The previous episode ends in a cliffhanger, where Ross walks in when Joe and Rachel are kissing. Rachel is the first to break the silence, saying, "I am so sorry...". When this episode begins from the moment Ross walks in it is Joey who breaks the silence. However, this is because the first few seconds of the episode are intended to be a recap and not a direct repeat of the previous episode. See more »
