Monica & Chandler they are surrounded by babies and they want to have their own as soon as possible. they try to have sex ASAP wherever they can find a place. they end up doing it, and its like [monica] 'do u realize we could be having out first baby right now?'
Phoebe & Joey PHeebs meets a hot guy named Cliff in the hospital. [he has a broken leg] she asks for his room number in the elevator but b4 she gets it the doors close. Joey then pretends to be a doctor [with his experience from Dr Drake Ramorey] and gets his room number for Pheebs. In the end, it doesnt work out, and Phoebe is left to be conforted by Joey.
The last and biggest plotline... RACH & ROSS Rach had requested a private room, but they dont have ne available so she is stuck in a semi private room with, YUP YOU GuESSED IT, JANICE!!!

Ross- Listen, Rachel and i have been off and on and off and on and off and on again, and if we were to get together and then brake up, i cant bare to do that to Emma... Phoebe- I know, you could loose a lot, but... you may get everything you've ever wanted since you were 15...

NBC Promo USA Airdate: May 16, 2002 * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * MATERNITY WARD TURNS INTO HOUSE OF PAIN AS RACHEL GOES INTO LABOR IN ONE-HOUR SEASON FINALE -- In the one-hour season finale, Rachel's (Jennifer Aniston) long-awaited baby nears delivery in a maternity ward with an anxious Ross (David Schwimmer) hovering nearby, but while numerous other pregnant women are wheeled in and out, Rachel is caught in endless labor hell -- and her waiting friends are causing havoc in the hospital. An inspired Chandler (Matthew Perry) and Monica (Courteney Cox Arquette) grope about for a private room in a quest to obtain their own future baby while Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow) briefly bumps into a handsome patient (guest star Eddie McClintock) -- allowing Joey (Matt LeBlanc) to pose as his "Dr. Drake Ramoray" soap character in an effort to screen him for Phoebe. Christina Pickles and Maggie Wheeler guest-star.
Oh, I know...I should tell you, shouldn't I? I mean about that "ring" that one of the official sites has posted up as a teaser..."Ross and a 'ring'," I wonder what that could mean. But, I won't. You never know about teasers...
That's probably all you need to know. And, I'll recap the show, after it airs...so...you'll know soon enough. It's like only 3 days, take a few hours here and there...so...
Is it the right time yet? Has this aired all through the USA? Well, I'll chance it.
The Ross & The Ring (The last 5 minutes that you've been waiting for)
Okay...continuing where Lyss left off...
Previously...(near the first of the episode)...Ross' Mum comes to the hospital to persuade Ross to at least ask Rachel to marry him. She has even brought Ross' Grandmother's engagement ring (which is already in a small ring box). Ross didn't think it would be right. (Remember, Rachel hasn't exactly been acting nice nor has she really given any signs that she wants Ross. Ross, in his Rossy way just doesn't want to be rejected by Rachel). Ross' Mum continues badgering him...and...Ross gives in to keeping the box in his coat pocket. He'd "think" about it.
And this is the last 5 minutes of the show:
Rachel is very depressed because she "hinted" to Ross about maybe there is more to their relationship previously. ("Ross, before we came here....that kiss we shared...that was really something...") and Ross being Ross...just didn't jump on that. So, Rachel has been crying immensely believing that Janice's previous experience is what is going to happen to her..Ross will eventually find someone else and have a real family and she will be left with baby Emma.
Who walks in but, Joey. Joey, ever the kindest of hearts, asks what is wrong and Rachel says how she will be left all alone and she just didn't think about that. Joey asks about Ross...and Rachel says that he will eventually get his own family and she will be without anybody. Joey reassures her...no...that won't happen. He will be there for her. Gives her a reassuring big hug, like a brother would, and kisses her on the top of her head.
Meanwhile Ross has been given the "pep talk" by Pheebes, goes to get some flowers for Rachel (so we, the audience, believe that he will propose) and is on his way over to get what he always wanted since he was 15.
Rachel, feeling a little better, asks Joey to get another box of tissues for her. And the new tissues are under Ross' coat. Joey does so, however, upon moving Ross' coat, a small box falls out of the coat pocket. Joey very curiously gets on bended knee to look what's in the box. He picks up the small box and opens it. "Oh my God..." Joey says as he sees this gorgeous engagement ring.
Rachel waiting, attempts to ask again for her tissues because she has been crying again..."Joey..."
Joey turns, still on bended knee, with the engagement ring in the open box in full view of Rachel. "Oh my God..." says Rachel....(dramatic pause) "Okay..."
Joey has this look of fright/horror....
Cut to Ross walking up the hall towards Rachel's room, flowers in hand. (And there was this song playing that said..."Three's a crowd....")
Intro…R&R are not having the most memorable moment in the hospital because they have seen ladies come and go, but, not Rachel, she's still waiting. A frustrated Rachel rants to the nurse, however, the nurse calmly says, "I don't think the next person is very far along…"
"Okay, then bring her in," says Rachel
While Ross & Rachel are distracted with each other, Janice is wheeled in by a nurse.
"Oh….my….God!" says a very nasally Janice as the wheelchair is paused for Janice to see R&R. Then she gleefully claps her hands. As the wheelchair is pushed by the nurse to the other side of the room. The camera focusses on R&R as they freeze.
