Ro: Rach is something wrong?

Ra:(coldly) I can't hear you I'm swimming (dives under the water)

Ro: Wha.....Rachel, (pulls her back up) Rachel what is the matter with you?

Ra: Nothing I'm gonna go back to the hotel (runs away before he can catch her)

[Cut to R&R's room, Rachel is pacing around the room, enter Ross out of breath]

Ro: Ra-(gasps for air) Rachel your obviously mad at me, now what is wrong?

Ra: Oh nothing, nothing just you said you would rather sleep with Phoebe than me.

Ro: What?

Ra: When she was giving you that stupid little test

Ro: So why do you care?

Ra: Well I umm......I, I don't know..........I just, I don't know, but why do you want to sleep with Phoebe?

Ro:(yelling) I don't want to sleep with Phoebe, I just said that because if I told the truth then you'd get mad, that I'm in love with you

Ra: What? Your in love with me again?

Ro:(sighs) I never stopped loving you

Ra: Well why didn't you tell me?

Ro: What difference would it make if I had your still mad at me for cheating on you, if I had told you I would just be a pathetic loser who is in love with a woman he can't have.

Ra: Ross your not the loser I am, at least I you can love other people, I've never had a relationship where there was actual love other than with us.

Ro: What's your point?

Ra: You should have told me!

Ro: Well I just did

Ra: Sooner

Ro: What difference would it make?

Ra: Well maybe I would have wanted to try and work it out, did you ever think of that uh Ross?

Ro: No I-

Ra: And I told you I was in love with you while you were trying to work things out with Emily, even though everyone said it was a bad idea!

Ro: I'm sorry, I'm wrong, I should have told you

Ra: You always say your sorry!

Ro: Well what else do you want me to do? You want me to go back in time and not sleep with Chloe, cuz if I could I would in a instant but I can't (Rachel starts to cry)

Ro:(almost begging) Oh god Rachel, no, no Rachel don't cry, god when you cry I want to, to change the world so nothing will ever hurt you.

Ra:(crying harder) Oh god, damn you Ross! How do you expect me to stay mad at you when your being so sweet?!

Ro: I don't know (they look at each other for a minuet)

Ra:(uncomfortable) Uhh I'm going to my room

Ro: This is your room

Ra: Right well then I'm gonna go to, to, to....... (stare at each other for a moment very, very, slowly lean over to kiss just as their lips meet, there is a nock on the door)

Ra: Ross what are you doing here?

Ro: This is my room too ya know

Ra: Oh, do you think us sharing a room was a mistake I mean it has just lead to all that happened this vacation.

Ro: No, I think there is a reason for that, it shows that even after three years we still haven't gotten over each other

Ra: Humm your probably right

Ro: And you know what I don't that we ever will

Ra: So what do you think we should do? (they are looking at each other  then they lean in and share a very passionate kiss then break breathless)
