In 1876, Leopold Alexis Elijah Walker Gareth Thomas Mountbatten, Duke of Albany and inventor of the elevator, is a stifled man and dreamer. Leopold happens upon a time portal, by which he's able to find his way to present day and also find his soul mate Kate.
1. Says things like this:
Kate: Why are you standing?
Leopold: I am accustomed to stand when a lady leaves the table.
Leopold: Otis always told me love is a leap. Lamentably, I was never inspired to jump.
Leopold: What has happened to the world? You have every convenience and comfort, yet no time for integrity.
Leopold: Marriage is the promise of eternal love. As a man of honor I cannot promise eternally what I've never felt momentarily.
2. Wins a woman who feels like this about love:
Kate: I'm not very good with men.
Leopold: Perhaps you haven't found the right one.
Kate: Maybe. Or, uh... maybe that whole love thing is just a grown-up version of Santa Claus; just a myth we've been fed since childhood. So, we keep buying magazines, joining clubs, and doing therapy and watching movies with hit pop songs played over love montages all in a pathetic attempt to explain why our love Santa keeps getting caught in the chimney.
3. Good with a sword and with wit
4. Great on a horse, well-dressed, man of conviction
5. Knows his opera and his science
6. Hasn't allowed invention to spoil imagination
Travels between centuries, which will make it harder than usual to spend time together
Doesn't understand the simplest of things, like a toaster
Most of your friends will think he's gay
Has one SERIOUSLY long name. Monograms will be a problem.
As awesome as he his, your ex-boyfriend won't be jealous and will still say things like:
Kate: I wasted my best years on you.
Stuart: Those were your best?
