Even on honeymoon, Monica is pushy and is annoyed that Chandler wouldn't jump the queue at the airport check-in especially when the couple before them, also on honeymoon, get bumped up to first class. They try to sneak into the first class lounge, but are caught but at least she can nick an orange. Joey and Phoebe find Monica and Chandler have tricked them out of the keys of the master apartment; Joey hoped a false gas leak alert would make super Treeger use his key, but he makes a fireman use an axe and the wrecked door calls for a big lie. Rachel is finally ready to tell who the father is- the others say they already know, except daddy Ross, who thinks she just wants another passionate night with him. After blaming everything on the condom manufacturer, as he nor Joey ever read the notice they are only 97% safe, Ross promises Rachel full support and of course proposes- which she turns down as they aren't in love. She refuses to admit she won't cope on her own, although she can't ... Written by KGF Vissers

The One Where Rachel Tells...
1 September 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Rachel telling it to Ross was just hilarious. His complete shock and being unable to talk was done so well. And when it comes to condoms it is very fun as well. Of course it is unbelievable that Ross (and Joey) wouldn't know that condoms aren't 100% effective but it was great to see how he was calling the condom company to complain

The scene at the doctor's office is great as well. It is pretty funny how Rachel doesn't see the fetus but lies because she is afraid it would make he look like a bad mother

Phoebe had some great lines. "This door was like a child to them" and "This is brand new information!" were both very funny

I liked the original story of Monica and Chandler much better than what they filmed after. Too bad it had to be replaced because of 9/11
