RACHEL AND MONICAS APARTMENT (Phoebe and Rachel are sitting at the table)
Phoebe: Rach, whats wrong?
Rachel: Huh? Oh, sorry, Im just tired I guess.
Phoebe: Bummed you didnt get to go to England with the others?
Rachel: Excuse me? I chose to stay here. Youre the one who should be bummed. I mean, you have to stay here.
Rachel: No Pheebs, Im sorry. I guess, I guess
Phoebe: Rach, its okay. If the man I loved was getting married then I guess I would be bummed to.
Rachel: Yeah (Suddenly realizing what she just said) WHAT! I am not still in love with Ross. (Everything in quotes she is just babbling) He is just my good friend. I mean I love Ross, as a friend. That doesnt mean that I am IN LOVE with him. I mean sure I still have feelings for Ross. Thats normal. Ross was my first real love. He was someone who I really connected with. Its normal for me to still have continuing feelings of love towards him. I mean sure I love Ross. Oh my god Phoebe. I am still in love with Ross. Why didnt you tell me?
Phoebe: What?! We all thought you knew.
Phoebe: Yeah, we talk about it all the time. None of us were really worried about you, with Rosss marriage because we all figured that you would finally come out and tell him that you still loved him and he would drop Emily, like he did with Julie, and go back to you.
Rachel: I am not going to tell him that I love him, he loves Emily (She is obviously upset) I just have to learn to deal with it.
Rachel: (Yelling from her bedroom) Phoebe?
Rachel: Do you remember where everything is?
Phoebe: Uh yeah. The towels are in the bathroom, the mop is in the closet, and the food is in the kitchen (Continues talking) why?
Rachel: (Coming out of her room with suitcases) Because Im going to London. Ross has to know how I feel.
Phoebe: Rach, be careful. He is in love with Emily.
Rachel: I know, but deep down, I know he still loves me. Bye Pheebs.
(Rachel leaves, closing the door behind her.)
Phoebe: (To herself) I hope Rachel gets him!
MONICAS HOTEL ROOM IN LONDON (Monica is just walking in with Chandler)
Monica: How did we let that happen last night? I mean what are we going to do when we get back to New York?
Chandler: Monica? Mon, its okay. Calm down. You were upset last night. It is going to be okay.
Monica: (starting to break down) Im never going to get married. I mean, this is Rosss second marriage.
Chandler: Monica. Come here. (She walks over to him and he holds her in a hug.
Monica: (Backing away from him) I know lets get married.
Chandler: (In a high voice) What? (Normal voice) Mon, youre tired; youre upset, why dont you just take a nap.
Monica: (In a small voice) okay (Chandler helps her into bed and starts to leave when the phone rings) What was that?
Chandler: It was the telephone. Ill get it.
Monica: (Starts to lye down.) ok.
Chandler: (On phone) Hello?
Phoebe: (On the other end of the phone line) Hey Chandler!
Chandler: (on phone) Hey Pheebs.
Phoebe: Is Monica there?
Chandler: (on phone) Uh yeah. Hold on a sec. (to Monica) its Phoebe, she want to talk to you.
Monica: (she takes the phone) Hey Pheebs. How are you? Oh my god whats wrong? (Starts freaking out) Are you in Labor? Oh my god! Youll be all right. I knew that this would happen while we were away
Phoebe: No, no, no. Im fine. Listen, Rachel is on her way to London.
Phoebe: No, not fine. Rachel is coming to tell Ross that she loves him.
Monica: What! She had to wait until now!
Phoebe: Apparently she didnt realize she was in love with him until I told her.
Monica: What? I mean we talk about it all the time. She is so obvious.
Phoebe: I know. Thats what I told her.
Monica: Well, I wish she could have picked a better time. All though, I do kinda wish that she gets Ross.
Phoebe: Me too. But what should we do? You need to talk to her.
Monica: When she gets here I try and talk her out of it. How bad is she?
Phoebe: She really loves him.
THE AIRPORT (Rachel is standing in line)
Ticket Agent: Next.
Rachel: Yes, um. One ticket to London please.
Ticket Agent: Um okay, that will be $2700.
Rachel: Okay. (Hands her the credit card)
Ticket Agent: The plane leaves in 20 minutes at gate 23.
Rachel: Thank you. (She starts walking quickly towards her gate.)
THE CHAPEL WHERE ROSS AND EMILYS WEDDING IS BEING HELD (Monica is talking to Joey and Chandler)
Monica: Listen you guys. Rachel is coming to tell Ross that she loves him. We have to stop her.
Joey: Why? Dont we want Ross and Rachel together?
Monica: Well yes. But no. NO. She cant ruin the wedding with all these people here. She can tell him after he and Emily get back from the honeymoon. Then she can tell him and Ross and Emily can get divorced.
