[Friends Season 1x12] - The One With the Dozen Lasagnas
"The One With The Dozen Lasagnas" is the twelfth episode of the first season of Friends, which aired on January 12, 1995. this episode is shown after the Pilot
After cooking a dozen lasagnas for Aunt Sylvia, Monica is stuck with them as they were supposed to be vegetarian. Ross is acquainting himself with pregnancy-related stuff, and is psyched to learn from Carol (to whom he brings one of Monica's lasagnas) that the baby is completely healthy, but he doesn't want to learn the baby's sex. Carol and Susan, however, know it. The list of people who know the baby's sex is extended to everyone except Ross. Meanwhile, Joey and Chandler's table breaks, and they have to eat lasagna on their laps whilst deciding how to buy a new one. The two can't seem to decide upon a make, until they agree on a foosball table. Rachel is planning to go for a weekend away with Paolo, but Phoebe has a bad day at work - mostly because Paolo makes a pass on her. She tells Rachel this, and Rachel breaks up with Paolo. Meanwhile, the guys talk with Ross and make him see how now is the time to talk to Rachel about his feelings for her and start "the age of Ross".
Paolo, with the empty suitcase (after Rachel dropped all of Paolo's clothes in the street), is about to leave. Monica, while mad at him, is still stuck with several lasagnas, so she gives him one on the way out. Needless to say, Ross is gleeful of the turnout of events and sends off Paolo with style by closing the door in his face. He goes to talk to Rachel, who is on the balcony, still pretty shaken about everything. Rachel, however, is sick of guys, and is not even thinking about being with another guy. Ross tries to talk her out of this by saying that not everyone's like Paolo, to which Rachel replies how she doesn't think his boy's growing up to be one. This, of course, is the slip-out that Ross is, in fact, having a boy. Despite Monica managing to beat them solo, which lead to the guys to kick her out their apartment, Chandler and Joey are deeply enjoying the foosball table until the early hours of morning.
