(Rachel wakes up to a white lily and a note. It said:)
Ross: [Good morning. I can't wait to marry you.]
Rachel: Aw. He's so sweet. Ah, thank God this rock is big.

(opening credits)

(We enter Monica and Chandler's apartment. Exactly two hours before the wedding. Monica, Phoebe are dressed and help out Rachel get ready. Monica yells at someone on the phone while Phoebe helps Rachel get ready. Phoebe fixes Rachel's hair in the jikoni on the meza, jedwali and Joey and Chandler walk in dressed in nice tuxes.)
Chandler: Who was that?
Monica: Stupid guest.
Rachel: Uh, Mon, I really don't think It's a good idea for wewe to be screaming at my guests.
Monica: Oh, don't worry It's from me and Ross' side of the family.
Chandler: And that's better?
Joey: Well today's your big siku Rach. What time is the wedding gonna start?
(Phoebe Rachel Monica and Chandler look at Joey.)
Joey: I'm just kidding!
(They all look away.)
Joey: (whispers to Chandler) Seriously, what time will it be?
Chandler: ::Rolls eyes:: Okay, since your officiating, be at the alter before six thirty. wewe hear that Joe? The neno muhimu here is be-fore. Before six thirty.
Chandler: So anyway, uh is there anything we can help wewe guys with? Nothing girly I beg you, I don't want another repeat of what happened last time. There were things in hair and places and oh.. the places..
Rachel: Um, actually can wewe guys take care of Emma for a while? Just watch her and take her to the bathroom if she needs to go. Stuff like that.
Chandler and Joey: Yeah. Sure.
Monica: Oh, and my parents are gonna take the twins down to The Plaza.
Chandler: Oh, Okay. wewe want us to take her down to the plaza too?
Rachel: Yes, that'd be great. She's taking a nap right now with the twins and all her stuff is on the rocking chair. When wewe bring her down there bring her into our suite. Uh, what is it Mon? 302. Oh, and I also don't want another repeat of what happened last time wewe guys took care of her. She came nyumbani with a condom in her pocket and went around asking everyone: "How wewe doin'?"
Chandler and Joey: Sorry.

(As they walk towards the twins bedroom to get Emma the scene fades away. Then we come to Ross' apartment and we find Ross with Ben in tuxes. The audience oohs.)
Ross: We look smooth don't we Ben?
Ben: I know I do, but wewe don't.
Ross: Ha. Well wewe know what you're doing for the wedding right? You'll be helping Emma walk down the aisle. She'll be throwing the flowers and you'll be holding the--
Ben: --Rings yeah I know dad. We've gone over this so many times this conversation is starting to make the dinosaurs sound young.
Ross: Well, wewe know wewe only get married once. Technically that's not my case, but this is the last time I'm planning to get married. I want it to be perfect. I want it to be right.
Ben: I know. wewe alisema that another million times too.
Ross: Ha, uh, when your older you'll understand. Now I just have to find the rings....Where'd I put them? Do wewe know where I put them?
Ben: Nope.
Ross: Maybe I left them in the bedroom....?
No there not there either...Let me call Chandler.
(Ross takes out cell phone and calls Chandler. rings twice before he picks up. They are at the coffee house.)
Chandler: Chandler speaking.
Ross: hujambo Chandler, do wewe know where the wedding rings are?
Chandler: Oh my God! First the engagement ring now this? Uh...Hold on I'm coming over. (hangs up phone)
Chandler: Come on Joe we gotta help Ross.
Joey: But what about---
Chandler: Whatever it is just leave it here we'll take care of it later.
Joey: Are wewe sure I mean--
Chandler: Yes! I'm sure! Now Come on!
(Chandler walks out the door. Joey approaches the door and looks back.)
Joey: Bye Emma!
( She waves. Audience ooohs. Someone picks up Emma)

(We fade into Ross' apartment and Chandler and Joey walk in..)
Ross: Hey.
Chandler: Ok so where'd wewe have it last?
Ross: I think they were on the nightstand in the bedroom.
Chandler: Okay we'll start there.
(They all walk into the bedroom. [[If wewe can't picture the bedroom, picture the episode "The last one" Where Ross and Rachel have sex.]] They tafuta the bedroom thoroughly and find nothing.)
Chandler: So it's not here... Well review what wewe did last night after the bachelor party.
Joey: That was one heck of a time huh guys?
Chandler: Now is not the time Joe. But it was a heck of a time..
(Joey Grins)
Chandler: So what did wewe do last night exactly, after the bachelor party?
Ross: Well, I left Joey's place and I remember coming back here. I think...I came back into the bedroom..Rach and Emma were there..Emma was sleeping...and me and Rach..we uh..ahem...yeah.
(Joey smiles)
I woke up this morning I went down to the coffee shop, did a few errands and came back here. Rachel was already gone. Then I rested for a couple of dakika and then I picked up Ben from Carol's and came back here to get ready.
Chandler: Hm....Interesting..
Joey: Very interesting....
Chandler: So wewe are sure wewe didn't do anything with the rings last night?
Ross: Well if I did I probably don't remember...
Chandler: Oh that's great of help.
Ross: Come on guys I really need some help here. The wedding is in less than two hours. I need to be at The Plaza in a half hour.
Chandler: Okay, wewe go to the Plaza and Joe and I will look for them. This is your wedding day. The only thing wewe need to be worried about is getting married. I'm the best man. I'm supposed to be worrying about everything.
Ross: Okay. I'll see wewe guys soon. Please find it. I need those rings au Rachel will kill me.
Chandler: Yeah, even if she doesn't kill you, Monica certainly will.
Ross: Uh...
(Ross leaves. Chandler looks around and then frantically looks around the apartment and then looks and Joey.)
Chandler: Where's Emma?
Joey: wewe told me to leave her.
Chandler: No I didn't!
Joey: Uh, yeah wewe did! I asked wewe what about and then wewe alisema to just leave it there.
Chandler: Well I didn't think wewe were talking about Emma! Why did wewe even ask? Of course wewe bring Emma!
Joey: Well I wasn't sure if we were supposed to bring her!
Chandler: Of course wewe bring her! wewe don't leave a two year-old toddler at a coffee house! Come on we gotta get down there!!!
(They both frantically run out of the apartment.)

