Episode Summary

EDIT

This is the one where it all began... Rachel leaves Barry at the altar, meets the gang, and moves in with Monica. Monica, meanwhile, sleeps with Paul the Wine Guy. Ross is reeling from his divorce from Carol who has come out as a lesbian. The guys help Ross assemble new furniture for his now almost empty apartment while discussing his romantic future as a single guy. Ross reveals to Rachel something she apparently already knew, namely that he had a crush on her in high school.
