TOW Ross's Wedding - parts 1+2
written by Caitie
(This fanfic is my version of how those two eps should have gone if I had written them. My fanfic starts from the beginning of the ep. I took a little bits of lines from the original ep. Oh, and I do not own these characters. They belong to Crane, Kaffman, and Bright.)
(Scene: Joey and Chandler's, everyone there but Monica and Ross.)
Joey: Wow, I can't believe Ross is getting married.
Phoebe: I know, it seems like it was just yesterday when he told us that Carol was a lesbian.
Joey: Yeah, Good times.
Rachel: How was that good Joey?
Joey: Because it was cool.
Chandler: Man I gotta get a new roommate.
(Monica runs in)
Monica: (panicking and talking fast) Chandler, Joey come on we have to go. The plane is leaving in tow hours. There could be traffic, it could rain, the flight could be delayed. LET'S GO, LET'S GO, LET'S GO!!
Chandler: Monica: we don't leave until tomorrow.
Joey: Yeah, and you're freaking me out!
Monica: Oh, good I just wanted to give you a little taste of how I'm going to be tomorrow morning.
Chandler: Mon, does being crazy have anything to do with being you?
Joey: Well, I better go pack.
Monica: Wait a minute, you haven't packed yet?
Monica: Joey, you should have gotten your stuff packed a week ago.
Joey: Yeah, I should have but I chose not to.
Monica: Joey, you know what I don't care if don't pack. I don't care if you pack at the last minute. I don't care if we are about to leave and you say "I have to pack." I'll pack for you myself (goes into Joey's room to pack his things).

Rachel: Yeah, well you would be mad too if you couldn't attend your best friends wedding because...
Chandler: (cutting her off) Your still in love with him?
Rachel: No, wha-why would you say such a thing?
Chandler: (pause) Because it's true.
Rachel: No it is not true. You know what, just because you said that i'm taking you off my list.
Chandler: What list?
Rachel: My list of People who I would sleep with if I had to.
Chandler: I'm on your list?
Rachel: It really doesn't matter. You're number 105 anyway.
(Ross, Monica and Joey enter. Joey is carrying his suitcase.)
Chandler/Rachel/Phoebe: Hey/Hi/Sup etc...
Monica: See Joey, didn't I tell you you would have more space in your bag if you fold you clothes horizontally instead of vertically?
Joey: (sarcastic) Yeah, and you also told me that it would be better to stack them from largest to smallest.
Monica: (laughing) Wasn't that fun?
Joey: (laughing sarcastically) Yeah it was. (to Chandler) I bet I will kill her before you do.
Ross: Um, wow we have to leave in about 10 mins to get good seats on the plane.
Rachel: Ooh, I have something to give you. (goes into her bedroom)
Phoebe: Oh, Ross congradulations on your wedding.
Ross: Aww thanks Pheebs. (hugs her)

Chandler: My ass is like totally numb.
(Rachel comes our of her bedroom with something in her hand.)
Rachel: Here you go. (hands it to Ross)
Ross: A condom?
Rachel: Yeah, for your honeymoon when your gettin' lucky. (laughs)
Ross: I already have condoms.
Rachel: Well, just think of this as my something blue from me to you.
Rachel: Yeah, you can think of me when you're putting that badboy on, huh? (laughs)
(Ross gives her a weird and disgusted look)
Rachel: You know what don't think about me. Just take and have fun.
Ross: Wait a minute. Um, Rach can you come?
Rachel: Ross, I already told I have a big presentation to do. I can't.
Ross: Well, can't you bump that for me?
Rachel: Ross, if I do I am gonna get fired. No, I can't. I'm sorry.
Ross: Rachel, it's not like i'm asking you for a favor, this is my wedding. If the tables were turned I'd bump anything to see you get married.
(Rachel gives him a awkward glance)
Ross: You know what fine. Don't come. We gotta get going anyway.
Monica: (talking fast) Guys come on we have to leave. Let's get moving!
(Chandler gives her a worried look)
Monica: I'm doing it again aren't I?
Chandler: Pretty much.
(Everybody exchanges hugs, kisses, and goodbyes)
(Chandler, Ross, Monica, And Joey leave)

