I need some help.
I am looking for a list of movie quotes from geeky/nerdy movies that deal with love.
I have all the Princess Bride ones!
So say we all!
Slogging through traditional love quotes can be taxing, especially when you just want something that tingles that geek-loving robot heart of yours.
We root for the geeky underdog to get the girl and hope the battle over evil ends in a big snog.
And we need something relatable for our ceremony readings, invitation wording, and pop culture-filled vows, right?
You demand nerdy romance, funny vow ideas, and swashbuckling toast fodder from movies, TV, and a few books? As you wish…
I will never leave you. That's a promise. – Ripley
The world is indeed full of peril and in it there are many dark places. But still there is much that is fair. And though in all lands, love is now mingled with grief, it still grows, perhaps, the greater. – Haldir
I would rather share one lifetime with you than face all the ages of this world alone. – Arwen
When I say, ‘I love you,' it's not because I want you or because I can't have you. It has nothing to do with me. I love what you are, what you do, how you try. I've seen your kindness and your strength. I've seen the best and the worst of you. And I understand with perfect clarity exactly what you are. You're a hell of a woman. You're the one. –Spike to Buffy (Spuffy for life!)
Let me tell you something: when it's dark and I'm all alone and I'm scared or freaked out or whatever, I always think, ‘What would Buffy do?' You're my hero. Okay, sometimes when it's dark and I'm all alone I think, ‘What is Buffy wearing?' – Xander to Buffy
You have the ring. And I see that your Schwartz is as big as mine. Now, let's see how well you handle it. – Dark Helmet
Why do you love me? Why do you need me? Always and forever. We met in a chat room — now our love can fully bloom. Sure, the World Wide Web is great, but you, you make me salivate. Yes, I love technology, but not as much as you, you see. But I still love technology… always and forever. Our love is like a flock of doves flying up to heaven above. Always and forever.
Love. You can learn all the math in the ‘verse… but you take a boat in the air that you don't love… she'll shake you off just as sure as the turn of the worlds. Love keeps her in the air when she ought to fall down… tells you she's hurting before she keels. Makes her a home. – Malcolm Reynolds
Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together… mass hysteria! – Dr. Peter Venkman
We came, we saw, we kicked its ass. – Dr. Peter Venkman
Do you believe in UFOs, astral projections, mental telepathy, ESP, clairvoyance, spirit photography, telekinetic movement, full trance mediums, the Loch Ness monster and the theory of Atlantis? – Janine
I am the keymaster.
I am the gatekeeper.
Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. – Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows (also Matthew 6:21)
Dumbledore watched her fly away, and as her silvery glow faded he turned back to Snape, and his eyes were full of tears.
‘After all this time?
‘Always,' said Snape.
– J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
I'm going to pull time apart for you. – Amy Pond
Do you wanna come with me? ‘Cause if you do, then I should warn you — you're gonna see all sorts of things. Ghosts from the past. Aliens from the future. The day the Earth died in a ball of flame. It won't be quiet, it won't be safe, and it won't be calm. But I'll tell you what it will be: the trip of a lifetime! – The Ninth Doctor
I'm your density. I mean, your destiny. – George McFly
Stardust, Neil Gaiman
Every lover is, in his heart, a madman, and, in his head, a minstrel. – Tristran
You know when I said I knew little about love? That wasn't true. I know a lot about love. I've seen it, centuries and centuries of it, and it was the only thing that made watching your world bearable. All those wars — pain, lies, hate… It made me want to turn away and never look down again. But when I see the way that mankind loves… you could search to the furthest reaches of the universe and never find anything more beautiful. So yes, I know that love is unconditional. But I also know that it can be unpredictable, unexpected, uncontrollable, unbearable, and strangely easy to mistake for loathing, and… what I'm trying to say, Tristran is… I think I love you. Is this love, Tristran? I never imagined I'd know it for myself. My heart… it feels like my chest can barely contain it. Like it's trying to escape because it doesn't belong to me any more. It belongs to you. And if you wanted it, I'd wish for nothing in exchange: no gifts, no goods, no demonstrations of devotion. Nothing but knowing you loved me too. Just your heart, in exchange for mine. – Yvaine to Tristran
It seems to me that the best relationships, the ones that last, are frequently the ones that are rooted in friendship. You know, one day you look at the person and you see something more than you did the night before. Like a switch has been flicked somewhere. And the person who was just a friend is… suddenly the only person you can ever imagine yourself with. – Dana Scully
Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency, Douglas Adams
Let us think the unthinkable, let us do the undoable, let us prepare to grapple with the ineffable itself, and see if we may not eff it after all.
Tell everyone that when the day is out we shall have a wedding. Or a hanging. Either way, we're gonna have a lot of fun, huh? – Prince John
I'm in lesbians with you. – Scott
When I'm around you, I kind of feel like I'm on drugs. Not that I do drugs. Unless you do drugs, in which case I do them all the time. – Scott
My dearest friend, If you don't mind, I'd like to join you by your side. Where we could gaze into the stars, and sit together, now and forever. For it is plain as anyone could see, we're simply meant to be. – Jack
The Princess Bride (I had to include it!)
Death cannot stop true love. It can only delay it a little while. – Westley
That day, she was amazed to discover that when he was saying ‘As you wish,' what he meant was, ‘I love you.' And even more amazing was the day she realized she truly loved him back. – Grandfather
Westley: Hear this now: I will always come for you.
Buttercup: But how can you be sure?
Westley: This is true love — you think this happens every day?
True love is the greatest thing, in the world-except for a nice MLT — mutton, lettuce and tomato sandwich, where the mutton is nice and lean and the tomato is ripe. – Miracle Max
And the classic:
I love you.
I know. – Han to Leia (AND Leia to Han)
