trying to date this woman.
Rachel: Right. But none of that compared to how kind and gentle and thoughtful he is.
Ross: Probably shouldn't touch me.
Mona: I just don't want to get in the middle of something so complicated.
Rachel: I get it, oh, but what relationship is not complicated? I mean, we all have our baggage. You must, too. Why else would you still be single? I'm so gonna leave right now.

Rachel: Oh, you guys made up. He's a good kisser, isn't he? I'm going.
