Sam: I had some plans before everything that happened to Ethan. Maybe they should wait, or maybe right now is the perfect time.
Ivy: I'm sorry Sam, I don't understand.
Sam: Let's just say that life has been teaching me a lot of things lately, and the main one is that it's a mistake to put things off. We have to seize our moments since we never know how many we're going to have. Ivy there is something that I have to ask you. . . . . Things haven't always been easy for us.
Ivy: No, Jessica still despises me. She thinks I'm to blame for all of her problems.
Sam: Which isn't fair, and I know that you and Kay don't always see eye to eye.
Ivy: No we don't.
Sam: But the truth is Ivy, I love you, and I've come to realize that I haven't been fair to myself or you by refusing to honor it. We lost each other for the wrong reasons years ago and I'll be damned if I'm going to let that happen again.
Ivy: Sam . . . . .
Sam: Look, there will always be obstacles and situations that will threaten to get in the way, but at some point you have to ignore those because if you don't then you could lose what could be your last chance for happiness.
Ivy: Sam are you saying what I think you're saying?
Sam: If you're thinking that I'm saying that God's given us a second chance, that I want to make the most of it and that I love you and I want to spend the rest of my life with you, then yes, that's what I'm saying. Ivy will you marry me?
Ivy: Sam . . . .
Sam: Is that a yes or a no?
Ivy: If you'd known how long I wanted this, and how long I've dreamed about this. Of course I'll marry you, of course I will.
