Sean: By now, I think you know how I feel about you. I’m madly in love with you and I believe in my heart of hearts that you’re my soul mate.
Ayako: That’s really sweet of you to say.
Sean: And because I feel the way I do, I would like to ask you a very important question.
Ayako: Okay, but why are you getting down on one knee...?
Sean: Ayako, would you marry me?
Ayako: Marry you?! Is this a marriage proposal?
Sean: Yes, and before you say anything else, I just want you to know that I’ve given this a lot of thought and I’m convinced that we’re made for each other.
Ayako: I don’t think...
Sean: And you just have to say the word and we could elope tomorrow, if you wanted to.
Sean: Or, if you prefer, we can have a lavish wedding. I’m not picky. I just want us to be husband and wife.
Ayako: Sean, you’re a really nice guy, but don’t you think you might be jumping the gun?
Sean: No. You know what they say: “When it’s right, it’s right.”
Ayako: We’ve only been on two dates!
Sean: Yes, but they have been the best two dates of my life!
