Joey is taking part in a fertility study and he really likes his girlfriend Melanie but can't have sex during the study which lasts another week. The friends are having a barbecue for Rachel's birthday but without Ross because he has to go to China for the museum. Rachel unwraps the gift from Ross and its an antique pin exactly like the one her grandma used to have. Chandler lets it slip that Ross is in love with Rachel. Rachel goes to the airport to speak to Ross but he's already gone. Rachel decides to give her and Ross a chance and goes to pick him up at the airport. Written by

When Rachel emerges from her room in her birthday skirt (which she got by exchanging Monica's gift to her) she removes a bottle of red wine from the refrigerator, turns and walks toward the kitchen table. She then places a bottle of white wine on the table and the red wine is now on the counter top next to the fridge. See more

I'm still on my first. I just think you're nice.
