The One with Rachel's Going Away Party is an episode in the popular long-running American Sitcom Friends. It was the 16th episode of the 10th season, and the penultimate episode of the series, preceding the hour-long special entitled "The Last One"
Meanwhile, Monica is ordering everyone to pack boxes as Monica and Chandler are moving soon. The boys play games instead and Chandler finds a pair of handcuffs in a bedroom. He wonders whom they belong to, before finding pictures of Monica's grandmother using them.
At the end of the episode, Erika, the woman carrying Monica and Chandler's baby, starts going into labour. The three of them rush off to the hospital to have a baby, which, along with Rachel and Ross kissing, is a cliffhanger leading up to the final episode.
Monica: Shouldn't you be packing? Rachel: I'm all finished. Monica: Oh, sure. And after I took a shower this morning, I just threw my towel on the floor. Oh God, it hurts to even joke about it!
Chandler: Mon, I think I know who those cuffs were for. Monica: How? Chandler: Well, I was cleaning out the closet when I found pictures of them being used. Monica: Oh, my God, let me see. Joey: Who's the dirty old lady? Chandler: Monica's grandmother. All: Wow! Monica: Whoa, Nana liked it rough!
Ross: What do I gotta do to get a goodbye? Huh? Be your best friend? Huh? Go out with you? Have a baby with you? Huh? Oh, wait a minute, wait a minute... I've done all that!
