  • Rachel finally tells...

  • This is one of the very best and classic Friends, without a doubt. Chandler and Monica's part is just classic. The weird couple who's not the typical lovey-dovey. Even better then the original episode (where they're stuck for interrogation).

  • Quotes (14)

    • Monica: Everyone gives you special treatment because you're on your honeymoon! The first class tickets, the honeymoon suite! No one cares that we're on our honeymoon!
      Woman: You can have the suite if you want. We don't need the stuff.
      Man: We just wanna be together and celebrate our love for each other.
      Chandler: Aww. We really need the stuff.

    • Joey: Monica and Chandler are married. Ross and Rachel are having a baby. Maybe you and I should do something. Phoebe: All in good time, my love. All in good time.

    • (Deleted Scene) Chandler: (In the airport security holding room) Look, this is ridiculous. I was just making a joke. I mean, I know the sign says "No jokes about bombs" but shouldn't the sign really say "No bombs?!" I mean, isn't that the guy we really have to worry about here, the guy with the bombs? Not the guy who jokes about his bombs. Not that I have bombs, but if I did, I probably wouldn't joke about them. I'd probably want to keep that rather quiet!... I'm sorry. You had some questions for me? Security Guard: Miss, what is your association with this man? Monica: Uh, he's my husband. Security Guard: I see. Monica: Oh, but, but, but only for a few days. I mean, I don't know what he does when he's outside the house. Chandler: Thank you darling. (To the guards) you see, this is the first time we're traveling my way, so it's very important that we make this flight. See, it's one of those her plan versus my plan kind of thing. Security Guard: What do you mean by plan? Chandler: You really should just ask me yes or no questions.

    • (Deleted Scene) Chandler: Compromise works. Monica: My name is Mrs. Bing. Haven't I compromised enough?

    • Dr. Long: Am I interrupting? Rachel: Oh no Dr. Long, please come in. This is Ross, he is the father. Ross: But not the husband, because evidently she can do this alone.

    Notes (7)

    • The door that the fireman breaks down is just a prop. If the original door had been used for that scene, the iconic picture frame around the interior peephole would have been destroyed by the fireman's axe. In the following episode, "The One with the Videotape", you can see that it's true -- even the interior door paint matches perfectly with the walls, something that would be impossible with a newly-painted door.

    • International Episode Title: France: Celui qui d√©couvrait sa paternit√© (The One Who Finds Out His Fatherhood)

    • This is the first appearance of Amanda Carlin as Dr. Long. Dr. Long was in 5 episodes of Friends.

    • This is the final appearance of Michael G. Hagerty as Mr. Treeger. Mr. Treeger was in 5 episodes of Friends.

    • This episode was cited in a 2003 study about teenage condom use by the RAND Corporation. According to the study, 65% of teenagers who saw this episode recalled that a condom failure can cause pregnancy. Those who watched the episode with an adult were twice as likely to recall that condoms were more than 95% effective.

    • When Rachel runs out of Ross' apartment when he is on the phone with the condom company, she grabs her purse but forgets her magazine.

    • Continuity: Joey and Phoebe complain about the fact that Monica and Chandler took away their keys. However, in the series finale the all six friends give their keys back.

    • Continuity: Ross says he'll be there for everything, including helping out when baby-proofing the apartment. However, in "The One with the Boob Job" Rachel baby-proofs the apartment herself. (Although she calls a handyman, not Ross, to help eventually.)

    • Goof: When Joey calls Monica and Chandler on their honeymoon, the water bottle on the table keeps moving in between shots. Also, the bowl on the table keeps changing from empty to full.

    • Goof: After Rachel tells Ross she is pregnant and there is no pressure on him, Ross's hand goes from on his chin to in his lap between shots.
