Storyline

Chandler and Monica plan a weekend on false work-related pretenses so they can be alone. Ross tells Rachel that Emily is coming to New York and they can't see each other anymore. On top of that, Rachel's dog Lapooh just died so she is furious and both her and Ross are inconsolable. Monica constantly demands new hotel rooms for silly reasons and Chandler can't keep his eyes from the TV. They argue, and when they return home Chandler tells Monica he thought their relationship was over. To his delight, Monica is determined to make up and continue. After a number of indelicate slips from Monica and Chandler Joey finally realizes they are involved but they swear him to secrecy. Written by KGF Vissers

Quotes

Monica: [Monica and Chandler have just dodged another near-miss with Joey] I'm *really* getting tired of sneaking around all the time!
Chandler: I know, me too. Hey, you know what: what if we went away for the whole weekend? You know, we'd have no interruptions, and... we could be naked the entire time!
Monica: [grinning like she hasn't since she first saw Chandler's "tat"] All weekend? That's a whole lotta naked!

Monica and Chandler are going to travel together!
15 June 2009 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Monica is tired to hide her relationship with Chandler, specially because there is always someone who catches them while they are doing something. They both decide to find an excuse to stay together in the weekend in another place. Monica tells the Friends about the culinary fair in New Jersey and Chandler tells them about a conference in the same place. In new Jersey, they arrive in the Hotel they are going to sleep, but instead of enjoying, they fight the entire weekend.

Ross decides that Emily will come to New York and he needs to talk to Rachel about that, since he cannot see her again. Rachel stays shocked with Ross' resolution to not stay near her anymore.

Ps: In the end of this episode, Joey discovers about Monica and Chandler.
