Scene: C&J's Ross and Joey are there. Joey's at the counter, Ross just walked in. He doesn't look happy.

Joey: What's up man?

Ross: I just got asked out by this beautiful woman, but I had to say no

Joey: (not believing this) What?! Why?!

Ross: (depressed) Because she asked me to a ballroom dance party, I can't dance to save my life! (slumps on the barka feeling sorry for himself)

Joey: (excited)Ross! you're in luck!! If you remember, I was the supers dancing partner when he was learning. I could teach you!

Ross: (thinking this over) ...I guess... (stands up and... stays there)

Joey: Okay, I haven't got any music, (claps his hands) we'll do without. Right! (he goes closer to Ross and takes his hand)

Ross: (letting go) Dude! What are you doing?

Joey: Hello! teaching you to dance!!!

Ross: (swallowing his pride) all right.

(takes Joey's hand, Ross puts his other hand on Joey's hip and Joey's other hand goes on Ross's shoulder. Chandler walks in and sees them together)

Chan: Even though it's been six years and three marriages (they break apart quickly) You'd still make a great couple...!(smiles)


Scene: C&J's. No one there, then Joey walks in with the post. Chandler walks out of his room, putting on his tie, actually, lets make that his shirt... ummmm, no back to tie. Joey's flicking through the post

Chan: anything for me?

Joey: Um.. (looks) yeah! (picks out a letter and gives it to Chandler)

Chan: huh.. it's not a bill, it's hand-written... (opens it and skims through it) Oh my God...

Joey: What's up?

Chan: (surprised) It's from Kip

Joey: What??? (snatches the letter off Chandler)

Chan: Ow!!!

Joey: (reading) Hey Chandler, Kip here. Been a long time huh? Just thought I'd drop you a line and let you know how I was. (voice over takes over, by one of my fave actors, Michael J. Fox)

Kip: Well, as you know, I'm married, our Hibachi we bought broke by the way. Um, I've got two beautiful children, Richie and Jay. I'm doing well in my job, we've moved upstate to Albany, the address is at the top of the letter if you wanna write back. Well, this was just a quick note (back to Joey)

Joey: (reading) of hello. I'd better be going now. So, how's things been with you?

(Joey looks at Chandler, Chandler's still shocked at getting the letter)

Scene: Central Perk. All the gang are there. Rachel is on the couch, Ross, Chandler, Monica and Phoebe are squashed onto the sofa, and Joey's on the wooden chair. They're all talking, but you can't hear them. voice overs are in italics

Chan: Dear kip, um, wow! nice to hear from you. It's been a long time... Well, how are you? I'm doing great. Um, where do I start? Well, I got promoted about five years ago

(cut to the scene from TOW the stoned guy, when Joey, Chandler and Ross are in C&J's apartment.)

Joey: Hey Chandler, while you were sleeping that guy from your old job called again.

Chandler: Again?

Joey: And again, and again, and again... (phone rings, he answers) Hello? (hands phone to Chandler) And again.

Chandler: (on phone) Hey Mr. Kostelic! How's life on the fifteenth floor? (Listens) Yeah, I miss you too. (Listens) Yeah, it's a lot less satisfying to steal pens from your own home, you know? (Listens) Well, that's very generous (Listens) er, but look, this isn't about the money. I need something that's more than a job. I need something I can really care about.... (Listens) And that's on top of the yearly bonus structure you mentioned earlier? (Listens) Look, Al, Al... I'm not playing hardball here, OK? This is not a negotiation, this is a rejection! (Listens) No! No! No, stop saying numbers! I'm telling you, you've got the wrong guy! You've got the wrong guy! (Listens) I'll see you on Monday! (slams the phone down)

(back to Central Perk.)

Chan: And for some reason I still work there... The apartment is doing well. Your rooms being rented by Joey Tribianni. did you see him in Days of our Lives? I didn't intend to take Joey, but, well. You remember Mr. Heckles, he scared off Eric, the model photographer with a porn star sister

(cut to: scene in TOW the flashback. Eric is taking his stuff into Chandlers apartment. Mr. Heckles is there in the hallway)

Mr. Heckles: (to Eric) Who are you?

Eric: Hi, I’m Eric, I’m gonna be Chandler’s new roommate.

Mr. Heckles: I’m Chandler’s new roommate.

Eric: I-I-I don’t think so.

Mr. Heckles: I could be Chandler’s new roommate.

Eric: But, he told me over the phone.

Mr. Heckles: He told me in person.

Eric: That’s weird.