Chandler: Ok, lets worry about that then. Right now we just have to watch for Rachel and make sure she doesnt talk to Ross until after the wedding.
TIME LAPSE ( the wedding is now about to begin when Rachel walks in the door. Monica was waiting for her. Ross is already at the altar)
Monica: Rach, thank god I caught you.
Rachel: Mon, not now, I have to tell Ross I love him.
Monica: No. Rachel, you have to wait. Listen the wedding is about to start, you have to wait. Just sit down and dont say anything until we get back to New York. Please Rach. He loves Emily. You have to deal with it.
Rachel: (sounding depressed) I guess your right. (She goes and sits down.)
(Ross is standing at the altar with Joey and Chandler on his left with Monica and the other brides mates on the other side of the priest. Ross doesnt know that Rachel is there yet. The Wedding March begins to play and Emily begins to walk down the isle. Emily reaches the end of the isle and Ross takes her hand. When Ross takes her hand he notices Rachel. Their eyes meet and you can tell that Rachel wishes she were the one at the altar with him.)(A flashback of Ross and Rachels first kiss comes into Rosss head. He shakes his head and he and Emily walk up to the Minister.)
Minister: We are gathered here today to join Emily Waltham and Ross Geller in Holy Matrimony. If anybody objects to their marriage please speak now or forever hold your peace. (he pauses) Now Emily repeat after me. I Emily, take thee Ross, in sickness and in health until death do us part.
Emily: I Emily, take thee Ross, in sickness and in health until death do us part.
Mister: Now, Ross, repeat after me. I Ross, take thee Emily, in sickness and in Health until death do us part.
Ross: I Ross, (he looks at Rachel, and then at Emily) take thee Rachel in sickne
Emily: (she glares at him)
Minister: Shall I continue?
Emily: Yes, (glares at Ross) Yes, do continue.
Minister: Let us try this again. Now Ross, repeat after me. I Ross,
Ross: I Ross,
Minister: Take thee EMILY!
Ross: Take thee Emily,
Minister: in sickness or in health until death do us part.
Ross: in sickness or in health until death do us part.
Minister: Now, by the power vested in me I now pronounce you husband and wife, you may kiss the bride. (Ross goes to kiss Emily but she keeps moving her head. Emily grabs Rosss hand and drags him down the isle.)
ROSSS HOTEL ROOM (Ross and Monica are talking)
Ross: I cant believe Emily just ran off like that, I mean Rachel is just my good friend, that is it.
Monica: Are you (there is a knock at the door. Ross goes to get it) sure?
Ross: (Emilys parents are at the door) Is Emily with you?
Mr. Waltham: No, she is not with us. She wants nothing to do with you.
Mrs. Waltham: We are here for her stuff. (They get her bags and start to leave)
Ross: Wait; tell Emily that I am sorry and that I love her. Rachel is just my good friend, that is all. Tell Emily that I will be at the airport waiting for our plane, and I would like her to come. Tell her that I will be there and that I love her.
THE AIRPORT (Everyone has already left on their plane. Ross is sitting in an empty waiting area, Rachel is walking down the hall towards him, they dont see each other)
Rachel: (she turns around) What are you doing here? Still no sign of Emily?
Ross: No, I hope she comes. Why are you still here? The others left a few hours ago.
Rachel: Ive been waiting around for stand by forever.
Ross: Sorry Rach.
Rachel: So when does your flight leave?
Loudspeaker: Last boarding call for flight 2360 to Athens.
Ross: Pretty soon I guess.
Rachel: Oh, Im sorry Ross. Wait a minute. You know what, you should go. Go on your honeymoon, clear your head, and when you come back you will be all ready to start your marriage with Emily. ( While she is saying this a pained expression comes across her face) Go it will be good for you and Emily. Then you can come back and start your lives together.
Ross: I guess your right. Bye Rach, (gives her a hug) Ill see you in New York.
Rachel: Yeah if I ever get out of her.
Ross: Yeah (looks at his tickets and gets an idea) Hey, why dont you come with me?
Rachel: What? I dont know? What about Emily!?
Ross: Oh, come on. Ill cry over my marriage and hope that Emily will forgive me and you can flirt with cute Greek guys. Come on it will be fun.
Rachel: Ohh Ok, why not?
Ross: Great, come on. (They walk over to the boarding station and walk down the ramp, just as Emily arrives to see them get on the plane together. You guessed it, she is MAD!!)

