Like Margaret, Maddie never imagined that she'd fall head over heels for a guy like David, uncultured, ill-bred, uneducated. How can she reconcile her feelings for him with her feelings about being with someone who is a better match for her refined upbringing and tastes? This brings to mind Maddie's description of her previous night's date in "Symphony in Knocked Flat." When she describes the guy to David as, "PhLawyer, MBA, Mr. Success" she sounds decidedly bored. But when she and David set up the fine/fun exchange, she sounds a great deal more excited at the prospect of seeing David rise to the challenge, in a tuxedo, no less. Maddie often suffers from amnesia when it comes to the FACTS of David's tremendous efforts to protect and care for her over the past 2 1/2 years. Those far outweigh the FACTS that she discovers about Robert Murphy ("Bartender"-laden resume, multiple marriages) and the FACTS of David's "rugged exterior." Margaret has managed to ignore Robert's price tag; Maddie finds it far more difficult to do the same for David.
First and foremost, he loves her. Second, Maddie may be a bit reticent, hesitant, and reluctant (all those "ant/ent" words) to dive head first into these uncharted waters; she will need him to guide her and make her feel secure. Last but not least, the fact that they've jumped over many hurdles in the past 2 1/2 years tells him there are no challenges on the horizon they can't tackle head on.