(Scene: A big plane, Joey and Chandler are seated near each other and Monica and Ross are seated near each other)
Joey: Oh god!
Joey: I think i'm gonna puke!
Chandler: If you're gonna do that go sit near Ross or something.
Joey: I'm sorry. I just feel a litle car sick that's all.
Chandler: We're on a plane.
Joey: So? I can still be car sick on a plane right?
Chandler: (pause for a long time) Yes.
Joey: Okay then.
(Cut to: Ross and Monica.)
Monica: Hey, how are you?
Monica: Really. You aren't nervous?<BR>
Ross: Why would I be?
Monica: Well, because of the thought of Emily for the rest of your life. I mean, you'll never get to have sex with another woman again ever. I mean no more. You'll never get to fall in love again. You'll never have a kiss again. You'll never get to fall in love with a woman, and come to find out she's a lesbian. You're gonna be with Emily for the rest of you life. She could have like this Hannibel Lector mixed with Kathy Bates in Misery pesonallity but she doesn't want to show until after her wedding.
Monica: What am I worrying about you two are way to much in love for something bad to happen to your realationship. You know what Ross, you're the most honest person in the world. (hugs him)
Ross: Yeah. (he has a blank and worried look on his face)
(Scene: Monica and Rachel's, Phoebe is there when Rachel comes out of her bedroom carrying a Photo Album.)
Phoebe: What's that?
Rachel: It's a Photo Album.
Phoebe: Oh, I wanna see.
Rachel: Okay. (Phoebe sits near Rachel. They look through the album)
Phoebe: Well, this album is only filled with pictures of Ross and you.
Rachel: Oh yeah, this was the album I kept of us when we were going out.
Rachel: Yeah. Ooh,I love this picture.
Rachel: Oh, because this was when we went to our first carnival together. (starts to laugh)
Phoebe: What's so funny?
Rachel: Well, uh we were about to get on the ferris wheel and Ross made me laugh so that I acidentally threw up all of the chocolate milkshake I had early on his white pants, and it looked like he had crap all over his pants. (laughs)
Phoebe: (laughing) Oh my god!
Rachel: (stops laughing) Oh my god .
Phoebe: I know I still can't get over the fact that you guys are such wimps that you had to ride the crappy ferris wheel. (laughs)
(Scene: The London Marriot, Chandler, Monica and Joey exit)
Joey: (filming Monica and Chandler) So, what did you guys think of the Marriot?
Monica: Well, I think it's a beautiful place.
Chandler: I think you should put the camera away.
Joey: Why should?
Chandler: Because you're making an ass out of you're self?
Joey: Says who?
Chandler: Says..... the London police.
Joey: (getting scared) Do you think they are gonna arrest me?
Monica: Joey, don't listen to Chandler. He's just mad because he doesn't like cameras.
Joey: Okay. Oh, Monica where do you wanna go now?
Chandler: (cutting her off) Maybe to a food store far far away?
(Scene: Emily and Ross' hotel room, they are there watching a movie)
Ross: Wow, Joey was right the british version of die hard is good.
Emily: Yes it is.
Ross: So, uh when I am I going to get to see the place we're getting married in?
Emily: Later on, Monica said that she wanted to go with us to see it, since this might be her only chance to ever get close to getting married as possible.
Ross: She really said that?
Emily: No, your mother did.
Emily: So, is Rachel coming at all?
Ross: Unfortunatly no. I wanted her to come so badly but she had to work.
Emily: Oh, I'm so sorry Ross. (kisses him)
( Scene: Monica and Rachel's, Phoebe is balancing a stack of plates on her tummy. Rachel is in her bedroom.)
Phoebe: Wow, being fat for nine months really does pay off.
(Cut to: Rachel's bedroom, she is looking through the photo album.)
Rachel: (sighs) Oh god. (she sees a picture of her and Chandler in there.)
(Rachel starts to hear Chandler's voice)
Chandler's voice: Rachel.
(Chandler suddenly appears next to her and she is startled)
Chandler's voice: What's wrong?
Rachel: I thought you were in London?
Chandler's voice: Yeah. I am here because you are having some trouble.
Rachel: What do you mean?
Chandler's voice: Why didn't you go to Ross' wedding?
Rachel: Because he's my ex-boyfriend and it would be weird to see him getting married.
Chandler's voice: And because your still in love with him?
Rachel: No, I just.... well it's gonna be to hard for me to sit there and watch him get married.
Chandler's voice: If you're not still in love with him why would it be hard?
Rachel: (pause) I don't know.
Chandler's voice: Look Rachel let's cut the crap okay? You and Ross are met to be together and he's went to London to marry someone who he met like six weeks ago. Now he suppossibly has been in love with her for those six weeks but he was in love with you since like for ever. Do you really think that he would just give that kind of love away?
Rachel: I guess...
Chandler's voice: (cutting her off) No you don't guess you know! Why do you think Ross was so desperate for you to come, huh? You think he wanted you to come so that if he needed a condom he would know who to go? Rachel if you don't do something about this you are gonna regret it for the rest of your life. Your're like a sister to be and I would want you to have anything that would make you happy.
Rachel: Even if I could do something what would I do he's in London?
Chandler's voice: That you're gonna have to figure out you're self. (he disappears)
(Rachel stares at the wall and closes her photo book suddenly)
(Scene: Wesminster Abby, Joey and Chandler are there)
Joey: (filming) Wow, this Abby is not to Shabby. (laughs)
Chandler: You're an idiot.
Joey: Wow isn't it nice here?
Joey: I bet this place is a real babe magnet.
Chandler: (sarcastic) I bet it is!
(a woman approchases them)
Joey and Chandler: (at the same them) Hi.
Woman: Are you from america?
Joey: Are you from London?
(The lady looks at him weird, chandler gives him a stupid look)
Chandler: You'll have to excuse my friend. He has the mind of an 11 year old. We actually came here for a wedding.
Woman: A wedding, is it yours?
Joey: No, it's not mine.
Woman: I was actually talking to your friend.
Chandler: Oh, uh no its not mine.
Woman: Say, uh..
Chandler: Bing, Chandler bing.
Joey: (mad) You don't have to go all 007 on me man!
Woman: My name's Amber.
Chandler: Like the color?
Amber: Yes. Chandler would you like to go get a cup of coffee with me?
Chandler: Sure. (leaves with her)
Joey: (mad) Fine. Go ahead and leave me here all alone. I don't need you. I don't need anybody! I'M GONNA MAKE IT BY MYSELF!!

