Season 7, Episode 21 -  Aired May 3, 2001

With just four weeks to go until they get married, Chandler and Monica recall the history of their relationship as they try to write their wedding vows. [CLIP SHOW]

Quote from Ross

Joey: Hey, Ross, you've done this before. What did you say when you made up your vows?
Ross: Well, with Carol I promised to never love another woman until the day I die. She made no such promise.


Quote from Phoebe

Ross: I can't believe in four weeks they're gonna be married.
Phoebe: Well, let's just hope it works. You know, 9 out of 10 marriages end in divorce.
Ross: Phoebe, that's not true.
Phoebe: Yeah, you're right. How's the missus?

Quote from Phoebe

Phoebe: You know, your friends getting married, it's gotta change things.
Rachel: You really think it'll be that different?
Phoebe: How can it not be? I mean, pretty soon they're gonna be having kids and then they're just going to be hanging out with other couples who have kids. And then maybe they're going to have to leave the city to be near a Volvo dealership.

Quote from Joey

Ross: How did you write this?
Chandler: I stole Monica's and changed the name. Ssh.
Ross: You can't do that.
Joey: If he goes first he can.

Quote from Phoebe

Rachel: Monica, what? What is the emergency?
Monica: You have to help me. I'm supposed to be writing my vows and all I have is this.
Rachel: Well, I like the pretty little drawing of you in the wedding dress.
Monica: Thank you.
Phoebe: Yeah, except your breasts look kinda small.
Monica: Those are my eyes. Those are my breasts.
Phoebe: Oh, yeah.

Quote from Monica

Monica: Do you realize that four weeks from today we're getting married? Four weeks, baby.
Four weeks!
Chandler: You realize you get louder each week?

Quote from Chandler

Monica: There's still so much to do. Have you written your vows yet?
Chandler: I figured I'd just buy those. "Pat, I'd like to buy a vow."
Monica: Sweetie, you know I've no sense of humor when it comes to the wedding.

Quote from Chandler

Chandler: So have you written yours yet?
Monica: No, but I know exactly what I'm gonna say.
Chandler: Do you happen to know what I'm gonna say?
Monica: You know what, let's just do it right now. It won't be hard. Say what's in your heart.
Chandler: [inner monologue] Look at her go. She must love me more than I love her, What's wrong with me? Ooh, don't open that door.

Quote from Chandler

Chandler: "Monica, there are no words-" There are no words! This should not be this hard.

Quote from Phoebe

Phoebe: Or maybe you don't talk about your feelings back then. Maybe you just say something about, you know, all the things he's taught you, like...
