Quotes

Judy Geller: [Judy is pressuring Ross to marry Rachel] This isn't just some girl you picked up in a bar and... humped. A child should have a family.
Dr. Ross Geller: Mom, you know what? I can't deal with this right now. I'm sorry...
Judy Geller: Just think about it. If you don't, I'll talk more about humping.

The baby finally is coming!
23 April 2009 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Ross is surprised and irritated that everybody arrived in the hospital before him. Rachel is mad that the hospital doesn't have any private room for her, so she will need to share a room with other woman. Since the baby is already coming, she cannot change the hospital anymore. Rachel takes hours in labor until her baby finally comes, and many other couples have their children before her, making her to stay angry and exhausted. Even Janice, who comes to her room way later , has her baby first.

Monica gives Chandler the idea of them have a baby, but first she was just joking with him, later, they decide to really try to have a kid, since he agreed.

Judith,Ross' mom, gives Ross his grandmother's wedding ring. She wants Ross to propose to Rachel, since she thinks the baby needs a family. Ross is against the idea and saves the ring in his jacket.

Phoebe is interested in one of the hospital's patients, and she asks Joey to help her to see if he is worthwhile or not. Joey dresses himself as Dr Drake Ramoray to help her, doing a lot of questions to see if the guy is married, if he likes certain things,etc.
