Episode Summary

Monica struggles to decide between Richard and Chandler. Meanwhile, Rachel and Phoebe discuss their backup plans if they are not married before the time they're 40.

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Who will she choose?

    Well, it looks like Richard beat Chandler to the punch. Richard proposes to Monica. I think they really overused the Monica & Richard scenes. It sort of took up most of the episode. Hilarious line: "Why don't they put chairs back here!?" - Monica. Rahcel & Phoebe having backups was sort of a hope for Ross & Rachel. If no one is married when they are forty, then Ross has to marry Racchel. I like how they switch papers in the end. Then Monica chosses Chandler! A very emotional last scene. And then all the friends rush in to hug each other. Great way to end the season. The only one without a cliffhanger, by far!moreless
  • Tearjerker?! I was balling like a baby!!

    I'm supposed to review the whole episode but the greatest moment in the entire episode is the final scene, when Chandler opens the door to find Monica surrounded by candles and greeting him with the line "You wanted it to be a surprise"

    It was at this moment where I know that I would probably end up crying. The speech that Monica gave was so sweet and then it being followed up with Chandler only made the moment more perfect!

    I'm sure that everyone knew that Monica would say yes, but for me, there was still the anticipation of the "Will She Won't She" Factor! The second she said yes, I felt all my emotions erupt out me in water droplets, and even today it still gets me every time!

  • not the best, but not the worst

    the first thing i noteced was that this was the only season finally that didn't end in some sort of cliff hanger, and didn't end with all the friends dancing in the water, also i think it focused to much on monica, and chandler though i did like their scenes, there where only a few with phoebe, rachel, and Ross, though there where some with joey, and his new boat. and another i don't get isw how come ross was the only one who wasn't there when chandler praposed to monica. it seems unneccissary. however i did like the scene where he praposed, and you though she had left, then you see her with all the candles. then she gets down, and praposed. one of the best scenes ever shot in the seriesmoreless
  • Chandler finally proposes to Monica!!

    I saw this episode on a DVD and I loved it so much I started crying. I knew Chandler and Monica were going to get married but I had no idea it was going to be that emotional. Monica and Chandler aren't even my favorite characters on Friends and I still cried. It was great and emotional. It is one of the best Friends episode ever. If the proposal was that emotional I can't even imangine the wedding. I would have never expected Richard to come back and if someone would have told me he did and I hadn't seen the episode I never would have believed them. I can't believe he was so sweet and let Chandler just have her. Did he really love her?moreless
  • Chandler is about to pop the question, but Richard does it before he can

    This was the most romantic Friends episode of all times. In my eyes it was sooo sweet how Chandler carefully prepared everything and almost messed it up. He made Monica believe he was never gonna marry her chasing her directly into Richard's arms. It was also nice to see him again and see that he finally realized he wants all the same things that Monica wants - but he's so definitely too late. I'm so happy that it all worked out that well in the end.

    The proposal couldn't have been any better. Having Monica start and then Chandler do the rest - it was such a perfect thing for their relationship. I could have cried. It was so romantic and I'm so happy that's finally done :-)moreless
