Leap Year


‘Leap Year’ is a ‘top 10’ movie for me. It always makes me smile, and this is just the perfect time to watch it.

Magical things happen when we let life surprise us, and we surrender control.



Anna: Jeremy and me, it didn’t work out.

Declan: I’m sorry.

Anna: Well, when my 60 seconds came around, I realized I had everything I ever wanted, but nothing I really needed. And I think that what I need is here. And I came all this way to see if maybe you might think so too. And if you do… Well, I don’t really have any plans past that, which is new for me. So, Declan O’Callaghan, and I should probably learn your middle name, here is my proposal. I propose we *not* make plans. I propose we give this thing a chance and let it work out how it works out. So what do you say? Do you want to *not* make plans with me?

Declan: [confusion becomes amusement, and he walks away]

Anna: [gathers herself, and then to the restaurant patrons] I guess that’s an Irish “no”.

[and rushes out of he restaurant]

Declan: [catches up with her at the sea] Mrs. O’Brady Callaghan. Where the hell are you going?

Anna: You said no.

Declan: I did not say no. I didn’t say anything.

Anna: You walked away.

Declan: I was gettin’ somethin’

Anna: Really. That was a good time to go get something?

Declan: Yeah, it was actually. I was gettin’ this.

[pulls a ring from his pocket]

Declan: I wouldn’t be holding this ring if it weren’t for you. I reject your proposal. I don’t wanna *not* make plans with you. I wanna *make* plans with you.
