I always get second hand embarrassment for Rachel in TO in Barbados, when she laughs at “homo” during Ross’ speech. It makes me cringe. Ugh, I hate what they reduced her to, during that stupid Joey/Rachel arc.
“The One Where Jetlag Wins” or really, the table draft of 10×15: “The One Where Estelle Dies.”
In the commentary for “The One Where Estelle Dies”, the executive producers recalled throwing out a Ross/Rachel story (where they went to Paris to consider Rachel’s move) and putting in a new one after the table read. This one being about Ross’s attempts to keep Rachel from leaving. The table draft features the original story.
Well, um, actually, I took her to the planetarium. That’s where we had our first date. Um, she walked in and I had the room filled with lilies, her favorite flower. Then, Fred Astaire singing ‘The Way You Look Tonight’ came on the sound system, and the lights came down. And I got down on one knee and written across the dome in the stars were the words “Will you marry me?”
Yes, this is 2014 calling, we still have no explanation as to why Rachel + Joey happened.
MATTHEW PERRY: "I find myself sort of reminiscing about how much fun the show was, and the hours that we worked. You know, you can see how much we laughed and everything. And I found myself saying, ‘If I had a time machine, I would like to go back to 2004 and not have stopped.”
