The Bridges of Madison County (1995)
Robert Kincaid: This kind of certainty comes but just once in a lifetime.

Robert: If you want me to stop, tell me now.
Francesca: No one's asking you to.

Francesca: Robert, please. You don't understand, no-one does. When a woman makes the choice to marry, to have children; in one way her life begins but in another way it stops. You build a life of details. You become a mother, a wife and you stop and stay steady so that your children can move. And when they leave they take your life of details with them. And then you're expected move again only you don't remember what moves you because no-one has asked in so long. Not even yourself. You never in your life think that love like this can happen to you.
Robert Kincaid: But now that you have it...
Francesca: I want to keep it forever. I want to love you the way I do now the rest of my life. Don't you understand... we'll lose it if we leave. I can't make an entire life disappear to start a new one. All I can do is try to hold onto to both. Help me. Help me not lose loving you.

Robert: The old dreams were good dreams; they didn't work out, but glad I had them.

Robert Kincaid: I don't want to need you, 'cause I can't have you.

Robert Kincaid: Don't kid yourself, Francesca: you are anything but a simple woman.

Robert: When I think of why I make pictures, the reason that I can come up with just seems that I've been making my way here. It seems right now that all I've ever done in my life is making my way here to you.

Robert Kincaid: Things change. They always do, it's one of the things of nature. Most people are afraid of change, but if you look at it as something you can always count on, then it can be a comfort.

Francesca: What were you like when you were younger?
Robert Kincaid: Trouble.
