Monica:† Enough with the shower references Pheebs.† Look, itís their wedding day, we donít need Ross getting all bent out of shape which is what heís gonna do if he finds out that I showered with Rachel.†
Phoebe:† You always ruin all the fun.†
Rachel:† Please Phoebe, no more jokes about it.
Phoebe:† Fine, but only if you shower with me Rach.†
Rachel:† Cut it out!† I donít do that anymore!
Phoebe:† Alright, alright, no need to get all pissy.† Let me ask you guys this though, why is it that you can have the straightest hair on your head, but your pubic hairs are always curly?
Monica:† I donít know Phoebe, why is it so important to you?
Phoebe:† I just heard that if they were straight youíd poke your eyes out when you were attending to business.
Rachel:† Youíre sick.† And I donít have that problem anyway, I shave most of it off down there.
Rachel:† Yeah, I have a little patch so I feel like a mature woman.† Other than that, I look like a young little girl.†
Phoebe:† What about you Mon?† Do you shave down there too?
Monica:† First of all, I canít believe we are having this discussion.†† And second, yes, I shave it close down there too.†
Phoebe:† Not me, mine looks like a blond afro.† Thatís the way nature intended it and thatís the way Iím keeping it.†

Chandler:† Weíll be here waiting for the limo to pick us up.†
Joey:† Sounds good.† Man, you had me worried there for a minute.† I thought I was gonna be at the Hotel all by myself.†
Ross:† Anyway, now that the mind games are over, what do you wanna do?† I got four hours left as a single man, weíve gotta do something fun.†
Joey:† What did you did the last time you got married?
Ross:† I walked around Vegas with doodles all over my face.†
Joey:† What about your marriage to Emily?
Ross:† I talked with Rachel.†
Joey:† Ok.† You definitely donít know how to have fun.
Ross:† Hey, Vegas was fun.† Whenís the last time you got married when you were totally drunk?
Chandler:† Heís got you there.†
Joey:† So what should we do?
Joey:† Iím hungry.†
Chandler:† That has nothing to do with porn.†
Joey:† Unless your into oysters and hot dogs.
Ross:† You just ate a half hour ago.† How can you be hungry already?
Joey:† I only ate a half a pizza.† I normally eat the whole thing myself.†
Chandler:† This is your apartment, you gotta have some food around here.†
Joey:† No, Courteneyís been gone and I donít have any food.†
Ross:† Why not?

ROSS & RACHELíS APARTMENT (The girls are sitting around)
Phoebe:† We should do something.† Anyone up for a shower?

Rachel:† Face Pheebs, weíre not showering together.† Iíll be right back.† (Rachel runs to the bathroom)†
Phoebe:† Whatís the matter with her?
(they hear Rachel getting sick in the bathroom)
Monica:† Looks like someone is really nervous.
Phoebe:† Or sheís pregnant.†
Rachel:† Sorry you had to hear that.†
Monica:† Are you feeling ok?
Rachel:† Actually no.† All of the sudden I got the cold sweats and got really nauseous.†
Phoebe:† Maybe youíre pregnant?
Rachel:† I hope not.† I was really looking forward to getting drunk at the wedding.†
Monica:† If you are already puking, youíve got the cart before the horse.† Youíre supposed to get drunk first then get sick.†
Phoebe:† Thereís only one way to find out.† Here.†
Rachel:† What is it?
Phoebe:† Duh, a pregnancy test.† I always carry one around in case of emergency.†
Monica:† You carry a pregnancy test in your purse?†
Phoebe:† You donít?
Monica:† I donít a lot of things you do Pheebs.†
Rachel:† Well I might as well take the test.† Iíll be right back.† (Rachel goes into the bathroom)
Phoebe (to Monica):† $50 sheís pregnant.
Monica:† Forget it. I always lose bets.†
Phoebe:† Geez, you lose your apartment once, and you no longer are a betting machine.† Youíve gotten cranky in your married years.†
Monica:† Iíve been married for six months.† (pause)† Though with Chandler, at times it feels like years.†
(Rachel returns and her face is white)
Monica:† Did you get sick again?† You look like hell.†
Rachel:† I think Iím pregnant.†
Rachel:† Well the test was positive.†
Monica:† Oh my God, youíre knocked up!
