23 Of The Best Proposal Scenes From TV Shows

    Ugly cry down memory lane with me as we celebrate some of TV's most beautiful proposals

    Every couple handles the big proposal in a different way. Some want a ~big thing~ while others are content with a more intimate ask.

    TV has given us great examples of both. These TV couples' engagements have made viewers laugh, cry, and squeal at how awesome love can be.

    1. Jim and Pam's proposal on The Office proved a big speech isn't necessary.

    3. Jane tells Michael all the reasons why she doesn't love him during her proposal on Jane The Virgin.

    It seemed all but certain Topanga was going to have to go to Yale and move on, but love conquers all. We may not agree from a girl power POV, but for every kid who grew up watching these two fall in love, it was kind of beautiful.

    8. Niles also had a foiled perfect proposal on Frasier when Daphne got a cold.
