(Ross goes back to 읽기 newspaper while Rachel drinks her coffee and Monica walks in.)
Monica: Hey. (sits down on chair across from Rachel)
Rachel: Where's Chandler and the kids?

Ross: Yeah. 당신 want to see the ring?
Monica: Of course. Now 당신 better not have been cheap. This is Rachel were talking about.

(Ross opened a small mahogany case. The ring was silver. It had Rachel's birthstones(
amethysts) on two sides and the diamond in the middle was 10k.)
Monica: Oh my God Ross. How much did 당신 pay for this?
Ross: Thirteen thousand dollars even. It was worth so much 더 많이 but thank god I got a deal on it.
Monica: What?!? How much was it originally worth?
Ross: Eighteen thousand dollars.
Monica: What?!?! Chandler didn't even spend ten thousand dollars on my ring!
Monica: Well..This is really nice Ross. Well at least we know one thing for sure.
Ross: And that is?
Monica: This one won't end in divorce.

Chandler: Ross, she's staying here for only a couple hours. She's not staying here for a week.
Ross: Yeah I know. I'm just nervous because of tonight.
Monica: So where are 당신 taking her?
Ross: I'm taking her to the old museum. 당신 know the one I used to work at?
Chandler: Because old fossils and 본즈 turn her on?
Ross: No. It's where we had our first date.
Chandler: Ah. See that makes 더 많이 sense.
Ross: Yeah I'm gonna take her there and well I'll just tell 당신 about it when we both come back. I gotta go get the 별자리 투영기, 플라네타륨 ready. Okay, bye Emma. Bye guys.

