This is a definite tear-jerker. This is classic friends, but with a softness around the edges. I may even be so bold as to say this is the
'beginning' of MOnica & Chandler's attraction to each other. She keeps getting choked up when she sees women walking with their tiny babies. So he promises that when they are both 40, if neither are married, he will propose to her and they will start a family. Also, when she calls her mother, she gets choked up again at the sight of another baby. Chandler takes the phone from her. Nothing romantic, but the seeds have been planted in this episode for their romance to blossom in future seasons. Even Joey is soft as he helps a single mother give birth. We get to see a side to his character that is rarely shown and it is very sweet.
