肖恩：现在，我觉得你知道我对你的感觉 。我疯狂地爱上了你 。在我的内心深处，你就是我的灵魂伴侣 。
Ayako:That's really sweet of you to say.
Sean:And because I feel the way I do, I would like to ask you a very important question.
Ayako:Okay, but why are you getting down on one knee?
Sean:Ayako, would you marry me?
Ayako:Marry you?! Is this a marriage proposal?
Sean:Yes, and before you say anything else, I just want you to know that I've given this a lot of thought and I'm convinced that we're made for each other.
Ayako:I don't think...
Sean:And you just have to say the word and we could elope tomorrow, if you wanted to.
Sean:Or, if you prefer, we can have a lavish wedding. I'm not picky. I just want us to be husband and wife.
肖恩：或者，如果你喜欢的话，我们可以举行盛大的婚礼 。这些我都不挑剔，只要你我成为夫妻就行 。
