2. When Harry Met Sally: "I love that you get cold when its 71 degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour-and-half to order a sandwich.  I love that you get a little crinkle above your nose when you're looking at my like I'm nuts. I love that when I spend a day with you I can still smell your perfume on my clothes. And I love that you are the last person that 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.
