Camp Cucamonga

Hi, it is me again Melanie. This is my Second fic. I was bored so I started writing this. I donít of these characters this is for fun. I want to thank everyone who has helped me especially, David. I really appreciate it a lot. This fic takes place when the gang is in high school. Ross, Chandler, Phoebe, and Joey are seniors and Rachel and Monica are juniors. It is three weeks until school starts again, for them, and they are going to the annual school camping trip. Ross makes a very huge mistake. Rachel is having trouble finding what she wants until she looks on to a certain friend, causing herself more pain. Chandler and Joey are trying to pull the biggest camp prank. Monica is going hot for guys and Phoebe is just trying to make it through camp with all her insane friends. Oh, this is mainly Ross and Rachel. Oh these characters do not belong to me but to BKC.

Mon: Dad if you want a good seat you have to be there before. So come on.
(She runs out of the kitchen and goes to the bottom of the steps)

[We go inside and see a calendar it reads August 6. Then we see a sound asleep Rachel.
Then we hear a bang and we see a middle age woman storm in and pull the sheets off Rachel.
She wakes up with a start.]
Sandra: Rachel...Rachel
Rachel: What...what...what?
(She starts going back to sleep)
San: Rachel Karen Greene if you don't remember correctly, but is it not the day that you are suppose to be heading off to camp.
(Rachel bolts out of bed running around throwing clothes and things everywhere.)
Rach: Oh my god mom why didn't you tell me?

Then she gets to her bathroom, wipes her arm over the counter wiping all of her cosmetics, and soaps in a bag. Then she goes to her shoes and starts throwing them in a bag. She does that with a lot more things until she is packed)
Rach: Mom I am done let's go!!!
(Her mom walks her with her sisters and they see her room is basically spotless.)
San: Ok.

[Lincoln High School]
(We see about five buses with loads off people. People are running everywhere trying to get stuff loaded and trying to get on the buses. It is total chaos. Then we see Rachel getting on one of the buses)

[The bus]
(She is in a very crowded bus and she spots Monica.)
Mon: Hey Rach. I saved you a seat.
Rach: Thanks Mon.
(She goes and sits down)
Rach: Wow! This place is so crowded. I could hardly fit my stuff in the wagons.
Mon: That is because you are so late. What happened?
Rach: I forgot camp was today and slept in and I was not even packed, so my stuff is all a mess because I just threw everything in different bags.
Mon: That is why I told you to pack a week ago, but no you never listen to me.
Rach: blah, blah, blah ok donít lecture me.
Mon: Whatever.
Rach: So where is everybody?
Mon: They are on the bus somewhere. They probably can't move.
Rach: Did everyone come?
Mon: Yeah.
Rach: Even Ross.
Mon: Yeah. He just got back from Los Angeles yesterday, but he said he wanted to come. But oh my god you are not going to recognize him when you see him. He does not look like himself anymore.
Rach: What do you mean?
Mon: He is totally changed, he has a tan, he is built, and he colored his hair. Trust me if he was not my brother.
Rach: Whoa there Monica. If he is that changed I have got to see it.
Mon: Trust me you won't realize it is him.
Rach: Ok Mon.

[Scene: Camp Cucamonga]
(All the kids are getting off the buses and getting their luggage. Rachel and Monica already have theirs, though Rachel is having a hard time keeping balanced, so she is wobbling)
Mon: You all right there sweetie?

Mon: (laughs) you look so funny.
Rach: Thank-you. You are a wonderful friend.
(Monica and Rachel go on looking for the rest of there gang)
Mon: Oh, oh there they are come on Rach.
(Monica goes running after them leaving Rachel with her luggage. Rachel is dragging her luggage along trying to catch Monica until she feelings something pulling her luggage back)
Rach: What the.........(she looks up)

Rach: Is he seeing anyone, you know like does he have a girlfriend?
Mon: Nope, but the girls are all over him.
Rach: Oh.
Mon: Even though is cute now he is still Ross.
Rach: Hey come on now, he was cute before he left. He was that puppy dog cute.
Mon: Whatever. So you spot any cuties you like?
Rach: No, not really.