Rachel: No, no no. I am on an airplane, but Im not heading for New York.
Monica: Where are you going? Is this about Ross? Hunny, you just have to let him go.
Rachel: Yes this is about Ross But
Rachel: Monica, he invited me.
Rachel: Emily never showed up for their honeymoon. I told Ross to go alone and he invited me to g with him.
Rachel: It must means he still loves me.
Monica: No, he probably just wanted a friend. Dont do anything stupid.
Rachel: No promises. Bye.

Chandler: Who was that?
Monica: Rachel, she is on a plane.

Monica: She will be home next Thursday.
Monica: Her plane is headed for Greece.
Chandler: Hey wait a minute Greece is where Emily and Ross went for their honeymoon
Chandler: She wouldnt!!
Monica: She would, but not exactly like you are thinking.
Monica: Emily never showed up for their honeymoon, so Ross invited Rachel to come to Greece with him.
(the doorbell rings)
Monica: (while she is walking towards the door she is looking at and talking to Chandler.) What do you think will happen?
Chandler: I dont know. Do you think they will.
Monica: I dont think they will. (she opens the door but is still looking at Chandler) But I kinda do hope that Ross falls for Rachel. (she turns to face the person at the door. IT IS EMILY!!)
Emily: (she heard Monicas last sentence.) I knew it. Ross just married be for the free trip so he could take Rachie on the honeymoon.
Emily: Thats right. Oops. Tell Ross that it is over. Im going back to England and I never want to see him again. (She runs down the hall)

Ross:(walks over to her.) Its okay. Listen my marriage with Emily was never real. I only got together with her because I was still in love with you and I wanted to get back at you.
Ross: Its okay. (He hugs her tightly.)
Rachel: Do you remember how when I woke up on the plane I had called you honey?
Ross: Yeah, that was sort off weird.
Rachel: It was because I had a dream where you proposed to me in the middle of the airport and I said yes and we went back to New York And then, for some reason we had a double wedding with Monica and Chandler.
Ross: Like that would ever happen.
Rachel: Are you saying that there is no chance of us getting married?
Ross: No, no no. Just Monica and Chandler? Yeah right.
MONICA AND RACHELS APARTMENT (Monica and Chandler are there)
Monica: So, what did we do in England?
Chandler: Something amazing.
Monica: Should we keep going. I mean, you are like one of my best friends. I just felt something between us that I havent felt before.
Chandler: I agree, but lets not tell anyone else until we are sure. I mean you remember what happened when Ross and Rachel split up. I dont want to get the other guys in the middle of this.
HOTEL ROOM (Ross and Rachel are sitting on the couch giving each other the look)
Ross: So, what now?
Rachel: Are we together? Or am I totally lost?
Ross: Lets give it a go. We still have six days left of this honeymoon, lets use it. If it doesnt work out by the end of the week then we will go home.
Rachel: Agreed. What about Emily?
Ross: Monica said that she dropped off divorce papers and all I have to do is sign them.
Rachel: (starts to laugh, Ross glares at her and she shuts up) Sorry. I just never liked her. (Now Ross laughs)
A WEEK LATER
AIRPLANE (Ross and Rachel are sitting together looking very close.)
Ross: So we are going back to New York.

Rachel: Okay, so lets keep it a secret for a while, when the time is right we will tell everyone else.
LATER (Ross and Rachel are getting off the plane.)
Ross: Did you tell anyone to pick us up?
Rachel: Yeah Phoebe said that she would meet us at baggage claim.
Ross: Okay. (Gives her a big kiss) Lets go.

Phoebe: The lobsters are back!
