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

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