Top 10 Valentine-y Movie Quotes

10.  Some Kind of Wonderful (1987)
"You look good wearing my future."  - Keith

9.  When Harry Met Sally (1989)
"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." 

8.  Eclipse (2010)

"You wouldn't have to change for me Bella. I'm in love with you, and I want you to pick me instead of him." - Jacob

7.  50 First Dates (2004)

Lucy: “I don’t know who you are, Henry… but I dream about you almost every night.  Why?”
Henry: “What would you say if I told you that notebook you read every day used to have a lot of stuff about me in it?”
Lucy: “I would say that that makes a lot of sense.”
Henry: “You erased me from your memories because you thought you were holding me back from having a full and happy life. But you made a mistake. Being with you is the only way I could have a full and happy life. You’re the girl of my dreams… and apparently, I’m the man of yours.”

6.  The Notebook (2004)

“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, forever, 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.” - Noah

5.  Letters to Juliet (2010)
Dear Claire, "What" and "If" are two words as non-threatening as words can be. But put them together side-by-side and they have the power to haunt you for the rest of your life: What if? What if? What if? I don't know how your story ended but if what you felt then was true love, then it's never too late. If it was true then, why wouldn't it be true now? You need only the courage to follow your heart. I don't know what a love like Juliet's feels like - love to leave loved ones for, love to cross oceans for but I'd like to believe if I ever were to feel it, that I will have the courage to seize it. And, Claire, if you didn't, I hope one day that you will. All my love, Juliet 

4.  Pride and Prejudice (2005)

MR DARCY:  How are you this evening, my dear?
ELIZABETH:  Very well. Only, I wish you would not call me ‘my dear.’
ELIZABETH:  Cause it’s what my father always calls my mother when he’s cross about something.
MR DARCY:  What endearments am I allowed?
ELIZABETH:  Well, let me think. ‘Lizzy’ for every day. ‘My pearl’ for Sundays, and ‘Goddess Divine,’ but only on very special occasions.
MR DARCY:  And what shall I call you when I’m cross? Mrs Darcy?
ELIZABETH:  No. No. You may only call me ‘Mrs Darcy’ when you are completely, perfectly and incandescently happy.
MR DARCY:  But how are you this evening, Mrs Darcy? Mrs Darcy. Mrs Darcy. Mrs Darcy.

3.  Sleepless in Seattle (1993)
“It was a million tiny little things that, when you added them all up, they meant we were supposed to be together … and I knew it. I knew it the very first time I touched her. It was like coming home. .. only to no home I’d ever known … I was just taking her hand to help her out of a car and I knew. It was like … magic.” - Sam

2.  City of Angels

“I would rather have had one breath of her hair, one kiss from her mouth, one touch of her hand, than eternity without it.” - Seth

1.  Pride and Prejudice (2005)

“…If, however, your feelings have changed, I will have to tell you: you have bewitched me, body and soul, and I love … I love … I love you. I never wish to be parted from you from this day on.”


  1. Absolute favorite line is the one from "The Notebook" - love that movie!!! Hope you had a good one! :)

  2. I agree with most of your list in fact made Megan watch Some Kind of Wonderful with me a few weeks ago. Wondering why you put the 2005 Pride & Prejudice on twice? The A&E version should definitely be on there. I would also add Everafter and Notting Hill!

  3. This definitely isn't a comprehensive list. And I love every version of P&P, but the 2005 Darcy is my favorite. My all time favorite scene in any movie EVER is the one in the 2005 P&P where Darcy helps Elizabeth into the carriage and touches her hand and then walks away and he's totally affected by it's electric for him. But there's no quote with that, so I couldn't add it to this list. Maybe next Valentines Day. :)

  4. Thanks for this post, it is great
