The Blue Lagoon (1980)
Richard: What are you LOOKING at?
Emmeline: Your muscles.
Richard: What about them? You're really acting silly lately, Em. Always saying DUMB things like that. Always LOOKING at me funny! You're not coming down with something, are you? Don't give it to me.

Richard: [while eating fruit] Kiss me.
Emmeline: You're all sticky!
Richard: So what? Kiss me!
Emmeline: [kisses Richard, but Richard won't let her go] Stop! I can't breathe!
Richard: But I don't wanna stop.

Emmeline: We're never getting off this island, Richard.
Richard: Thanks to you!
Emmeline: This is where we live, Richard. This is our home, now and forever.
Richard: No! I could never live here with JUST you! I don't even like you! You never used to laugh at me! You never used to have secrets you wouldn't tell me!
Emmeline: Well, you're not so perfect either, Mr. Richard Lestrange. I've seen you playing with it, and I'll tell your father, IF he ever gets here.
Richard: YOU? I hate you!
[throws a rock at her, narrowly missing her]
Emmeline: You almost hit me!
Richard: Take it back! Take back what you said!
Emmeline: I've seen it all! What happens after you've been doing it a long time?
Richard: Shut up! That's not fair peeking! I don't peek on you!
Emmeline: That's a lie! You're always staring at my buppies.
Richard: Only 'cause they look so funny! You know what you look like now, Em? You look like one of those pictures Paddy had in his drawer. One of his hootchie-cootchie girls!

Richard: I feel so a funny in my stomach.
Emmeline: Me too.
Richard: My heart's beating so fast.
Emmeline: Mine too.

Richard: What would I ever do with out my Em?

Richard: [overpowering Emmeline] Say "Richard is the smartest person on this island".
Emmeline: No!
Richard: Say it!
Emmeline: Stop it, Richard! I'm getting angry! Stop it! Get off!
Richard: Say it!
Emmeline: Richard is the smartest person on this island.
Richard: Fastest swimmer!
Emmeline: Fastest swimmer.
Richard: And the fastest runner!
Emmeline: Fastest runner.
Richard: Best hut builder!
Emmeline: You're the best at everything, Richard! Now get off!
Richard: [smirks] It's true.

Emmeline: [imitating Richard] It doesn't scare them off unless I can spear them!
[throws an umbrella that acted as the spear]
Richard: Aw, spear you!

Richard: There's so many things I don't understand, like why do the fish stop swimming and lie on top of the tide pools after a heavy rain? Why do you hear the waves inside the big shells? Why are all these funny hairs growing on me? I wish a big book with all the answers to every question in the world would drop out of the sky and land in my hands right now. I'd read it till I knew everything.
Emmeline: Oh Richard, you can't know everything. Only God knows everything.
Richard: God - He can't find us any better than Santa Claus.

Richard: [tries to kiss Emmeline, but she cringes]
Emmeline: I'm sorry, Richard.
Richard: You didn't want to all day yesterday, either. What's the matter, Em? Don't you love me anymore?
Emmeline: Yes, I love you more than ever, Richard.
Richard: Then why don't you wanna do it?
Emmeline: It just hurts right now, that's all. When it stops hurting, we'll do it.
Richard: When is THAT gonna be? I don't understand, Em. Why does it hurt?
Emmeline: I don't know. I don't know anything. But if you touch my tummy right now, you can feel it.
Richard: Feel what?
[puts his hand on Em's belly]
Richard: How'd you make your tummy move like that?
Emmeline: I'm not doing it.
Richard: It's not doing it by itself.
Emmeline: Yes it is.

Richard: [attempt at prayer] Our Father, Lord in heaven... kingdom come... with liberty and justice for all. Amen.

Paddy: [chasing Richard and Em] Come back here and put your clothes on!
Young Richard: I don't wanna wear my old britches!
Paddy: It ain't proper to be runnin' 'round naked...
[stops, out of breath]
Paddy: ... all the time!

Young Richard: [looking at a picture of a family] Paddy, what's subjugation?
Paddy: Something I've been trying to avoid all my life.

[first lines]
Young Emmeline: Richard, don't go out too far.
Young Richard: Em's a fraidy cat!
Arthur Lestrange: Richard! Emmeline! Come back here! This minute! And be careful!

Young Richard: Where are we?
[after their lifeboat ran aground on the island and Paddy hopped out of the boat and marched up the beach]
Paddy: Nirvana! That's where we are.


Return to the Blue Lagoon (1991)
Capt. Jacob Hilliard: We appreciate your hospitality and hope you will offer us the opportunity to repay you.
Richard: You can. You can take us with you back to civilization...
Sylvia Hilliard: I should think it must be ever so boring here.
Richard: What is the meaning of boring.
Sylvia Hilliard: Well boring's when... you have nothing whatever to do. So you're bored, like you must be here.
Richard: [suggestively] No. We're never bored!

Lilli: I'm gonna keep this forever.
Richard: What's that?
Lilli: My prize. The white bead. I think... It looks nice in my hair. Do you?
Richard: I don't care what you do with it, or how you wear it. You can hang it from you nose for all I care.

Sylvia Hilliard: It's no time to be thinking about Lilli!
Richard: I told her I'd never hurt her.
Sylvia Hilliard: Don't feel sorry for her, Richard. She's had you all to herself. But she doesn't own you. You're not married!
Richard: We are married!
Sylvia Hilliard: But not really. A lot of made up words in the middle of the jungle doesn't count!
Richard: It does to me.
Sylvia Hilliard: Why don't you just... Follow your heart
Richard: Lilli is my heart.

Richard: With this ring, I thee wed, Lilli.
Lilli: With this ring, I thee wed, Richard.
[They exchange wedding rings]
Lilli: And now were...
Richard: One. Forever.

Lilli: You lied to me.
Richard: When did I lie to you?
Lilli: You promised you'd never hurt me.
Richard: [concerned] And when did I hurt you?
Lilli: Every time you stare at her, you hurt me.
Richard: Well, I'm sorry. It's just that she's so different.

Lilli: Mother died six years ago.
Capt. Jacob Hilliard: How do you follow the years?
Richard: She taught us. We count the moons, we know that twelve full moon are one year.
Lilli: We have Christmas and Thanksgiving, and Easter, although we're not exactly sure we celebrate them on the right days.
Capt. Jacob Hilliard: It's utterly amazing, the two of you all these years in this remote, Godforsaken place.
Lilli: Not Godforsaken, Captain Hilliard. Not Godforsaken at all.

[last lines]
Lilli: There's a baby growing inside me.
Richard: [excited] Lilli... How do you know?
Lilli: [smiles] A woman knows these things... that's how.
[Richard smiles excitedly at her]
Lilli: I won't let it be born in civilization. I want it to be born right here. Where there's no evil, and no lies, and no guns.
Richard: You're right. Well stay here. Just the three of us. I love you, Lilli.

Lilli: I always weather a storm well. I get that from Mother.
Richard: Yes, you do. Captain Hilliard says he wants to set sail at dawn.
Lilli: [sadly] I guess that means that Captain Hilliard's daughter wants to set sail at dawn.
Richard: I don't care what she wants. I don't care about her at all, I know that now, Lilli. Do you understand? You're the most important thing in the whole world to me.
Lilli: Well you can set sail at dawn... But we're not going.

Richard: You remember when I wanted to go to the north side of the island, just because I couldn't.
Lilli: [glares at him] Yes I do. And I also remember what almost happened to you when you did go!


The Blue Lagoon (1949)
Michael Reynolds: Em, you're trembling.
Emmeline Foster: So are you.
Michael Reynolds: I know.
