Favorite Movies About Love

Hello, friends.

Since it's Valentine's Day, I decided that I would share with you my top ten love stories that I never get sick of (in no particular order).  I am very critical when it comes to "chick flicks" and these are the ones that I have fallen in love with.  What are some of your all-time favorites?  =)
  1. When Harry Met Sally
    1. Harry Burns: 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 above 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. 
  2. The Princess Bride
    1. Grandpa: Since the invention of the kiss there have been five kisses that were rated the most passionate, the most pure. This one left them all behind. The End. 
    2. Miracle Max: Sonny, true love is the greatest thing, in the world-except for a nice MLT - mutton, lettuce and tomato sandwich, where the mutton is nice and lean and the tomato is ripe 
      [smacks his lips]
      Miracle Max: they're so perky, I love that. 
    3. Inigo Montoya: Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die. 
    4. Westley: Hear this now: I will always come for you.
      Buttercup: But how can you be sure?
      Westley: This is true love - you think this happens every day? 
  3. The Notebook (of course)
    1. Young Noah: Well that's what we do, we fight... You tell me when I am being an arrogant son of a bitch and I tell you when you are a pain in the ass. Which you are, 99% of the time. I'm not afraid to hurt your feelings. You have like a 2 second rebound rate, then you're back doing the next pain-in-the-ass thing. 
      Young Allie: So what? 
      Young Noah: So it's not gonna be easy. It's gonna be really hard. We're gonna have to work at this every day, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, for ever, you and me, every day. Will you do something for me, please? Just picture your life for me? 30 years from now, 40 years from now? What's it look like? If it's with him, go. Go! I lost you once, I think I can do it again. If I thought that's what you really wanted. But don't you take the easy way out. 
    2. Young Noah: If you're a bird I'm a bird. 
    3. Noah: I am nothing special; just a common man with common thoughts, and I've led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten. But in one respect I have succeeded as gloriously as anyone who's ever lived: I've loved another with all my heart and soul; and to me, this has always been enough. 
    4. Duke: That's my sweetheart in there. Wherever she is, that's where my home is. 
    5. Duke: Science only goes so far and then comes God. 
  4. Love Actually
    1. Daniel: Tell her that you love her. 
      Sam: No way! Anyway, they fly tonight. 
      Daniel: Even better! Sam, you've got nothin' to lose, and you'll always regret it if you don't! I never told your mom enough. I should have told her everyday because she was perfect everyday. You've seen the films, kiddo. It ain't over 'til its over. 
  5. Casablanca
    1. Rick: Louis, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship. 
    2. Ilsa: Kiss me. Kiss me as if it were the last time. 
    3. Rick: Of all the gin joints, in all the towns, in all the world, she walks into mine. 
  6. The Quiet Man
    1. Thornton: If anybody had told me six months ago that today I'd be in a graveyard in Innisfree with a girl like you that I'm just about to kiss, I'd have told 'em... 
      Mary Kate Danaher: Oh, but the kisses are a long way off yet! 
      Thornton: Huh? 
      Mary Kate Danaher: Well, we just started a-courtin', and next month, we, we start the walkin' out, and the month after that there'll be the threshin' parties, and the month after that... 
      Thornton: Nope. 
      Mary Kate Danaher: Well, maybe we won't have to wait that month... 
      Thornton: Yup. 
      Mary Kate Danaher: ...or for the threshin' parties... 
      Thornton: Nope. 
      Mary Kate Danaher: ...or for the walkin' out together... 
      Thornton: No. 
      Mary Kate Danaher: ...and so much the worse for you, Sean Thornton, for I feel the same way about it myself! 
      [They kiss. Thunder rolls
  7. Dirty Dancing
    1. Johnny: Nobody puts Baby in a corner. 
    2. Johnny: I'll never be sorry. 
      Baby: Neither will I. 
  8. He's Just Not That Into You
    1. Alex: You're my exception. 
    2. Ben: You may be the best friend I've ever had. 
    3. Gigi: So what now I'm just supposed to turn from every guy who doesn't like me? 
      Alex: Uh. Yeah! 
      Gigi: There's not gonna be anybody left. 
    4. Gigi: I may dissect each little thing and put myself out there so much but at least that means that I still care. Oh! You've think you won because women are expendable to you. You may not get hurt or make an ass of yourself that way but you don't fall in love that way either. You have not won. You're alone. I may do a lot of stupid shit but I'm still a lot closer to love than you are. 
  9. City of Angels
    1. Maggie Rice: I wait all day, just hoping for one more minute with you, and I don't even know you. 
    2. Seth: I would rather have had one breath of her hair, one kiss of her mouth, one touch of her hand, than eternity without it. One. 
  10. Crazy, Stupid, Love
    1. Jacob: I'm going to help you rediscover your manhood. Do you have any idea where you could have lost it? 
    2. Cal: I'm so mad at you. I'm really mad at you for what you did. But I'm mad at myself too. Because I should not have jumped out of that car - I should have fought for you. Because you fight for your soul mates.

  2. I am nothing special; just a common man with common thoughts, and I've led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten.

    This is my absolute favorite quote from above! I love it!