Rach: No Mon I justÖI donít know.
Mon: Yeah. Whatever letís just unpack so we can go have some fun.
Rach: Ok.

[Scene: Outside on some bleachers]
(We see Ross and two other guys hanging out and talking)
Guy1 (Matt): Ross it is great that you are going to join the football team; you have totally changed my man.
Guy2 (Brett): Yeah man.
Ross: I guess.
Matt: Well the ladies seem to like you.
Ross: Yeah that is better; I think I can get just any girl now.
Brett: What! Man I doubt that.
Ross: Bet I can, just name one, and I will have them as my girlfriend by the dance and take them.
Matt: Ok. Letís see who is tough to get. (Thinks)
Brett: Oh, Rachel Greene.
Matt: Yeah she is a toughie.
Ross: Sure this will be simple. I have got an advantage. But what do I get if I win?
Brett: Ok you can have my spot as team captain and Matt and I will jump in the lake naked.
Ross: Excellent!
Matt: But, if you loose you have to wear nothing but a thong all day and give 50 bucks.
Ross: The bet is on.
(They shake hands)

[Camp Cafeteria]
(All of the gang plus three guys and two girls we do not know are sitting at a table and talking just having supper. Ross is sitting by Rachel who is next to Monica)
Ross: So Rach how have things been? I mean we have not talked in a while.
Rach: There great just been hanging here and there you know.
Mon: (to Ross) Why do you care?
Ross: Cause she is my friend and I am interested on how her summer has been.
(Monica mocks him)
Ross: Anyway I was wondering if you wanted to go for a walk?
Rach: (surprised) Who me?
Ross: Yes you. Come on.
Rach: Ok I guess.
(They get up and leave)
Mon: Hey you guys want to go canoeing before it gets to dark?
All: yeah/sure/that sounds fun/etc.
Mon: (she looks at Chandler and Joey) Are you all coming?
Joey: No we are just going to hang out, catch some girls, you know.
Mon: Ok. Bye.

[Scene: Camp grounds]
(Ross and Rachel are walking and talking)
Rach: So why did you decide to go to LA?
Ross: I just wanted to go and have so fun without being known or made fun of.
Rach: Oh. So did you have fun?
Ross: Yeah there is a lot of sun out there as you can tell. I don't know I guess I made myself realize I am not a total loser and I started working out and going to the beach alot and hanging out at parties I was not even invited to.
Rach: (laughs) Sounds fun.
Ross: Yeah the girls even liked me there, before I changed.
Rach: I liked you then too.
Ross: They liked me in a different way. You liked me as a friend, but hey liked me as a guy. (Silence) SoÖ you have anyone special in you life.
Rach: No. Everything is so superficial, it's fake. Guys are just sick now. They only want you for stupid reasons. No not because they like you no, they want you to sleep with them so they can brag to their friends or so they can get to one of your friends, and the girls I mean they are as bad as the guys. They jump all over the Jocks just to be known, and practically kill themselves to be Miss Popularity.
Ross: Wow, did something happen while I was gone, did I miss something.
Rach: What?
Ross: Miss Queen of Popularity speaks. What happened to you? You have changed, you are the Queen of popularity. You rode on the quarterbacks motorcycle, you had his letterman's jacket, you are the head cheerleader, and you can get anything. Why the sudden change.
Rach: Because it is all fake. The guys the girls, it's not real, I want something real, I meanÖ Don't you?
Ross: Yeah, I guess.
(They are walking to the lake. She sees the water and starts running to it. He just watches her and smiles)
Rach: Come on in itís fun.
Ross: No-no-no I want to stay dry.
Rach: Ok.
(He walks over and sits on some upside-down canoe)
Ross: So you mean to tell me you are going to give up all that stuff.
Rach: (looks up from the water) What stuff?
Ross: (Watching her every move) You know Miss Popularity.
Rach: Believe me it is not something you can just give away.
Ross: Yes it is. I gained it, but I could easily give it up. All I would have to do is go to Alaska and eat all the time. All that stuff is just an image.
Rach: (goes up to him out of the water) Oh so now I am just an image to everyone.
Ross: No that is not what I mean.
Rach: (kinda upset) Yes it is. You think I am some pompom-wearing-rich girl-with a pretty face. Is that my image?
Ross: (smiles at her) No. Look now you are upset.
Rach: (mad) I have a right to be.
Ross: (laughs) No you donít.
Rach: Oh so this is just a big joke to you. Urgh you know what I am going to find the guys. (Walks away)
Ross: Rach!

