Love Story (1970) Poster



Oliver Barrett IV: Love means never having to say you're sorry.

Jennifer Cavalieri: You look stupid and rich.

Oliver Barrett IV: Well, what if I'm smart and poor?

Jennifer Cavalieri: *I'm* smart and poor.

Oliver Barrett IV: Well what makes you so smart?

Jennifer Cavalieri: I wouldn't go out for coffee with you that's what.

Oliver Barrett IV: Well what if I wasn't even gonna ask you to go out for coffee with me?

Jennifer Cavalieri: Well that's what makes you stupid.

Oliver Barrett IV: See, I think you're scared. You put up a big glass wall to keep from getting hurt. But it also keeps you from getting touched. It's a risk, isn't it, Jenny? At least I had the guts to admit what I felt. Someday you're gonna have to come up with the courage to admit you care.

Jennifer Cavalieri: I care.

Jennifer Cavalieri: You're gonna flunk out if you don't study.

Oliver Barrett IV: I am studying.

Jennifer Cavalieri: Bullshit. You're looking at my legs.

Oliver Barrett IV: You know, Jenny, you're not that great looking.

Jennifer Cavalieri: I know. But can I help it if you think so?

Phil Cavaleri: Amen.

Boy: It hasn't started yet.

Phil Cavaleri: How am I supposed to know? I've never been to a do-it-yourself wedding before.

Oliver Barrett III: If you marry her now, I'll not give you the time of day.

Oliver Barrett IV: Father, you don't know the time of day!

[first lines]

Oliver Barrett IV: What can you say about a twenty-five-year-old girl who died? That she was beautiful and brilliant? That she loved Mozart and Bach, the Beatles, and me?

Oliver Barrett IV: Jenny... I'm sorry.

Jennifer Cavalieri: Don't. Love means never having to say you're sorry.

[last lines]

Oliver Barrett III: Oliver, why didn't you tell me? I made a couple of calls and as soon as I found out I jumped right in the car. Oliver, I want to help.

Oliver Barrett IV: Jenny's dead.

Oliver Barrett III: I'm sorry...

Oliver Barrett IV: [cuts him off] Love- love means never having to say you're sorry!

[walks away]
