“You Should Be Kissed, and Often”
Gone with the Wind’s tempestuous love affair between Scarlett O’Hara and Rhett Butler has stood the test of time, still causing romantic sighs almost 80 years after it was released. There are many famous quotes from the movie, including Rhett’s heartbreaking, “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.” But if it’s romance you’re after, there’s this line Rhett says to Scarlett that perfectly encapsulates their will-they/won’t-they romance: “No, I don’t think I will kiss you – although you need kissing badly. That’s what’s wrong with you. You should be kissed, and often, and by someone who knows how.”
“I Cannot Find the Words”
The 1980 film Somewhere in Time is about an all-encompassing romance that spans the space of time. Some years after theater student Richard Collier is strangely given a watch by an old woman who says, “Come back to me,” he finds himself at a hotel needing a break from his stressful life and a recent separation from his girlfriend. He falls in love with a portrait of a woman in the hotel, a beautiful actress from the 1910s named Elise McKenna. Obsessed with her, Richard manages to traverse time to be with her and, although it doesn’t go smoothly, he woos Elise and she falls in love just as hard. At one point she says to him, “Is there any way that I can tell you how my life has changed? Any way at all to know the sweetness you have given me? There is so much to say. I cannot find the words. Except for these: I love you.”
“You Want the Rest of Your Life to Start as Soon as Possible”
The classic 1989 movie When Harry Met Sally is about an unconventional and slowly unfolding romance between two quirky characters, Harry Burns and Sally Albright. The two try to be just friends – even spending years apart and in love with other people – but they’re always drawn to each other. Finally, toward the end of the movie, Harry confesses his love with this memorable quote: “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.”
