FRIENDS Script


Title: The Cheesecake


1. Chandler: Ohh. Mmm.

2. Rachel: Hi.

3. Chandler: Hey, you have got to try this cheesecake.

4. Rachel: Oh, y’know I'm not that much of a sweet tooth. I — Wow. My God, so creamy. Oh my God, this is the best cheesecake I have ever had. Where did you get this?

5. Chandler: It was at the front door. When I got home. Somebody sent it to us.

6. Rachel: Chandler, this is not addressed to you. This is addressed to Mrs. Braverman downstairs. Ahhhhh….Thief!

7. Chandler: I—no! I didn't read the box before I opened it. And you can't return a box after you've opened the box.

8. Rachel: Why, why not?

9. Chandler: Because it's too delicious.

10. Rachel: Chandler, you stole this cheesecake. That is wrong.

11. Chandler: No-no-no! It is going to be okay, because Mrs. Braverman is gonna send away for a free one and that way we all win! The only losers are the big cheesecake conglomerate, Momma’s Little Bakery. I feel terrible, I’m a horrible, horrible, horrible person.

12. Rachel: Oh, I’m sorry, what?

…………………………………………………………………

13. Rachel: Hi!

14. Chandler: Another cheesecake came! They delivered it to the wrong address again!

15. Rachel: So just bring it back downstairs, what’s the problem?

16. Chandler: I can’t seem to say goodbye.

17. Rachel: Are you serious? Chandler, we ate an entire cheesecake two days ago and you want more?

18. Chandler: Well I’ve forgotten what it tastes like okay?

19. Rachel: It was cheesecake. It was fine. It had a buttery, crumbly, graham cracker crust, with a very rich yet light, cream cheese filling… Wow! My whole mouth just filled with saliva!

20. Chandler: Y’know what? Forget it! We are just hungry! We have not had lunch! We are just light-headed! So let us go out and have lunch and forget about the cheesecake.

21. Rachel: Yeah and we’ll drop it off downstairs so that we’re not tempted.

22. Chandler: Good idea. Where do you want to go to lunch?

23. Rachel: Momma’s Little Bakery, Chicago, Illinois.

…………………………………………………………………

24. Chandler: Well, thank you for lunch.

25. Rachel: What? Wait a minute, I didn’t pay, I thought you paid!

26. Chandler: So apparently we just don’t pay for food anymore. Do you see what I see?

27. Rachel: It’s still there!

28. Chandler: Mrs. Braverman must be out.

29. Rachel: She could be out of town. Maybe she’ll be gone for months.

30. Chandler: By then, the cheesecake may have gone bad. We don’t want her to come back to bad cheesecake.

31. Rachel: No that could kill her.

32. Chandler: Well, we don’t want that.

33. Rachel: No, so we’re protecting her.

34. Chandler: But we should take it.

35. Rachel: But we should move quick.

36. Chandler: Why?

37. Rachel: Because I think I just heard her moving around in there.

38. Chandler: Go! Go! Go! Go! Go! Go! Go! Go! Go! Go!

…………………………………………………………………

39. Rachel: Oh my God! That is so good!

40. Chandler: I’m full, and yet I know if I stop eating this, I’ll regret it.

41. Joey: Hey!

42. Rachel: Hey!

43. Joey: What do you got there?

44. Rachel: Oh it’s umm, it’s tofu cake. Do you want some?

…………………………………………………………………

45. Chandler: Are you eating the cheesecake without me?

46. Rachel: Mm-mmm.

47. Chandler: I will give you a hundred dollars to whistle right now.  How can you eat the cheesecake without me?!

48. Rachel: Oh, what are you going to do?! Are you gonna go run tell Monica?! Are you gonna tell Joey?! No! Because then you will have to tell them what we did! We are dessert stealers! We are living outside the law!

49. Chandler: Y’know what? I don’t trust you with this cake anymore! And I got it first, and I’m takin’ it back!

50. Rachel: What?! What?!

51. Chandler: Oh yes!

52. Rachel: Wait a minute!

53. Chandler: Oh yes!

54. Rachel: Oh no-no-no-no-no, no you don’t!

55. Chandler: Oh yes! Oh yes!

56. Rachel: You think I trust you with it?! No! We’re gonna split it! You take half and I take half!

57. Chandler: Well that’s not fair, you’ve already had some!

58. Rachel: What? Oh, well then y’know what? I think Monica would be very interested to know that you called her cheesecake dry and mealy.

59. Chandler: What do we use to split it?

…………………………………………………………………

60. Rachel: Okay! All right, pick a half.

61. Chandler: Okay well, this side looks bigger. Uh… There’s more crust on this side. Y’know? So, maybe if I measured…

62. Rachel: Oh for God sake just pick a piece!

63. Chandler: All right, I’ll pick that one.

64. Rachel: That’s also the smaller piece.  Okay, there you go. Enjoy your half my friend, but that is it. No sharing. No switching, and don’t come crying to me if you eat your piece too fast. Oh!!!!

65. Chandler: Ohhh!

66. Rachel: Okay, you gotta give me some of your piece.

67. Chandler: Oh-ho-ho-ho-no! No! No switching! No sharing, and don’t come crying to me! Ha-ha-ha! I may just sit here and have my cake all day! Just sit here in the hallway and eat my…

…………………………………………………………………

68. Rachel: Oh! Yay! Look! There’s a piece that doesn’t have floor on it!

69. Chandler: Stick to your side!

70. Rachel: Hey, come on now!

71. Joey: All right, what are we havin’
