The One Where Rachel Finds Out
22 October 2007 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

This is the last episode of the Friend's first season, and also one of the coolest and most exciting! Joey gets a job in a fertility study as a sperm donor. The work is obviously peaceful and without any big worries, but he is forbidden to have intercourse with any women until the study ends.

It's Rachel's birthday and Monica is doing a barbecue to celebrate her birthday, but Ross needs to go to China for the museum. (And he is going to stay 1 week there)

When Rachel is opening her birthday gifts, Chandler accidentally tells Rachel that Ross is in love with her. Rachel stays worried and wants to talk with Ross, but it is already late.

The episode ends with Rachel thinking about Ross and decided to try to have something with him. She is in the airport waiting for him, but he is with an unknown Asian girl.