Phoebe:† Congratulations.† Oh, this is so exciting!
Monica:† Iím so happy for you.† Granted, now Iím gonna have to listen to all my momís cracks about why Iím not pregnant.†
Rachel:† What am I gonna tell Ross?
Monica:† Uh, that your pregnant?
Rachel:† But we wonít be able to have sex on our honeymoon!
Phoebe:† Sure you can.† It wonít hurt the baby.† And besides, you can always just be there for him.
Monica:† And if you play your cards right, you can tell him that we showered together and got it on.†
Phoebe:† I have one request.
Rachel:† Yeah what?
Phoebe:† I wanna be there when you tell him that you slept with Monica.†
Rachel:† Well itís not gonna happen!† Iím not pregnant!
Monica:† You were only joking?!
Rachel:† Yeah baby, I got you guys good.
Phoebe:† Well you better go find some new bridesmaids Ďcause Monica and I are resigning. †Ready Monica?
Monica:† Letís go.†
(Phoebe and Monica leave with Rachel chasing after them)
Rachel:† Come on guys, I was only joking.† Guys?† Come on, this isnít funny.†
JOEY & COURTENEYíS APARTMENT (The guys are watching a porno)
Chandler:† Itís amazing to me how long they last.†
Joey:† Thatís what youíre thinking?† Whatís the matter with you?† This is porn.† Itís not supposed to produce wonderment.†
Ross:† That woman has unbelievably large breasts.†
Joey:† Thatís Christy Canyon.†
Ross:† How do you know?
Chandler:† He was almost a porn star himself.†
Joey:† Hey in a couple of hours Ross you and Rachel are gonna be doing that.†
Ross:† I hate to inform you of this, but Rachelís not that flexible.† My God, how does she get her legs like that?
Joey:† You should totally bring this tape on your honeymoon.
Ross:† I think I can manage without it.
Joey:† But you could pick up some tips from the tape.†
Chandler:† I donít think anyone can do what Ron Jeremy can do.†
Joey:† I can.
Chandler:† Sorry, I didnít know that you could give yourself a hummer.†
Joey:† Thatís not what I meant!†
Ross:† Wait till the girls here about that!
Joey:† I canít do that!† I would never do that!† You tell them and Iíll spill the beans about Rachel and Monica. †
Ross:† What about Rachel and Monica?
Chandler:† Oh no.†
Joey:† Ah, nothing, I know nothing about Monica and Rachel.†
Chandler:† Donít look at me, heís the one who brought it up.†
Ross (shutting off the TV):† What is it Joey?† What donít I want to know about Monica and Rachel?
Joey:† How about I tell you when you get back from your honeymoon.†
Ross:† No, youíre telling me now.†
Joey:† Chandler, could you help me please?
Chandler:† Youíre on your own here little hummer boy.†
Joey:† Fine, but youíre not gonna like it.†
Ross:† Tell me now Joey!
Joey:† Alright, alright.† Rachel and Monica showered and did other sexual stuff together once when they were in college.†
Chandler:† Rachel and Monica had sex together.†
Ross:† Thanks, I heard him the first time.
Joey:† Are you mad?
Ross:† No, thatís old news.†
Chandler:† You mean you already know about it.†
Ross:† Yeah, Rachel told me when we were drunk in Vegas.† It was right before we had sex.† We talked about it and laughed and then we got it on.† It didnít last long though, she passed out when she was on top of me.† Anyway, I thought it was hysterical at the time. (pause)† Itís not so funny anymore though.
Joey:† But you knew.† I mean you know.†
Ross:† Yeah.† Rachel obviously doesnít remember telling me about it.†
Chandler:† Youíre gonna use this against her arenít you?
Ross:† Not necessarily.† Iím just gonna have a little fun with her thatís all.
Chandler:† Youíre sadistic.†
Ross:† Isnít that a great trait to have?
Chandler:† It must run in the Geller family.† Monicaís the same way with me.†
Joey:† Man, itís 1:15, I better get to the hotel.† Are you guys coming?
