Practical Magic (1998)
Sally Owens: What would you do, Gilly?
Gillian Owens: What wouldn't I do... for the right guy?

Gillian Owens: Hang onto your husbands, girls!

Gillian Owens: [possessed by Jimmy] Yee-haw. I'm feeling very into sisters right now.

Gillian Owens: You ever put your arms out and spin really, really fast?
Antonia Owens: She does it all the time.
Gillian Owens: She does? Well, that's what love is like. It makes your heart race. It turns the world upside down. But if you're not careful, if you don't keep your eyes on something still, you can lose your balance. You can't see what's happening to the people around you. You can't see that you're about to fall.

[after they make a binder ring snap on a mother's finger]
Sally Owens: [to Gillian] Don't do that.
Gillian Owens: It wasn't me, it was you!
[Both giggling]
Mother: Oh I am so please to report this, and the top of the phone tree list is... wait a minute, it's Sally Owens.

Sally Owens: WITCH!

Sally Owens: I feel like I'm never going to see you again.
Gillian Owens: Of course you're going to see me again! We'll grow old together. It's going to be you and me living in a big house... these two old biddies with all these cats. I bet we even die on the same day.

Gillian Owens: [possessed by Jimmy Angelov's spirit; crying] He wants me... just me. Everyone will be all right. Let him take me...
Sally Owens: Don't die on me, Gillian Owens, please. 'Cause - we're supposed to die together, remember? The same time. You promised me that. And this is not that day.

Jimmy Angelov: I was just thinking about you.
Gillian Owens: You're always thinking about me.

Gillian Owens: [about Jimmy Angelov] And he's strong. So much stronger than me. He can survive the curse.

Gillian Owens: Please, God, if you get us out of this, I'll be good. I'll have babies!
Sally Owens: I have babies, Gillian. I had normal. And I worked really hard to get that normal.

Gillian Owens: We've been driving for 2 weeks straight. I mean, not even straight. In these zigzags, back and forth.

Sally Owens: You really should stop smoking so much.
Gillian Owens: Why? I'll probably get life. I should smoke two at once. It'll shorten the sentence.

Gillian Owens: [Fearfully] Blood on the moon!

Sally Owens: [Performing a spell] Okay! I need for you to get me something white to write on top of the star. Chop-chop!
Gillian Owens: [Grabs a can of whip cream] This is all I could find.

Gillian Owens: [to Sally, after they've killed Jimmy Angelov, resurrected him, and killed him again] I know this sounds really stupid, and everything, right now, but I just, I just really wanted to say, um... Thank you. Thanks for being my sister.

Gillian Owens: [Angrily] Yeah. Yeah, you're right. You're always right, Sally. Oh, I'm just a mess. Just one big mess! Well, at least I've lived my life. And you hate me for that because... because it scares the hell out of you.
Sally Owens: Gillian, I don't hate you.
Sally Owens: [Still angry] Look at you! You spend all your energy just trying to fit in, be normal! But you're never gonna fit in, Sal, because we're different!

Sally Owens, Gillian Owens: [Reciting a spell to resurrect Jimmy] Black as night, erase death from our sight. White as light, Mighty Hectate make it right.

Gillian Owens: I love you.
Sally Owens: I love you too, Gilly Bean.

Gillian Owens: [Before performing the resurrection spell] Okay, Jimmy, I will get you out of this but when I do, we are *definitely* breaking up.

Sally Owens: [Annoyed] Gillian, if you're going to work here, maybe you could... I dunno... Work?
Gillian Owens: I am. I'm testing the merchandise.

Gillian Owens: [about Officer Hallet] Is he cute?
Sally Owens: Yeah, he's... nice... in a very penal code sort of way, yeah.

Gillian Owens: [to Officer Hallet, slightly menacing in tone] If a man hits me, he only does it once.

Young Sally Owens: He will hear my call a mile away. He will whistle my favorite song. He can ride a pony backwards.
Young Gillian Owens: What are you doing?
Young Sally Owens: Summoning up a true love spell called Amas Veritas. He can flip pancakes in the air. He'll be marvelously kind. And his favorite shape will be a star. And he'll have one green eye and one blue.
Young Gillian Owens: Thought you never wanted to fall in love.
Young Sally Owens: That's the point. The guy I dreamed of doesn't exist. And if he doesn't exist, I'll never die of a broken heart.

Young Gillian Owens: [about the Owen's ancestor, Maria] Is that why they wanted to hang her? Because she was a witch?
Aunt Frances Owens: The fact that she was a bit of a heartbreaker didn't help. Nor did it help that most of her lovers had wives on the hanging committee.
