MONICA: Has her water broke yet?

ROSS: I don't know, but when I spoke to her, she said she had already passed the mucous plug.

JOEY: Do we have to know about that?

MONICA: Joey, what are you gonna do when you have a baby?

JOEY: I'm gonna be in the waitin' room, handing out cigars.

ROSS: God, I don't believe this. She could be giving birth in the cab.

RACHEL: Oh, Ross, relax. It's probably like two dollars for the first contraction, and then fifty cents for each additional contraction. What, it's ok when Chandler does it?

CHANDLER: You have to pick your moments.

RACHEL: I - do not believe we've met. Hi. I'm uh Rachel Green. I'm Carol's ex-husband's sister's roommate.

FRANZBLAU: It is nice to meet you. I'm Dr. Franzblau. I'm your roommate's brother's ex-wife's obstetrician.

PHOEBE: (singing) They're tiny and chubby and so sweet to touch, and soon they'll grow up and resent you so much. Now they're yelling at you and you don't know why, you cry and you cry and you cry. And you cry and you cry and you cry... Thanks, Ross.

ROSS: Yeah. I'm paying you to stop.

CHANDLER: All right. I'll tell you what. When we're 40, if neither one of us are married, what do you say you and I get together and have one?

MONICA: Why won't I be married when I'm 40?

CHANDLER: Oh, no, no. I just meant hypothetically.

MONICA: Ok, hypothetically, why won't I be married when I'm 40?

CHANDLER: No, no, no.

MONICA: What is it? Is there something fundamentally unmarriable about me?



CHANDLER: Dear god! This parachute is a knapsack!

MONICA: Did you go home and change?

RACHEL: Yeah, well, it's an important day. I wanna look nice. Um, has uh Dr. Franzblau been by?

MONICA: No, I haven't seen him.

RACHEL: Well, where is he? He is supposed to be here. What if the baby needs him?

CHANDLER: Rachel, what is the deal with you and doctors, anyway? Was like your father a doctor?

RACHEL: Yeah, why?

CHANDLER: No reason.

ROSS: Breathe.

SUSAN: Breathe.

ROSS: Breathe.

SUSAN: Breathe.

ROSS: Breathe.

SUSAN: Breathe.

CAROL: You're gonna kill me!

CAROL: Ow, ow, ow, ow, leg cramp, leg cramp, leg cramp.

ROSS: I got it.

SUSAN: I got it.

ROSS: I got it! Hey, you get to sleep with her, I get the cramps.

JOEY: Ew! What is that? Something exploded!

NURSE: It's just her water breaking. Calm down, will you?

JOEY: Water breaking, what do you mean? What's that, water breaking?

MONICA: Now, Mom, everything's going fine, really. Yeah, Ross is great. He's uh, he's in a whole other place. No, he's gone. No no, you don't have to fly back, really. What do you mean this might be your only chance? Would you stop? I'm only 26, I'm not even thinking about babies yet.

FRANZBLAU: I try not to let my work affect my personal life, but it's hard, when you do what I do. It's like uh...Well, for instance, what do you do?

RACHEL: I'm a waitress.

FRANZBLAU: Ok, all right, well aren't there times when you come home at the end of the day, and you're just like, if I see one more cup of coffee...

RACHEL: Yeah, gotcha.

ROSS: Come on, come on. Dammit, dammit, dammit, dammit. This is all your fault. This is supposed to be like the greatest day of my life, y'know? My son is being born, and I should be in there, you know, instead of stuck in a closet with you.

SUSAN: The woman I love is having a baby today. I've been waiting for this just as much as you have.

ROSS: No no no, believe me. No one has been waiting for this as much as I have, ok? And you know what the funny thing is? When this day is over, you get to go home with the baby, ok, where does that leave me?

SUSAN: You get to be the baby's father. Everyone knows who you are. Who am I? There's Mother's Day, there's Father's Day, there's no Lesbian Lover Day.

ROSS: Every day is Lesbian Lover Day.

PHOEBE: This is so great.

ROSS: You wanna explain that?

PHOEBE: I mean, well, 'cause when I was growing up, you know my dad left, and my mother died, and my stepfather went to jail, so I barely had enough pieces of parents to make one whole one. And here's this little baby who has like three whole parents who care about it so much that they're fighting over who gets to love it the most. And it's not even born yet. It's just, it's just the luckiest baby in the whole world. I'm sorry, you were fighting.

ROSS: We got a head, we got shoulders, we got arms, we got, oh, look at the little fingers, oh, and a chest, and a stomach. It's a boy, definitely a boy! All right! Ok, legs, knees, and feet. Oh, oh. He's here. He's a person.

SUSAN: Oh, look at that.

CAROL: What does he look like?

ROSS: Kinda like my uncle Ed, covered in Jell-O.

ROSS: Ben, I want you to know that there may be some times when I may not be around, like this. But I'll still always come back, like this. And sometimes I may be away longer, like this. But I'll still always come back, like this.