[Scene: The dock at the other side of the lake]
(The gang is there except Ross and Joey)
Chan: Rach where did you leave Ross?
Rach: I donít know we were talking and he is just being rude so I got angry and left.
Chan: (sarcastic) Oh I see.
Mon: So what were you guys talking about?
Rach: Just our summers.
Phoe: How can you get in an argument talking about summer?
Rach: (upset) It was nothing ok, we just had a disagreement.
Mon: Ok.
(A camp counselor comes to them)
CC: All right you guys time to head to your cabins.
The kids: awwwwwww
CC: (faking tears) Yeah I know, so sad.
Chan: Well I guess I should be heading out I got a long walk and I am going to get tired.
Phoe: Yeah I got to get to my cabin. Nighty night.
(They leave)
Mon: Well we better go to.
Rach: Mon?
Mon: Yeah? (Turns around to see Rachel with her arms out)
Rach: Carry me?
Mon: You have got to be joking cause I am not.
Rach: Awww come on Mon.
Mon: No.
Rach: Mon?
Mon: No.
Rach: Monni?!
Mon: Rach I said no, and donít call me that.
(They go back to their cabin with Rachel chasing Monica)

[Scene: Mon and Rachís Cabin]
(They share their cabin with three other girls: Shannon, Alicia, and Mandy. They are all changing into their pjís. Monica is wearing a purple tank with yellow and purple pants. Rachel is wearing a blue tank with white Tommy Hilfiger boxers. They get into their beds Monica is on bottom Rachel on top.)
Mon: (in a whisper so only Rachel can hear) Rach?
Rach: (whispering too) What?
Mon: You sleep.
Rach: No.
Mon: Good. (Pauses) Anyway, What was up with you and Ross and why did he want to talk to you?
Rach: Because like he said I am his friend and he just wanted to know how I was.
Mon: Why? When did you two become so chummy?
Rach: It was before he left, I was waiting for you before the Janet Jackson concert and we started talking and he was really sweet and we just talked.
Mon: You guys have talked before. You act like you never knew him. We grew up together.
Rach: I know we just never had those serious get-to-know-each-other talks before. He never really talked to me since he went to the ninth grade.
Mon: Oh. So what did you guys talk about that made you so mad?
Rach: Nothing. Once I think about it, itís stupid really.
Mon: Ok. Just wanted to know. Goodnight.
Rach: Night.
Time Lapse.
(The girls are waking up to the sound of a horn. The other three girls get up but Monica and Rachel stay in bed.)
Time Lapse.
(It is about two hours later it is only Monica and Rachel in the cabin still sleeping. Until a very loud Phoebe comes in yelling)
Pho: Wake Up!!!! Wake Up You sleepy heads!!!!
(Monica groans and Rachel bolts out of her sleep, and they stare at Phoebe)
Pho: Welcome to the first morning of camp. You have already missed breakfast but I saved you guys an apple and some pop tarts.
Mon: (While getting out of bed) (sarcastically) Why thank-you Pheebs you shouldnít have.
Rach: (still in bed) Yeah shouldnít have woke me up! (Turns away from them putting her pillow on her head)
Pho: Wow! You are not a morning person.
Mon: No she is not.
(Monica starts getting dressed. There is a knock at the cabin door.)
Pho: Who is it?
Ross: It is Ross, is Rach up, I need to talk to her.
Pho: Uh hold on. (Goes and shakes Rachel awake) Rach, Ross is here he wants to talk to you.
Rach: (half sleep) What?
Pho: Never mind. (She goes to the door) Ross, she is sleep and she isnít gone wake up.
Ross: Ok I will try to get her later. Bye.
Pho: Yeah bye. (Pauses) I wonder what he wants.
(Monica comes out of the bathroom all dressed and ready. She is wearing a red shirt with khaki Capriís, and she sees Rachel is still in the bed.)
Mon: Oh no missy you are getting up. (She starts shaking Rachel, but she wonít move.) Ok then two can play at this game. (She takes Rachelís pillow and starts hitting her with it. Rachel again bolts awake.)
Rach: What? (Sees Monica with her pillow) What are you doing, are you crazy?!
Mon: (smiles) No, now get up.
Rach: (groans) Alright. (She goes into the bathroom. About and hour later she comes out in a sky blue tank and white flare jeans. She sees Monica eating)
Rach: Ok I am done. Where are we going?
Mon: (looks up at Rachel) Finally! Phoebe already left we are going to go play football with the guys.
(Rachel shoots her a look)
Mon: Ok, ok we are going to go watch the guys play football.
(Rachel smiles at her)
(As they are leaving)
Mon: You know I could whoop all their Asses.
(Rachel rolls her eyes.)