Mr. Heckles: Well, I’m going to go into my new apartment now. (goes over to the door and opens it) Ehh! (Eric leaves)

(inside Chandler’s apartment, Chandler is coming in from his bedroom, sees Mr. Heckles, and screams.)

cut back to Central Perk. Chandler gives Monica a kiss on the cheek and they all laugh.

Mon: So did you tell him about us?

Chan: of course I did! Us and our up and down bumpy ride of a relationship.

Mon: Our relationship is a bumpy ride?

(Everyone looks at each other and burst into laughter)

(Cut to: TOW Phoebe hates PBS, Mon and Chan are in C&J's apartment)

Chandler: Well I just, thought maybe you'd wanna book some time with the best you'd ever had.

Monica: Y'know what, champ? I think I'll pass.

Chandler: Why?

Monica: Why? (She hops into the living room and imitates Chandler's happy dance.)

Chandler: What's your point?

Cut to: TOW all the kips. M&R's Mon and Chan are there.

Chandler: So, I guess this is over.

Monica: What?

Chandler: Well, y'know, you and me, it had to end sometime.

Monica: Why, exactly?

Chandler: Because of the weekend, we had a fight.

Monica: Chandler that's crazy! If you give up every time you'd have a fight with someone you'd never be with anyone longer than—Ohhh! (They both realise something there.)

Chandler: So, this isn't over?

Monica: (laughs) You are so cute! No. No, it was a fight. You deal with it and move on! It's nothing to freak out about.

Chandler: Really? Okay. Great!

Monica: Ohh, welcome to an adult relationship! (She goes to kiss him.)

Chandler: (stops her) We're in a relationship?

Cut to: TOW the girl who hits Joey. M&R's everyone is there, Chandler is standing up with Monica

Chandler: Okay, I've been doing a lot of thinking about us, y'know a lot of uhh, us thinking. And uh, well I guess there's only one-one way to do this. (He slowly and awkwardly gets down on one knee.)

Monica: Wait what-wh-wh-what are you doing?!

Chandler: (getting out a ring box) Monica…

Monica: No-no, don't-don't-don't do it!

Chandler: Will you marry me?

(Phoebe hides her eyes in shame. Rachel is starring at them wide-eyed and open-mouthed. Joey and Ross are stunned to temporary silence.)

Ross: Oh-no. No. No.

Joey: What a bad idea!

Rachel: Ohhhh, I cannot look at it! (She doesn't move.)

Cut to: TOW Rachels inadvertent kiss. The mens room, Mon and Chan are there

Chandler: Y'know what I just realised? You just freaked out about our relationship.

Monica: Did not.

Chandler: Yes you did! Admit it! You freaked out!

Monica: Okay, I freaked out a little.

Chandler: Little?! You freaked out big time! Okay? And I fixed it! We have switched places! I am the relationship and king and you are the crazy, irrational screw up! (Does a dance of joy.) (Monica glares at him.) And now we're back.

RACHEL: Oh. Oh my god.

MONICA: Honey, wait. We only did it once. It didn't mean anything to me.

RACHEL: Yeah, right.

MONICA: Really, Rachel, I was thinking of you the whole time. Look, I'm sorry, all right. I never meant for you to find out.

RACHEL: Oh, please, you wanted to get caught.

MONICA: That is not true!

RACHEL: Oh, so you just sort of happened to leave it in here?

MONICA: Did it ever occur to you that I might just be that stupid?

MONICA: Quit flicking [flicks]

RACHEL: Ow, you stop flicking.

MONICA: You flicked me first.

CHANDLER: Alright, so what's it about?

JOEY: Eggs. Who's eggs do you like better, his or mine, huh?

CHANDLER: Well I like both eggs equally.

JOEY: Oh come on. Nobody likes two different kinds of eggs equally. You like one better than the other and I wanna know which.

Joey: What are you talking about?! I'm the lead in a movie!

Chandler: They're not even paying ya! This doesn't even sound like a real movie!

Joey: Y'know what? I don't need this! Okay? I don't know why you're dumping all over my big break.

Chandler: Joe, I don't think this is going to be your big break.

Joey: Is that why you're on this trip, huh? Make me feel like a loser? 'Cause if it is, I'll tell ya, I-I-I'd rather be alone.

Chandler: Oh, you don't want me on the trip?

Joey: Not if you're gonna be like this!

Chandler: All right, I'll tell ya what, the next time you ask me a question like that I'll lie.

Joey: Yeah! I don't want you on the trip!

Chandler: All right, fine! Fine! Why don't you pull over? I'll get out right now!

Joey: Fine! (He slams on the brakes, stopping the car on the bridge to the sound of numerous car horns.) Get out!
