Marriage proposals can be romantic, emotional, unexpected or even comical, and sometimes the answer is given before the question has been asked. From this list of marriage proposals* from post-1990 live action television shows, which scene is your favorite?

*where the intent is true, and the answer is some form of "yes"

NOTE: This list may contain spoilers

My first (and it looks like yours as well) thought was Monica and Chandler. I know the list is nearly full but it's too bad there aren't any older shows represented.

For Howard it should say Wolowitz's.

I know there certainly are a lot more scenes than these, but I have one more spot if you'd like to suggest something. I had a few in mind, but couldn't decide.

And anyone is more than welcome to make a part 2 if necessary.

On using apostrophes to show possession with nouns that end in S: 

Be consistent when you use apostrophes after words that end in "s.
" When someone's name ends with an "s," it is acceptable to use an apostrophe without an "s" to show ownership, but linguists with the Chicago Manual of Style, along with others, prefer to add an "s" after the apostrophe.
  • Note the difference in usage:
    • Acceptable: Jones' house; Francis' window; Enders' family.
    • Preferred: Jones's house; Francis's window; Enders's family.

Thanks, but I really prefer not using the extra 's'. I solved the problem by changing the names to Howard's, Xander's etc. :)

I barely remember any of these proposals. What does that say about me?

You should watch more TV. :)

But yeah, I know what you mean. I haven't even watched half of these shows, and it's not like I remember every proposal scene in the ones I have watched.
