Were Ross and Rachel on a break?FRIENDS fans

We were on a break! After Rachel and Ross get into yet another fight over her work schedule, Rachel suggests taking a break. Ross goes out with the guys, and when he calls Rachel to apologize, he hears her coworker Mark in the background. He then sleeps with the hot copy girl, thinking that Rachel might be doing the same with Mark. Both of them were at fault. Rachel should have tried to handle Ross’s insecurity politely, instead of just flipping out and deciding to take a break. And of course, there is no excuse for Ross sleeping with someone else after his lobster suggested taking a break. Anyway, this argument among FRIENDS fans is never ending.
