Top 10 Most Romantic Movies

Betty’s favorite romantic flicks of all time

Carrie Seim 

CasablancaIt’s 10 degrees below zero, never mind the wind chill. Your lips are chapped, your hands are raw, your scarf is caked in snot. Winter isn’t exactly the sexiest season of the year. And yet, we’ve somehow deemed it the most romantic. New Year’s Eve, Valentine’s Day, even Groundhog Day has a certain je ne se quoi.

But perhaps that notion is romantic in itself – that in the midst of deepest winter, love still blooms. Oh, Hallmark, you had us at hello.

In honor of wintery romance (of the cozy indoor variety), here’s a list of Betty’s all-time favorite romantic movies. Perfect snuggle material for you and your Valentine! We’re also including quotes from each film as a heartwarming refresher on true love – Hollywood style.

1. Casablanca (1942)

Rick: “If that plane leaves the ground and you’re not with him, you’ll regret it. Maybe not today. Maybe not tomorrow, but soon and for the rest of your life.”

Ilsa: “But what about us?”

Rick: “We’ll always have Paris.”

2. When Harry Met Sally (1989)

Harry: “I love that you get cold when it’s 71 degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle above your nose when you’re looking at me like I’m nuts. I love that after I spend the day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes. And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night. And it’s not because I’m lonely, and it’s not because it’s New Year’s Eve. I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.”

3. Titanic (1997)

Jack: “Winning that ticket, Rose, was the best thing that ever happened to me… it brought me to you. And I’m thankful for that, Rose. I’m thankful. You must do me this honor, Rose. Promise me you’ll survive. That you won’t give up, no matter what happens, no matter how hopeless. Promise me now, Rose, and never let go of that promise.”

Rose: “I promise.”

Jack: “Never let go.”

Rose: “I’ll never let go. I’ll never let go, Jack.”

4. Dirty Dancing (1987)

Baby: “Me? I’m scared of everything. I’m scared of what I saw, I’m scared of what I did, of who I am, and most of all I’m scared of walking out of this room and never feeling the rest of my whole life the way I feel when I’m with you.”

5. Sabrina (1954)

Linus: “How do you say in French, ‘my sister has a yellow pencil’?”

Sabrina: “Ma soeur a un crayon jaune.”

Linus: “How do you say, ‘my brother has a lovely girl’?”

Sabrina: “Mon frere a une gentille petite amie.”

Linus: “And how do you say, ‘I wish I were my brother’?”

6. The English Patient (1996)

Almásy: “When were you most happy?”

Katharine Clifton: “Now.”

Almásy: “When were you least happy?”

Katharine Clifton: “Now.”

7. Gone With the Wind (1939)

Scarlett: “Rhett, don’t. I shall faint.”

Rhett: “I want you to faint. This is what you were meant for. None of the fools you’ve ever know have kissed you like this, have they? Your Charles or your Frank or your stupid Ashley.”

8. The Notebook (2004)

Noah: “I am nothing special; just a common man with common thoughts, and I’ve led a common life… But in one respect I have succeeded as gloriously as anyone who’s ever lived: I’ve loved another with all my heart and soul; and to me, this has always been enough.”

9. Amelie (2001)

Amelie: “At least you’ll never be a vegetable – even artichokes have hearts.”

10. Bull Durham (1988)

Crash: “Well, I believe in the soul, the c***, the p****, the small of a woman’s back, the hanging curve ball, high fiber, good scotch, that the novels of Susan Sontag are self-indulgent, overrated crap. I believe Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing Astroturf and the designated hitter. I believe in the sweet spot, soft-core pornography, opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve and I believe in long, slow, deep, soft, wet kisses that last three days.”
