(Movie theatre as the lights go low)
(Barefoot in the Park theme playing)
(Movie in the background and audience murmuring and responding to the movie)
P: I love you baby
L: I love you too.
(Paul puts his arm around Linda and she places her head on Paulís shoulder)
P: Would you marry me?
L: (Surprised she lifts her head) Huh?
P: Would you marry me?
L: Weíll talk about it later, watch the movie.
(Linda and Paul kiss, Linda replaces her head on Paulís shoulder. Paul takes Lindaís hand and holds it.) (Movie Ends)
(Paul and Linda get up and leave the theatre to the car. Paul opens Lindaí s door and she gets in then Paul goes around to the other side and enters the car.) (Paul drives the car out of the parking lot.)
P: So Lin, do you fancy getting married?
L: Iíd love to get married. I love you and Heather loves having you around. Plus youíre a great father figure, which is important.
P: True but thatís not why I want to get married.
L: Oh, is that so?
P: No, well yes, I mean just because youíre pregnant by me doesnít mean that we have to get married, itís the proper thing to do. Thatís what happened to you with Mel. You were thrown into something.
L: Yeah but so why do you?
P: Most importantly I love you with all my heart and soul.
L: Sounds worthy ok then, ďYesĒ.
(Paul rummages around in the console and presents Linda with a ring)
P: Then I suppose you should wear this.
L: Oh, Paul itís beautiful! You shouldnít have!
P: But I wanted to
(Paul pulls up to the house)
L: Oh, here we are, hope Heatherís asleep.
(Paul and Linda get out and walk to the house)
P: Patti, weíre back!
Patti: Oh hi, Linda, Paul. Heather has been asleep since nine.
L: Thanks so much for keeping an eye on her.
Patti: Youíre welcome, bye.
P: We should catch some shut-eye too.
