Allie: Did you write that?

Allie: I think I knew him.
Duke: I think you did too.


Allie: Do you think our love can create miracles?
Duke: I do.

Allie: Do you think our love can take us away together?
Duke: I think our love can do anything we want it to.

Allie: They fell in love, didn't they?
Duke: Yes, they did.

Anne: She is out foolin' around with that boy until two o'clock in the morning and it has got to stop! I didn't spend seventeen years of my life raising a daughter and giving her EVERYTHING so she could throw it away on a summer romance!
Young Allie: [screaming] DADDY!
Anne: She will wind up with her heart broken or pregnant! Now he's a nice boy, but he's...
Young Allie: He's WHAT? He is what? Tell me!
Anne: He is trash! Trash! Trash! Not for you!

Duke: How's it hangin', Harry?
Harry: I keep trying to die, but they won't let me.
Duke: Well, you can't have everything.

Lon: Okay, the way I see it, I got three choices. One, I can shoot him. Two, I can kick the crap out of him. Or three...I leave you. Well, all that's no good. You see, 'cause none of those options get me you. And in spite of everything, I love you.
Allie: I love you too. It's just that when I'm with Noah I feel like one person and when I'm with you I feel like someone totally different.
Lon: Look, it's normal not to forget your first love. I love you, Allie, but I want you for myself. I don't want to have to convince my fianc? that she should be with me.
Allie: You don't have to. I already know I should be with you.

Young Allie: Now, say you're a bird, too.
Young Noah: If you're a bird, I'm a bird.

Young Allie: This place is gigantic.
Young Noah: Yeah, a gigantic piece of crap.

Young Allie: Why didn't you write me? Why? It wasn't over for me. I waited for you for seven years. But now it's too late.
Young Noah: I wrote you 365 letters. I wrote you every day for a year.
Young Allie: You wrote me?
Young Noah: Yes. It wasn't over. It still isn't over.
[kisses Allie]

Young Allie: [lying in the middle of the street] What happens if a car comes?
Young Noah: We die.

Young Noah: I see you got my letters, finally. What are you gonna do, Al?
Young Allie: I don't know.
Young Noah: We're back to that? Are we back there? What about the past couple of days? They happened, you know.
Young Allie: I know that they happened, and they were wonderful. But they were also very irresponsible. I have a fianc? waiting for me at a hotel who's going to be crushed when he finds out what I did.
Young Noah: So you make love to me, and go back to your husband. Was that your plan? Was that a test I didn't pass?
Young Allie: No, I made a promise to a man. He gave me a ring and I gave him my word.
Young Noah: And your word is shot to hell now, don't you think?
Young Allie: I don't know. I'll find out when I talk to him.
Young Noah: This is not about keeping your promise, and it's not about following your heart. It's about security.
Young Allie: What is that supposed to mean?
Young Noah: Money!
Young Allie: What are you talking about?
Young Noah: He has a lot of money.
Young Allie: Now I hate you, you smug bastard.
Young Noah: Well, I hate you. If you leave here, I hate you.
Young Allie: Have you been paying attention to anything that's happening?
Young Noah: I guess not, I think I must have misread all of those signals.
Young Allie: Well I guess you did!
Young Noah: You're bored! You're bored and you know it! You wouldn't be here if there wasn't something missing.
Young Allie: You arrogant son of a bitch.
Young Noah: Would you just stay with me?
Young Allie: Stay with you? What for? Look at us, we're already fighting.
Young Noah: Well, that's what we do! We fight! You tell me when I'm being an arrogant son of a bitch and I tell you when you're being a pain in the ass, which you are 99% of the time. I'm not afraid to hurt your feelings. They have, like, a two second rebound rate, then you're back doing the next pain-in-the-ass thing.
Young Allie: So what?
Young Noah: So it's not gonna be easy. It's gonna be really hard. And we're gonna have to work at this every day. But I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, forever, you and me, every day. Can you do something for me? Please? Will you just picture your life for me? Thirty years from now? Forty years from now? What's it look like? If it's with that guy, go. Go! I lost you once. I think I can do it again if I thought that's what you really wanted. But don't you take the easy way out.
Young Allie: What easy way? There is no easy way. No matter what I do, somebody gets hurt!
Young Noah: Would you stop thinking about what everyone wants?! Stop thinking about what I want, what he wants, what your parents want. What do you want? What do you want?
Young Allie: It's not that simple!
Young Noah: What do you want? Goddammit, what do you want?
Young Allie: I have to go.

Young Noah: I'm Noah Calhoun.
Young Allie: So?
Young Noah: So it's really nice to meet you.
Edmond: Allie, who is this guy?
Young Allie: I don't know, Noah Calhoun.

Young Noah: I'm not usually like this, I'm sorry.
Young Allie: Oh yes you are.
Young Noah: I could be fun, if you want. I could be pensive, smart, supersticious, brave. And I, uhh, I can be light on my feet. I could be whatever you want. You just tell me what you want, and I'm gonna be that for you.
Young Allie: You're dumb.
Young Noah: I could be that.
[Allie rolls her eyes and walks away]
Young Noah: Come on, one date. What's it gonna hurt?
Young Allie: I don't think so.
Young Noah: Well, what can I do to change your mind?

Young Noah: We can just finish out the summer and see what happens then.
Young Allie: Please don't do this. You don't mean it. Well, if you're going to do it, why wait until the summer ends? Why don't you do it right now?
[pushes Noah against the car]
Young Allie: Huh? C'mon. Do it! Do it!
[repeatedly pushes Noah, starts hitting Noah]
Young Allie: You know what? I'm gonna do it! It's over. Okay? It's over.
Young Noah: [opens his arms for a hug] Come here.
Young Allie: Don't touch me! I hate you! I hate you!
Young Noah: OK, I'm going.
Young Allie: Why don't you just go then?
[pushes Noah in the car]
Young Allie: Get out! Leave!
[kicks Noah's car]
Young Allie: Go! No, no, just wait a minute. We're not really breaking up, are we? Come on. This is just a fight we're having and tomorrow it will be like it never happened, right?
[Noah drives away]
