Claire Morgan Ball Drop Speech

Claire: "It's suspended there to remind us before we pop the champagne and celebrate the New Year, to stop and reflect on the year that has gone by. To remember both our triumphs and our missteps - our promises made, and broken. The times we opened ourselves up to great adventures - or closed ourselves down, for fear of getting hurt. Because that's what New Year's is all about: getting another chance. A chance to forgive, to do better, to do more, to give more, to love more. And stop worrying about 'what if' and start embracing what would be. So when that ball drops at midnight - and it will drop - let's remember to be nice to each other, kind to each other. And not just tonight but all year long."

Claire Morgan gives this heartfelt speech when the famed ball in Times Square has a bit of a malfunction. It's a great quote, probably one of the best in the movie - and worth remembering here.

Narrator: It only happens once a year: New Year's Eve. It's a time when hopeless can be romantic, and a resolution can become a revelation. And when one night can change everything.

New Year's Eve is either the best holiday or the worst: Either you've got a hot date that you totally love or you meet someone hot that you totally get busy with - or you break up, get dumped, and wind up sitting alone, in front of the TV, watching 'New Year's Rockin' Eve' all by yourself. In this movie, I seriously doubt the latter happens...
