28Hurt: Rachel Accepted Joey's Non-Proposal
This was one of those moments played for laughs that just didn't make sense in the story. Joey somehow ended up down on one knee holding out Ross' mother's ring, which was given to Ross so he could propose to Rachel. Assuming Joey was proposing, right after she had Ross'
baby, Rachel said yes.
In a way, it served as an obstacle that kept Ross and Rachel from getting back together, but what was the point of it? To bring up Joey's feelings for Rachel? To laugh about how Rachel shouldn't have been making any decisions after giving birth? They basically shrugged it off and the series would have been better for it if it would've never happened.
