The One With The Ring

Episode 6.23

[Previous][Next][Back to the Master List]

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.

The one where they said....

Chandler: No, I don't want to tell anybody else because I don't want Monica to find out.
Phoebe: You told me.
Chandler: Well, that's because I trust you, you're one of my best friends, and you walked in on me when I was looking at ring brochures.
Phoebe: Yeah, well, once again not knocking pays off. I only wish you hadn't been on the toilet.
Chandler: Me too.

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?
Jeweler: 8,600.
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.
