【剧情简介】

瑞秋兴冲冲去机场接罗斯,满怀期待想和他书写新篇章;但罗斯带着朱丽(华裔女孩)回国,却使她美梦破碎。

PHOEBE:Ok, so this is pretty much what's happened so far. Ross was in love with Rachel since, you know, forever, but every time he tried to tell her, something kind of got in the way, like cats, and Italian guys. Finally Chandler was like "forget about her" but when Ross was in China on his dig, Chandler let it slipthat Ross was in love with Rachel. She was like, "Oh my god." So she went to the airport to meet him when he came back, but what she didn't know was, that Ross was getting off the plane with another woman. Uh-Oh! So, that's pretty much everything you need to know. But, enough about us. So, how've you been?

CHANDLER:  No way!

MONICA:I'm telling you, she went to the airport, and she's gonna go for it withRoss!

PHOEBE:Oh my god. This is huge. This is bigger than huge. This is like, all right, what's bigger than huge?

JOEY:Um, this?

PHOEBE:Yes.

……

RACHEL:Go go go go, come on! (to Chandler) So then, well, what did you find out?

CHANDLER: He said, he said that they're having a great time. I'm sorry. But, the silver lining, if you wanna see it, is that he made the decision all by himself without any outside help whatsoever.

RACHEL:How is that the silver lining?

CHANDLER:You have to really wanna see it.
