We end Proposals Gone Right with my absolute favorite. I know what you're thinking... You're thinking all these proposals were so unfathomably good that it would be impossible for me to actually choose between them. And while I do love each and every one of them, there is one that trumps the rest. Now before you go thinking I've saved Pride and Prejudice for last, let me go ahead and clear the air before the outcry... I consider that second declaration much more of a proposal gone implied (*braces self for a slew of rotten tomatoes*) and that is just going to have to be a series for another day! Anyway, here it is, the big one! Drumroll please...
|Behold! The face of the luckiest girl on the planet!|
It's from Falling for a Dancer. Sound familiar? You may remember it for having one of the worst proposals gone wrong known to mankind both on and off the page. So how can a guy who tried to let his cousin propose for him (as was custom, but still a romantic faux pas), who was then subjected to every foul name under the sun, redeem himself to the point of landing the most swoon worthy proposal gone right in the end? Well. After being in love with Elizabeth from afar some eight years, after screwing up his first proposal so royally, after more trials and tribulations- scandals! murders! runaway carriages! oh my!- than someone should have to handle in a lifetime, Mossie finally acquired something called perfect timing. Perfect being the key word. PER-FECT.
Fast forward to 3:30.
Mossie: I can think of nothing else except you since that first time I saw you sitting in your father's car.
Mossie: You were like an angel that first day or a child in a painting.
*hand over heart/whimpering*
Mossie: You were wearing a blue dress with a big white collar.
Whyyyyyyyyyy does this line give me ALL THE FEELINGS?!?!
Mossie: I had never seen any living creature so beautiful in all my life. You came between me and my sleep that first night-
Ah! Ah! Ah! Processing emotions malfunction!
Mossie: -and every night since.
Mossie: Because I fell in love with you, Elizabeth, completely and forever.
Mossie: Now, I'm sorry about the Johnny Thayde disaster, I really am.
Mossie: But I thought I could maybe shock you into noticing me if I couldn't get through to you any other way.
Bebeeeeeee!!!!! All cousin-meets-first-proposal misconduct is forgiven.
Mossie: Elizabeth, you're the only woman I've ever loved. But you wouldn't even look on the same side of the road I walked.
Mossie: I thought if I could get you to marry me, by whatever means, we could work it out later.
You darling misguided man. ILU.
Elizabeth: Could we maybe work it out now?
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ELIZABETH!!!!!!!! GIRLFRIEND! WHAT! WHAT! WHAT! STARS IN MY EYES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
