think he has to worry about that. Seth leaves and Taylor stops by to visit
Ryan. She tells him the whole situation about the book and begs Ryan not to
read it. Ryan agrees not to, but jokes that a movie might be made about it.

quite a bit to try to make him more “acceptable” to her French friends.

Neil did not give them permission to get married. He tells her that he knew
that going up there, and was hoping to get out of things. Now, however, he
realizes how much he loves Summer, and he wants to stay engaged so that they
can get married someday. Summer tells him that she has no idea who she is,
