Moonstruck (1987)


Life. Family. Love.

"Everything seems like nothing to me now against I want you in my bed. I don't care if I burn in hell. I don't care if you burn in hell. The Past and the Future is a joke to me now. I see that they're nothin'. I see they ain't here. The only thing that's here is you - and me...Come upstairs. I don't care why you come. No, that's not what I mean. Loretta, I love you. Not, not like they told you love is and I didn't know this either. But love don't make things nice, it ruins everything! It breaks your heart, it makes things a mess. We, we aren't here to make things perfect. Snowflakes are perfect, stars are perfect. Not us! Not US! We are here to ruin ourselves and, and to break our hearts and love the wrong people and, and DIE! I mean that the storybooks are bulls--t. Now I want you to come upstairs with me and, and GET in my bed. Come on, come on, come on."

The Princess Bride (1987)


Scaling the Cliffs of Insanity, Battling Rodents of Unusual Size, Facing torture in the Pit of Despair. - True love has never been a snap.

"You can't hurt me. Westley and I are joined by the bonds of love. And you cannot track that, not with a thousand bloodhounds, and you cannot break it, not with a thousand swords."

Roxanne (1987)


Roxanne dreamed of a handsome, intelligent, romantic man. C.D. Bales is two out of three... but looks aren't everything!

"...He made me feel romantic, intelligent, feminine. But it wasn't him doing that to me. It was you. All these other men, Charlie, they've got flat, featureless faces. No character! No fire! No nose! Charlie - you have a big nose. You have a beautiful, great big, flesh-and-bone nose! I love your nose! I love your nose, Charlie. I love you, Charlie."


Beaches (1988)


Some Friendships Last Forever

"Oh, Hillary, I'll never forget this as long as I live...You doing the laundry for me. I mean, I hate to do laundry more than anything in the whole world. I think this is probably the nicest thing anybody ever did for me. A man would never do this for you no matter how much he loved you."

"So what do you do with yourself all day, now that you're a housewife? I mean, don't you get bored sitting around the house all day?"
"No, because I don't sit around the house all day. I'm extremely busy."
"Doing what?...How do you keep busy? Doing what?"
"...I spend my time working on various charities. I'm on the board of the Junior League, the State and Homes Preservation Society, I'm a docent at the art museum..."

"...at least I belong to myself, which is more than I can say for you. I'm doing what I set out to do, remember? I'm living a life you didn't have the courage for. So don't give me 'You're not jealous'. You're so jealous you can hardly breathe." and later: Hillary: "I was jealous. I was so jealous of you I couldn't see straight! You did everything you said you were going to do, everything! And your talent, this incredible talent! I can't even yodel!"



Working Girl (1988)


For anyone who's ever won. For anyone who's ever lost. And for everyone who's still in there trying.

"You're the first woman I've seen in one of these things that dresses like a woman, not like a woman thinks a man would dress if he was a woman."

"I have a head for business and a bod for sin. Is there anything wrong with that?"


Always (1989)


They couldn't hear him. They couldn't see him. But he was there when they needed him... Even after he was gone.

"I want to make something clear. If you think you can make a grown-up woman go weak in the knees just by giving her girl-clothes, you're about as dead as your airplane...I'm not going weak in the knees... I've gone weak in the head...I love you...So tell me you love me. Please, please, please, please, tell me, tell me, tell me. Aw, tell me, TELL ME! Tell me, tell me, tell me."

"I know you can't see me, but I'm right here."

"...I love you, Dorinda. I love you. I should have told you that a long time ago...I should have said the words, because I know now, that the love we hold back is the only pain that follows us here. And the memory of that love shouldn't make you unhappy for the rest of your life. I hope you can hear me, because I know this is true, from the bottom of my heart, how good your life is, how good it will be."


Say Anything... (1989)


She's got every thing going for her. He's going for her with every thing he's got.

"What I really want to do with my life - what I want to do for a living - is I want to be with your daughter. I'm good at it."

"I don't believe this. You just broke up with me....She gave me a pen. I gave her my heart and she gave me a pen."



Shirley Valentine (1989, UK)


No one thought she had the courage. The nerve. Or the lingerie.

"I'm going to Greece for the sex. Sex for breakfast, sex for dinner, sex for tea, and sex for supper....It's called the F-plan."

"I think sex is like supermarkets, you know, overrated. Just a lot of pushing and shoving and you still come out with very little at the end."

Steel Magnolias (1989)


Sometimes laughter is a matter of life and death.

"Shelby, as you know, wouldn't want us to get mired down and wallow in this. We should handle it the best way we know how and get on with it. That's what my mind says. I wish somebody would explain it to my heart."

"I'm fine! I can jog all the way to Texas and back, but my daughter can't! She never could! Oh God! I'm so mad, I don't know what to do! I wanna know why! I wanna know WHY Shelby's life is over! I wanna know how that baby will ever know how wonderful his mother was. Will he EVER know what she went through for him? Oh, God, I wanna know whyyyy! Whhhyyyyy?! Lord, I wish I could understand. No! No! No! It's not supposed to happen this way. I'm supposed to go first. I've always been ready to go first. I don't think I can take this. I don't think I can take this. I just wanna hit somebody til they feel as bad as I do! I JUST WANNA HIT SOMETHING! I WANNA HIT IT HARD!"




When Harry Met Sally... (1989)


Can two friends sleep together and still love each other in the morning?


Harry: "There are two kinds of women: high maintenance and low maintenance...You're the worst kind. You're high maintenance, but you think you're low maintenance....(He mimics her ordering behavior) 'Waiter, I'll begin with the house salad, but I don't want the regular dressing. I'll have the balsamic vinegar and oil, but on the side, and then the salmon with the mustard sauce, but I want the mustard sauce on the side.' 'On the side' is a very big thing for you.
Sally: "Well, I just want it the way I want it."
Harry: "I know, high maintenance."

"How about this way? I love that you get cold when it's seventy-one degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle above your nose when you're lookin' at me like I'm nuts. I love that after I spend the 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. And it's not because I'm lonely. And it's not because it's New Year's Eve. I came here tonight because 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."
