Friends Episode 602 - The One Where Ross Hugs Rachel
Phoebe yells at Ross for not getting the annulment but decides not to tell Rachel. The realization of a third failed marriage drives Ross crazy but he seeks his divorce lawyer either way. Ross' divorce lawyer is in disbelief but can't do the annulment without Rachel.
Meanwhile, Chandler and Monica break the news of their live-in plans, first with Joey who is happy for them but sad to be losing Chandler, and then to Rachel who doesn't seem to have much of a reaction at all -- until she takes it seriously.
Phoebe asks some girls whether they would date Ross. One thinks Ross is still in love with Rachel. Eventually, he himself realizes that he still is.
