Brad is upset that Katie led him on all this time after he patiently waited for her to get past everything crazy that was going on in her life hoping that one day she would love him back. Brad tells Katie he changed for her and even threw away his little black book because he loved her and if she wasn't capable of loving him back then she shouldn't have accepted his marriage proposal. Brad leaves and Katie chases after him but he has gone down to have a drink at the bar. Brad sees a young couple having champagne and celebrating and decides that seeing Katie smile gives him a wonderful feeling and she shouldn't give up on that feeling so easily.
