Did You Know?

Plot holes: Monica, who spent her entire childhood fantasizing about her wedding, doesn't recognize that the ring on Rachel's finger is her own grandmother's engagement ring which Ross had previously also given to Emily. All she has to say about it is, "It is bigger than mine!"See more »
Joey:The ring fell on the floor and I went down to pick it up, and you thought I was proposing.
Rachel Green:Yeah, but you said 'will you marry me'.
Joey:No, I didn't.
Rachel Green:Yes, you did!
Joey:No, I didn't.
Rachel Green:Yes, you did! Oh, my god, you didn't.

The One After Rachel Has Her Baby..., 19 October 2014
Author: Taylor Kingston from Australia

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

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.
