Sick = LOTS of movie watching at our house.
It's a tradition rooted in my childhood, when my dad made a special VHS tape of all three of the original Star Wars movies on it, back to back (Episodes IV, V, & VI---I have always been a mega Ewok girl! And I remember being like 3 years old and hiding from the Sand People behind my dad when we'd watch Episode IV on our old laser disc player, lol...). But that tape required some SEVERE coach devotion. Therefore, there was never a doubt as to if one of us was really sick when that tape was in the VCR!
So, the other day it was the entire Lord of the Rings Trilogy for me....extended director's cut....appendices as well.
Today, for Miss Mini-Me, it's Letters to Juliet.
So where's the brightness? Well in my favorite scene.
Ready for it?
Of course it's the balcony scene when Charlie's climbed the trellis, realizing Sophie's no longer engaged to Victor...and says:
"...Listen to me very, very carefully.
I live in London, a gorgeous, vibrant, historic city that I happen to love living in.
You live in New York, which is highly overrated...
But since the Atlantic Ocean is a bit wide to cross every day, swimming, boating, or flying, I suggest we flip for it...
And if those terms are unacceptable, leaving London will be a pleasure, as long as you're waiting for me on the other side.
'Cause the truth is, Sophie, I am madly, deeply, truly, passionately in love with you."
Oh my goodness, makes me giddy every time I hear those words. Total chills.
So there you have it, instant brightness!
You are welcome. (:
