Runaway Bride (1999)
Richard Gere: Ike Graham
Ike Graham : [on the perfect proposal] Look, I guarantee there'll be tough times. I guarantee that at some point, one or both of us is gonna want to get out of this thing. But I also guarantee that if I don't ask you to be mine, I'll regret it for the rest of my life, because I know, in my heart, you're the only one for me.
[Ike and Maggie have just kissed]
Coach Bob Kelly : [to Maggie] If you were imagining me, you did great.
[turns to Ike]
Coach Bob Kelly : What the hell were YOU doing?
Ike Graham : I'm sorry, Bob. She kissed me back.
Maggie Carpenter : I kissed him back.
Coach Bob Kelly : Yeah, I caught that. Want to tell me how long this has been going on?
Maggie Carpenter : About a minute...?
Ike Graham : A little longer for me.
Maggie Carpenter : [smiles] Really?
Coach Bob Kelly : What do you expect me to say to this?
Ike Graham : How about - "I hope you'll be very happy together"?
[Bob punches Ike in the face]
Coach Bob Kelly : I hope you'll be very happy together.
Maggie Carpenter : I wanted to tell you why I run - sometimes ride - away from things.
Ike Graham : Does it matter?
Maggie Carpenter : I think so.
[takes a deep breath]
Maggie Carpenter : When I was walking down the aisle, I was walking toward somebody who didn't have any idea who I really was. And it was only half the other person's fault, because I had done everything to convince him that I was exactly what he wanted. So it was good that I didn't go through with it because it would have been a lie. But you - you knew the real me.
Ike Graham : Yes, I did.
Maggie Carpenter : I didn't. And you being the one at the end of the aisle didn't just fix that.
Maggie Carpenter : [Ike has just seen Maggie in the mirror in his apartment] Hello Ike.
Ike Graham : Don't tell me, my *doorman* is one of your many admirers.
Maggie Carpenter : I'm making friends with your cat. Is it okay that I'm here?
Ike Graham : I don't have much choice in the matter, do I? But, I can't speak for Italics.
[points at Italics the cat]
Ike Graham : *Traitor*.
Ike Graham : Hey, don't knock drunks in bars! It means they're not out driving.
Maggie Carpenter : Benedict.
Ike Graham : Arnold.
Maggie Carpenter : I love Eggs Benedict, I hate every other kind. I hate big weddings with everybody staring. I'd like to get married on a weekday while everybody's at work. And when I ride off into the sunset, I want my own horse.
Ike Graham : Should I be writing this down?
Ike Graham : [Mrs. Whittenmeyer refuses to sell a wedding gown to Maggie] You sell wedding dresses, right?
Mrs. Whittenmeyer : Yes, I've been selling wedding gowns for thirty-five years.
Ike Graham : Wonderful! Because we are here to buy one! But not just any one.
[points to a gown in the window]
Ike Graham : She wants "that" one!
Mrs. Whittenmeyer : It's a thousand dollars!
Ike Graham : Listen, Aunt Bea! Conversation has never worked for me, let's try "visual."
[jumps into the window and pulls the mannequin down, knocking its wig off]
Ike Graham : We're buying the dress! And anything else she wants!
Maggie Carpenter : I love you, Homer Eisenhower Graham. Will you marry me?
Ike Graham : I... I've got to think about this a little bit.
Maggie Carpenter : Good. I was hoping you'd say that.
Ike Graham : [laughing] You were not!
Maggie Carpenter : I was, because if you said "yes" right away, then I wouldn't get to say this next part, and I've been practicing.
[Maggie sits down, clears her throat]
Maggie Carpenter : Ready?
Ike Graham : I'm listening.
Maggie Carpenter : I guarantee there'll be tough times. I guarantee that at some point, one or both of us is going to want get out. But I also guarantee...
[starts to cry]
Maggie Carpenter : ...that if I don't ask you to be mine, I'll regret it for the rest of my life. Because I know in my heart... you're the only one for me.
[Ike's voice on his answering machine]
Ike Graham : Hi, leave a message after the beep. If you want to send me a fax, then buy me a fax machine.
Ike Graham : SHAZAM! I think I'm in Mayberry.
Ike Graham : You want a man who'll lead you down the beach with his hands over your eyes... Just so you can discover the feel of the sand under your feet.
Ike Graham : You want a guy that'll wake you up at dawn. He's just bursting to talk to you. Can't wait another minute... Just to find out what you'll say. Am i right?
Ike Graham : A toast to uh to Maggie's family and friends. May you find yourselves the bulls-eye of an easy target. May you be publicly flogged for all of your bad choices. And may your noses be rubbed in all of your mistakes.
