    When we found out rachel was pregnant, who did you think the father was?? Did you have any idea it was Ross? Or maybe Tag? or someone totally new?

    i immediatly thought Tag, only because as far as we knew, he was the last person he Rachel had been with. I thought it would be cool if it was Ross.

    First I didn't have any idea, I thought it could be just a random person and that he wouldn't be significant to the storyline (Rachel would raise the child alone with the help of her friends). However, after Rachel was so secretive about it and when she said that she has to tell the father first and all that, I started to suspect that it would be Ross (and of course I hoped all along that it would be Ross).

    At first I thought it was just false alarm and she is not pregnant at all and when they found the red sweeter I thought ohh it's Tag and I didn't like it... I was so glad that it was Ross but he wasn't the first one on my mind, Tag was...

    I had no idea. I was as shocked as Joey, Phoebe, Monica and Chandler were.

    I know, me too! When Ross picked up the sweater at the end of TOW the Red Sweater, I said "Oh my God!" like they did.

    I don't exactly remember what my reaction was but it was probably similar to that. When I first saw that episode, I hadn't seen many episodes of Friends so I really had no idea what to expect. I think I thought it was just some random guy Rachel slept with. Maybe if I had seen more episodes of Friends, I might have cosidered Ross.

    I did that too, even if I was suspecting that it was him.

    I had no idea! I was too wrapped up in the shock of her being pregnant that I didn't even think about it until it was brought up as an issue in the following season. THen I thought it was Ross! !

    I definatley had no idea, I thought Ross was too obvious so I thought it was someone from her past eg. Mark or Joshua. I was wrong!!!

    I'm glad it was Ross though.

    There is actually a scene in The One after 'i do' which kind of gives away the "who is the father" question. When Ross is sitting at the kids table, you can see Rachel in the background and she is looking at him during the whole scene. I never noticed it the first time i watched but i did when ive watched it over and over. It also explains why a couple of episodes later Ross goes "that's why she kept looking at me during the wedding".

    I've never noticed that before (had to watch the ep immediately and I saw it now)! I don't think many people who watch the episode for the first time would get that.

    I actually didn't figure out that it really was Rachel until the wedding when it was revealed. But I agree with you that it was more interesting to have Rachel pregnant and Ross as the father.
