Storyline

Tonight is the big night for Chandler: he will propose to Monica. Rachel, Phoebe and Joey go to a beneficial dinner organized by Rachel's boss. Joey bids at a silent auction because he thought you had to guess the prize and therefore buys a boat for $20,000. Just as Chandler is about to propose Richard walks into the restaurant with his girlfriend and they sit at the table next to Chandler and Monica so Chandler can't propose. Elizabeth isn't as mature as Ross had thought so he breaks up with her. Chandler doesn't want to make Monica suspicious and find out about his plan so he acts as if he was still afraid of commitment. Richard goes to see Monica at the restaurant and says he still loves her. Written by Anonymous

The One with the Proposal: Part 1
19 August 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

My favorite part of this episode is the charity for children. Rachel really got herself some trouble by taking Joey and Phoebe to it. Phobe was just taking advantage of the open bar, i love her line where she says that she is doing it for the kids because the more she drinks the less there is for the kids to drink. And Joey buys a boat he can't afford. It is also very funny how Rachel tries to convince the next highest bidder to get the boat and the result is just that Joey wants to keep it

The end of Ross and Elizabeth's relationship was pretty funny as well. I don't really get what is so wrong with a water balloon fight every once in a while, not everyone is such a boring human as Ross;s sister, some people like to have fun. But I like how he thinks that she handled the relationship in a very mature way and she throws a balloon at him out of the window

I won't say much about Chandler and Monica, I will let it all out in my next review, but I must say she seemed way too happy about seeing Richard
