‘The One Where Ross Hugs Rachel’

Season 6, Episode 2 -  Aired September 30, 1999

Monica and Chandler break the news to Joey and Rachel that they are moving in together. Meanwhile, Phoebe is convinced that Ross is still in love with Rachel.

Quote from Monica

Monica: This isn't something that we just impulsively decided to do in Vegas. This is something that we both really want. And it is going to happen.
Rachel: It is? Really?
Monica: Yeah, sweetie.
Rachel: You mean, we're not gonna live together anymore?
Monica: No.
Rachel: Oh, my God. I'm gonna miss you so much.
Monica: I'm gonna miss you.
Rachel: I mean, it's the end of an era!
Monica: I know!


Quote from Ross

Russell: Why don't you tell me what happened?
Ross: Basically, Rachel and I were in Vegas, and we got drunk.
Russell: I'm sorry, is this the same Rachel whose name you said at the altar in the second marriage?
Ross: Yes, yes, yes. But I do not love her.
Russell: Oh. That's better then.
Ross: This was just a drunken mistake, and I need to get it annulled.
Russell: I see. Have you considered therapy?
Ross: I think just the annulment for today.
Russell: There are a couple of forms to fill out.
Ross: Easy.
Russell: And we will need to have witnesses who can testify that you were not of sound mind.
Ross: No problem.
Russell: And we'll need you and Rachel to testify before a judge.
Ross: Ooh. There's no way to do this without her? Because I kind of already told her it was taken care of.
Russell: Of course you did. Look, Ross, you can't get an annulment unless you and Rachel are both there.
Ross: Uh-huh. What about someone who looks like Rachel? I will think about the therapy.

Quote from Ross

Russell: You got married again?
Ross: Yes.
Russell: So that's your second marriage in two years?
Ross: Yes. Second in two years. Third, overall.
Russell: Ross, I have been a divorce attorney for 23 years and never have I had so much business from one client.

Quote from Ross

Phoebe: Ross, it's not that big a deal. So you'll have been divorced three times. You'll still have a life, you'll go on dates.
Ross: No, I won't. I'll be at the bottom of the dating barrel now. The only guys below me will be Four-Divorce Guy, Murderer Guy, and geologists.

Quote from Ross

Ross: This is crazy. I mean, yes, Rachel is my good friend. And I have loved her in the past, but now, she is just my wife.

Quote from Ross

Phoebe: You didn't get the annulment?!
Ross: I know.
Phoebe: Ross.
Ross: Well, I tried, but when I got to my lawyer's office, all I could hear was: "Three divorces! Three divorces! " I just don't want my tombstone to read "Ross Geller: Three Divorces."

Quote from Phoebe

Phoebe: Don't be worried about that. Your tombstone can say whatever you want it to say. It can say, "Ross Geller: Good at Marriage." You know what? Mine's gonna say, "Phoebe Buffay: Buried Alive."

Quote from Ross

Ross: Can you just lay off, please? All right, my life is an embarrassment. I should just go live under somebody's stairs.

Quote from Rachel

Rachel: Oh, I had the worst day. You think you're finally making progress at work, then your boss calls you Raquel.
Chandler: Hey, listen, for the first four years of my work, everybody called me [babbling]. Seriously.
Rachel: I believe you. It was right in the middle of a meeting, so of course no one wants to correct her. So everyone else is calling me Raquel. By the end of the day, the mailroom guys were calling me Rocky.

Quote from Ross

Ross: See? Once you know the stories, it's not that bad. First marriage: Wife's hidden sexuality.
Not my fault. Second marriage: Said the wrong name at the altar. A little my fault. Third marriage: Well, they really shouldn't allow you to get married when you're that drunk and have writing all over your face. Nevada's fault.
