George Bailey

Blogger's Note: Thanks to Natalie for this post!

George Bailey is the protagonist in the film It's A Wonderful Life, portrayed by all-American good-boy Jimmy Stewart. George Bailey repeatedly puts his own plans and desires aside for the good of his family, his father's business, and his town. After a hasty wish that he had never been born, his guardian angel shows him exactly what life would be like without him.

Extremely loyal to his family
Good father
Good dancer
Would love to travel, if he could get the time off
Takes on the town Grinch
Has his own guardian angel
Has made an impact on his entire town just by living in it and being the wonderfully ordinary man he is

Works extremely hard at a low-paying, seemingly thankless job
That flighty Uncle Billy
Tends to drink when stressed
A weekend away is pretty much out of the question
Might commit suicide (if he believes it's for the good of his family)
Has a "martyr-ish" attitude at times

Jim Craig

Jim Craig, AKA The Man From Snowy River, is the hero of the film "The Man from Snowy River." This 1982 film made in Australia was based on the Banjo Paterson poem of the same name. Jim is orphaned (as a grown man) and forced to fight for his right to live on the land his father once owned. Jim battles the troublesome Brumby Mob, wild horses and ornery cattle, as well as the judgmental father and antagonizing would-be-suitor of the woman he loves.

Dude can ride him some horses.
The way he says "Jess" will melt your heart.
Wears a super cool hat (doesn't he, NT?)
Can tame a horse without breaking his spirit...and does the same with women.
Hails from Snowy River, God's country for sure.
You won't have any in-laws to deal with.

Is in love with a woman with the biggest jawbone I've ever seen.
Sometimes puts cattle driving ahead of his woman.
Is defiant to a fault.
Probably stinks from being in the wild for weeks.

Marry, Date, or Dump

This selection of Speak Now...was inspired by last night's Emmy's broadcast (which was less than inspiring to say the least). Who's it gonna be, ladies? Drama, Comedy, or Reality?

Patrick Dempsey, Steve Carell, Jeff Probst

Gabriel Allon is the heroic protagonist and literary creation of best-selling fiction writer Daniel Silva. Gabriel is an agent/assassin in Mossad, the secret intelligence service of the State of Israel. Gabriel works undercover as restorer of priceless works of art, specializing in the Old Masters.

Doesn't kill for fun, but gets the job done.
Made things right after Black September.
Is at home in Israel or in Italy, where he's friends with the Pope.
Is highly intelligent, speaks several languages, knows his art.
Faithful to his loved ones; a reluctant assassin.
Understands the threat of Islamic terrorists and doesn't let bureaucratic cowards get in his way.

Has a guilt complex he can't rid himself of.
Can't say no to the Memuneh.
Is getting up in years.
Doesn't love Sarah back.
Gets beat up (badly) in nearly every plot.
I have no idea what he looks like. (That's what imaginations are for.)

Leopold Mountbatten

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?
