Something to make me smile ...

This is one of my favorite movie dialogue bits. I love it to pieces and find it very romantical:

Ivy Walker: When we are married, will you dance with me? I find dancing very agreeable. Why can you not say what is in your head?

Lucius Hunt: Why can you not stop saying what is in yours? Why must you lead, when I want to lead? If I want to dance I will ask you to dance. If I want to speak I will open my mouth and speak. Everyone is forever plaguing me to speak further. Why? What good is it to tell you you are in my every thought from the time I wake? What good can come from my saying that I sometimes cannot think clearly or do my work properly? What gain can rise of my telling you the only time I feel fear as others do is when I think of you in harm? That is why I am on this porch, Ivy Walker. I fear for your safety before all others. And yes, I will dance with you on our wedding night.

Yes, I love The Village for having great writing. And one of my favorite declarations of movie-love.
My sad, spiky heart softens and I am nearly moved to tears.
I am a hopeless romantic.
(Not so hopeless since I found my Michael ... but before that? HOPELESS.)

So, any favorite movie declarations of love? I'm all ears.

How about this one?

Ted: I am Ted from San Dimas, and I bring to you a message of love.
Princess Elizabeth: From who?
Ted: From... from myself.
Princess Elizabeth: And what is this message you speak of?
Bill: Lyrics dude, recite them some lyrics.
Ted: Oh, you beautiful babes from England, for whom we have traveled through time... will you go with us to the prom in San Dimas? We will have a most triumphant time!
Bill: Way-to-go dude!

You can't say I'm not a romantic! Or that Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure isn't a classic!

Indeed, Melissa, that quote is most excellent. *air guitar*