[Scene: A field]
(There are a bunch of guys playing football and even some girls. We see a set of bleachers where a bunch of girls are. We see Phoebe, Monica and Rachel and some other girls talking)
Girl 1(Sandy): Oh there are so many cuties here this year.
Girl 2(Shannon): Oh I know, I mean there are so many to choose from.

Shan: Oh come on Monica that is because he is your brother.
San: Yeah cause he is hot, now. What did he do all summer?
Mon: He went to Los Angeles.
Ali: Maybe I need to go there and check out the guys cause if they look anything like he does, wow.
Mon: Eh, I guess.
Ali: (to Rachel) What about you Miss Quiet.
Rach: (coming out of a daze) Uh?
Shan: What is up with you Rach, you seem out of it.
Mon: Something is wrong with her donít mind it.
Rach: (looks at Monica) Nothing is wrong with me. I am fine.
Mon: Ok we are sorry, we are going to back off now. I think I am going to go play with the guys.
Rach: Monica no, you have to stop trying to be one of the guys.
Mon: No I donít. Come on you guys want to play.
Ali: Sure it would be something different.
Mon: Yeah all you have to do is stand in the field and you can even flirt with the guys.
Shan: Ok we will play.
Mon: Rach, you coming?
Rach: No, I think I am going to stay here and just watch.
Mon: Ok. Bye.
(They leave and Rachel is just sitting on the bleachers. Someone comes out from behind her. Yep is it Ross)
Ross: Hey.
(She looks and sees him then looks back at the field)
Rach: Hello.
Ross: Listen about last night I am sorry, ok. I wasnít calling you an image. I just meant people put you as an image and you canít replace that image unless you do something they donít like and it seems people always like what ever you do. Ok, I donít think you are some pretty-faced-rich-girl. I think you are a gorgeous-faced-rich-girl.
Rach: (laughs and looks at him) Thanks that makes it better. But also I am sorry too, I was being really bitchy to you.
Ross: Itís ok.
Rach: So why arenít you playing football.
Ross: I was but it got boring really fast. The guys were fighting so I left.
Rach: Oh.
Ross: So where are the other girls.
(She points to the field)
Ross: Oh. Why arenít you with them?
(She gives him this look)
Ross: Ok donít answer that. Well since we are just sitting here maybe we could go do something.
Rach: Like what?
Ross: Letís go paint.
Rach: What?
Ross: Yeah come on it will be fun.
(Takes her hand and drags her off the paint)

[Scene: An abandoned shed]
(We see inside buckets of paint, sheets, and other tools. We then see a table and two guys. Yep Joey and Chandler)
Chan: Come on Joey think. This has got to be the best prank ever. What could we do?
Joey: We could steal all the girlsí clothes.
Chan: It has been done.
Joey: We could paint the field.
Chan: Joey come on think big. I want something no one will forget.
Joey: We could go set traps in every cabin.
Chan: Yes excellent. We will do it on the camping trip. We can scary everyone.
Joey: How?
Chan: Oh just a few diversions here and there.
Joey: Already!

