Chandler picks out an engagement ring for Monica, with Phoebe's help. Unfortunately, someone else buys the ring before Chandler has a chance to. He has to convince the other buyer to trade rings with him. Meanwhile, Joey and Ross are feeling brushed-off because Chandler isn't hanging out with them. Phoebe makes matters worse by suggesting that Chandler is angry with them. Rachel tries to get Paul to open up and express his feelings. She gets more than she expects and can't turn it off... so she dumps him.
Phoebe: So how are things going with Paul?
Rachel: Good. Although y'know, he-he's a private guy. Y'know, I wish I could get him to open up a little bit, share some feelings.
Phoebe: That's easy! You just have to think of him as a... as a jar of pickles that won't open.
Rachel: So what are you saying? I should run him under some hot water and bang his head against a table?
Phoebe: No, that's what you do when you want to get the truth out of someone.
Phoebe: Chandler, I will handle this! [To the jeweler] How much is it?
Phoebe: We will give you ten dollars.
Jeweler: Are you interested in this ring?
Chandler: Yes! Yes, but I can only pay $8,000.
Jeweler: Okay, I can let it go at eight.
Phoebe: We stand firm at ten dollars.
Phoebe: Listen, I'm sorry about before. Do you have anything here for ten dollars?
Jeweler: Uh, yes, I have these two rather beautiful $5 bills.
Phoebe: I'll give you one dollar for them.
Phoebe: There he is!
Chandler: Okay! And he hasn't proposed yet because she has no ring on her finger.
Phoebe: Wow! You're good! After this, we should solve crimes.
