    Rachel finds out.

    By Canogaparkcindy, May 17, 2009

    A start of a very dysfunctional on & off relationship. Well sort of. See what I mean by dysfunctional? Ross gets off a plane with another woman wight when Rachel is about to declare her love for him. I l;love the fantasy scene with Ross standing there in Rachel's mind, telling her she should be with him while she is talking to Carl. I love how Monica gets upset and Ross & Rachel aren't even dating yet. The plot that brought the rating down, was Joey's plot. It should of all been about Ross & Rachel. Not a filler to mess up a perfect finale. That's just my opinion. Can't wait to see what happens next!moreless

    What a FANTASTIC way to end the season.

    By harryathouse, Apr 09, 2008

    At Central Perk, the gang is there. Ross shows baby pictures to the group.

    Rachel grabs the pictures & just wants to kiss him all over. Ross is basically drooling over her at this point. Chandler makes a "pfft" noise at Ross' fawning over Rachel.



    Chandler walks over to Joey, who is looking at his check. Joey is in need of some money & asks to borrow some from Chandler. Chandler wants to know where his money is going. Joey tells him he is participating in a research program at NYU Med School. Ross overhears and wants to know what kind of research. Joey tells the group it's a fertility study. The group makes fun of his "contributions." But he gets $700 in 2 weeks for his time. Monica & Phoebe are preparing for a barbecue for Rachel's birthday. Joey & Chandler enter the apartment with charcoal.

    Phoebe asks Joey how is his relationship with Melanie going. Joey says it's tough because she wants to have sex but he can't for another week, until he is finished with the program.moreless

    Rachel finally gets it!

    By Starlet2586, Mar 21, 2007

    After a stellar first season, Rachel finally figures out what is going on. I loved how Chandler was the one to spill the beans. He is so socially awkward sometimes and I love when he gets talking and stuff just comes out. How adorable! Rachel running to the airport at the end is so great, but seeing Ross with Julie in the end is heartbreaking. The suspense left at the end of the episode only makes all the viewers' anticipation for season 2 that much greater. A fabulous ensemble comedy with a great first season finale.moreless
