Monica:Geez Rach, you look like hell.

 

Rachel:I am so tired.I could fall asleep right here on this couch.

 

Joey:Hot sex last night Rach?

 

Rachel:Iím four months pregnant Joey, the only hot sex Ross is having is with himself.

 

Joey:Hate to be you man.

 

Ross:I donít want to be me either.

 

Monica:You guys canít have sex anymore?

 

Ross:Apparently not.

 

Rachel:Itís too difficult and uncomfortable.

 

Joey:So get creative, do it in the butt.

 

Monica:Joey!

 

Joey:What?Itís the next best thing.

 

Monica:For Ross.

 

Rachel:Yeah, I donít think so, that area is a one-way only zone, and thatís outward.

 

Joey:You donít know what youíre missing.(Ross, Rachel and Monica look dumbfoundedly at Joey).Wait a minute, that didnít come out right.

OPENING CREDITS

 

JOEYíS APARTMENT (Joey and Rachel are present)

 

Joey:You know, we never hang out like we used to.

 

Rachel:Joey, you and Iíve never really hung out.

 

Joey:Sure we have.Donít you remember the time when I moved in?You offered me lemonade and I thought you meant something else.I took off my clothes only to learn that you just wanted to give me some lemonade.

 

Rachel:Joey, that was Monica and you.I didnít move in with Monica until 2 years later. And for the record, Iíve never seen you naked.

 

Joey:Wanna fix that?

 

Rachel:No, itís bad enough that I have to see Ross naked.

 

Joey:Hairy ass?

 

Rachel:Like a dense forest.

 

(short period of silence)

 

Joey:Wanna go fishing?We could go out on Mr. Beaumont.

 

Rachel:I thought you sold Mr. Beaumont?

 

Joey:Right.I always forget about that.Iím sure Chandler wouldnít mind if we used Ms. Icicle Woman.

 

Rachel:You sold Mr. Beaumont to Chandler?

 

Joey:Yeah.He wanted it so I sold it to him for $5,000.

 

Rachel:Joey, you paid $20,000 for that boat.

 

Joey:So?

 

Rachel:Donít ya think that Chandler ripped you off?

 

Joey:I needed the money.He had money, so I sold it to him.Besides, what was I gonna do with a boat?

 

Rachel:Does Monica know that Chandler bought the boat?

 

Joey:Yeah right.There are a lot things that Monica doesnít know about Chandler and thatís one of them.

 

Rachel:Chandlerís keeping secrets from Monica?

 

Joey:I dunno.Is he?

 

Rachel:You just said that he is!

 

Joey:Well I guess he is then.Itís kinda like how Ross doesnít want you to know that heís taking you to Hawaii in February.††

 

Rachel:What?!

 

Joey:Uh oh.(pause)Letís go get some pizza.

 

Rachel:Wait a minute Tribbiani!Sit your ass back down!Ross is taking me to Hawaii?

 

Joey:No.Whereíd you get that from?

 

Rachel:Thatís so sweet, I canít believe him.

 

Joey:Look Rach, Ross confided in me about the whole trip, so please donít say anything to him.

 

Rachel:Ok, I wonít say anything.At least I wonít say that youíre the one who told me.

 

Joey:Seriously Rachel, donít say anything to Ross.Heíll never trust me with a secret again.

 

Rachel:So what other secrets do you know?

 

Joey:No way.Iíve already given away the farm.

 

Rachel:Come on Joey, I know you want to tell me.

 

Joey:Phoebe has pierced nipples.Can we go get a pizza now?

 

CHANDLER & MONICAíS APARTMENT (Monica and Ross are present)

 

Ross:Have you heard from Mom and Dad?

 

Monica:No.Why?

 

Ross:Huh.Thatís odd.They said they were gonna call you.

 

Monica:Is there something I should know?

 

Ross:Yeah.Their 35th wedding anniversary is on Friday and theyíre having a big shindig at the house.All of our relatives and their friends are gonna be there.

 

Monica:Thatís just like Mom.Sheíll probably wait until Friday to call hoping that I canít make it.

 

Ross:Donít be like that Mon, Iím sure sheíll call today.She wants you and Chandler to be there.Why else would she ask me for your number?

 

Monica:My number!Iíve lived in the same apartment for ten years!My phone numberís never changed!

 

Ross:Ok, youíre breaking the sound barrier again.Calm down.Momís getting old, I had to remind her that Rachel and I are married now and expecting her second grandchild.

 

Monica:Oh.Thatís a little better.

 

Ross:I wanted to see if you and Chandler wanted to go in on a gift with Rachel and me.

 

Monica:Yeah, I guess.

 

Ross:Do you have time right now?

 

Monica:Yeah.What do you want to get them?

 

Ross:Tickets to Hawaii.I found cheap airfare and inexpensive accommodations for a week.I was gonna take Rachel, but I couldnít get time off from work.

