Preview of Marriage to Ike Turner Full Transcript
Priest
While each man thinks he knows love... love, we have learned, is a mystery. That's what makes today so special. We witness two people choosing to marry ones they truly love.
John Beckwith
Whoa, whoa, hey!
Jeremy Grey
Hey! Hey! He's the best man.
Secretary Cleary
Yeah.
John Beckwith
Thank you.
Sack Lodge
I don't believe this.
Jeremy Grey
Hat in hand.
John Beckwith
I'm sorry I'm late.
Jeremy Grey
I'm glad you're here.
John Beckwith
And I'm sorry I called you white trash. I didn't...
Jeremy Grey
John, apology accepted.
John Beckwith
Okay. And I'm sorry I called you a hillbilly, I don't even know what that meant.
Jeremy Grey
John, it's okay. Do you mind if I get married now?
John Beckwith
No, go ahead.
Jeremy Grey
Okay.
John Beckwith
Hi, Todd.
Priest
Although we may choose whom we marry... we don't always choose...
John Beckwith
Psst. Claire, I'm not here to bother you, I just came to be his best man. Don't worry about me. Pretend I'm not here.
Claire Cleary
Okay.
John Beckwith
I'm not a nut. You look really pretty, by the way. That's all I'm gonna say. I can't stop thinking about you. It's all I think about and I don't know what to do.
Jeremy Grey
Ahem.
John Beckwith
I'm sorry.
Priest
You see, love is mysterious...
John Beckwith
God, I miss you.
Claire Cleary
Okay, excuse me, I'm sorry.
John Beckwith
Claire, hold it a second. Claire, Claire. Claire, will you wait just a second? All I wanted was a second alone so I could try to explain things. But I've never gotten that chance. Maybe I don't deserve it. So here goes. For longer than I care to remember, my business has been crashing weddings. I crashed weddings to meet girls. Business was good. I met a lot of girls. And it was childish, it was juvenile...
Claire Cleary
And pathetic.
John Beckwith
Yeah, that's probably the best word to describe it. But you know what? It also led me to you. So it's hard for me to completely regret it. And that person that you met back at your folks' place, that was really me. Maybe not my name... I'm John Beckwith, by the way. Or my job... but the feelings we felt... the jokes, the stupid laughs, that was all me. I've changed. I've realized something. I crashed a funeral earlier, and I...
Claire Cleary
Wha...?
Jeremy Grey
Oh, Jesus.
John Beckwith
It wasn't my idea. I was basically dragged to it. I went with Chazz, who you forgot to tell me is totally insane. He also might be a genius, because it actually does work. He's cleaning up.
Claire Cleary
John.
John Beckwith
I'm sorry. I'm sorry, I'm sorry. That's neither here nor there. And I see this widow and she's a wreck. She's just lost the person she loves the most in this world. And I realized we're all gonna lose the people we love. That's the way it is. But not me, not right now. Because the person I love the most is standing right here... and I'm not ready to lose you yet. Claire, I'm not standing here asking you to marry me. I'm just asking you... not to marry him. And maybe take a walk. Take a chance.
Sack Lodge
Wow. Wow! This congregation really doesn't care about how depressing your life is, John, okay? Claire, baby, could you go back up on the altar so we can have a wedding?
Claire Cleary
I'm sorry. I am.
Sack Lodge
What?
Claire Cleary
I can't marry you.
Sack Lodge
Secretary... your daughter's a little...
Secretary Cleary
Sack, I've always liked you... so I put up with your stories about scallops and otters and it's all good because you seemed to make her happy and that's what matters to me most. But this is her decision. I stand by my daughter.
Sack Lodge
You don't know shit. Claire, go back up on the altar.
Claire Cleary
No.
Sack Lodge
Claire! Claire, get up on that altar right now.
Claire Cleary
Stop it.
Sack Lodge
Claire, get your fucking ass on that altar right now!
John Beckwith
Wow, getting a nice preview of what marriage is gonna be like with Ike Turner here.
Claire Cleary
Sack!
John Beckwith
Oh, God, here it goes.
Jeremy Grey
Share that with the Dalai Lama, jackass.
John Beckwith
I think I had him.
Jeremy Grey
I know you did. Just go kiss the broad.
John Beckwith
Claire Cleary
Yes.
Secretary Cleary
Just wonderful.
Chazz Reinhold
So damn beautiful. With every death there comes rebirth. It's the circle of life.
Girls
Oh.
Chazz Reinhold
We're gonna be all right. Hey. Hey.
