Romeo & Juliet
Did my heart love till now?
Forswear it, sight!
For I ne’er saw true beauty
till this night!
Parting is such sweet sorrow,
that I shall saw goodnight,
till it be morrow!
But soft! What light through
yonder window breaks?
It is the east and Juliet is the sun.
See, how she leans her cheek
upon that hand!
O, that I were a glove upon that hand,
That I might touch that cheek!
This bud of love,
by summer’s ripening breath,
May prove a beautious flower when next we meet.
Love’s heralds should be thoughts
O, she doth teach the torches to burn bright!
If I profane with my unworthiest hand
This holy shrine, the gentle fine is this: My lips, two blushing pilgrims, ready stand To smooth that rough touch with a tender kiss.
What’s in a name?
That which we call a rose
by any other name would smell as sweet.
O, speak again, bright angel!
Shakespeare In Love
- “I will have poetry in my life. And adventure. And love. Love above all.

Shall We Dance
- “We need a witness to our lives. There’s a billion people on the planet….. I mean, what does any one life mean? But in a marriage, you’re promising to care about everything. The good things, the bad things, the terrible things, the mundane things….. all of it, all the time, every day. You’re saying ‘Your life will not go unnoticed because I will notice it. Your life will not go unwitnessed because I will be your witness'”.
- “The rumba is the vertical expression of a horizontal wish. You have to hold her like the skin on the thigh is your reason for living. Let her go, like your heart’s being ripped from your chest. Throw her back, like you’re going to have your way with her, right here on the dance floor. And then finish like she’s ruined you for life.”
Sleepless In Seattle
- “Well, it was a million tiny little things that, when you add them all up, they meant that 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.”
Somewhere In Time
- Elise’s soliloquy:
“The man of my dreams has almost faded now. The one I have created in my mind. The sort of man each woman dreams of in the deepest and most secret reaches of her heart. I can almost see him now before me. What would I say to him, if he were really here? Forgive me, I have never known this feeling. I’ve lived without it all my life. Is it any wonder, then, that I fail to recognize you? You– who brought it to me for the first time. Is there any way I can tell you how my life has changed? Any way at all to let you know what sweetness you have given me? There is so much to say…I cannot find the words. Except for these– I love you! Such would I say to him, if he were really here.”

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 a 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.”

You’ve Got Mail
- “I like to start my notes to you as if we’re already in the middle of a conversation. I pretend that we’re the oldest and dearest friends- as opposed to what we actually are- people who don’t know each other’s names and met in a chat room where we both claimed we’d never been before. What will NY152 say today, I wonder. I turn on my computer, I wait impatiently as it boots up. I go online, and my breath catches in my chest until I hear three little words: You’ve got mail. I hear nothing, not even a sound on the streets of New York, just the beat of my own heart. I have mail. From you.”
