Burt: I lost somebody I loved very much. But Kurt . . . he lost his mom. And that killed me. Well, we got by, but looking back, I want to apologize to you, Kurt. What we were living just wasn’t living . . . You’re everything, Carole. Words can’t describe you. You’re everything. And I will love you till the day I die.
Carole: Oh, hey . . . I’m lucky . . . Kurt, you are an amazing person. I’m not only getting a son, I’m getting a friend. Finn, I know you were resistant at first, but I am so proud of you. I’ve watched you grow into a man. But I think I’m most proud that you’ve become a brother to Kurt. We are four people. Becoming a family.

Monica: Then three years ago, at another wedding, I turned to a friend for comfort. And instead, I found everything that I’d ever been looking for my whole life. And now — here we are — with our future before us, and I only want to spend it with you, my prince, my soul mate, my friend. Unless you don’t want to. You go!
Chandler: Monica, I thought this was going to be the most difficult thing I ever had to do. But when I saw you walking down that aisle, I realized how simple it was. I love you . . . You are the person I was meant to spend the rest of my life with. You wanna know if I’m sure? (He leans in and kisses her.)
Joey: You may not kiss the bride. So, I guess by the powers vested in me by the state of New York and the Internet guys, I now pronounce you husband and wife.

Tom: Um . . .

9. Medea’s Family Reunion:
Vanessa: I never thought that I could meet someone like you. You are my friend. You are my smile. You are my everything. You are a breathtaking reflection of God’s heart for me . . . of how he pursued me and loved me even when I didn’t love myself. You held my hand in the darkness, and you pulled me out into the light. I love you.
Frankie: You are my light. And it doesn’t matter what happens in this life as long as you’re with me. When I look at you, I know that there’s a God, and that he loved me so much that he took the time to create you just for me. I love you . . . past my mind . . . beyond my heart . . . I love you for my soul. And that’s the space where only you and God dwell.
10. The Runaway Bride:
Maggie: “Look, I guarantee there’ll be tough times. I guarantee. . .at some point one or both of us is gonna want to get out of this thing. But, I also guarantee that if I don’t ask you to be mine, I’ll regret it the rest of my life. Because I know in my heart. . .you’re the only one for me.”
Luka: Be my wife. I offer myself with all my faults and strengths. We’ll help each other when we need help and work together to raise our son. I choose you as the person I will love and honor for the rest of my days.
Abby: First of all, I love you. I do. And you’ve helped me through a lot. We got here together with a beautiful little boy. I was thinking of a poem* before when I was getting ready. I think it starts, I carry your heart in my heart. I’m never without it. Anywhere I go, you go. I’m probably messing the whole thing up, but I think the end goes, and this is the wonder that keeps the stars apart. I carry your heart. I carry it in my heart. So i guess what I’m saying is, let’s just try to love each other and persevere.
12. Grey’s Anatomy:
Christina, I could promise to hold you and to cherish you. I can promise to be there in sickness and in health. I could say til death do us part, but I won’t. Those vows are for optimistic couples, the ones full of hope, and I do not stand here on my wedding day optimistic or full of hope. I am not optimistic. I am not hopeful. I am sure. I am steady. And I know that I am a heart man. I take them apart. I put them back together. I hold them in my hands. I am a heart man. So this I am sure. You are my partner, my lover my very best friend. My heart beats for you and on this day, the day of our wedding, I promise you this. I promise you to lay my heart in the palm of your hands. I promise you me.
13. When Harry Met Sally:
“I love that you get cold when it’s seventy-one 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 in 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.”

“Love is a gift…not an obligation”
16. Chasing Amy:
“I love you. Very simple, very truly. You’re the epitome of every attribute and quality I’ve ever looked for in another person… I can’t stand next to you without wanting to hold you. I can’t look into your eyes without feeling that longing you only read about in trashy romance novels. I can’t talk to you without wanting to express my love for everything you are… I’ve never felt this before, and I like who I am because of it… There isn’t another soul on this… planet who’s ever made me half the person I am when I’m with you… I’m forever changed because of who you are and what you’ve meant to me.”
17. Notting Hill:

19. The Notebook:
“Poets often describe love as an emotion that we can’t control, one that overwhelms logic and common sense. That’s what it’s like for me. I didn’t plan on falling in love with you, and I doubt that you planned on falling in love with me. But once we met, it was clear that neither of us could control what was happening to us. We fell in love, despite our differences, and once we did, something rare and beautiful was created. For me, love like that has happened only once, and that’s why every minute we spent together has been seared in my memory. I’ll never forget a single moment of it.”
Paige: “I vow to help you love life, to always hold you with tenderness and to have the patience that love demands, to speak when words are needed and to share the silence when they are not, to agree to disagree on red velvet cake, and to live within the warmth of your heart and always call it home.”
Leo: “I vow to fiercely love you in all your forms, now and forever. I promise to never forget that this is a once in a lifetime love. And to always know in the deepest part of my soul that no matter what challenges might carry us apart, we will always find our way back to each other.”
