Welcome to Romance Week

This week on Royals it's all about the Romance. We have a total of 7 reviews for you this week - 3 from J. Kaye, 1 from Guest Blogger Mandi, 1 from Guest Blogger Bobbi and 2 from myself.

To help get us all in the mood and start those warm and fuzzy feelings, We've listed our 10 All-Time Favourite Romantic Movie Quotes. You can vote all this week for your favourite using the poll on the left.

From Pride and Prejudice (2005)
Mr. Darcy: 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.

From North and South (2004)
John Thornton: I spoke to you about my feelings because I love you; I had no thought for your reputation!

From Gone with the Wind (1939)
Rhett Butler: No, I don't think I will kiss you, although you need kissing, badly. That's what's wrong with you. You should be kissed and often, and by someone who knows how.

From The Wedding Date (2005)
Nick Mercer: I think I'd miss you even if we'd never met.

From The Notebook (2004)
Noah: So it's not gonna be easy. It's going to be really hard; we're gonna have to work at this everyday, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, forever, everyday. You and me... everyday.

City of Angels (1998)
Seth: I would rather have had one breath of her hair, one kiss of her mouth, one touch of her hand, than eternity without it. One.

Ghost (1990)
Sam: It's amazing, Molly. The love inside, you take it with you.

When Harry Met Sally (1989)
Harry Burns: 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.

The Bridges of Madison County (1995)
Robert: When I think of why I make pictures, the reason that I can come up with just seems that I've been making my way here. It seems right now that all I've ever done in my life is making my way here to you.

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001)
Arwen: I would rather share one lifetime with you than face all the ages of this world alone. I choose a mortal life.

Awwwww i LOVE Period Dramas

I think there's only one movie i don't know in this compilation, that's the first one. I own the other ones in DVDs :P

I voted for Pride and Prejudice, because even if the 1995 is the most this version, this one is still beautiful.

I love the kiss from North and South:)

Marg said...

The kiss from the end of North and South is one of the most romantic scenes every!

I LOVE North and South, but I have a couple of other lines that get me every time. First, is the line from the end of Mansfield Park where Edmund tells Fanny Price that he loves her the way a hero loves a heroine...etc. Then, one more! I love the end of Jane Eyre where Mr. Rochester tells Jane, "I want you to pass through life as my second self, my best earthly companion...I love you like my own flesh." (Swoon) These films all have their tension, etc., but man...don't we love them? I have to say though that the film version of North and South is a pretty big winner all around!
