You can’t blame women for expecting us to pull off some romantic shit every now and then because when they do romantic things, man, it is romantic.
Below is a sample on how women can make us all feel like we’re more than the shitheads we often act to be.
If only they don’t expect the same thing…
10. The Story Of Us
The character: Katie Jordan
The Lines:Katie: I want to go to Chow Funs
Ben: I thought we agreed we couldn’t really talk at Chow Funs
Katie: I know
Ben: Are you saying Chow Funs because you can’t face telling the kids? Because if that’s why you’re saying Chow Funs, don’t say Chow Funs
Katie: That’s not why I’m saying Chow Funs. Funs, I’m saying Chow Funs because we’re an us. There’s a history here, and histories don’t happen overnight. In Mesopotamia or Ancient Troy there are cities built on top of other cities, but I don’t want another city, I like this city. I know what kind of mood your in when you wake up by which eyebrow is higher, and you know I’m a little quiet in the morning and compensate accordingly, that’s a dance you perfect over time. And it’s hard, it’s much harder than I thought it would be, but there’s more good than bad and you don’t just give up! And it’s not for the sake of the children, but God they’re great kids aren’t they? And we made them, I mean think about that! It’s like there were no people there, and then there were people and they grew, and an an an I won’t be able to say to some stranger Josh has your hands or remember how Erin threw up at the Lincoln Memorial And I’ll try to relax, let’s face it, anybody is going to have traits that get on your nerves, I mean, why shouldn’t it be your annoying traits, and I know I’m no day at the beach, but I do have a good sense of direction so I can at least find the beach, which isn’t a weakness of yours, it’s a strength of mine. And God your a good friend and good friends are hard to find. Charlotte said that in Charlottes Web and I love how you read that to Erin and you take on the voice of Wilber the Pig with such dedication even when your bone tired. That speaks volumes about character! And ultimately, isn’t that what it comes down too? What a person is made of? That girl in the pin helmet is still here ‘bee boo bee boo’ I didn’t even know she existed until you and I’m afraid if you leave I may never see her again, even though I said at times you beat her out of me, isn’t that the paradox? Haven’t we hit the essential paradox? Give and take, push and pull, the yen the yang. The best of times, the worst of times!I think Dickens said it best, ‘He could eat no fat, his wife could eat no lean’, but, doesn’t really apply here does it? What I’m trying to say is, I’m saying Chow Funs because, I love you
Ben: Did you hear that kids? Mom wants to go to chow Funs!
9. Sweet Home Alabama
The character: Melanie Smooter
The set up: After going all the way to Alabama so she can divorce her childhood sweetheart, Jake Perry, he finally agrees. However, right about the moment she is to say “I do” with her current boyfriend, her lawyer told her she didn’t sign the divorce papers. She realizes she can’t sign because she doesn’t want to divorce him.
The proposal: Jake: Why do you want to be married to me anyway?
Melanie: So I can kiss you anytime I want.
8. My Bestfriend s Wedding
The character: Julianne Potter
The set up: Julianne and Michael have been best of friends for nine years. He calls her up to tell her he is getting married and she realizes she has been in love with him all these years.
Julianne Potter: Michael… I love you. I’ve loved you for nine years, I’ve just been too arrogant and scared to realize it, and… well, now I’m just scared. So, I realize this comes at a very inopportune time but I really have this gigantic favor to ask of you. Choose me. Marry me. Let me make you happy. Oh, that sounds like three favors, doesn’t it?
7. Spiderman 2.
The character: Mary Jane Watson
Mary Jane Watson: [standing at Peter Parker's door] Had to do what I had to do.
Peter Parker: Mary Jane.
Mary Jane Watson: Peter. I can’t survive without you.
Peter Parker: You shouldn’t be here.
Mary Jane Watson: I know you think we can’t be together, but can’t you respect me enough to let me make my own decision? I know there’ll be risks but I want to face them with you. It’s wrong that we should be only half alive… half of ourselves. I love you. So here I am – standing in your doorway. I have always been standing in your doorway. Isn’t it about time somebody saved your life?
Mary Jane Watson: Well, say something.
Peter Parker: Thank you, Mary Jane Watson.
Mary Jane Watson: [They kiss, which is interrupted by police sirens. Peter stands, conflicted on whether he should respond. Mary Jane, with an accepting smile, responds:] Go get ‘em, tiger.
6. Runaway Bride
The character: TMaggie Carpenter
The Line: Maggie Carpenter: I love you, Homer Eisenhower Graham. Will you marry me?
Ike Graham: I… I’ve got to think about this a little bit.
Maggie Carpenter: Good. I was hoping you’d say that.
Ike Graham: [laughing] You were not!
Maggie Carpenter: I was, because if you said “yes” right away, then I wouldn’t get to say this next part, and I’ve been practicing. [Maggie sits down, clears her throat] Ready?
Ike Graham: I’m listening.
Maggie Carpenter: I guarantee there’ll be tough times. I guarantee that at some point, one or both of us is going to want get out. But I also guarantee…
[starts to cry]… that if I don’t ask you to be mine, I’ll regret it for the rest of my life. Because I know in my heart… you’re the only one for me.
