Rachel played by Jennifer Aniston and Ross played by David Schwimmer in Friends have together given us so many moments that we cherish even today. Their on-off relationship in Friends has always been a high point of the 10-season long show.
The moment when Rachel finds out about Ross’ feelings for her, the moment when they have s*x for the first time, their breakup, the whole “We were on a break” episode, and there’s so much about them that we can keep on counting but the topic will never close.
Among all the Ross & Rachel moments, there was one that really broke out hearts. We are talking about the scene when Rachel travels all the way to London to stop Ross & Emily’s wedding. And while taking his vows with Emily, Ross takes Rachel’s name. While we felt extremely bad for Emily, there was something inside us which wished for something to happen so that Ross and Rachel could reunite. But what happens is, in the next episode Rachel proposes her crush, Joshua.
But do you know, as per the script, she was supposed to propose Joshua right after Ross marries Emily? It was also shot that way but the moment made the live audience really sad. This is why the makers of Friends decided to move that scene an episode ahead so that the audience get some ‘recovery time’.
Helen Baxendale played Emily and Joshua was played by Tate Donovan in Friends.
