Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal in When Harry Met Sally... (1989)
Harry to Sally: I love that you get cold when it's 71 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 looking 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.
Ingrid Bergman and Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca (1942)
Ilsa to Rick: Richard, I tried to stay away. I thought I would never see you again, that you were out of my life. The day you left Paris... if you knew what I went through. If you knew how much I loved you. How much I still love you.
Keira Knightley and Matthew Macfadyen in Pride & Prejudice (2005)
Mr. Darcy to Elizabeth: You must know... surely, you must know it was all for you. You are too generous to trifle with me. I believe you spoke with my aunt last night, and it has taught me to hope as I'd scarcely allowed myself before. If your feelings are still what they were last April, tell me so at once. My affections and wishes have not changed, but one word from you will silence me forever. If, however, your feelings have changed, I will have to tell you: you have bewitched me, body and soul, and I love--I love--I love you. I never wish to be parted from you from this day on.
Tom Cruise and Renée Zellweger in Jerry Maguire (1996)
Jerry to Dorothy: But tonight, our little project, our company, had a very big night. A very, very big night. But it wasn't complete, wasn't nearly close to being in the same vicinity as complete, because I couldn't share it with you. I couldn't hear your voice or laugh about it with you. I miss my -- I miss my wife. We live in a cynical world. A cynical world. And we work in a business of tough competitors. I love you. You... complete me.
Henry Fonda and Katharine Hepburn in On Golden Pond (1981)
Ethel to Norman: You're safe, you old poop and you're definitely still you picking on poor old Charlie. After lunch, after we've gobbled up all those silly strawberries we'll take ourselves to the old town road. We've been there a thousand times. A thousand. And you'll remember it all. Listen to me, mister. You're my knight in shining armor. Don't you forget it. You're gonna get back up on that horse and I'm gonna be right behind you holding on tight and away we're gonna go, go, go.
David Hyde Pierce and Jane Leeves in Frasier (1993)
Niles to Daphne: No, Daphne, I'm glad he told me - because I love you. It's the truth. Lord knows, I have tried to deny it, tried to pretend that I am over you, but not a day has gone by when I haven't thought of you. Your smile, your beautiful eyes, what it would be like to hold your hands and ask you the question I never dared ask! episode 7.24: Something Borrowed, Someone Blue: Part 2 (2000)
Jacob Anderson and Nathalie Emmanuel in Game of Thrones (2011)
Grey Worm to Missandei: When Unsullied are young, the masters learn their fears. One boy is scared of dogs. One boy is scared of high places. One is frightened of the ocean. They make the boy sleep with dogs, or climb a cliff, or throw him in the water. If he learns to swim, good. If he drowns, good. Either way, strong Unsullied. But I had no fears. I was never the biggest, never the strongest, but I was bravest. Always. Until...I meet Missandei, from the Isle of Naath. Now...I have fear. episode 7.2: Stormborn (2017)
Emma Caulfield Ford in Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997)
Xander to Anya: I've gotta say something, 'cause I don't think I've made it clear. I'm in love with you. Powerfully, painfully in love. The things you do. The way you think. The way you move... I get excited every time I'm about to see you. You make me feel like I've never felt before in my life... Like a man. I just thought you might wanna know. episode 5.10: Into the Woods (2000)
Sarah Michelle Gellar and James Marsters in Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997)
Spike to Buffy: You listen to me. I've been alive a bit longer than you. And dead a lot longer than that. I've seen things you couldn't imagine. And done things I'd prefer you didn't... Don't exactly have a reputation for being a thinker. I follow my blood, which doesn't exactly rush in the direction of my brain. So I make a lot of mistakes. A lot of wrong bloody calls. A hundred plus years. And there's only one thing I've ever been sure of: you. Hey, look at me. I'm not asking you for anything. When I say I love you, it's not because I want you. Or because I can't have you. It has nothing to do with me. I love what you *are*. What you do. How you try... I've seen your kindness, and your strength. I've seen the best and the worst of you. And I understand, with perfect clarity, exactly what you are... You're a *hell* of a woman. You're the One, Buffy. episode 7.20: Touched (2003)
Ansel Elgort in The Fault in Our Stars (2014)
Gus to Hazel: I am in love with you. And I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we're all doomed. And that one day all our labor will be returned to dust. And I know that the sun will swallow the only earth we will ever have. And I am in love with you.
