Big: You know, Manhattan has a lot of beautiful women.
Carrie: What an amazing observation!
Big: But the thing is, after awhile, you just wanna be with the one who makes you laugh.

He definitely seems ready to settle down. Just look at his response to Ashley dad when he asks him if he wants kids. Most guys I know don't openly admit to wanting kids until they're ready to have them.
While I admit to thinking this EVERY week. Next week will be really telling for the Brad/Emily connection. I think the whole "will she let him meet her daughter" was totally blown up to huge proportions in Brad's mind. I'm not saying it's not a huge step. That is a big hurdle. But I think Brad put a lot of pressure on himself too. Personally, I would think it would be difficult to really make any definite decisions about a future with Emily until they had crossed that hurdle.
However, now that has been crossed and reality seeps in.....I've met your daughter, we're passed that, now it's about us. You and me. Does our relationship have what it takes to make this work? To be an immediate family?
That being said, this week I really saw it with Chantal too. She had a great HTD. I saw what others have been seeing in how relaxed he is with her. It "softened" their relationship for me--as in not all the tongue kissing/heat. Not that that isn't important in a relationship. I think they could be great together.
So......I was watching the hometown dates again just to make sure I didn't make any mistakes this time with my v/o, p/i analysis. And, lo and behold, I left out something that just might be important On Chantal's date, Brad makes the statement:
"To say that I respect Chantals father is the biggest understatement I could make" (don't see him making this statement) and then we see him make the statement "So I want him to give me his blessing." The problem is, he isn't wearing his clothes from Chantal's date when he says the second part. Anybody good at screen cap analysis that can tell me when he made that second statement?
BTW, Brad is wearing what he wore on Shawntel's date when he says the bit about "wanting his blessing" so it may have been in reference to Shawntel's father and not Chantal's.
To me that said... SOMEBODY tell me what to do.... anybody. Wait, I can't find anybody or the DOOR!!! Poor Poor Brad.
