The Notebook
Movie Quote Quiz

Noah: My Dearest Allie. I couldn't sleep last night because I know that it's over between us. I'm not bitter any more, because I know that what we had was real. And if in some distant place in the future we see each other in our new lives, I'll smile at you with joy and remember how we spent the summer beneath the trees, learning from each other and growing in love. The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds, and that's what you've given me. That's what I hope to give to you forever. I love you. I'll be seeing you. Noah.

Allie: ...You're dumb.
Noah: I could be that.

Allie: Stay with you? What for? Look at us, we're already fightin'.
Noah: Well that's what we do, we fight... You tell me when I am being an arrogant son of a bitch and I tell you when you are a pain in the ass. Which you are, 99% of the time. I'm not afraid to hurt your feelings. Because I know you'll have like a 2 second rebound rate, then you're back doing the next pain-in-the-ass thing.

Noah: Yes... It wasn't over, it still isn't over.

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, you and me, every day.
