When Allie and Noah return to her parents' mansion, Allie's mother Anne calls Noah trash and they ban her from seeing Noah. Noah walks out and Allie chases after him. They have an ensuing argument and break up. The next morning, Anne announces that the family is returning home to Charleston. Allie attempts to contact Noah, but is unable to find him, so she asks Fin to tell Noah that she loves him. When Noah gets the message he rushes to Allie's home, only to find the house gated up and empty.
Noah writes to Allie every day for a year but Anne intercepts the letters such that they never reach Allie. Noah enlists with Fin to fight in World War II, where Fin is killed in battle. Allie volunteers in a hospital for wounded soldiers, where she meets captain Lon Hammond Jr., a young lawyer who comes from old Southern money. After a few years being together, the two become engaged, to the delight of Allie's parents.
When Noah returns from the war, his father has sold their home so that Noah can buy the abandoned house. While visiting Charleston, Noah witnesses Allie and Lon kissing at a restaurant; he convinces himself that if he restores the house, Allie will come back to him. Later, while Allie is being fitted for her wedding dress, Allie is startled to see in the newspaper that Noah has completed the house to the specifications she made years before.
After Allie asks permission from Lon to take a little trip before the wedding, Allie returns to Seabrook to find Noah living in the restored house. The two renew their relationship and make love. Several days later, Anne appears in the morning on Noah's doorstep to warn Allie that Lon has followed her to Seabrook. Anne reveals that, in her youth, she had been in love with a lower-class young man and was still thinking about him; Anne then gives Allie the letters that Noah wrote to her as an admission that she had hidden them from Allie.

Noah suffers a heart attack and is sent to the hospital while Allie is sent to a dementia ward in the same hospital.

- 50 First Dates.
50 First Dates, As if it were the first time in Latin America or 50 first dates in Spain is a romantic comedy movie of the year 2004, starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore and directed by Peter Segal.
It is the second of the three occasions that Sandler and Barrymore have worked together. The first was in the movie The Wedding Singer in 1998, and the third was in the film Blended in 2014.
Henry Roth (Adam Sandler), a marine biologist living in Hawaii, meets Lucy Whitmore (Drew Barrymore), an art teacher, in a cafeteria one morning. Coincidentally, they start a relationship but it is soon discovered that Lucy suffers from anterograde amnesia as a result of an accident suffered a year earlier. The result is that he has no memory of anything that has happened between the day of the accident and the present, because Lucy is unable to convert short-term memory in the long term. Every morning he wakes up having lost all the memory of the previous day. He believes, innocently, that every day is October 13, 2002. His brother and father act as if it were that day, the father's birthday, to prevent Lucy from suffering and discover the accident.
Because of Lucy's special situation, Henry strives to get new and imaginative ways to get Lucy's attention every day, even though his father and brother warn him not to go to the cafeteria and take advantage of the situation. However, Henry fulfilling what he promised, stops going to the cafeteria, but is located on the road between the premises and Lucy's house. The father and brother end up discovering it because Lucy sings Would not It Be Nice while painting the garage if she has met Henry. So, thanks to Henry's determination and Lucy's feeling happy when she sees him, the father and brother end up allowing him to see Lucy. The next day, Henry appears at home with a video explaining the accident and everything that has happened since then.
One morning, Lucy wakes up with Henry, in his bed, after spending the night together. When he does not remember him, he does not recognize him and attacks him. Henry leaves the room and Lucy hears a conversation between Henry and the doctor. They talk about Henry not enjoying his dream (exploring the Arctic) because he has decided to stay with Lucy thinking, hopefully, to remember the day to day. Lucy breaks up with him because she has the feeling that she takes Henry away from her dreams and, to leave no trace, burns her personal diary.
Henry is unable to continue his life without Lucy, but finally decides to go to the Arctic. Lucy's father and brother visit him, and they tell him that she is following his life, aware every day of his illness, and he goes happy always singing his song Would not It Be Nice. Before leaving him alone, the father gives him a CD of the Beach Boys. Henry believes that the fact that he is happy and singing the song is a sign that Lucy reminds him and returns to the center for people with memory problems, where Lucy had decided to live so as not to cause problems to others, giving art classes to others. When Henry enters and asks Lucy if she remembers her, she says no, but asks her to accompany him to her room. To his surprise, Henry sees a room full of paintings of himself in different artistic styles. She tells him that she does not know why she has painted them, but that she dreams of him every night. Henry explains his relationship with her and a kiss ends the scene.
Towards the end of the film, Lucy wakes up in a strange place but when she sees a video she realizes that she has married Henry. As he climbs the stairs, he realizes he is on a boat across the Arctic with Henry, his little daughter Nicole and Marlin, Lucy's father.
The song "Over the Rainbow", sung by Israel Kamakawiwo'ole, sounds while the ship Sea Serpent sails.
