In the new movie, “The Proposal”, starring Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds, a publishing executive (Bullock) forces her assistant (Reynolds) to marry her so she can avoid deportation back to Canada. “The Proposal” has received mixed reviews – some people just calling it an “old-fashioned romantic comedy”. Other reviews weren’t very forgiving, calling it below average, while most can agree that it is entertaining and a pleasant time killer. Here are some memorable quotes from the 2009 movie, “The Proposal”.
Margaret Tate: Why didn’t you tell me you’re some kind of Alaskan Kennedy?
Andrew Paxton: We were in the middle of talking about you… for the last 3 years.
Margaret Tate: What am I allergic to?
Andrew Paxton: Pine nuts, and the full spectrum of human emotion.
Margaret Tate: [on sleeping in the same bedroom with Andrew] We love to snuggle. Don’t we honey?
Andrew Paxton: [sarcastically] Huge snugglers.
Grandma Annie: [taking a knitted blanket out of the cabinet] If you get chilly tonight use this. It has special powers.
Margaret Tate: [takes blanket] Oh. What kind of special powers?
Grandma Annie: [smiling] I call it the baby maker.
Margaret Tate: Okay.
Margaret Tate: Better be super careful with this.
Margaret Tate: [surprised to see Andrew at her office] Why are you panting?
Andrew Paxton: Cause I’ve been running.
Margaret Tate: From Alaska.
Andrew Paxton: (about Margaret) Actually I picked up on all her little hints. This woman is about as subtle as a gun.
Andrew Paxton: [sarcastically] You can do this, but you have to stop eating babies while they dream.
Margaret Tate: I am not getting in that boat!
Andrew Paxton: Fine, see you in three days.
Margaret Tate: You know I can’t swim!
Andrew Paxton: Hence… the *boat*.
Andrew Paxton: [upon seeing the puppy run out of the bathroom] barely made it out with my life.
Grandma Annie: [upon being introduced to Margaret] Do you prefer Margaret or “Satan’s Mistress”?
Andrew Paxton: [referring to the story about how he proposed to Margaret] You know what? Actually, Margaret loves telling this story, so I’m just gonna let her go ahead and do that. We should just sit and rapture.
Margaret Tate: Wow, okay… wow, where to begin… the story… Well, um, wow… Okay, well, um, Andrew and I… Andrew and I were about to celebrate our first anniversary together and I knew that he’d been itching to ask me to marry him and he was scared, like a little tiny bird. So, I started leaving him little hints here and there because I knew he wouldn’t have the guts to ask…
Andrew Paxton: That’s not exactly how it happened.
Margaret Tate: No?
Andrew Paxton: No, no, I mean I picked up on all of her little hints… this woman is about as subtle as a gun. Yeah, no what I was worried about was that she might find this little box…
Margaret Tate: Oh, the decoupage box that he made, where he’d taken the time to cut out twenty little pictures of himself, just pasted all over the box. So beautiful! I opened that beautiful little decoupage and out fluttered these tiny little hand cut heart confettis and once they cleared, I looked down and I saw the most beautiful, big…
Andrew Paxton: …fat nothing! No ring.
Grandma Annie: No ring?
Grace Paxton: What?
Andrew Paxton: No, but inside that box, underneath all that crap, a handwritten note with the address to a hotel, date and time. Real Humphrey Bogart type stuff. Masculine. Naturally, Margaret, she thought…
Margaret Tate: I thought he was seeing someone else… so it was a terrible time for me, but I went to that hotel anyway, I went there and I pounded on the door. But the door was already unlocked. As I swung open that door, there he was…
Andrew Paxton: Standing.
Margaret Tate: Kneeling.
Andrew Paxton: Like a man.
Margaret Tate: On a bed of rosebuds, in a tuxedo. Your son. Your son… and he was choking back soft, soft sobs. And when he held back the tears and finally caught his breath, he said to me…
Andrew Paxton: ‘Margaret, will you marry me?’ and she said ‘yep’, the end!
