The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (2005)
"I'd like to think that fate had a hand in what happened that summer. That it was the pants' destiny to find us. Where they came from and why they chose us... ... well, that will always be a mystery. But perhaps that was part of their miracle. That they sensed in that moment how much we needed them. How much we needed some little bit of faith to hold onto... ... when it seemed like everything we believed in was about to slip away. But wait a minute, I'm getting ahead of myself....We'd been a foursome for as long as I could remember."
"We were there for each other... to understand the things that no one else in the world could...There were some things we would never make sense of...And we were there for those, too...We were there for the things we couldn't face alone...Or the ones we didn't want to face at all. Together, it was as if we formed one single, complete person. Wild, unstoppable Bridget. Shy and beautiful Lena. Tibby, the rebel. And me, Carmen, the writer."
-- "It would be easy to say that the pants changed everything that summer. But looking back now, I feel like our lives changed because they had to, and that the real magic of the pants was in bearing witness to all of this and in somehow holding us together when it felt like nothing would ever be the same again."
The Holiday (2006)
"Most love stories are about people who fall in love with each other. But what about the rest of us? What about our stories, those of us who fall in love alone? We are the victims of the one-sided affair. We are the cursed of the loved ones. We are the unloved ones, the walking wounded. The handicapped without the advantage of a great parking space! Yes, you are looking at one such individual. And I have willingly loved that man for over three miserable years! The absolute worst years of my life! The worst Christmas's, the worst birthdays, New Years Eves brought in by tears and valium. These years that I have been in love have been the darkest days of my life. All because I've been cursed by being in love with a man who does not and will not love me back. Oh God, just the sight of him! Heart pounding! Throat thickening! Absolutely can't swallow! All the usual symptoms."
"It turned out that he wasn't in love with me like I thought. What I'm trying to say is, I understand the feeling as small and as insignificant as humanly possible. And how it can actually ache in places that you didn't know you had inside you. And it doesn't matter how many new haircuts you get or gyms you join or how many glasses of chardonnay you drink with your girlfriends, you still go to bed every night going over every detail and wonder what you did wrong, or how you could have misunderstood. And how in the hell for that brief moment, you could think that you were that happy. And sometimes you can even convince yourself that he'll see the light and he'll show up at your door. And after all that, however long all that may be, you'll go somewhere new. And you'll meet people that will make you feel worthwhile again. And the little pieces of your soul will finally come back. And all that fuzzy stuff, those years of your life that you wasted, that will eventually begin to fade."
"You broke my heart. You acted like somehow it was my fault, my misunderstanding. I was too in love with you to ever be mad at you, so I just punished myself! For years! But you waltzing in here on my lovely Christmas holiday, and telling me that you don't want to lose me whilst you're about to get married, somehow newly entitles me to say: it's over. This, this twisted, toxic thing between us is finally finished! I'm miraculously done being in love with you! Ha! I've got a life to start living. And you're not going to be in it...Now I've got somewhere really important to be, and you have got to get the hell out... I think what I've got is something slightly resembling, gumption."
27 Dresses (2008)
-- "It must be so hard to watch your younger sister get married before you."
-- "I love weddings. I always have."
"You'd rather focus on other people's Kodak moments than make memories of your own!"
-- "27 Dresses. You gotta be kidding me. I don't get it. Alright. You do the thing. You have the dress. Just throw it out. This is a huge closet. You live in New York. You cannot be eating up space like that. But come on, seriously. How much time do you spend doing this for other people? What about, what about you? You don't have any needs?"
"You write the most beautiful things. Do you actually believe in love and marriage and just pretend to be a cynic, or are you actually a cynic who knows how to spin 'romantic crap' for girls like me?"
Valentine's Day (2010)
"When I was a kid, most of the advice that my dad gave me was crap. But there's one thing that he said that was pure genius. He said, if you are ever with a girl that's too good for you, marry her."
"Alex and I were supposed to - have sex today - for the first
time - for both of us. I wanted it to be magical, and I'm realizing
that it's hard to plan something to be magical, you know?"
"There you have it, folks. Young love. Full of promise, full of hope, ignorant of reality."
"When you love someone, you love all of them... you gotta love everything about them, not just the good things but the bad things too. The things that you find lovable and the things you don't."
"I'm glad he's single, 'cause I'm gonna climb that like a tree."
are you smiling?"
"Eww! You had sex with him?"
"You have managed to ruin every event in my wedding, thank you very
"It's coming out of me like lava."

relationship. No emotion. Just sex."
"Why do women think the only way to get men to do what they want is to
"You guys going out now?"
No Strings Attached (2011)
"What I need is someone who's gonna be in my bed at 2 am who I don't have to lie to, or eat breakfast with...Do you wanna do this?...Use each other for sex, at all hours of the day and night. Nothing else...Good"
was exciting. It was like, you were cheering while you were doing it.
You were like, 'look at my dick!'"
The Lucky One (2012)
"I promised myself that if I made it out, I would find that girl and thank her for saving my life."
"You should be kissed every day, every hour, every minute."
