On New Years Eve, 2005 (December 30th, 2005 real time) Shawn proposed to Mimi at the hospital.
Shawn: Hey, we need to talk.
Mimi: About what?
Shawn: Just watching Belle and Philip go through this, I, I made a big decision.
Mimi: Okay so what's this big decision you've made?
Shawn: I don't know. Just seeing what Belle and Philip are going through right now, it's just helping putting things in perspective, you know? And I keep putting my life on hold and I have to stop doing that because you never know what's going to happen. So Mimi, will you marry me?
Shawn: Mimi Lockhart will you marry me?
Mimi says nothing
Shawn: A good answer would be yes.
Mimi still says nothing
Shawn: Okay. All right. This, this wasn't the reaction I was looking for.
Mimi: No. I'm sorry. I'm just , I'm just, I
Shawn : No no, don't worry about it. This is obviously,
it's too soon. If you don't want to it's okay.
Mimi: No no, it's not that. It's so not that. I mean of course I want to marry you. Yes!