 

Monica:I guess we could do that.

 

Ross:That not good enough?

 

Monica:I was thinking weíd send Dad to Hawaii and Mom to Siberia.

 

Ross:They really screwed you up, didnít they?

 

Monica:I survived.And besides, I got Dadís Porsche.

 

Ross:Ah yes, nothing like a little bribery to help you forget your terrible upbringing.

 

CENTRAL PERK(Chandler and Phoebe are present)

 

Chandler:Wanna go fishing?

 

Phoebe:Thatís what Iíve been doing.

Chandler:He is kinda cute.

 

Phoebe:Are you sure youíre not gay?

 

Chandler:Last time I checked, no.

 

Phoebe:You might wanna check again.††

 

Chandler:Wanna go to the office with me?My secretaryís on vacation.

 

Phoebe:I could be your secretary again?

Rachel:I really do.

 

Joey:Then youíre demented.

 

Rachel:So Phoebeís nipples are pierced?

 

Joey:Whereíd you here that?

 

Rachel:You told me right before we left your apartment.

 

Joey:Donít say anything to Phoebe.Sheíd kill me if she found out I told you.

Rachel:Monica has her, herÖ.(quietly) its pierced down there?

 

Joey:According to Chandler.

 

Rachel:Oh my God, thatís unbelievableÖ.and very sick!Why in the world did she do that?

 

Joey:According to Chandler, Monica heard from a co-worker that having that pierced would enhance sex.So she did it.She loves it as a matter of fact.

 

Rachel:When did she do it?

 

Joey:Right before they got married.It was her wedding present to Chandler.

 

Rachel:Was it painful?

 

Joey:How the hell should I know?Look, youíre dangerous to hang out with.Youíre gonna get me in so much trouble.The only personís secrets I havenít shared are yours.

 

Rachel:I donít have any secrets Joey.

 

Joey:Oh really?Are you sure?

 

Rachel:Positive.Iíd think Iíd know if I had any secrets.

 

Joey:So that fact that you named your vibrator Big Mean Plunging Machine doesnít mean anything to you?

 

Rachel (embarrassed and upset):Who told you that?

 

Joey:Iím not gonna kiss and tell.

 

Rachel:It was Ross wasnít it?That bastard!

 

Joey (laughing):Not even close.

 

Rachel:It wasnít Ross?

 

Joey:Nope.

 

Rachel:But the only other person who knows that isÖ.

 

Joey:Thatís right, Monica.

 

CHANDLERíS OFFICE (Chandler and Phoebe are present)

 

Phoebe:You need to start coming to work more often.I canít believe you walked into the wrong office twice.

 

Chandler:Yes, but my employees donít know that so keep quiet.

 

Phoebe:What do you want me to do?

 

Chandler:I dunno.

 

Phoebe:Well what does your secretary do all day?

 

Chandler:She makes up excuses for me.

 

Phoebe:Excuses?

 

Chandler:Yeah, like why am I not in my office.Those type of things.

Bill:Isnít that illegal?

 

Phoebe:Only if you get caught.

 

Bill:Well Iíll let you get to work Bing.Sounds like your temp has things under control.(Bill leaves)

 

Chandler:Phoebe!What are you doing?

Ross:She roped you into catering the party?

 

Monica:Yes.She said she wanted to give me ample time to prepare the food.

 

Ross:You should be honored.That means Mom likes your cooking.

Phoebe:Oh, that explains why I didnít know.I havenít listened to my messages for two months.

 

Chandler:Why not?

 

Phoebe:I wanna to see how many calls I get in a three month period.

Ross:She pierced her nipples too?

 

Rachel:Think below the belt.

Rachel:Yes she did.According to Chandler, she did it for his wedding present!

Rachel:I just heard through the grapevine that weíre taking a trip.

 

Ross:We are?Where?

 

Rachel:You mean weíre not taking a trip?

 

Ross:Not that I was aware of.

 

Rachel:But Joey said you and I were going to Hawaii.

(Monica approaches and is within earshot)

 

Ross: Ms. Icicle Woman?

 

Joey:Yeah, thatís what he calls my old boat, Mr. Beaumont.But look Monica doesnít know that Chandler bought it, so keep quiet.

 

Monica:Iím afraid itís too late for that Joey!

Joey:Ross!What are you doing?!

Phoebe:Well I donít think we should let Joey off the hook.I think I should share with you all the dirty little secret Mr. Tribbiani has been keeping from us all for the past eight years.

 

Joey:Donít do it Phoebe!

 

Phoebe:You shouldíve thought of that before you told everyone those secrets.

 

Joey:Phoebe please!Iíll do anything!

 

Ross:Out with it Phoebe.

 

Monica:Yeah, I wanna know now!
