Get the tissue boxes at the ready, ladies, here are 5 of our favourite movie scenes that just ooze with romance…
Dirty Dancing (1987)
Baby: “Me? I’m scared of everything. I’m scared of what I saw, I’m scared of what I did, of who I am, and most of all I’m scared of walking out of this room and never feeling the rest of my whole life the way I feel when I’m with you.”
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 (2011)
Edward Cullen: “It’s an extraordinary thing to meet someone who you can bare your soul to and accept you for what you are. I’ve been waiting, for what seems like a very long time, to get beyond what I am. With Bella I feel like I can finally begin. So I’d like to propose a toast to my beautiful bride. No measure of time with you will be long enough. But let’s start with forever.”
Notting Hill (1999)
William: “I live in Notting Hill. You live in Beverly Hills. Everyone in the world knows who you are, my mother has trouble remembering my name.”
Anna Scott: “I’m also just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her.”
P.S. I Love You (2007)
[reading Gerry’s last letter to Holly]
Daniel: “Dear Holly,
I don’t have much time. I don’t mean literally, I mean you’re out buying ice cream and you’ll be home soon. But I have a feeling this is the last letter, because there is only one thing left to tell you.
It isn’t to go down memory lane or make you buy a lamp, you can take care of yourself without any help from me. It’s to tell you how much you move me, how you changed me. You made me a man, by loving me Holly. And for that, I am eternally grateful…literally.
If you can promise me anything, promise me that whenever you’re sad, or unsure, or you lose complete faith, that you’ll try and see yourself through my eyes. Thank you for the honour of being my wife. I’m a man with no regrets. How lucky am I? You made my life, Holly. But I’m just one chapter in yours. There’ll be more. I promise. So here it comes, the big one. Don’t be afraid to fall in love again.
Watch out for that signal, when life as you know it ends.
P.S. I will always love you.”
The Time Traveller’s Wife (2009)
Henry DeTamble: “I never wanted to have anything in my life that I couldn’t stand losing. But it’s too late for that. It’s not because you’re beautiful and smart. I don’t feel alone anymore. Will you marry me?”
Clare Abshire: “No.”
[Henry looks at her in surprise]
Clare Abshire: “I didn’t mean that. I just wanted to try it, to say it, to assert my own sense of free will, but my free will wants you.”
Henry DeTamble: “So it’s a yes?”
Clare Abshire: “Yes, of course.”
