the kiss or about their feelings. She knows she loves him but doesnít think
he feels the same. Monica has told her ďStop being a wuss and just do it!!!Ē
Yet, she hasnít.

Ross::walks in:: Hey Rach

::someone knocks at the door::

Ross::gets up and gets it, its Rachel:: hey whatís up?
Rach:: Monica told me.....
Ross:: what did she tell you??
Rach:: about the job?
Ross:: oh
Rach:: are you going to take it??
Ross:: I donít know
Rach:: donít, please donít...
Ross:: why?
Rach:: cause, we wont see you every day, and that would be so hard!
Ross:: Yea I know, I cant imagine not seeing you everyday......