Break…..for commercial…you must continue visiting this board during the summer…
The scene reopens with R&R frozen. Paralyzed with an "Oh my god" look of their own. Meanwhile Janice is waiting in her wheelchair and is facing R&R.
"I…can't…believe…this!" says Janice.
R&R turn and face Janice. Ross says, "And yet…somehow….it's true.." Rachel smiles weakly.
"I mean this is great!!!" says Janice, "We're gonna be baby buddies" and laughs excited.
Ross whispers to Rachel, "Squeeze your legs together and cover the baby's ears!"
In comes Sid with a pillow for Janice. "Hi ya sweetie," says Sid.
"Hi…hi…sweetheart," coos Janice, then says very quickly, "This is my husband Sid…I don't think you met him…Ross, Rachel, This is Sid."
Ross & Sid shake hands as Janice continues, "I nabbed him a year ago at the dematologist's office. Thank god for adult acne!" then she laughs.
"I still can't believe it!" says Sid, "I'm the luckiest guy in the world!"
"Really?" says Ross
"What did he say?" asks Sid to Janice.
"You know what," says Janice towards R&R, "You have to speak very loudly when you're talking to Sid, 'cause he's almost completely deaf."
At the same time Rachel says, "Oh of course he is" while Ross says, "Oh, there you go."
Janice wheels herself over towards Rachel's bed, "So…congratulations you two, I didn't even know you were married…"
"Oh we didn't get married," replies Rachel.
"Oh no, no, " Ross says, "We're just having this baby together…but…uh…that's all"
"Why?!" says Janice
"Well, um….We're not…in that place" says Ross, "But…we're very excited about this"
"Oh…." Says Janice, "Well then, shut me up." She adds with a laugh.
"Just tell me how" Rachel says very softly.
"Uh oh..." interrupts Janice, not hearing a word Rachel has said, "I feel another one coming." She starts making a very nasally noise to try to get over the pain.
"Sid you lucky deaf bastard!" whispers Ross.
Dissolve over to Monica/Chandler who have found an empty adjacent room to R&R. As they try to get into the romantic mood...all of a sudden they hear...
"Ah ha-ha-ha-ha-ha" faintly off stage.
Monica/Chandler freeze horrified.
"Does that sound like Janice?" asks Monica
"If it's not, then there's 2 of them," says Chandler, "And that would mean it's the end of the world!!!" Curious, they stop what they are doing and go to check on R&R.
In the meantime, the curtain has been drawn to separate the room into 2. Monica & Chandler walk into R&Rs room and after a short chitchat, Chandler says, "It's the weirdest thing" (little thought pause) "Did I hear?"
He doesn't get to complete that thought aloud, because the curtain is moved back by the nurse to reveal...
"Mother of God!" gasps Chandler, "It's true!!!"
"Chandler Bing!" smiles Janice as she laughs.
"J-J-Janice" Chandler stammers with a phony smile.
"Not just Janice," says Ross, "But Janice in labor. Contracting...and everything!"
"Oh..." says Janice, "This should be easy! I have a very wide pelvis. She pauses, twists the edges of her blanket and adds, "You remember...Chandler?"
Chandler shakes his head. And, he starts walking over to Janice as he says, "Janice, I didn't know you were pregnant. Who's the unwitting human who's essence you've stolen?"
Janice feigns thinking. Then says, "It's You!!!" she points at Chandler. Then she points to her abdomen and adds, "This is yours!!!"
Chandler looks in back of him hoping some other guy "victim" is in back of him, but there isn't. Feeling very messed up by this new revelation by Janice, Chandler very upset says, "What!!!"
Janice laughs, "Look how nervous he gets!!! We haven't slept together in years!!!"
Chandler pretends to laugh, "That's funny!"
Then his expression changes as well as his smile disappears as he says, "Does it hurt?....Does the labor hurt!?"
I never would have even searched for a message board like this if it hadn't been for the season finale tonight. I was searching for people's opinions on how it ended. I, personally, wish I hadn't watched it. Now all I'll do over the summer is wonder how in the world this is going to work out when next season begins. I did not like the ending. It resembled a soap opera too much. "Friends" has done a good job of avoiding that stereotypical soap opera ending until tonight. I love Joey, but 9 out of every 10 people that have ever watched "Friends" want Ross and Rachel together.
I just can't help but wonder how this will work out. I don't think Joey's the kind of guy that would actually use an engagement ring that another man bought to marry someone. So I'm pretty sure Joey will explain that he wasn't serious and it wasn't his ring. But I'm pretty sure Ross will see it, take it the wrong way, and things will be weird until the season finale of the ninth season when Ross and Rachel will finally get together for the last time. At least that's what I'm hoping for. I shouldn't let a television sitcom bother me, but this one really has. Oh well.

Monica &&&&"Hey, just so you know: it's *not* that common, it *doesn't* "happen to every guy," and it *is* a big deal!~Rachel&&"you know if we were in prison, you were like my bitches"~Phoebe
One of their most controversial endings, I'm sure. And just so you know, everybody (this is in real life, as we were watching this as it aired) walked out on me the moment, Rachel said, "Okay..." (and no, she didn't say it like, "Ohhh kay?" as in "What do you think you're doing, this is kinda strange...")
Okay, the Highlight Reality Check is posted in a previous post. So...happy reading. And the HRC is the funny parts of the show, you know, the parts that people laughed at (and no I didn't force them to) when they viewed the scenes cold (seeing it only the first time).
Feel free to comment about this if you want to...and, I'll be glad to forward your comments to other boards.
