Friends Season 8 DVD Set
The eighth season of the Friends TV show was aired from fall 2001 to spring 2002, continuing the long-lasting success story of America's finest TV show.
This season starts off with the revelation that Rachel is actually pregnant -- from a one-night stand with Ross. He, however, is really thrilled about Mona, a pretty woman he met at Monica and Chandler's wedding.
When Rachel misses dating, Joey offers to take her out and show her a good time. After a great date, Joey realizes that he's starting to fall for her.
Rachel looks for a new apartment so she can have her own place once the baby comes. To get over his feelings for her, Joey recommends that Rachel move in with Ross. Letting her move in with him jeopardizes Ross' relationship with Mona, though: She dumps him in turn.
Once Joey tells Ross how he feels about Rachel, Ross has trouble understanding but advises him to tell the soon-to-be mother. When he does, Rachel tells him that she doesn't feel the same way but they pledge to remain friends.
Phoebe dates several guys but as so often in her dating past has trouble finding "Mr. Right". Chandler and Monica enjoy their first months of being husband and wife. They decide to have a baby of their own.
In the final episode, Rachel gives birth to Emma Geller Green. Next to Rachel's hospital bed, Joey finds a ring that Mrs. Geller had given to Ross so that he propose to Rachel, but Ross had refused to do so. When Joey picks up the ring, Rachel mistakenly thinks he's proposing and says yes, as Ross walks down the hall with flowers.