Chandler:† No.† Weíre gonna wait for the limo, remember?
Joey:† Iíll see you guys there.† (Joey leaves)
Ross:† He really is incredibly stupid at times.†
Chandler:† And an hour and half early to your wedding.† No wonder why he and Courteney get along so well.† Sheís more gullible than he is.†
Ross (laughing):† Imagine how stupid their children are gonna be.†
Chandler:† Heíll probably never have children.† I donít think he knows that he has to take the condom off to have a chance at getting someone pregnant.†
Ross:† Thatís good to know.† I donít think I could handle Joey having kids.†
ROSS & RACHELíS APARTMENT (The limo has arrived to pick up the girls)
Monica:† Come on Rach, the limoís here.† Weíve got to go.†
Phoebe:† Do you think the limo driver will let me drive?
Rachel:† Alright letís go.†
Monica:† You look so beautiful in that dress.†
Phoebe:† Itís a good thing youíre not pregnant, youíd have to change the color of your dress.†
Phoebe:† You canít wear white if youíre pregnant.†
Monica:† No, youíre not supposed to wear white if youíre not a virgin.†
Phoebe:† Well then she should have gotten married when she was sixteen.† (Monica starts laughing)†
Monica:† Come on you know itís true.
Rachel:† Still, cheap shot.†
Monica:† Weíve gotta go.†
Rachel:† Hey wait a minute, we forgot to do the shot thing.
Monica:† What shot thing?
Rachel:† You know, the shot of Jack Daniels to celebrate our friendship and another milestone in one of our lives.†
Monica:† Oh yeah.† You got the Jack Daniels?
Rachel:† Right here baby.† Wait a minute, why is it half empty?
Phoebe:† Oops, that would be me.† I found the bottle last night and helped myself.†
Rachel:† You drank half the bottle!
Phoebe:† Trust me I know.†† I still feel sick.†
Rachel:† Anyway, here are your shot glasses. †(pouring the shots) And hereís the whiskey. (lifting her shot glass):† To friendship that will never die.†
Monica/Phoebe:† To friendship.
Rachel:† Oh crap, Iím gonna be sick again!† (Rachel runs to the bathroom)
Phoebe:† What a lightweight.†
JOEY & COURTENEYíS APARTMENT† (Chandler and Ross are waiting for the limo)
Ross:† You know, I think this marriage is gonna last.
Chandler:† If it didnít youíd be the worst man at marriage ever.†
Ross:† You know what they say, the fourth timeís the charm.
Chandler:† Thatís the third time, the third time is the charm.
Ross:† Why do you always have to be right?
Chandler:† Sorry, I think your sister has rubbed off on me.† Seriously, Iíve never seen you more in love with anyone then you are with Rachel.† Even when you married Carol, I always thought that it wasnít gonna last.† When you married Emily, same thing.† But when you married Rachel the first time and didnít wanna get divorced right away and you hid it from her, I knew then that deep down you still loved her.
Ross:† Why didnít you say anything?
Chandler:† Not any of my business.† You make your own choices Ross.†
Ross:† I know that.† Why didnít you say anything after Rachel and I got married in Vegas?
Chandler:† I knew that you still loved her, but Rachel hadnít forgiven you yet.† You donít mess with Rachelís life.†
Ross:† After Vegas, thatís when I knew, thatís when I knew I still was in love with her.† I just hoped that sheíd forgive me someday.
Chandler:† Well your day has come.†
Ross:† And thatís why the fourth time is the charm.
(the intercom buzzes)
Man on Intercom:† The limo is here to pick up the Geller party.
Chandler:† Weíll be right down.† Are you ready?
Ross:† Yeah, letís do it.†
Chandler:† Not me and you right?
Ross:† Well youíre the one who said youíve been with a man before.†
PARK AVENUE HOTEL† (The hall where the wedding is held.† The audience has been seated and is waiting for the wedding to start.† Ross, Joey and Chandler are at the front of the audience.† Phoebe, Monica and Rachel are in another room)
Ross:† Where are Brad and Jen? (a commotion is heard at the back of the hall Ė photographer flashes and reportersí questions being shouted.† Brad and Jen enter, embarrassed by the attention)† And there they are.†
Chandler:† Have you ever realize how much Rachel looks like Jen?
