Romancing the Month of February Part III: Big Screen Mush

I've never had a year when some newspaper or magazine writer did not publish their own favorite romantic movie lines in celebration of Valentine's Day.  So, in keeping with this tradition, I'm publishing my own.  I'm encouraging you, readers, to please contribute your own favorites under the comments box.  That should make it more interactive, hence, more fun!  

And remember.....you have to say "Awwwwww"  ♥ ♥ ♥  after reading every entry!  
   


*I guarantee there will be tough times.  And I guarantee that at some point, one or both of us will want out.  But I also guarantee that if I don't ask you to be mine, that I'll regret it for the rest of my life...because I know in my heart, you're the only one for me.

*You make me wanna be a better man.

*...the thing is, what I'm trying to say is, very inarticulately, is that, in fact, despite appearances, I like you...Very much.....Just as you are.


*She's more real to me than anything I've ever known.
* One man I can never meet...him I would like to give my whole heart to.

*Fermina I have waited for this opportunity for 51 years, nine months and four days. That is... how long I have loved you from the first moment I cast eyes on you un... until now. 

*Think of love as a state of grace, not the means to anything, but the alpha and omega. An end in itself. 


* I love you...so much, so much...and I want to make you happy.  I need to make you happy, for me to even have a shot at being happy.

*You see I never stopped loving you, even though I couldn't see you.
*Tell Him I'm sorry. I'm too human. Too weak. Tell Him I can't keep my promises. I'm tired of being without you.

*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.


We're not a mistake just because we don't have any money.  And we are gonna last.  You know how I know?....because I still wake up every morning and the first thing I want to do is see your face.


And for the dark, animal side in us---

*You're like my own personal brand of heroin.


And for the finale, here's a great line for those going through a heartbreaking break-up and as a result, have begun questioning their self-worth---

*Losing him does not matter.  It is you who will be found...and cherished."

  1. can i do TV? i remember holding back the tears when Meredith said this. from grey's anatomy. 'Okay, here it is, your choice... it's simple, her or me, and I'm sure she is really great. But Derek, I love you, in a really, really big pretend to like your taste in music, let you eat the last piece of cheesecake, hold a radio over my head outside your window, unfortunate way that makes me hate you, love you. So pick me, choose me, love me.'

  2. pwede bang TV show? i remember being moved by this and uttering 'PICK ME, CHOOSE ME' after she said it. From Grey's Anatomy. Meredith Grey: Okay, here it is, your choice... it's simple, her or me, and I'm sure she is really great. But Derek, I love you, in a really, really big pretend to like your taste in music, let you eat the last piece of cheesecake, hold a radio over my head outside your window, unfortunate way that makes me hate you, love you. So pick me, choose me, love me.

  3. Kath, I love that line too! That was one of the things I was gonna post. "Pick me, choose me, love me."

    The other one is from Never Been Kissed where Michael Vartan's character, teacher Sam Coulson finally arrives to the pitchers mound and says to Drew, "Sorry I´m Iate. It took me forever to get here". Implying that love can sometimes take longer than we think to arrive. Sigh. So romantic.

  4. "I love you. And not, not in a friendly way, although I think we're great friends. And not in a misplaced affection, puppy-dog way, although I'm sure that's what you'll call it. I love you. Very, very simple, very truly. You are the-the epitome of everything I have ever looked for in another human being. And I know that you think of me as just a friend, and crossing that line is-is-is the furthest thing from an option you would ever consider. But I had to say it. I just, I can't take this anymore. I can't stand next to you without wanting to hold you. I can't-I can't look into your eyes without feeling that-that longing you only read about in trashy romance novels. I can't talk to you without wanting to express my love for everything you are. And I know this will probably queer our friendship - no pun intended - but I had to say it, 'cause I've never felt this way before, and I-I don't care. I like who I am because of it. And if bringing this to light means we can't hang out anymore, then that hurts me. But God, I just, I couldn't allow another day to go by without just getting it out there, regardless of the outcome, which by the look on your face is to be the inevitable shoot-down. And, you know, I'll accept that. But I know, I know that some part of you is hesitating for a moment, and if there's a moment of hesitation, then that means you feel something too. And all I ask, please, is that you just - you just not dismiss that, and try to dwell in it for just ten seconds. Alyssa, there isn't another soul on this fucking planet who has ever made me half the person I am when I'm with you, and I would risk this friendship for the chance to take it to the next plateau. Because it is there between you and me. You can't deny that. Even if, you know, even if we never talk again after tonight, please know that I am forever changed because of who you are and what you've meant to me, which - while I do appreciate it - I'd never need a painting of birds bought at a diner to remind me of." --Holden in Chasing Amy
