  • Quotes (16)

    • Chandler: Okay, I've been doing a lot of thinking about us. A lot of us thinking. And uh, well, I guess there's only one way to do this. (gets down on one knee) Monica: Wh- Wh- What are you doing? Chandler: Monica... Monica: No, no, no. Don't-- D-Don't do it. Chandler: Will you marry me? Ross: Oh, no, no, no. Joey: What a bad idea. Rachel (about the ring): Oh, I can't not look at it. Monica: Chandler, why are you doing this? Chandler: I don't know. But I know that I'm not afraid to do this. Monica: Chandler... Chandler: I'm doing this because I'm sorry? Monica: Do you really think the best reason to get married is because you're sorry? Chandler: Well, no, the best reason to get married is pregnancy. Sorry is pretty much fourth, behind being ready and actually wanting to get married. Will you be my wife? Monica: Chandler, I want you to take just a minute and think about how ridiculous this sounds. Chandler: Yeah, I'm kind of wishing everyone wasn't here right now. Monica: Honey, you know that none of that stuff came from me. I never said that I wanted to have babies and get married right now! Chandler: Yeah, I know I was really confused and then I talked to these guys. (motions to Ross & Joey) Monica: Who? Two divorces and Joey? Joey (to Ross): She's right, y'know? Ross: Yeah, but still, cheap shot. Monica: You know when I said that I wanted to deal with this relationship stuff all on your own? Well, you're not ready for that. Chandler: I didn't think I was!

    • Joey: Is it obvious that I'm wearing six sweaters? Rachel: Well, yeah. But it's not obvious why. Joey: Well, look, I'm breaking up with Katie so I had to put on some extra padding. If she hits me when she's happy could you imagine how hard she's gonna hit me when I tell her I'm taking away the Joey love. Rachel: Oh, ooh, right. I forgot that you call it that.

    • Monica: I'm still not done not wanting to talk to you. Chandler: Tell me what I need to do to make things right. Monica: What? Chandler: Well, that's what we do, y'know, I mess up, and then you tell me how to fix it and then I do and then y'know, you think I'm all cute again. Monica: I'm really tired of being your relationship tutor. You're gonna have to figure this one out yourself. You know, you too afraid to be in a real relationship then don't be in one.

    • Monica: You get all freaked out because everyone was talking and just joking around about marriage and stuff. Chandler: Well, y-you do want all that stuff, right? Monica: Oh, and you know what I want? Chandler: Yes, you want babies. You have baby fever. Monica: I do not have baby fever. Chandler: Oh, please. You are obsessed with babies and marriage and everything that's related to babies and m-marriage. You know what? I got a good idea, why don't we turn the heat down on this pressure cooker. Monica: Have you lost your mind? Chandler this isn't about me, it's about you and all your weird relationship commitment crap. Chandler: Nuh-uh I know you. I know the thoughts you have in the head-- your head. Monica: You don't know everything. Did you know that I'm going out with Rachel tonight instead of you? Hmm. And did you know that the only baby around here is you? And did you know that I can't even look at you right now. Chandler: I did not know that.

    • Rachel (about Ross): And that crazy party animal will be your brother-in-law. Chandler: Okay, very, very funny. But don't say things like that to Monica I don't want you putting any ideas in her head. Rachel: Um, Chandler, you do realize that those ideas are probably already in Monica's head. Chandler: Wha-Why? Rachel: Well, because she loves you and you love her. Chandler: Yeah, so, what's that supposed to mean? Rachel: Hey, Chandler, don't freak out. I'm telling you something you already know. Come on, she broke up with Richard because he didn't want to have babies and she's a woman and she's almost 30 and you know, she's Monica. Chandler: I don't see it that way, okay? Because I see two Monicas. The one who's my friend and that lives across the hall and wants to have a lot of babies. And then the new Monica who I just started to date. Now who's to say what she wants? I'm right. I'm right. Am I right? Rachel: Oh, absolutely. Chandler: I'm completely different than Richard anyway, he's an eye doctor and I don't wear glasses. Rachel: No, you're right. You're absolutely right. I mean, that makes everything different. Chandler: It's not different at all, is it? Rachel: Not unless different means the same.

    Trivia (6)

    • Magna Doodle: C. B. & M. G (in a heart with an arrow through it with a the word "forever" to the bottom right of it) The C.B. and M.G. obviously stand for Chandler Bing and Monica Geller.

    • Trivia: In this episode, Ross is called "3B" by the other residents of his new building. David Schwimmer played Josh '4B' Goldstein (nicknamed after his apartment) on NYPD Blue.

    • Trivia: When Phoebe and Ross are in Ross's apartment, after they got kicked out of the party, Phoebe's Cheez-Its are spelled HEEZ-I.

    • Trivia: When Ross hugs Joey and Rachel in the opening scene, both Joey's and Rachel's hands are under his left arm and Joey's forearm crushes Rachel's wrist. When they separate, Rachel shakes her injured wrist and mouths "ow." This reaction appears to be real, rather than part of the script.

    • Goof: When Ross is eating Howard's cake, the frosting on his face changes between camera angles.