[Scene: A pavilion]
(Ross and Rachel are set a one of the picnic tables painting)
Ross: What do you think of my painting? (Hold up what looks like a turtle on top of a giant bird)
Rach: (Looking at it weird) What is it suppose to be?
Ross: Tyrannosaurus rex.
Rach: (Laughs) Really? It looks like a turtle on top of a giant bird.
Ross: (looks at it sad)
Rach: Oh. Sorry.
Ross: (smiles at her) So let me see yours.
Rach: Ok. (She so him a picture of a clouds)
Ross: (sarcastically) Wow what beautiful clouds.
Rach: Hey at least they are better then you turtle-bird. (Laughs)
Ross: (sarcastic) Oh so funny (takes his paintbrush and wipes it across her forehead.
Rach: Hey!
(She takes her paintbrush and wipes it across his face. He grabs it from her and throws it. Then he takes some paint in his hands and hurls it at her. She turns this red color and starts grabbing paint and throwing it at him until it turns into a paint war.)
(Later: Ross and Rachel are washing themselves with a hoe on the side of the pavilion.)
Rach: I canít believe what you did to me this was a very expensive shirt.
Ross: (sarcastic) I am so sorry about that. (Laughs)
Rach: Yeah right.
Ross: But come on it was fun.
Rach: No it wasnít. I was far from fun. Being painted is not my definition of fun.
Ross: (smiles) You know it was fun you just canít admit it.
Rach: (smiles) Ok it was a little fun.
Ross: Yeah it was!
Rach: (Rolls her eyes)
Ross: We better hurry up because opening day celebration is going to start at 6 and it is 5:30.
Rach: Ok.
(The go on cleaning themselves while talking)

[Scene: Mon and Rachís cabin]
(Monica and Phoebe are there just getting ready to leave)
Mon: I wonder were Rach went I feel bad for leaving herÖyou know.
Pho: Yeah.
Mon: Maybe she went off with some other girls.
Pho: Yeah. She is a big girl she will find her way back to us.
Mon: Yeah letís go.
(They are about to walk out when they see Rachel and Ross walking toward the cabin.)
Pho: I wonder why she is with him.
Mon: Yeah I would like to know too. Quick hide.
(They hide. Monica goes on the other side of the other set of bunk beds and Phoebe hides in one of the closets.)
(Ross and Rachel walk in talking)
Rach: Ross I just need to get changed and then we can go, so will you wait for me.
Ross: Ok, but I am only giving you five minutes.
Rach: Ok (smiles at him) thanks.
(She goes into the bathroom and he sits on one of the beds. They are still talking)
Rach: (o.s.) Do you think it is going to be cold?
Ross: No.
Rach: (o.s.) Ok. By the way thanks for being with me today.
Ross: No problem. Besides, who wouldnít want to spend the day with you?
(Cuts to Rachel in the bathroom smiling in the mirror)
(Cuts back to Ross He looks around at what the girls have in their room. He stands up and puts his hand on the bedpost to lean, and he feels something on his hand, which is a bra. He looks at his hand and sees it. He panics. Monica and Phoebe see it all and are trying hard not to laugh. Ross throws it off and it lands right at Rachelís feet as she is walking out of the bathroom. He gets this scared face, she does not see the bra and walks right over it. Ross sighs in relief.)
Rach: I am ready.
Ross: Ok letísÖletís go.
(They walk out. Monica and Phoebe come from their hiding places)
Pho: (Laughing) Did you see Ross?
Mon: (laughs) Yeah. (Turns serious) I wonder what is going on with those two.
Pho: Maybe they are plotting something mischievous to do to us.
Mon: Yeah right. Letís just go, I will see what they are up to later.
(They leave also)