Ross: Its all right! Everythings gonna be all right.
Emily: Hows it gonna be all right?!

Ross: What? What?
Monica: They torn it down a few days early.
[Scene: Monica and Rachel's, Phoebe still has the plates on her tummy, Rachel is still in her bedroom, the phone rings and Phoebe carefully answers it.]

Joey: Two pizzas?!
Phoebe: Yep! Okay, gotta go, talk to you later.
Joey: Wait, well, where did you get it from?! (Phoebe has already hung up, leaving Joey in the dark. So Joey decides to watch some TV and turns on a rerun of <I>Cheers</I>, with the theme song playing. At first, hes happy, but as the song progresses Joey gets depressed and homesick.)
[Scene: Ross and Emilys planned wedding place, Monica is dragging Emily in.]
Emily: Monica, why have you brought me here of all places?!
Monica: Youll see.
Emily: I tell you, this wedding is not going to happen.(At that Ross plugs in some Christmas lights to light the place up.)
Emily: Oh God.
Ross: Okay? But-but imagine a lot more lights, okay? And-and yknow fewer bricks, and-and-and flowers, and candles
Monica: And the musicians, look, they can go over here (Points to a little alcove), okay? And the chairs can face this way (Points), and (Points to Ross) You go.
Ross: But-but, if you dont love this, well do it in any other place at any other time. Really, its fine, whatever you want.
Emily: Its perfect.
Ross: And, I dont know, if it starts to rain
Emily: Well then well get wet. (They kiss.)

Phoebe: Yeah, it's in the guys apartment uder the sink. Why'd you ask?
Rachel: (coming out of her bedroom with ner suitcase) Cause I'm going to London.
Phoebe: (stands up so fast she drops and breaks all the plates that was on her tummy) What?!

Phoebe: Where did you get an idea like that?
Rachel: (goes to open bathroom door) From Chandler. (chick and duck come out) Bye guys.
Rachel: Well, not actually Chandler. My concious is Chandler. He told me I have to tell him someway, somehow.
Phoebe: No, Rachel your concious is an idiot!!
Rachel: No, he was right. He's not an idiot, and he kinda cute.
Phoebe: Okay, you've been living with Monica way too long. You can't do that!
Phoebe: Because you're going to ruin the wedding.
Rachel: No, I am going to tell him before the wedding. So, he can make a decision on who he wants to be with.
Phoebe: Thats not why youre going! Youre going because you hope hes gonna say, "Yeah, I love you too, Rach. Forget that British chippy.
"Rachel: OhhDo you think he will?!
Phoebe: No! Because hes in love with the British chippy! Look, Rachel, if you go, youre just gonna mess with his head and ruin his wedding! Yknow, its too late! You missed youre chance! Im sorry, I know this must be really hard, its over.
Rachel: Yknow what? No. Its not over until someone says, "I do." (Exits)
Phoebe: I do! I do! I do! (Chases her into the hall, but Rachel doesnt stop.) I do! (Gives up.) Ugh, like I can really chase you. Im carrying a litter.

Phoebe: Don't hey Pheebs me after what you did!
Chandler: What did I do?
Phoebe: You told Rachel to come to London to tell Ross she is still in love with him.
Chandler: I did not!
Phoebe: Sure you didn't! Rachel is coming to London.
Phoebe: No it's not! Are you listening to me at all. When she gets there what ever you told her to make her think she has to tell Ross she love him, tell her the opposite , okay?
Phoebe: What did you tell her?
Phoebe: Uh, I gonna kick your ass when you get back in america!