Julia Stiles in 10 Things I Hate About You (1999)
Kat to Patrick: I hate the way you talk to me, and the way you cut your hair. I hate the way you drive my car. I hate it when you stare. I hate your big dumb combat boots, and the way you read my mind. I hate you so much it makes me sick; it even makes me rhyme. I hate it, I hate the way you're always right. I hate it when you lie. I hate it when you make me laugh, even worse when you make me cry. I hate it when you're not around, and the fact that you didn't call. But mostly I hate the way I don't hate you. Not even close, not even a little bit, not even at all.
Helena Bonham Carter and Julian Sands in A Room with a View (1985)
George to Lucy: He's the sort who can't know anyone intimately, least of all a woman. He doesn't know what a woman is. He wants you for a possession, something to look at, like a painting or an ivory box. Something to own and to display. He doesn't want you to be real, and to think and to live. He doesn't love you. But I love you. I want you to have your own thoughts and ideas and feelings, even when I hold you in my arms.
Colin Firth in Bridget Jones's Diary (2001)
Mark to Bridget: I don't think you're an idiot at all. I mean, there are elements of the ridiculous about you. Your mother's pretty interesting. And you really are an appallingly bad public speaker. And, um, you tend to let whatever's in your head come out of your mouth without much consideration of the consequences... But the thing is, um, what I'm trying to say, very inarticulately, is that, um, in fact, perhaps despite appearances, I like you, very much. Just as you are.
Nicolas Cage and Cher in Moonstruck (1987)
Ronny to Loretta: Loretta, I love you. 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 aren't here to make things perfect. The snowflakes are perfect. The stars are perfect. Not us. Not us! We are here to ruin ourselves and to break our hearts and love the wrong people and die. The storybooks are bull***t. Now I want you to come upstairs with me and get in my bed!
Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer in Friends (1994)
Ross to Rachel: Please, please stay with me. I am so in love with you. Please don't go. I know, I know. I shouldn't have waited till now to say it, but, um - that was stupid, okay? I'm sorry. But I'm telling you now. I love you. Do not get on this plane. episode 10.17: The Last One (2004)
J.R. Ramirez in Manifest (2018)
Jared to Michaela: You asked me why I didn't go to the hangar. I didn't go because I knew if I saw you, I would have never gone home. Mick, you're not a wrecking ball - you're my soulmate. I still wake up expecting to find you next to me. I can still look at you and the rest of the world just goes away. I love you. It's always been you. I didn't cheat death to live a half a life, neither did you. episode 1.10: Crosswinds (2019)
Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev in The Vampire Diaries (2009)
Elena to Damon: Fine, then I'm not sorry either. I'm not sorry that I met you. I'm not sorry that knowing you has made me question everything, that in death you're the one that made me feel most alive. You've been a terrible person, you've made all the wrong choices, and of all the choices that I've made this will prove to be the worst one. But I am not sorry that I'm in love with you. I love you, Damon. I love you. episode 4.23: Graduation (2013)
Tony Goldwyn and Kerry Washington in Scandal (2012)
Fitz to Olivia: You own me! You control me. I belong to you. You think I don't want to be a better man? You think that I don't want to dedicate myself to my marriage? You don't think I want to be honorable? To be the man you voted for? I love you. I'm in love with you. You're the love of my life. My every feeling is controlled by the look on your face. I can't breathe without you. I can't sleep without you. I wait for you, I watch for you. I exist for you. If I could escape all of this and run away with you? There's no Sally or Thomas here. You're nobody's victim, Liv. I belong to you. We're in this together. episode 2.8: Happy Birthday, Mr. President (2012)
Julia Roberts and Dermot Mulroney in My Best Friend's Wedding (1997)
Julianne to Michael: Michael, I love you. I've loved you for nine years. I've just been too arrogant and scared to realize it, and, well, now, I'm just scared, so - I realize this comes at a very inopportune time, but I really have this gigantic favor to ask of you. Choose me. Marry me. Let me make you happy. Oh, that sounds like three favors, doesn't it?
