The One Where Rachel Has a Baby, part 1

Episode 8.23

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

Ross rushes Rachel to the hospital using his specially tested route, but they still end up being the last ones there. They gets put in a semi-private room, and see couple after couple come and go, while Rachel's own labor progresses very slowly. Monica and Chandler decide to have a baby, and want to start trying right away -- at the hospital. Ross' mother stops by with her mother's engagement ring and a suggestion that Ross propose to Rachel. Ross refuses the idea but takes the ring to satisfy Mrs. Geller. Phoebe meets a nice guy (Cliff) at the hospital and sends Joey in (posing as Dr. Drake Ramoray) to find out more about him. The rotation of Ross and Rachel's roommates are disgustingly friendly; horribly rude; having unbelievably mild contractions; giving birth upon arrival; and... Janice.

The one where they said....

Monica: Well, we could start trying. Now.
Chandler: Right here?
Monica: No, not here. [Reconsiders] Maybe here.
Chandler: Wait a minute, it's perfect. We got a lot of time to kill and we're in a building that's full of beds!
Monica: And it's so clean!

Phoebe: I feel so bad for you; I broke my leg once too.
Man: Oh yeah? How'd yours happen?
Phoebe: Well, it's a long story. It's kind of embarrassing. Let's just say there was a typographical error with a sex manual.
