I can’t believe another one of my friends is gonna get married!
He’s off ring shopping, with Phoebe, and has picked out an $8000 ring. Eight Thousand Dollars!! Jeebus. Maybe I should care a bit more about the Weenus too?
No wonder he’s always so generous to Joey who, at this point, is just flat out stealing money using Chandler’s credit card. Feel like THAT should be a bit more of a big deal? I guess Chandler’s pre-occupied.
Phoebe’s helping him shop, which reminds me of picking out my ring. I tried to get Rachel Number 2 to help me but they cancelled at the last minute and I had to go it alone. I think I made the right decision, but I’m sure my wife would have been delighted with anything that looked like I’d put in a bit of effort (and cash).
And, to be fair, Rachel Number 2 didn’t let me down as bad as Phoebe, who’s completely failed to look after Chandler’s ring while he’s off getting his credit card.
Fortunately they manage to hunt down the guy who bought the ring – phew. And somehow persuade him to swap AND accidentally spoil his proposal into the bargain. Honestly sometimes the things my mates get up to are so silly…
If you ask me Chandler should have followed Phoebe’s initial advice and proposed with a revolutionary war musket. I’d LOVE one of those.
“The One Without the Wedding”
******** APPLAUSE ********
Oh my god, it’s Bruce Willis!! What’s he doing here? Oh right, he’s going out with Rachel. You’d think the audience wouldn’t be as impressed anymore? It’s almost as if each week new people come in to watch my Friends™
Rachel’s having trouble getting Bruce to open up. It’s a bit like he’s…
I actually feel a bit sorry for Paul. Or Bruce. Or, whoever. You know who I mean.
He’s spent his whole life bottling things up and when it all comes out Rachel doesn’t want to know and makes him put it all back in again. Welcome to manhood. Population: us.
There’s certainly nothing wrong with him going round hugging all the guys. God it’s great to be doing that again!! Come here, Brucey, wrap your big old arms around me. Let’s have a cry.
Real Live Sitcom Moment:
All this talk of proposals got engagement on my mind.
I went to see Rachel and Ross Number 2. Talk turned to Monica Number 2 who’s recently emigrated with their partner.
“Do you think they’ll get engaged out there?” I, innocently, asked.
Rachel and Ross looked at me in confusion.
“They got married two months ago. You were at the wedding!!!”
How the hell did I forget that?!?!?
I thought I’d got away with it until opening WhatsApp™ a few days later to find a message from Monica:
“YOU WERE AT THE WEDDING!!!”
Dammit! In another country and still hearing about my idiocy. Maybe I should move to Minsk?
