After it looks as if she's left his life for good this time, Tom Hansen reflects back on the just over one year that he knew Summer Finn. For Tom, it was love at first sight when she walked into the greeting card company where he worked, she the new administrative assistant. Soon, Tom knew that Summer was the woman with whom he wanted to spend the rest of his life. Although Summer did not believe in relationships or boyfriends - in her assertion, real life will always ultimately get in the way - Tom and Summer became more than just friends. Through the trials and tribulations of Tom and Summer's so-called relationship, Tom could always count on the advice of his two best friends, McKenzie and Paul. However, it is Tom's adolescent sister, Rachel, who is his voice of reason. After all is said and done, Tom is the one who ultimately has to make the choice to listen or not.Written by
Zooey Deschanel (Summer) has many connections to Simon & Garfunkel; in 500 Days of Summer, she cries watching The Graduate with Tom (Joseph Gordon-Levitt). The Graduate's famous soundtrack was provided by Simon & Garfunkel. At that point in the film, Bookends Theme - by Simon & Garfunkel - is playing in the background. And in Almost Famous, Zooey's character gives a Simon & Garfunkel album to her younger brother. See more »
On day (8) Summer says that she just moved to New York on Saturday, but since Tom first saw her on day (1), her first day at work, she would have to have moved in more than a week before day (8) which would mean that it would have to have been at least two Saturdays before. See more »
Unfortunately when a man express his feelings in a transparence and honest way then women (most of them) find him as a cheap one or see themselves on a higher level!
So if you fall in love and want to get her heart, then never be so honest and don't show her how much you love her! Try to be cold and arrogant! It works for most of them (not 100%).