Joey:† I know, itís like theyíre identical twins.†
Ross:† Huh, I just donít see it.†
Chandler:† A man blinded by love.†
Joey (to Ross):† Youíre blind?† When did that happen?† How many fingers am I holding up?† (holds up two)
Joey (to Chandler):† Heís not blind, whyíd you say heís blind?
Woman:† Weíre ready to start.† Joey and Chandler, follow me.†
Chandler:† Good luck Ross.
Joey:† Good luck man.† Man, this is his fourth marriage, I just wanna be married once!
Courteney (from her seat):† Iíll marry you Joey if you ask.†
Joey (to Chandler):† She wasnít supposed to hear that.†††
Cut to the front of the hall, Ross is waiting for Rachel, Chandler and Joey have moved to the back of the hall to escort Monica and Phoebe down the aisle. Jenniferís Song starts playing and the procession begins.† Joey and Phoebe are first, followed by Chandler and Monica.† The Bridal Chorus starts and the congregation rises, Rachel is escorted down the aisle by her father.)
Dr. Green (to Ross): Dr. WetheadÖ..
Dr. Green:† Ross, I give to you my daughter Rachel, make an honest woman of her.† (to Rachel)† I love you Rachel and Iím proud of you.† Oh, and Iím proud that you didnít go out the window this time.†
Rachel:† Thanks Daddy.†
(Dr. Green sits down)
Ross (whispering to Rachel)† Hey, before we get married, Iíve got one question.
Rachel (whispering):† Quickly.†
Ross:† Whoís a better kisser, me or Monica? (Rachel is left speechless)† I knew it was me.† Time to get married.†
(Ross and Rachel turn to face the Minister. Chandler and Joey are next to Ross on the right side and Monica and Phoebe are next to Rachel on the left side.)
Minister:†† Ladies and Gentlemen, we are gathered here today to join Rachel Green and Ross Geller in matrimony.† Marriage is a very important institution.† One built on trust and love.† Monica will now read a passage from the Book of Corinthians that speaks to the virtues of love.† MonicaÖ.
Monica:† Hi.† Iíve never done this before so if I screw up, Iím sorry.† Ok.† Here we go.†
Chandler (whispering to Joey):† Iím not married to that woman.† Iíve never seen her before in my life.
Monica:† Love is patient, love is kind.† It does not envy it does not boast, it is not proud.† It is not rude, it is not self-seeking.† It is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.† Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.† It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.† Love never fails.† Faith, hope and love, but the greatest of these is love.†
Minister:† Thank you very much for that beautiful reading Monica.† We shall now proceed to the ceremony.† We are here today to join Rachel Green and Ross Geller in matrimony.† We are here to celebrate their love for one another and have asked you in the audience to share in their display of their love for each other.† If there is anyone here who has any reason why these two shouldn't wed, speak now or forever hold your peace.† (Pause)†
Man:† I object!†
(Ross and Rachel turn around to find Gunther standing)
Rachel:† Gunther, what the hell are you doing?!
Minister:† Um, if the bride and groom and you sir would follow me, we have some things to talk about.†
Ross:† Iím gonna kick his ass!
Rachel:† This is all your fault, you never have normal weddings!
PARK AVENUE HOTEL† (The rest of the bridal party is standing stunned)
Monica:† Leave it to Ross and Rachel to have a weird wedding.†
Phoebe:† I knew this was gonna happen.† Guntherís been in love with Rachel ever since she came to the City.†
Chandler:† Why didnít you tell her or something?
Phoebe:† I thought you guys knew.† We talk about it all the time?
Joey:† Whoís we?
Phoebe:† Denise and I. †
Chandler:† Ah yes, Phoebeís imaginary roommate.†
Phoebe:† Sheís not imaginary, sheís right over there.† (points to an older woman)
Monica:† Thatís my Aunt Kathleen Phoebe.†
