Top 10 Romantic Movie Moments...

On blah days (like today), nothing tops curling up on the sofa with a can of boiled peanuts, a personalized concoction consisting of equal parts Sprite & Cranberry Juice, a soft blanket, and a stack of movies.  
Here's a list of my favorite romance flicks (in no particular order), along with a memorable quote from each film.
Let the movie marathon ensue!

Slumdog Millionaire
"Jamal: Run away with me.
Latika: And live on what?
Jamal: Love..."   

"I'm going to miss your lips.  And everything attached to them."
-Claire Colburn

Pride & Prejudice
"Miss Elizabeth. I have struggled in vain and I can bear it no longer. These past months have been a torment. I came to Rosings with the single object of seeing you... I had to see you."
-Mr. Darcy

Garden State
"I don't want to waste another moment of my life without you in it."
-Andrew Largeman

The Princess Bride
"As you wish."

Breakfast At Tiffany's
"You're afraid to stick out your chin and say, "Okay, life's a fact, people do fall in love, people do belong to each other, because that's the only chance anybody's got for real happiness." You call yourself a free spirit, a "wild thing," and you're terrified somebody's gonna stick you in a cage. Well baby, you're already in that cage. You built it yourself. And it's not bounded in the west by Tulip, Texas, or in the east by Somali-land. It's wherever you go. Because no matter where you run, you just end up running into yourself."
-Paul Varjak

"I sing you to me."

Beauty & the Beast
"Ohhh, isn't this amazing / It's my favorite part because, you'll see / Here's where she meets Prince Charming / But she won't discover that it's him / 'Til chapter three."

"You know when I said I knew little about love? That wasn't true. I know a lot about love. I've seen it, centuries and centuries of it, and it was the only thing that made watching your world bearable. All those wars. Pain, lies, hate... It made me want to turn away and never look down again. But when I see the way that mankind loves... You could search to the furthest reaches of the universe and never find anything more beautiful. So yes, I know that love is unconditional. But I also know that it can be unpredictable, unexpected, uncontrollable, unbearable and strangely easy to mistake for loathing, and... What I'm trying to say, Tristan is... I think I love you. Is this love, Tristan? I never imagined I'd know it for myself. My heart... It feels like my chest can barely contain it. Like it's trying to escape because it doesn't belong to me any more. It belongs to you. And if you wanted it, I'd wish for nothing in exchange - no gifts. No goods. No demonstrations of devotion. Nothing but knowing you loved me too. Just your heart, in exchange for mine."

"Rose, you're no picnic, all right? You're a spoiled little brat, even, but under that, you're the most amazingly, astounding, wonderful girl, woman that I've ever known..."