(We come back to Monica and Chandler's apartment. Rachel comes out of the bathroom in deep shock. Her hair is half up and half down but curled. Makeup is done and she is dressed in an elegant white dress. Simple yet chic.)
Phoebe: Uh Rachel...You look so beautiful.
Rachel: Uh-huh..
(Rachel walks towards the kitanda and sits down wrapping her arms around her stomach. Phoebe walks over and sits down inayofuata to her and rubs her back)
Phoebe: wewe okay sweetie?
Rachel: I don't know..
Phoebe: Does your stomach hurt? Is it wedding jitters? Your probably just nervous. I went through the same thing. To be honest, I was so nervous I thought when I would walk down the aisle the snow would turn yellow. Everyone gets nervous before their wedding. We all do its like--
Rachel: I'm pregnant.
Phoebe: What?
Rachel: I'm pregnant.
Phoebe: Oh my God. Are wewe sure?
Rachel: Yeah I just took a test. Its positive.
Phoebe: But how do wewe know?
Rachel: All week I've been feeling and seeing signs. I just never told wewe guys about it..I went to the doctors yesterday. I left really early in the morning. He told me that I was pregnant, but he wanted me to take two tests to make sure. I took one last night which alisema it was negative. I was still in doubt so I planned to take the sekunde one in the morning. I didn't have time until five dakika ago. And it came out positive. He thinks I've been pregnant for almost two weeks now.
Phoebe: Oh my God.
(Monica comes into the living room and hangs up the phone.)
Monica: What's wrong Rach?
(Rachel with arms still wrapped around her stomach looked at Phoebe then looked down.)
Phoebe: She doesn't want to marry Ross anymore.
Monica: What!?!
Rachel: Phoebe!!
Monica: Yes. She is starting to believe that Ross is gay.
Rachel: Pho-ebe!
Monica: Come on guys, what's going on?
Phoebe: Rachel's pregnant.
Monica: What? How?
Phoebe: wewe see Monica, when two people really upendo each-
Monica: I-I wasn't finished. How do wewe know?
Rachel: I just took a test.
Monica: It might be a false positive.
Phoebe: No, her doctor told her when she went for a check up that she was pregnant. She took a different test last night and it was negative but this morning it was positive. The doctor thinks she has been pregnant for almost two weeks now.
Monica: So your really pregnant?
Rachel: Uh-huh...
Monica: Wait Ross doesn't know does he?
Rachel: No. I don't want to tell him until after the wedding.
Phoebe: So are wewe planning to use the baby as your wedding gift to Ross au what?
(Rachel and Monica stare at Phoebe.)
Phoebe: What? It's just a suggestion..

(We enter the Coffee house. Chandler and Joey rush in through the door. They scan the coffee house in panic. Chandler runs around the duka with Joey behind him.)
Chandler: Is she here?!? Is she here?!? Gunther?!? GUNTHER!?!
Gunther: (pops up from under the counter) Yeah?
Chandler: Oh! Jeez. Uh is Emma here?
Gunther: Uh, yeah. Why the hell are wewe doing leaving a three year-old at a coffee shop. AND it's Rachel's baby!
Chandler: Just blame it on Joey. Where is she?
Gunther: In the back.
(Chandler runs into the back room. Joey waits on the kitanda for Chandler to come out. He searches through his koti, jacket pockets and finds two wedding rings. He looks at them for a minute.)
Joey: Eh.
(Joey puts both the rings back into his koti, jacket pocket. Chandler comes out carrying Emma.)
Chandler: All right Emma, were not going to talk about this to mommy right? Because if wewe told her, then wewe wouldn't be seeing me au uncle Joey anymore. Ready Joe?
Joey: Yeah.
(They walk out the doors.)

(We come back to Monica and Chandler's apartment. apartment. Ross walks in and searches the house for the rings. He starts to call out Monica's name.)

Ross: Mon! Mon?

(He goes into the bedroom first. He looks in the twins room. Then he notices that the bathroom door is slightly closed. He knocks first then goes inside. He looks in but no one is there. He then notices something on the ground. It was a pregnancy test box. Open and no test inside. He then looks around the bathroom for the test. He looks kwa the garbage and finds it kwa the side of the toilet. He picks it up on the good side and it says "Pregnant." He then looks up and throws it in the garbage. He stares at nothing for a moment.)

Ross: Oh my God.

For years the networks have tried to re-create the success of Marafiki kwa making pilot after pilot about beautiful twenty-somethings living together in New York. Beautiful twenty-somethings living in Los Angeles. Beautiful twenty-somethings investigating sexy child murders in Miami. This template never works, because executives refuse to realize that Marafiki was the exception, not the rule.

The first time I read this, I thought “this is so true.” The zaidi I looked at it, the zaidi I disagreed, at least on the implication that Marafiki in itself made everything else mediocre. Writers of the...
