Father of the Bride

Synopsis: George Banks (Steve Martin) and his wife, Nina (Diane Keaton), are the proud parents of Annie (Kimberly Williams), but when she returns from studying abroad and announces that she's engaged, their whole world turns upside down, especially that of overprotective George. From meeting the in-laws to wedding plans with an over-the-top consultant (Martin Short) and his flamboyant assistant (B.D. Wong), it seems as if the troubles never end in this update of the classic Spencer Tracy comedy.

Oh...

Uh, Thursday? Sure. Absolutely.

GEORGE:

Okay.

NINA:

Matty, use your other fork.

GEORGE:

Number two. Paul Simon's coming to the Forum and I think I can get us

great seats.

ANNIE:

Um...yeah...sure.

GEORGE:

All right, Paul Simon is an "um...yeah...sure," which I believe

translates to a "yes."

NINA:

Oh, um, honey? Could you please get that bottle of wine in the fridge

for me?

GEORGE:

Sure.

ANNIE:

Dad, wait...um...I don't know.

GEORGE:

You don't want to see Paul Simon?

ANNIE:

No...I do...It's just, um...

NINA:

What is it?

ANNIE:

Well...

NINA:

Is something going on?

ANNIE:

Yes, it is, Mom...uh...God, this is a hard thing to tell

parents...especially when you're my parents...Oh, God!

GEORGE:

Honey, just say it. What's the big deal?

MATT:

Yeah.

ANNIE:

Okay! I met somebody in Rome. Um, he's an American. Uh, he's from

L.A., actually. And um, his name's Brian MacKenzie. And he's this

completely wonderful, wonderful, amazing man, and...well, we starting

seeing each other, a lot...and, um...we fell in love. Ha! Ha! It

actually happened! And, uh, we've decided to get married...which means

that, I'm engaged! Ha! I'm engaged! I'm getting married! HA!

MATT:

Congratulations!

ANNIE:

Thank you.

NINA:

Oh! My! My! Oh, so, oh my...and that's your engagement ring, huh?

ANNIE:

Yes! Yes! We got it at a flea market outside of Rome. The guy we

bought it from said that it's at least a hundred years old...So, Dad.

Stop it. Say something.

GEORGE:

I'm sorry. What did you say?

LITTLE:

ANNIE:

Dad, I met a man in Rome. And he's wonderful and brilliant, and we're

getting married.
