Season 8

Friends is an American sitcom created by David Crane and Marta Kauffman which follows the lives of six friends living in New York: lovable but clueless Joey Tribbiani, spoilt rich kid Rachel Green, neurotic Monica Geller, nerdy Ross Geller, offbeat Phoebe Buffay and wise-cracking Chandler Bing.

The series aired in the USA on NBC from 22 September, 1994 to 6 May, 2004. There are 236 half-hour episodes in 10 seasons.

Friends originally aired in South Africa on M-Net, ending its run on Wednesday 6 October, 2004.

It also aired on DStv's M-Net Holiday and Sony Entertainment Television (SONY) channels.

Season 8

Clips of New York's World Trade Center were removed because of the terrorist attacks.

Rachel confirms she is pregnant but doesn't tell anyone who the father is. Joey finds a sweater that the baby’s father left at the apartment. He and Phoebe suspects that it’s Tag’s sweater, but Ross finds it and claims it as his.

Rachel informs Ross that she is pregnant and they tell everyone that they secretly slept together about a month before Chandler and Monica's wedding.

Joey starts to develop feelings for Rachel. Feeling that Ross is missing out on his fatherly duties, Joey reluctantly suggests that Rachel move in with Ross, and she does so. Joey later reveals his feelings to Rachel, who politely and emotionally rejects him. Joey is crushed but realises he must on.

After a passionate kiss with Ross, Rachel goes into labour. Ross’s mom gives Ross a ring to give to Rachel, even though Ross doesn’t want to propose to Rachel.

Rachel remains in labour for about 21 hours and gives birth to their daughter, Emma. Joey finds the engagement ring after it falls out of Ross' coat.

He bends down to pick it up. Rachel, seeing Joey on one knee with an engagement ring, thinks that he is proposing to her, and says "okay".
