As students and the couple are about to take a photo in front of the officer's patrol car, he scoots over to his girlfriend, Aliza Sandler, on one knee with a ring box.

Jay asked Sandler to marry him. Sandler was so surprised that she nearly (accidentally) knocked over a nearby student before saying yes.
