It Happened One Night (1934)

Together for the first time!

"I come from a long line of stubborn idiots."

"Oh, you're such a smart alec. Nobody knows anything but you. I'll stop a car and I won't use my thumb."

Gone With the Wind (1939)

The most magnificent picture ever!

"I can't let him go. I can't! There must be some way to bring him back. Oh, I can't think about this now! I'll go crazy if I do! I'll think about it tomorrow. But I must think about it. I must think about it. What is there to do? What is there that matters?... Tara! ... Home. I'll go home, and I'll think of some way to get him back! After all, tomorrow is another day!"

The Women (1939)

It's all about men!

"I've had two years to grow claws, mother. Jungle red."

The Philadelphia Story (1940)

Broadway's howling year-run comedy hit of the snooty society beauty who slipped and fell - IN LOVE!

"Put me in your pocket, Mike."

The Shop Around the Corner (1940)

"Oh, my Dear Friend, my heart was trembling as I walked into the post office, and there you were, lying in Box 237. I took you out of your envelope and read you, read you right there."

"Psychologically, I'm very confused... But personally, I don't feel bad at all."

"Well, I really wouldn't care to scratch your surface, Mr. Kralik, because I know exactly what I'd find. Instead of a heart, a hand-bag. Instead of a soul, a suitcase. And instead of an intellect, a cigarette lighter... which doesn't work."

Casablanca (1942)

They had a date with fate in Casablanca!

"Ilsa, I'm no good at being noble, but it doesn't take much to see that the problems of three little people don't amount to a hill of beans in this crazy world. Someday you'll understand that. Now, now... Here's looking at you, kid."

Brief Encounter (1946, UK)

A story of the most precious moments in a woman's life!

"I'm a happily married woman - or I was, rather, until a few weeks ago. This is my whole world, and it's enough, or rather, it was until a few weeks ago. But, oh, Fred, I've been so foolish. I've fallen in love. I'm an ordinary woman. I didn't think such violent things could happen to ordinary people."

"This can't last. This misery can't last. I must remember that and try to control myself. Nothing lasts really. Neither happiness nor despair. Not even life lasts very long. They'll come a time in the future when I shan't mind about this anymore. But I can look back and say quite peacefully and cheerfully how silly I was. No, no I don't want that time to come hither. I want to remember every minute, always, always to the end of my days."

Sabrina (1954)

All's fair in love . . . with Sabrina Fair and her men!

Pillow Talk (1959)

It's what goes on when the lights go off!

"Mr. Allen, this may come as a surprise to you, but there are some men who don't end every sentence with a proposition."

Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961)

Holly Golightly, the craziest heroine who ever crept between the pages of a best-selling novel!

"You can always tell what kind of a person a man really thinks you are by the earrings he gives you."

"OK, life's a fact. People do fall in love, people do belong to each other - because that's the only chance anybody's got for real happiness."

Barefoot in the Park (1967)

Break the rules! Make love! Fall over laughing!

-- "Paul, if the honeymoon doesn't work out, let's not get divorced. Let's kill each other."
-- "Let's let one of the maids do it. I hear the service here is wonderful."

-- "Did you miss me today?"
-- "No."
-- "Why not?"
-- "Because you called me eight times. I don't talk to you that much when I'm home."

"I'm trying to get you all hot and bothered, and you're summing up for the jury."

Camelot (1967)

The Most Beautiful Love Story Ever!

"Don't let it be forgot / That once there was a spot / For one brief shining moment / That was known as Camelot!"

"Merlin told me once: 'Never be too disturbed if you don't understand what a woman is thinking. They don't do it very often'."
