The One After Ross Says Rachel

Episode 5.01

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

Despite the fact that Ross said "Rachel" in his vows instead of "Emily," they go through with the wedding; but then Emily sneaks out the window at the reception and apparently never wants to see Ross again. Rachel fixates on the fact that "he said my name!" Chandler and Monica agree that their new relationship can only continue while they are away from home... but then have a very difficult time arranging to be alone together. While waiting at the airport in hopes that Emily will still show up for the honeymoon to Athens, Ross bumps into Rachel. She encourages him to go to Athens anyway; he invites her to come along. While boarding, Ross goes back to get his jacket and discovers that Emily has arrived and has witnessed the two of them preparing to leave together. Ross misses the flight; Rachel doesn't.

The one where they said....

Judy Geller: This is worse than when he married the lesbian.

Joey: Well, that went well. Yeah.
Chandler: It could've been worse. He could've shot her.

Joey: Hey, no matter what happens with Ross and Emily, we still get cake, right?

Phoebe: Uh, hello, this is Ross Geller's personal physician, Dr. Phalange.
Mrs. Waltham: Who?
Phoebe: Yeah, I've discovered that Ross forgot to take his brain medicine. Uh, now without it, uh, in the brain of Ross, uh, women's names are interchangeable, through no fault of his own.
Mrs. Waltham: Oh my God, Phoebe!
Phoebe: No, not Phoebe, Dr. Phalange. Oh no! You have it too!

Phoebe: [Facing Joey] You ate meat! [Facing Chandler and Monica] You had sex!
Chandler: No we didn't!
Phoebe: I know you didn't. I was talking about Monica.

Joey: All right, I'm gonna go say "hi" to the chick and the duck.
Phoebe: Oh, me too!
Joey: Why would you need to say "hi" to them? You've been feeding them for four days!
Phoebe: Oh... right. Maybe I'll just go home.

Chandler: I'm still on London time, does that count?
Monica: Oh, that counts!

Rachel: No, you're not an idiot, Ross. You're a guy very much in love.
Ross: Same difference.
