  • When Harry Met Sally: “I love that you get cold when it’s 71 degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle in your nose when you’re looking at me like I’m nuts. I love that after I spend the day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes. And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night. And it’s not because I’m lonely, and it’s not because it’s New Year’s Eve. I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.”– Harry (Billy Crystal) to Sally (Meg Ryan)

This used to be my specialty. I was good in a living room. Send me in there, I’ll do it alone. And now I just … I don’t know … but our little company had a good night tonight. A really big night. But it wasn’t complete, it wasn’t nearly close to being in the same vicinity as complete, because I couldn’t share it with you. I couldn’t hear your voice, or laugh about it with you. I missed my wife. We live in a cynical world, and we work in a business of tough competitors, I love you. You complete me. And I just …Dorothy: Shut up. Just shut up. You had me at hello. – Jerry (Tom Cruise) to Dorothy (Renee Zellweger)

  • Shall We Dance?: “We need a witness to our lives. There’s a billion people on the planet … I mean, what does any one life mean? But in a marriage, you’re promising to care about everything.

Your life will not go unwitnessed because I will be your witness.’”

    – Beverly (Susan Sarandon)

  •  Ten Things I Hate About You: “I hate the way you talk to me, and the way you cut your hair. I hate the way you drive my car. I hate it when you stare. I hate your big dumb combat boots, and the way you read my mind. I hate you so much it makes me sick; it even makes me rhyme. I hate it, I hate the way you’re always right. I hate it when you lie. I hate it when you make me laugh, even worse when you make me cry. I hate it that you’re not around, and the fact that you didn’t call. But mostly I hate the way I don’t hate you. Not even close, not even a little bit, not even at all.” 

           – Kat (Julia Stiles) to Patrick (Heath Ledger)
