Cape Fear (1991)
Danielle: If you hold on to the past, you die a little each day...

Max Cady: D'you mind if I put my arm around you?
Daniel: Um...
[looks away, embarrassed and laughs awkwardly]
Max Cady: It's OK.
Daniel: Um... No. No, I don't mind.

[first lines]
Danielle: My reminiscence. I always thought that for such a lovely river the name is mystifying: "Cape Fear". When the only thing to fear on those enchanted summer nights was that the magic would end and real life would come crashing in.

[last lines]
Danielle: [voiceover] We never spoke about what happened, at least not to each other. Fear, I suppose, that to remember his name and what he did would mean letting him into our dreams. And me, I hardly dream about him anymore. Still, things won't ever be the way they were before he came. But that's alright because if you hang onto the past you die a little every day. And for myself, I know I'd rather live.
[whispers]
Danielle: The end.

Sam Bowden: He says we're fugitives!
Danielle: What does that mean?
Sam Bowden: That means we're doing something right!
