New York 2011: “A Tricky Proposal”

An aspiring groom designs an elaborate quest leading to the Central Park tree where he and his beloved first kissed.  But as they approach their final destination—she unknowingly carrying her own engagement ring, and he swooning with anticipation—a small problem arises: their special corner of the park has been cordoned off for the New York City Marathon!

The plan he has been preparing for weeks seems about to be scuttled when a kindhearted guard is persuaded to briefly look away, giving the couple a chance to sneak behind the barricades. The box is speedily opened and the ring joyously revealed. “Will you?” he asks. And breathlessly she answers, “Yes, I will!”. Back to the real world they stroll, hand in hand, to live happily ever after.
