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

Trivia

Dr. Richard Burke (Tom Selleck), recites an excerpt from a poem at dinner: "In the sweetness of friendship, let there be laughter and sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things, the heart finds its morning and is refreshed." It is the end of Kahlil Gibran's "On Friendship". See more »

Goofs

When Monica was dating Richard, she found out that he had only ever been with two women in his life - his ex-wife of nearly 30 years and Monica. Yet in subsequent stories, every time we see Richard he is on a date with a different woman - typically a 'random', middle-aged, unattractive sort of woman. That is not very believable. See more »

Quotes

[Chandler and Monica run into Richard and his new girlfriend]
Richard: I see you grew your hair long.
Monica: Yeah. Oh, that's right, you always wanted me to. I see you grew your mustache back.
Richard: Yeah, my nose was getting lonely.
Chandler: [to Richard's date] And you don't have a mustache, which is good.
[laughs, stops abruptly and extends his hand]
Chandler: Hi, I'm Chandler and I make jokes when I'm uncomfortable.

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
