A great deal of Rachel's life throughout the series revolves around her relationship with Ross Geller.
At the end of season seven, during Monica's and Chandler's wedding, it is revealed that Rachel is pregnant from a one-night stand with Ross.
She later begins to work in fashion, becoming an assistant buyer, and later a personal shopper, at Bloomingdale's.
She eventually becomes a buyer at Polo Ralph Lauren.
Monica is an intelligent, kind-hearted person who works primarily as a chef at a variety of restaurants throughout the show.
In the second season, Monica falls for her father Jack's (Elliott Gould) friend, Richard Burke (Tom Selleck).
She accepts and prepares to move herself and Emma to France.
However, in the series finale, she declines the job offer and famously "gets off the plane".
Many celebrities guest starred on the series throughout its ten-year run.

Rachel and Ross get back together in the final moments of the series.
