Lon Monologues

The Notebook (Lon)

LON: So, the way I see it, I have three choices. One, I shoot him. That way, he”s dead, I go to prison, and you”re left with nobody. And let me tell you, right now, that doesn”t seem like such a bad option. Two, I kick the crap out of him. Which is probably not the best choice, because I”m not much of a fighter. Three, I leave you, call off the wedding, play the jilted lover, and expose your indiscretions to the entire community. But all of it”s no good, you see? None of those options give me you. And in spite of everything, I love you. And if you want to work it out, forget that our wedding is in three weeks. Forget what people will say, and they will talk. Believe me, it”s started already. Forget everything. This is about you and me. And if you want to work it out, let”s go home. I meant what I said when I gave you that ring. Look, it”s normal not forget your first love. I love you, Allie, but I want you for myself. I don”t want to have to convince my fiancĂ©e that she should be with me.More Monologues from “The Notebook”

The Notebook (Lon)

LON: You know, I”ve been thinking a lot about why we shouldn”t get married. At first, I couldn”t think of any reasons. But then it dawned on me. The one dark secret that will absolutely be the wedge that keeps us apart. Your parents. Dear old Mom and Dad. You see, here”s the problem. They love me. I am exactly the type of man your parents want you to marry. From the south, have a good job… And an absolutely wonderful dancer, if I do say so myself. If you marry me, your parents will be ecstatic, and you will have lost a lifelong battle of defiance against them. See what I”m saying? I think you have to marry me. Because if you do, your parents will always know the unhappiness you feel for not being able to disappoint them. Imagine the guilt they would feel for not allowing you to choose your husband unwisely. They”d be racked with guilt. They”d be miserable. So even though you”ve technically lost, you”ve really won.More Monologues from “The Notebook”