Phoebe is hiding under a bench, Monica and Rachel are barely hiding, but think they have the best spots and Chandler and Ross are hiding behind trees. Joey is it, what are the oddsJ, we go over to Monica and Rachel)
Mon: I wish he would hurry up it is 2 oíclock. He has been it for an hour and a half.
Rach: I know I can barely keep my eyes open.
Mon: (Yells loud) Joey you donít have to count to a hundred just come on.
(Rachel starts laughing. Then Joey stops counting and comes after everyone. (Author: This now is going to be in slow motion) He is chancing people, but they all get to base. Now it is only the gang left to catch. Joey spots Phoebe and sees she running toward base he goes after her, but she keeps running in circles and he gets tired. Then he sees Monica and Rachel making a break for it, so he goes after them. Monica screams when she realizes he is chasing her and grabs Rachelís hand and pulls her so they can both make it to base, but as they are running Joey trips over a tree branch and they make it to base.
Ross and Chandler are the last two so they decide to split up. Ross runs out first and Joey spots him so he gets off the ground and starts going for him, then Chandler comes out and Joey sees him so he starts to get confused and goes after Chandler since he is slower. But then Ross as Joey is running for Chandler comes over and sticks his foot out and trips him so Ross and Chandler run to base, and everyone congratulates them. Joey still on the ground starts crying cause he is itÖAGAIN.)
(This is in slow motion also) Now it is 3 oíclock and they are playing freeze tag. There are lots of people stuck in different positions it looks really funny. Monica is frozen and Ross comes along and tags her and she gets up and starts running to find people to unfreeze. Joey is running from Rachel. Rachel is running from Chandler, who is it. Phoebe is going along untagging people. Joey is running and he falls and then Rachel comes colliding into him falling on him. Chandler sees them down and goes after them he tags them both and they are frozen on top of each other. Chandler starts laughing and goes on chasing people. Ross sees Rachel and Joey and goes unfreeze Rachel and pulls her along with him leaving Joey in a funny position on the ground. Monica comes along and unfreezes Joey and the run some more.)

Brett: About three years ago {1997} there was a group of college kids{Jenna,Donald,Eric,& Amber} going on a camping trip. Eric's parents owned a log cabin off in the woods about 8 miles from town. Since there was nothing except woods around that area, they thought it would be a good idea to stay a weekend there. Come Friday they all packed up and started for there weekend of bliss. When they got to the cabin they sat down and started to plan what they were going to do that weekend. It was already late and starting to get dark so they decided to talk about it in the morning. Eric and Donald went out to get firewood so they wouldn't freeze that night. When they got back Jenna and Amber swore that they heard something moving around in the attic. Eric said that it was probably a rat, and there was nothing to be scared about. They agreed and went to bed. That night Jenna started hearing the same sounds as earlier. (The gang looks kinda supious) Since Eric and Donald's room was on the other side of the cabin, she woke Amber and told her to sit up with her for while. After about five minutes the sound came back. It sounded like something big moving in the attic. They both jumped up and ran into the boys room. Donald told them that there just hearing things. Jenna demanded to sleep with them. so they did. The next morning they were woke by a police officer at the front door. The police officer told them that there was a search warrant out for an escaped convict from an insane asylum near by. He told them not to worry but to be careful and stick together. That night around a campfire, Donald started telling scary stories. The girls immediately became frightened, and begged him to quit. The boys took their fright to advantage and started cuddling up with the girls. They decided to go inside and immediately they were killed.
Chan: Amateur.
Pho: Ok well it is late so I going to our cabin.
Mon: Wait where are Ross and Rachel?
(Everyone turns around to find no Ross or Rachel.)
Joey: Hey lets go find them and scare them.
Chan: Yeah they are probably trying to scare us lets get them first.
(They all go off looking for Ross and Rachel. A little ways into the woods they find them making out on a tree trunk, and Joey screams. Ross and Rachel break startled and see the gang. Everyone is shock except Monica)
Pho: Oh my gosh!
Chan: Whoa!
Joey: What is going on here?
Rach: Oh well might as well tell them.
Ross: Ok Rach and I are going out. We are a couple and have been one since Friday.
(Ross sees Brett looking at him remembering the bet and smiles)
Mon: I already knew.
Pho: What?! Rachel?
Rach: She saw us kiss I had to tell her.
Pho: Right.
Ross: Ok now that everyone knows can you please go away?
All: Yeah/sure/whatever/Score!
(They leave and Ross and Rachel go back to making out)

