V-Day Run-up: 6. Monica and Chandler

Knew each other forever,
Yet it never occurred to them
That what they were crazily looking for
In every twist and turn
Was just across the hall.

Maybe, it was the over-familiarity
That stopped the other
From seeming dreamy exotic.
But at times, reality
Is sweeter than a thousand dreams.

He was her friend
Who couldn’t get why she was single.
She was his friend
Who taught him how to please a girl.
They were truly just friends.

Till a one-night stand
Gave them the love of a lifetime.
They couldn’t go back
No matter how tough it got,
For this was it.

Apparently, all the heartbreak
They individually endured
Was finally justified,
As that’s what made
Him her Chandler and her his Monica.

Monica: Chandler… In all my life… I never thought I would be so lucky, (starting to cry) as to… fall in love with my best… my best… There’s a reason why girls don’t do this!

Chandler: Okay! (He joins her on one knee) Okay! Okay! I’ll do it!  Oh God… I thought… (starting to cry, pauses) Wait a minute, I… I can do this. I thought that it mattered what I said or where I said it. Then I realized the only thing that matters is that you, you make me happier than I ever thought I could be (starting to cry again) and if you’ll let me, I will spend the rest of my life trying to make you feel the same way. Monica, will you marry me?

This is my favourite television couple of all time.