Bill Murray and Andie MacDowell in Groundhog Day (1993)
Phil to Rita: I think you're the kindest, sweetest, prettiest person I've ever met in my life. I've never seen anyone that's nicer to people than you are. The first time I saw you... something happened to me. I never told you but... I knew that I wanted to hold you as hard as I could. I don't deserve someone like you. But if I ever could, I swear I would love you for the rest of my life.
Jude Law in The Holiday (2006)
Graham to Amanda: I have another scenario for you - I'm in love with you. I apologize for the blunt delivery, but as problematic as this fact may be, I'm in love... with YOU. I'm not feeling this because you're leaving, and not because it feels good to feel this way... which, by the way, it does, or did before you went off like that. I can't figure out the mathematics of this, I just know I love you. I can't believe how many times I'm saying it! And I never thought I'd feel this way again, so that's pretty phenomenal. And I realize that I come as a package deal: 3 for the price of 1. I know my package, perhaps in the light of day, isn't all that wonderful, but I finally know what I want and that, in itself, is a miracle. And what I want is YOU.
Holly Hunter and Albert Brooks in Broadcast News (1987)
Aaron to Jane: And if things had gone differently for me tonight, then I probably wouldn't be saying any of this. I grant you everything. But give me this: He personifies everything that you've been fighting against. And I'm in love with you. How do you like that? I buried the lede.
Hugh Grant and Emma Thompson in Sense and Sensibility (1995)
Edward to Elinor: Elinor, I met Lucy when I was very young. Had I had an active profession, I should never have felt such an idle and foolish inclination. My behavior at Norland was very wrong but I convinced myself that you felt only friendship for me and that it was my heart alone that I was risking. 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.
Ben Affleck in Chasing Amy (1997)
Holden to Alyssa: I love you. And not, not in a friendly way, although I think we're great friends. And not in a misplaced affection, puppy-dog way, although I'm sure that's what you'll call it. I love you. Very, very simple, very truly. You are the epitome of everything I have ever looked for in another human being. And I know that you think of me as just a friend, and crossing that line is the furthest thing from an option you would ever consider. But I had to say it. I just, I can't take this anymore. I can't stand next to you without wanting to hold you. I can't-I can't look into your eyes without feeling that-that longing you only read about in trashy romance novels. I can't talk to you without wanting to express my love for everything you are. (read the full speech here)
James Lafferty and Bethany Joy Lenz in One Tree Hill (2003)
Nathan to Haley: I just don't want to do anything to pressure you, or drive you away. Even though sometimes I can't help it. Just like I can't help that I fell in love with you. Cause I did. I love you, Haley. And it scares me a little bit, but, there it is. episode 1.19: How Can You Be Sure? (2004)
Ellen Pompeo in Grey's Anatomy (2005)
Meredith to Derek: Okay, here it is. Your choice, it's simple, her or me. And I'm sure she's really great. But Derek, I love you. In a really, really big - pretend to like your taste in music, let you eat the last piece of cheesecake, hold a radio over my head outside your window - unfortunate way that makes me hate you, love you. So pick me. Choose me. Love me. episode 2.5: Bring the Pain (2005)
Eric Dane in Grey's Anatomy (2005)
Lexie to Mark: I love you. Oh, my God. That just came... flying out of my face, like it was some kind of--I I love you. I just-- God! Did it again! I...I love you. I do. I just-- I love you. And I have been trying not to say it. I have been trying so hard to just mash it down and ignore it and not say it. And Jackson is a great guy. He is, and he... he's gorgeous, and he's younger than you, and he doesn't have any grandkids or babies with his lesbian BFFs and he's an Avery, and he liked me, you know? He... he really liked me. But it was never gonna work out because I-I love *you*. I am so in love with you. And you're... you're in me. It's- It's like you're a disease. It's like I am infected by Mark Sloan. And I just can't... I can't think about anything or anybody, and I can't sleep. I can't breathe. I can't eat. And I love you. I just... I love you all the time, every minute of every day. And I-I.. I love you. God, that feels good, just to say that... I'm - I feel so much better. Just... I love you. episode 8.22: Let the Bad Times Roll (2012)
