More quotes from Notting Hill

Question: Who is the actor at the press conference who says "Are you getting married?" and what is written on the side of William's refrigerator?

Answer: Uncredited actor Taylor Murphy asks "are the two of you getting married?" under the Elvis Costello song, "She." The side of William's refrigerator has a set of magnetized words, found on many refrigerators, which can be arranged and rearranged to form messages for communication to other members of the household, or created just for fun.
