4.21 The One With The Invitation

Flashbacks of Ross and Rachel’s relationship punctuate(v.强调 突出 不时打断) this episode as Ross decides to send Rachel a wedding invitation and Rachel decides she won’t be going.

Joey and Chandler, feeling like they don’t have much going on in their lives compared to their friends, try to make some big plans…

like climbing Mount Everest or at least watching some videos.

[Scene: Central Perk, Joey and Chandler are sitting and talking.]

Chandler: Y’know what? It seems like all of the suddenso much has happened.

Joey: I know. Ross is getting married.

Chandler: Phoebe is, making people.

Joey: Everybody’s doing stuff!

Chandler: And we just sit here. I mean if I diethe only way people would even know I was here would be by the ass print on this chair!

Joey: What are we doing?

Chandler: Wasting our lives.

Joey: I meant for lunch.

Chandler: Look, we have to do something. Okay? Something huge!

Joey: (snaps his fingers) We could climb Mt. Everest!

Chandler: No-no, not something stupid, something huge.

Joey: No-no-no-no-no, I saw an ad for this video, people climb that thing everyday! We could totally do that!

Chandler: Why not?! I mean it’s just, it’s just climbing! It’s just, it’s just steep!

Chandler: (dejected) Oh, well…
