  • Quotes

    • Monica (about Emily's message): What if Ross hears that and calls her back and they get back together? I mean, is that what you want? Ross back with that controlling neurotic, crazy, Emily? The Emily that wouldn't let him see you?
      Rachel (gasps): Noooo. Oh, no, no. God, no! He should not get back together with her. I mean, I know that, you know that. Even Ross knows that. But that still doesn't give us the right to erase his message.
      Monica: Look, I'm his sister and I love him. I don't want to see him get hurt. I mean, doesn't that give me the right to control hi... (checks herself) ...Help him?
      Rachel: I don't think he's the one who needs help.
      Monica: Okay, look, she's obviously unstable. I mean, she's thinking about running out on her wedding day. (Rachel gives her a look) Okay, fine. But look at the position she's putting him in. And what's he gonna do? Like Ross is gonna run over there on the wedding day and break up the marriage? Who would do that? (Rachel gives her another look) Okay, fine. But, you know, that's different. (reflecting) Although it did involve a lot of the same people.
