Upon seeing his boyfriend, a tearful Andy says to Ed, "Will you marry me?", but it seems he is one step ahead.

Pulling out a ring and getting down on bended knee, Ed announces: "I can do one better."

As Ed tries calm Andy down, he says: "Come on, look at me. Put your hands down. Will you marry me?" to which he responds through tears: "I will, I will. of course I will."

He adds: "I'm so lucky. I knew it before, but since being in here, I can't live without you."
