George Banks


Annie: Did I wake you?
George: No, I was up. So what are you doing?
Annie: I couldn't sleep. I just kept thinking about how this was my last night in my bed...in my house...kinda like my last night as a kid. I mean, I've lived here since I was five and I feel like I'm supposed to turn in my key tomorrow. It was so strange packing up my room. You know how you have always trained me never to throw anything away. So like I have all these ratty stuffed animals and yearbooks...my old retainer...all my old magic tricks. And I actually packed it all. I just didn't want to let it go. I mean, I know I can't stay, but it's like I don't want to leave.
George: Well, that's the thing about life...is uh, the surprises. The little things that sneak up on you and grab hold of you. Still happens to me.
[It starts snowing]
Annie: Yikes. What is this?
George: I don't believe it.
Annie: Oh my God. Talk about surprises.
George: It hasn't snowed in L.A. since I was nine.
Annie: Mom's gonna die. What? What is that face?
George: No. Nothing. I was just thinking.
Annie: Oh, this is going to end up costing you more money.
George: No. How I know I'll remember this moment for the rest of my life.


Franck: Oh oh. I bring the wrong color thread. I assumed you'd be wearing a black tuxedo.
George: It is a block tuxedo.
Franck: I don't think so, babe. This tux is navy blue!
George: What are you talking about? Armani doesn't make a blue tuxedo.
Franck: Armani don't also make polyester.

George: [voiceover] All I could think of was the part I had to play. Then suddenly I went blank. I had one line and I couldn't remember it. When the Reverend said, "Who presents this woman?" was I supposed to say, "That's me" or was it "I do"? I couldn't think. I felt every eye in place boring into the back of my neck, waiting for me to screw up, when suddenly, it was upon me.
Reverend: Who presents this woman in holy matrimony?
George: I do. [voiceover] Who presents this woman? This "woman." But she's not a woman, she's just a kid. And she's leaving us...I realized at that moment that I was never going to come again and see Annie at the top of the stairs. Never going to see her again at our breakfast table in her nightgown and socks. I suddenly realized what was happening. Annie was all grown up and leaving us, and something inside began to hurt.

Cameron: By the way, great wedding, Mr. Banks. And don't worry. I didn't eat anything.
George: That makes two of us.