People are crashing into other peopleís tents and knocking them down.)
(Time Lapse)
(Everyone is cleaning up and packing what is left of their things Joey and Chandler are spotless and are the first ones ready. The counselor notices this and questions them Joey cracks and she leads them off to the directorís office. The whole camp is mad at them)

[Scene: The walk back to camp]
(All the gang is together except Chandler, Joey, and Ross who is with Matt)
Ross: So man Looks like I won this bet. I get the girl and all that other stuff.
Matt: Man half the bet you have won but no all of it. You still have to take her to the dance.
Ross: Well whatever I am still going to win, I mean she is my girlfriend. I like her too. I liked her since 9th grade.
Matt: I thought you were never going to get her.
Ross: Thought wrong Mattie my man, cause I got already got the girl, and now I am going to be captain of the football team and I get to watch you guys humiliate yourselves in front of the entire camp.
Matt: Whatever.
Ross: I got to go catch up with the guys see you.
(He walks back to the girls. But there was this girl behind him watching him suspicious)
(Time Lapse Ė Back at Camp)

[Scene: Back at camp]
(Monica and Phoebe are sitting in Monicaís cabin when a girl runs in)
Girl: Hey guys this is urgent!
Mon: What is wrong Shannon?

Shan: Well Debbie from your cabin Phoebe told me that Jessie Garden told her that she over heard Ross and Matt Frawlings talking.
Mon: Yeah.
Shan: And she said that they were talking about a bet.
Pho: What was the bet?
Shan: Well Ross made a bet with Matt saying he could get any girl since he has changed and all.
Mon: Yeah soÖ
Shan: So Matt said Rachel and if Ross wins the bet he gets Mattís spot as captain of the football team and Matt and Brett have to jump in the lake naked.
Pho: So you mean Ross is just using Rachel. That is not like him.
Mon: Maybe all this attention was not good for him. (Pauses) Wait a minute did you say Matt and Brett?
Shan: Yeah.
Mon: What does Brett have to do with anything?
Shan: Apparently he is apart of the bet also.
Pho: Oh no.
Shan: But the bet is not over Ross still has to take Rachel to the dance.
Mon: (very upset not only for Brett but at Ross) I cannot believe Ross would do that. Rachel actually likes him a lot.

Mon: I am going to kill Brett then Ross.
Shan: It is sad.
Mon: I donít want to tell Rach. She has been heartbroken like all year her parents split up her boyfriend broke up with her before school prom to go with her other friend.

Rach: Why did you never tell me?
Ross: Because I thought you only liked Jocks and stuff.
Rach: Well ok I know I was superficial for a while but as this year was ending I realized it was all fake. You didnít notice I was nicer.
Ross: Well I just left you alone cause the other years you never wanted to be bothered with me.]
Rach: Awww I am sorry. (Turns around and hugs him) If it makes it any better I started liking you before you left.

