"Shut up. Just shut up... You had me at hello. You had me at hello." Note: ranked #52 in the American Film Institute's list of the top 100 movie quotations in American cinema.


Avery Bishop (very loudly): YOU ARE JERRY MA-****ING-GUIRE!!!

Avery Bishop: Jerry, there is a "sensitivity" thing that some people have. I don't have it. I don't cry at movies. I don't gush over babies. I don't start celebrating Christmas five months early, and I don't tell a man who just screwed up both of our lives -- 'oh, poor baby.' That's me. For better or worse. But I do love you.

Bob Sugar: It's not show "friends". It's show business.

Chad: This... is Miles Davis and John Coltrane. Stockholm. 1963... two masters of freedom, playing in a time before their art was corrupted by a zillion ****tail lounge performers who destroyed the legacy of the only American artform -- JAZZ.

Copy store clerk: That's how you become great, man. Hang your balls out there!

Jan: I love men. I respect men. But that doesn't change the fact that most of them belong in cages.

Marcee Tidwell: My whole life is this family, Jerry. It doesn't work without him.

Marcee Tidwell: Now I don't know what you do for your five-percent, but this man, my husband has a whole plan, an image... we majored in marketing, Jerry, and when you put him in a Waterbed Warehouse commercial, excuse me, you are making him common. He is pure gold and you're giving him "Waterbed Warehouse" when he deserves the big four -- shoe, car, clothing-line, soft-drink. The four jewels of the celebrity endorsement dollar.

Alice: What's the current definition of stalking?
Woman #1: Coming over uninvited.
Jan: So Romeo under the trellis... was a stalker.

Avery: Don't...ever...stop...****ing...me!
Jerry: Sooner... or later... I'll have to stop.
Avery: Oh Gawd, oh yes, it's never been better. Never BETTER!! Never BETTER!!
[The two finish having sex]
Avery: Open your eyes. If you ever want me to be with another woman for you, I would do it. I'm not interested in it. There was a time, yes, it felt normal for me, but it was a phase, a college thing, like torn Levi's or law school for you... people change, but if you ever feel like being adventurous in that way, I would do it for you... You want anything from the kitchen I'm going to get some fruit --
Jerry: You know I don't think we need to do the thing where we tell each other everything!
Avery: Jerry, this is what intimacy is!

Avery: They're all heatseekers! All of them, everybody. You keep one superstar and they'll all follow. There's no real loyalty, and the first person who told me that, Jerry Maguire, was you.
Jerry: I think I was trying to sleep with you at the time.
Avery: Well, it worked, and I will not let you fail. You are Jerry Ma- ****in-guire.
Jerry: That's right.
Avery: King of the Housecalls! Master of the Living Room!
Jerry: Okay, this is working.
Avery: You are not a loser.
Jerry: Who said anything about "loser?" Where do you get this word "loser?"
Avery: I'm sorry. I was on a roll. I meant something else.

Dorothy: I loved your memo, by the way.
Jerry: Thanks... actually, it was just a "Mission Statement."
Dorothy: I think in this age, optimism like that... it's a revolutionary act.
Jerry: You think so?
Dorothy: Oh yes.
Jerry: I appreciate that, because some of that stuff... you know, it was two in the morning and...
Dorothy: -- the part about "we should embrace what it is still virginal about our enthusiasm" -- "and we should all force open the tightly-clenched fist of commerce, and give a little back for the greater good.". I mean, I was inspired, and I'm an accountant.

Dorothy: I took advantage of you and worst of all, I'm not alone. I did this with a kid. I was just on some ride where I thought I was in 1ove enough for both of us. I did this. And at least I can do something about it now.
Jerry: Well -- I'm not the guy who's going to run. I stick.
Dorothy: I don't need you to "stick."
Jerry: What do you want from me? My soul?
Dorothy: Why not? I deserve that much.
Jerry: What if I'm just not built that way?
Dorothy: I think we made a mistake here.
Jerry: What if it's true? "Great at friendship bad at intimacy." I mean, come on. It's the theme of my bachelor party film --
Dorothy: I know. I watched it. I sort of know it by heart.
Jerry: I don't like to give up.
Dorothy: Oh please. My need to make the best of things, and your need to be what, "responsible"... if one of us doesn't say something now we might lose ten years being polite about it. Why don't we call this next road trip what it is. A nice long break.
Jerry: What about Ray?
Dorothy: There's no question you'll be friends. Of course you'll be friends.
Jerry: So this break... is a break-up.
Dorothy: Come on, Jerry. You know this isn't easy for me. I mean, on the surface, you'd almost think everything was fine. See, I've got this great guy who loves my kid -- and he sure does like me a lot. I can't live that way. It's not the way I'm built.

Dorothy: Look, just in case this weekend becomes next month and next month becomes... whatever... Don't make a joke of your life. Go back and read what you wrote. You're better than the rest of them, better than the Bob Sugars, and don't forget it.
Jerry: Wait a second. I know a way to s... to save on Medical and rent and... look... what if we stayed together? What if we uh... got married. If I said that, would you stay?
Dorothy: No no. Don't do that. Don't say that unless you want to say it.
Jerry: Will you marry me?
