[Chandler is freeze just smiling]
Phoebe: Oh…poor him the pregnancy thing is too much for him…
Monica: Chandler you can stop smiling now and saying something might be a good idea.
Chandler: Sorry it’s just that I’ve never realized how good would it feel to hear it from other people…
[Everyone hugs and some tears came out]
[SCENE: Central Perk: Rachel and Phoebe are sitting there]

Phoebe: Oh, Joey is going to give me a tour through the set of “Days of our lives”
Ross: So, what do you think about Monica and her pregnancy
Rachel: Oh that’s what I call a HUGE notice…
Ross: Yeah…it brings me good memories of Ben when I first knew I was about to be a father, I guess Chandler is kind of freak out , but he is going to be ok…and how about you?
Rachel: What? What about me?
Ross: Oh…come on!, aren’t you a little bit depressed about the fact that Monica is going to be a mother and you are not?
Rachel: Uhm…maybe just a little.
Ross: Well , you know that anything you need, I’m here for you so you have that in mind ok?…so all you need to do is give me a call.
Rachel: Thanks…(looks to her clock) Oh…sorry I have to go…but it was nice
talking to you.
Ross: It was nice talking to you too.
[Scene: Outside the cinema Rachel and Tag are walking]
Rachel: Why are you so strange?
Tag: I’m not strange
Rachel: Yes, you are!
Tag: No I’m not. I’m as normal as always.
Rachel: Oh…I get it… you didn’t like me to be enthusiastic about my friend’s pregnancy, right?
Tag: Well maybe that had something to do here…
Rachel: Oh, what is SO wrong about being enthusiastic?!
Tag: That I’m not sure if I ever want to have children , I’m not good with children, or all that would come at a time… and that’s all! Ok!
Rachel: So, what are you saying that just because you don’t like kids I don’t have to?…(takes a deep breathe) I’ll see you on Monday morning…goodnight…(She turns and goes to her apartment, he just looks at her without knowing what to do)
[SCENE: Ross’ apartment, Rachel it’s outside knocking at the door]
Ross: Rach…what are you doing here? Are you ok?
Rachel: Ross, I’m sorry I didn’t knew what to do, I had this terrible fight with Tag ‘cause he is totally freaked out about thinking of pregnancy and kids…and I just didn’t knew who to talk with…(starts crying, Ross hugs her)
Ross: Come on in, we’ll talk ok?
Rachel: Ok… (They enter and they sit on the couch)
Ross: So what happened?
Rachel: He got mad because I liked the idea of Monica being pregnant and then he say he was not sure if he ever wanted to have kids…and…and…(keeps crying, so Ross hugs her again)
Ross: It’s going to be ok Rach…so he thinks that now…but I think that when the right time comes and you become a mom…you’ll be with the right guy
Rachel: But Ross, what am I going to do, I mean I’m almost 30 and apart from you I haven’t had any other serious relationships! What if “the one” never comes? What if he already did?
Ross: Rach, calm down ok? Its going to be ok…things are going to work out for you…I know it…
Rach: Thanks… (she lies her head on his shoulder, Ross hugs her)
[Scene: Monica and Chandler’s…they are on the table with a notepad.]
Monica: Can you believe that less than 8 months from now we are going to have a child?

Monica: So…what do you think we should do first?
Chandler: Well, we already told the guys, so I think we have 2 more pairs of people to tell this…
Monica: Who our parents…yeah…I don’t want to…
Chandler: Come on! This is as freaky for you as it is for me…but do you see me break down? (she glares at him)…again?…no! that’s because I know I love you
Monica: OK, I’ll call them so that they can come here ok…we’ll tell them tomorrow…
