Neil has REALLY become annoying and pitiful. Hey, I'm a hopeless romantic too, but he is what, almost 50 and sulking about his failed attempt at marrying Leslie. Has he forgotten how he broke up his brother, Malcolm's relationship to marry and impregnate Sophia? Where is she now? What happened to their happy marriage? Leslie was always honest with him and he thought he could change her mind. One thing I have learned is LISTEN to a grown person when they tell you their true feelings, especially when it comes to the subject of marriage. That will save you on the disappointment later.
