Funny Girl (1968)


People who see FUNNY GIRL are the luckiest people in the world!

(Looking in the mirror) "Hello, gorgeous."

"I see him as he is. I love him as he is!"

Love Story (1970)


Love means never having to say you're sorry.

"What can you say about a twenty-five-year-old girl who died? That she was beautiful and brilliant? That she loved Mozart and Bach, the Beatles, and me?"

"Would you please do something for me, Ollie? (He kissed her hand) Would you please hold me? (He half-heartedly hugged her) No, I mean really hold me. Next to me."


The Way We Were (1973)


Everything seemed so important then .. even love!

"You're the best friend I ever had, and it would help me so much if you could just come over and see me through tonight."

"If I push too hard, it's because I want things to be better. I want us to be better. I want you to be better. Sure, I make waves. I mean, you have to. And I'll keep making them until you're every wonderful thing you should be and will be. You'll never find anyone as good for you as I am, to believe in you as much as I do or love you as much."

"Wouldn't it be lovely if we were old? We'd have survived all this. Everything would be easy and uncomplicated; the way it was when we were young."


The Goodbye Girl (1977)


Thank you Neil Simon for making us laugh at falling in love ... again.

"And I don't - like - the panties - hanging -- on -- the rod!"

The Turning Point (1977)


The generations change. But the choices remain the same.

"I thought it would make you happy if your daughter became what you wanted to be and never could be."

"You weren't good enough and you knew it. That's why you married Wayne...So much so that you said to hell with your career...And then got pregnant to show that you meant it...You got married because you knew you were second-rate and you got pregnant because Wayne was a ballet dancer, and in those days, that meant queer. So you had to prove he was a man so you had a baby.... That's the god-damn truth and you know it. You saddled him with a baby and blew his career. And now she's grown up and better than you ever were, and you're jealous..."


Deedee: "Oh, Emma... if only she knew everything we know..."
Emma: "Deedee, it wouldn't matter a damn..."


Grease (1978)


Grease is the word.

"Men are rats. Listen to me, they're fleas on rats. Worse than that, they're amoebas on fleas on rats."

Nine to Five (1980)


The power behind the throne.
Getting even is a full-time job.
They're showing the Boss who's the BOSS!

"Well, that explains it. That's why these people treat me like some dime store floozy...They think I'm screwin' the boss...And you just love it, don't you? It gives you some sort of cheap thrill like knockin' over pencils and pickin' up papers...Get your scummy hands off of me. Look, I've been straight with you from the first day I got here. And I put up with all your pinchin' and starin' and chasin' me around the desk 'cause I need this job, but this is the last straw...Look, I got a gun out there in my purse, and up until now, I've been forgivin' and forgettin' because of the way I was brought up. But I'll tell you one thing: if you ever say another word about me or make another indecent proposal, I'm gonna get that gun of mine and I'm gonna change you from a rooster to a hen with one shot! Don't think I can't do it."

Somewhere in Time (1980)


Beyond fantasy. Beyond obsession. Beyond time itself... he will find her.

"Is it you?"

"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 have lived without it all my life. Is it any wonder, then, I failed to recognise you? You, who brought it to me for the first time. Is there any way that 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."


An Officer and a Gentleman (1982)


Life gave him nothing, except the courage to win...and a woman to love.

"You know something, you ain't nothin' special. You got no manners, you treat woman like whores and if you ask me you got no chance of being no officer."

"I dare you not to fall in love with me. I mean, how can you resist? I'm like candy."

"Way to go, Paula, way to go!"


Sophie's Choice (1982)


Between the innocent, the romantic, the sensual, and the unthinkable. There are still some things we have yet to imagine.

"Don't make me choose! I can't!...Take my little girl! Take my baby."

The Big Chill (1983)


In a cold world, you need your friends to keep you warm!
The story of eight old friends searching for something they lost, and finding that all they needed was each other.

"They're either married or gay. And if they're not gay, they've just broken up with the most wonderful woman in the world, or they've just broken up with a bitch who looks exactly like me. They're in transition from a monogamous relationship and they need more space. Or they're tired of space, but they just can't commit. Or they want to commit, but they're afraid to get close. They want to get close, and you don't want to get near them....I don't know. I'm goin' easy. I've been out there dating for twenty years. I've gotten where I can tell in the first fifteen seconds if there's a chance in the world."

Flashdance (1983)


Take your passion... And make it happen!
Something happens when she hears the music...it's her freedom. It's her fire. It's her life.

"Don't you understand? You give up your dream, you die."

"I don't want you buying me anything. I don't want you buying me, period!"

Terms of Endearment (1983)


Come to Laugh, Come to Cry, Come to Care, Come to Terms.

"It's after ten. I don't see why she has to have this pain...It's time for her shot. Do you understand? Do something! All she has to do is hold on until ten, and it's past ten. She's in pain. My daughter is in pain. Give her the shot. Do you understand me? Give my daughter the shot!
"
