Day 29 - What ship had the best proposal?


Joe and Helen, Wings

I think the whole reason I did this meme was so I could answer this one.

My mom and I always watched this show together. This and Cheers. We were both devastated when Joe and Helen broke up and we kept waiting for them to get back together.

The proposal scene is just fantastic. I was going to transcribe it, but it's about four minutes long and I can't pick a place to start without feeling like I'm losing some of the greatness. So here's the whole thing.

Start at 2:40.

Day 01 - What is your current favorite ship?
Day 02 - What was your very first ship?
Day 03 - A pairing that needs to happen now?
Day 04 - The pairing with the most chemistry?
Day 05 - The pairing with the least chemistry?
Day 06 - The best kiss?
Day 07 - The most heartbreaking scene?
Day 08 - The pairing with the most baggage?
Day 09 - The most believable relationship?
Day 10 - Why aren’t these two married in real life?
Day 11 - What is your dream pairing?
Day 12 - Who had the best wedding?
Day 13 - What is your favorite television pairing?
Day 14 - What is your favorite book pairing?
Day 15 - What is your favorite real life pairing?
Day 16 - What is the absolute worst pairing?
Day 17 - A pairing you thought would never work out, but did?
Day 18 - What is the cutest pairing?
Day 19 - A pairing you’ve rooted for since the beginning?
Day 20 - The ‘can’t stand the sexual tension anymore’ pairing?
Day 21 - A pairing you like and no one else understands why?
Day 22 - A pairing you hate and no one else understands why?
Day 23 - A crazy love triangle/quadrilateral that worked out great?
Day 24 - A crazy love triangle/quadrilateral that worked out badly?
Day 25 - A pairing that was/would-be adorable, but could never work out?
Day 26 - A pairing that you hated and ended up loving?
Day 27 - A pairing that you loved and ended up hating?
Day 28 - A pairing that you will never understand?
Day 29 - What ship had the best proposal?

I can't believe I forgot about Wings! I used to love that show. I even remember watching this episode, lol. That was an awesome proposal. And what I love about it is that they didn't completely depart from the spirit of the show and go too serious, but kept it a little humorous.

I wonder how many other sitcoms I've forgotten about?

I love Wings. It's such an underrated show. And I do love how the proposal has the humorous moments but then ends with "That's our marriage, that's our lifetime" that made me cry the first time I saw this. I just wish their wedding hadn't been so "wacky" with the hand-stuck-in-the-toilet thing.