Monica: 저기요 I'm gonna go check on the twins, will 당신 be okay with Emma?
Chandler: It's just her so I think we'll be fine.
(Monica goes into twins bedroom Chandler picks up Emma)
Chandler: Hello Emma. Remember me? I'm Uncle Chandler. Uncle Chandy. Uncle Chan. I'm the cool uncle. Uh-oh. What's that smell? What's that smell? Is that you? Uh- Monica! Monica?
Monica: I'm kind of busy right now! Whatever it is I'm sure 당신 can handle it!
Chandler: Okay. Okay. I can do this. I can do this.
(Chandler sets up everything and lays Emma on a blanket.)
Chandler: Okay. Okay. I'm just going to charge through this.
(Five 분 later)
Chandler: (Picks up Emma from the blanket) See we can do it. 당신 know why? Cause I'm Uncle Chan and I am good
(We enter the 별자리 투영기, 플라네타륨 where Ross is laying lilies all over the floor. He finishes within minutes. He does a run through. Everything is perfect. Ross practices kneeling down and proposing before leaving to pick up Rachel.)
Ross: [Okay. Everything is perfect. Now let's just practice. Wait where's the ring? I know I have it somewhere...Damn it.]
(we enter Chandler and Monica's apartment. Emma, the twins and Chandler play together while Monica cooks dinner. Phoebe walks in.)
Phoebe: 저기요 guys.
Monica: 저기요 Pheebs. Where have 당신 been?
Phoebe: 당신 do not
want to know.
Chandler: Anyway, uh so where's Mike?
Phoebe: He's at a gig. He's performing for a high school dance. Its either that 또는 there are some really geeky adult guys at a high school who are desperate for sex.
Monica: 저기요 Phoebe 당신 want to stay for 공식 만찬, 저녁 식사 and help me and Chandler babysit Emma?
Phoebe: Sure. Oh right, Ross is proposing tonight. Well I'm sure this one won't end the same way all his other marriages did.
Chandler: I really doubt it will too. I mean Rachel can't be gay, He will be saying "I Ross, take thee Rachel," and that name has already been programed in his head..and I'm sure they won't be eloping drunk in Vegas.
Chandler: Wait. No, Yep those are all
his divorces. 저기요 does anyone know where Joey went?
Phoebe: Oh, he's with that girl again. Um..Jamie. They're really hitting it off.
Monica: Yeah haven't they been together for like almost two months now?
Chandler: Wow. Go Joe. In two months Joey would've slept with at least ten girls and didn't call them back.
Monica: Oh, I just remembered did 당신 know that Ross had spent thirteen thousand dollars on Rachel's engagement ring?
Monica: And he got a deal on it.
Phoebe: Well how much was it originally worth?
Monica: Eighteen thousand dollars.
Phoebe: Boy did I marry the wrong guy.
Chandler: Doesn't really surprise me.
Chandler: Well I mean come on it's Ross were talking about. When he loves a girl he loves her to death. He gets serious. Have 당신 seen the ring he gave to Carol? I haven't but I'm sure it was great.
(We enter Ross and Rachel's apartment. Ross had picked up Rachel.)
Rachel: Okay, just give me ten 분 and then we can go.
Ross: Actually fifteen will be better I have to go check on Emma at Mon's. I'll come back here and then I'll change then we can go. I'll be right back.
(Rachel walks into bedroom and Ross heads off to Chandler and Monica's. We then enter their apartment.)
Ross: 저기요 guys.
Phoebe: Whoa mister what are 당신 doing over here? Shouldn't 당신 be doing some proposing?
Ross: I 로스트 the ring.
Monica and Phoebe: WHAT?!?!
Phoebe: 당신 로스트 an eighteen thousand dollar ring? How stupid could 당신 be?
Ross: I know. Can 당신 please just help me find it? I think I left it here when I dropped off Emma.
Monica: Okay, okay. Everybody 검색 the apartment. Chandler 당신 just..watch the kids.
(ten 분 later)
Ross: Oh my God... Okay I'll just have to propose without it. I have to get ready in five minutes. Uh..I'll bring Emma with me. Thanks for watching her while I prepared the place.
Chandler: No problem man.
Ross: Wish me luck.
Phoebe: Good luck. Dumbass.
Ross: I- oh forget it.
(We enter Ross' apartment. Ross walks in with Emma. Rachel walks out in a wine colored dress with a black jacket.)
Rachel: Hey. Hi Emma. Oh 당신 coming with me and daddy?
Ross: Yeah I just decided to bring her with us instead of having Mon and Chandler having to take care of her. God. 당신 look..Beautiful. Phenomenal.
Rachel: Hm, thank you.
Ross: I'll go change really quick.
(five 분 later in the car. They are all buckled up ready to go.)
Okay. Before we go I want 당신 to put this blindfold on.
Ross: It's a surprise. Come on. Here I'll put it on you. Now let's go.
(They enter the museum. Ross brings Rachel with Emma into a dark hallway before the planetarium.)
Ross: Take off your blindfold and start walking when I tell you.
(Ross looks into Emma's 우유 bag to give her, her milk. Instead he finds the ring. He grabs it and gives the 우유 bag back to Rachel and runs across to the operating room. Grabs the remote for the sound system and 별, 스타 presentation.)
Ross: Start walking Rach! Walk towards the light.
(When she nearly reaches the edge of the hallway, he activates the sound system which begins to play "The Way 당신 Look Tonight". Rachel finally comes out of the hallway. She sees Ross across the planetarium. She walks toward him. She looks around realizing that there are lilies on the floor. She finally walks up to Ross in the center of the planetarium.)
Rachel: Ross, what's going on?
(Ross took Rachel's hand)
Ross: Rachel, all my life I have been looking for the one person I know I was meant to spend the rest of my life with. But each time I failed to find who that person was. Then about eight and a half years ago, I found you. I knew it was you. You
are the person I was meant to spend the rest of my life with. But I had made the stupid mistake of letting 당신 go. I hated myself for that. But right here right now, I am promising one thing to you. (both begin crying) As long as I live I will make 당신 happier than anyone could intake in a lifetime. I will 사랑 당신 so much that no one in this world could experience. I want to grow old with you. I want to 사랑 당신 till the 일 I die.
(He turned the 별, 스타 presentation on and then kneels down.)
Rachel: Oh my God.
Ross: Rachel Karen Greene, look up.
(Rachel looks up and reads "will 당신 marry me" written in the stars. While doing this Ross takes out the ring and presents it to her when she looks down.)
Ross: Will 당신 marry me?
Rachel: (in tears) Yes.
(He puts the ring on her hand. He gets up and kisses her. The audience screams and shouts. He then picks up Emma and gives them a big hug. He then puts his head against Rachel's and whispers:)
Ross: Happy anniversary.