(He leaves. Rachel falls on one of the beds. Monica looks worried.)
Mon: Ok. Rach?
(She sits up)
Rach: Yes Mon?
Mon: I need to tell you something. You are going to want to sit down.
Rach: Mon I am sitting down.
Mon: Oh well then ok. (to herself) Breathe Mon breath.
Rach: What Mon. Oh Ross told me he loves me. Isnít that great. (Hugs her)
Mon: (feeling sorry for her) Yeah. Great.
Rach: (breaking the hug) Oh what is wrong Mon? Is it Brett?
Mon: No. Well yes but not only him.
Rach: What?
Mon: Ok listen Shannon told me that Debbie told her that Jessie Garden told her that she overheard Ross talking to Matt and she said that they said that Ross bet with Matt that he could get any girl since he has changed and all, and so Matt bet him that he couldnít get you. (Rachel starts getting teary eyed and so does Monica) So if Ross gets you, which he already did and takes you to the dance, he wins. He gets to be football team captain and Matt and Brett have to jump in the lake naked.
Rach: (crying softly) What?
Mon: I know.
Rach: I donít believe this. Ross would never do that.
Mon: I thought that to butÖ
Rach: (crying still) Oh my god. He (starts hyperventilating) thatÖthat jerk!
Mon: Rachel calm down.
Rach: (very angry) No! He I told him I loved him. I told him he was the best boyfriend ever. He lied.
(She stands up and storms out of the cabin running. Monica follows her)

[Scene: Cafeteria]
(All the guys are there including Joey and Chandler they are on probation. Phoebe is there too. Rachel all of a
Sudden comes in and goes over to them follow by Monica.)
Ross: Sweetie.
Rach: You jerk. (She takes his tray of food, which is hot spaghetti and pours it into his lap and does the same to Brett and Matt. She turns and starts to leave. Ross gets up and follows her and grabs her just before he reaches the door.)
Ross: Rach!
(She turns around and slaps him hard in the face he lets go and grabs his face bending a little. BTW all eyes and ears are on them)
Rach: (really loud) I was a Bet! (Hits him as she says this) I was a stupid bet! God Ross!
(She leaves the cafeteria and he follows her and Monica follows him. He catches her they are outside)
Ross: Rachel come on.
Rach: No! Ross you lied to me! I mean how could you! You-I I poured my heart out to you! I told you about all the horrible boyfriends! I told you I loved you! Yet you still do this. You played along with it! I trusted you!
Ross: I know Rach I love you. I liked you before all this.
Rach: Then why did you do it!
Ross: I t was a stupid mistake.
Rach: How can you make that kind of mistake when you care about a person!
Ross: Rach it was stupid I wasnít thinking.
Rach: No! You were thinking you were thinking about being captain. You were picking up that jock ego thing. I canít believe you! I canít believe I fell for this. I canít believe you would do something so mean and hurtful. (Starts crying)
Ross: Rach I wouldnít do anything to hurt you.
Rach: Oh then why didnít you break the bet if you liked me?
Ross: I donít know.
Rach: Yes you do. Itís because you wanted to be one of them. They are stupid arrogant pigs, and you are too. I hate you Ross.
Ross: No Rach! I am sorry. I was stupid to do it. I wasnít thinking. Rach I really love you.
Rach: No you donít you are just like all the rest of them. The sad thing is this has not only ruined our relationship, but I donít think I can be your friend after this.
Ross: Rach come on please?
Rach: No Ross.
(She runs to her cabin leaving Ross there. Monica comes behind him and slaps him across the head and kicks him)
Mon: You are a jerk, and I am sorry to say you are my brother.
Ross: Mon tell her I am so sorry please.
Mon: (softly) I will.
(Back at Rachelís cabin she is crying her eyes out on Monicaís bed. Monica comes in and rubs her back)
Mon: He said he was sorry.
Rach: (softly) I know.
Mon: You should go to sleep.
Rach: Ok.
Mon: Night.
(She leaves)

[Scene: The bleachers]
(Monica is there with Brett)
Mon: I donít think we should be together anymore.
Brett: Why?
Mon: Because of what you did. You guys hurt Rachel she has been through a lot.
