The American President (1995)
Before Sunrise (1995)
"You know, I have this awful paranoid thought that feminism was mostly invented by men so that they could like, fool around a little more."
"And you know how they say we're all each others' demons and angels? Well, she was literally a Botticelli angel. Just telling me that everything was gonna be okay...Yeah, she was sitting next to this very weird couple who started fighting so she had to move. She sat right across the aisle from me. So, we started to talk, and uh, she didn't like me much at first. She's super smart, very passionate, um...and beautiful. And I was so unsure of myself. I thought everything I said sounded so stupid."
"But then the morning comes, and we turn back into pumpkins, right?"
Boys on the Side (1995)
The Bridges of Madison County (1995)
"You know, after you leave here I'm gonna have to go on sitting here for the rest of my life, and wonder what happened to me ... if anything happened at all. And I'm gonna have to wonder if you're gonna be sitting in some housewife's kitchen in Romania or somewhere ... and telling her about your world of good friends, and you'll secretly include me in that group....More eggs, or shall we just f--k on the linoleum one last time?...No, you're not gonna be made to feel anything, period ... because you have carved out this little part for yourself in the world, where you get to be a voyeur and a hermit and a lover whenever you feel like it ... and the rest of us are supposed to feel incredibly grateful for this brief moment that you've touched us ... Go to hell! It isn't human not to be lonely, and it isn't human not to be afraid! You're a hypocrite and you're a phony!...Oh! Don't you see? ... I just, oh Robert, don't you see? I just have to know the truth, huh? ... I just have to know the truth, because if I don't, I'll go crazy. So just tell me, either way. Because I can't act like this is enough because it has to be. And I can't pretend not to feel what I feel because it's over tomorrow."
"Robert leaned over as if to get something from the glove box. Eight days ago he'd done that, and his arm had brushed across my leg. A week ago, I'd been in Des Moines buying a new dress...'Oh no.' The words were inside of me, 'I was wrong, Robert. I was wrong to stay, but I can't go. Let me tell you again why I can't go.Tell me again why I should go. I heard his voice coming back to me: 'This kind of certainty comes but once in a lifetime.'"
"I realized love won't obey our expectations. Its mystery is pure and absolute. What Robert and I had could not continue if we were together. What Richard and I shared would vanish if we were apart. But how I wanted to share this. How would our lives have changed if I had? Could anyone else have seen the beauty of it?"
"And in that moment, everything I knew to be true about myself up until then was gone. I was acting like another woman, yet I was more myself than ever before."
"So, OK, like right now, for example, the Haitians need to come to America. But some people are all 'What about the strain on our resources?' But it's like when I had this garden party for my father's birthday, right? I said R.S.V.P. because it was a sit-down dinner. But people came that, like, did not R.S.V.P. So I was, like, totally buggin'. I had to haul ass to the kitchen, redistribute the food, squish in extra place settings. But by the end of the day it was, like, the more the merrier! And so if the government could just get to the kitchen, rearrange some things, we could certainly party with the Haitians. And in conclusion may I please remind you it does not say R.S.V.P. on the Statue of Liberty."
Forget Paris (1995)
How to Make an American Quilt (1995)
right. Let me ask you this. If you were to choose between marrying
a lover and marrying a friend, who would you choose?
"Why can't we love as many people as we want in our life time? Monogamy is really a very unnatural state that's been forced on us for centuries by screwed up religious leaders who are completely out of touch with their own sexuality. You know what I mean?"
never liked full moons. They give people an excuse to do foolish
"Young lovers seek perfection. Old lovers learn the art of sewing shreds together and of seeing beauty in a multiplicity of patches."
Now and Then (1995)
big are you boobs now?...Then, can we see them?"

Sense and Sensibility (1995)
do not attempt to deny that I think very highly of him - that I greatly
esteem him... I like him."
"I've come here with no expectations, only to profess now that I am at liberty to do so that my heart is, and always will be, yours."
Waiting to Exhale (1995)
"You know what, the more I think about it, the more I look at you, you look like the scum of the f--king earth."
leaving you for her."
"I don't know why I always pick the wrong men to fall in love with. My weakness is pretty boys with big sticks.''
While You Were Sleeping (1995)
"Well, the first time I saw him he didn't exactly give me the world. It was a dollar fifty train token, but I looked forward to it every single day. He started coming to my booth between 8:01 and 8:15 every morning, Monday through Friday. And he was just perfect.....my Prince Charming. Well, we've never actually spoken, but I know someday we will. I know it. I just know it, and I know that someday I will find a way to introduce myself and even that's gonna be perfect, just like my Prince."
what I really came here to tell you was that, uhm, I didn't mean
for this to happen. I-I don't know what to do. I mean, if you were
awake, I wouldn't be in this mess. Oh God, not that I'm blaming you.
I'm sorry. It's just that, you know, when I was a kid, I always imagined
what I would be like or where I would be or what I would have when
I got older. And you know, it was normal stuff. You know, I'd have
a house and a family and things like that. It's not that I'm complaining
or anything, 'cause, you know, I have a cat. I have an apartment.
Uhm, I have sole possession of a remote control. That's very important.
It's just that I've never met anybody that I could laugh with. Do
you believe in love at first sight? Ah, I'll bet you don't care about
that. You're too sensible for that. Or have you ever like, seen somebody
and you knew that if only that person really knew you, they
would, well, would, of course, dump the perfect model that they were
with and realize that you were the one that they wanted to
just grow old with? Have you ever fallen in love with somebody you
haven't even talked to? Have you ever been so alone you spend the
night confusing a man in a coma?"
