Joey bends over to pick up Ross's wedding ring in front of Rachel. In fact, the ring was giving to Ross by his mother, in order to propose to Rachel. Ross is thinking seriously about the matter. However, Rachel thinks that Joey has proposed her and Joey tries to explain her that he only had the ring by mistake. It's too late though, because Rachel has said yes to Joey. Every time he tries to explain, someone enters to the room and interrupts. Monica is talking about trying to conceive a baby to Chandler and they make out in a janitor's room. Jack Geller, hearing all the noises inside, opens the door in order to snoop and sees his daughter and Chandler making out. Phoebe thinks that Ross has proposed to Rachel after she sees Rachel wearing the ring. Ross is confused, because he never has proposed to Rachel. Written by Alejandro Frias

Did You Know?


Monica tells Chandler that if they have sex again it will double their odds of getting pregnant. But in the last episode, they decide to have sex just for them after they tried having sex to get pregnant. So this would make it their third time, which would triple, not double, their odds.

The One After Rachel Has Her Baby...
19 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

This episode is so funny. Just the idea of it. Rachel thinking Joey proposed by didn't actually propose.

In this episode, Rachel has just given birth to her beautiful baby girl, Emma. She thought Joey had proposed, but it turns out he didn't. But she says yes, so Joey goes along with it, for a while. When Ross comes to actually propose to Rachel, she tells him about her engagement to Joey. Ross is furious at Joey. Come on man, it's not his fault. He went to pick up the ring and Rachel misunderstood. Eventually Joey tells Rachel the truth, and she feels so stupid and silly for even thinking that he was proposing. I mean, just after she had another mans child. I mean, it would be cute and Joey does love her, but still. Meanwhile, Monica and Chandler decide to start trying to have a baby. They even try whilst at the hospital. And Jack, Monica's Dad, sort of walks in on it. How awkward.

Overall, I give this episode a 10 out of 10.
