So Emily is what, like, your college sweetheart?
- It's amazing how you do that. - What?
The way you take the simplest statement,
and then you twist it with a completely negative connotation.
- It's really, actually, impressive. I'm amazed. - I didn't mean to do that.
- But I understand. I get it. - I actually think it's very sweet.
- See, you did it again. - Really?
- Yeah. - I don't even know I'm doing it.
It's probably hard for you to imagine a relationship based on mutual respect
without even the slightest hint of whatever you call it, masochism.
Well, if your deal with Emily is so gosh darn wonderful,
then why don't you just marry her?
What's stopping you?
- Wow. - Wow.
She gets it tomorrow. I made a reservation
at some fancy French restaurant on the Upper East Side.
Oh, my God. You're doing it in front of a room full of strangers?
- Yeah, I am. What's wrong with that? - No, nothing. I think it shows confidence.
What are you gonna say?
- I'm still working on it. I don't know. - Oh, you should work on it with me.
You should practice with me. I'm really good at that. I will be Emily.
I'm Emily, your college sweetheart. Is there something you wanted to ask me?
- Emily... - Wait! You've got to get down on your knee.
No, I'm not getting down on my knee.
She'll like it. She'll like seeing you down on your knee.
- I'm not getting down on my knee. - Such a mistake. Okay.
- Emily. - Yes, William.
Don't make me laugh. Emily,
will you,
marry me?
- No. - Oh, my God.
Well, what do you mean, "Will you, um, marry me?"
I haven't seen you in weeks!
You don't look happy or excited about the prospect of our marriage!
You're asking me to give up my freedom,
my joie de vivre
for an institution that fails as often as it succeeds?
And why should I marry you, anyway? I mean, why do you wanna marry me?
Besides some bourgeois desire to fulfill an ideal that society embeds in us
from an early age to promote a consumer capitalist agenda?
Oh, my God!
- You should've got on your knee! - Just shut up!
I wanna marry you because you're the first person
that I want to look at when I wake up in the morning
and the only one I wanna kiss goodnight.
Because the first time that I saw these hands,
I couldn't imagine not being able to hold them.
But mainly, when you love someone as much as I love you
getting married is the only thing left to do.
So will you...
marry me?
Definitely. Maybe.
I have to think about it.
