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 that 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 else buys it when Chandler goes to get his credit card from Joey. Chandler ends up buying a different, less nice ring, but after tracking down the buyer, they are able to trade with him just before he proposes to his own girlfriend. Rachel dumps Paul for being a crybaby. When Chandler tells the others about his plans, they are overwhelmed and very happy. Written by Anonymous

Goofs

When Rachel comes into the apartment while Paul is writing down his feelings, she places her purse and a brown bag on their sides on the counter.
