Storyline

Only Phoebe is allowed to know about Chandler's plan to propose to Monica and they look for an engagement ring together. To cover for their secrecy Phoebe tells Ross that Chandler is mad at him. Things are going well between Rachel and Paul except Rachel wishes he would open up a little and talk more about himself. When Paul finally does share some stories he gets very emotional and can't stop crying. Chandler and Phoebe find the perfect ring but somebody buys it when Chandler goes to get his credit card from Joey. Chandler ends up buying a different, less nice ring but they are able to trade with the guy who bought the perfect ring. Rachel dumps Paul for being a cry baby. When Chandler tells the others about his plans they are overwhelmed and very happy. Written by Anonymous

Goofs

When Joey and Ross are in the coffee shop deciding to freeze out Chandler, Joey says it's going to be "Joey and Ross," the new Joey and Chandler. However when he says this, he points to the wrong people. When he says "Joey" he is pointing to Ross and when he says "Ross" he is pointing to himself. However Joey is not the brightest of the group so perhaps this was done intentionally as a joke to the viewers. If this is the case, though, it is never pointed out or acknowledged. See more »

The One with the Ring
19 August 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The greatest part of this episode is Phoebe and Chandler going to get a ring together. I liked how Chandler left to get his credit card and Phoebe stayed to guard the ring and yet let someone buy it because she was playing with jewelry and the gun. An even better part is when they go to change the ring back. Phoebe pretending that she is dying was funny and I must say a great idea, this is probably what made the man change the ring! And then Chandler ruins the proposal to make it even better

Not bad is also the story of how Paul turns from a guy who didn't want to share his feelings to a guy who couldn't stop crying. I must say it made me think that Bruce Willis is really not right for the sitcoms, although he usually is a great actor
