Our favorite love quotes From ’80s movies

Even if you don’t quite remember the ’80s, we’ve got you covered. Some of the greatest love quotes came from this era, and we’re proud to present to you our sappiest selection.

Baby from Dirty Dancing:


This first love flick captured the hearts of us all as we were swept away by Patrick Swayze’s hunkiness.

Andrew McCarthy from Pretty in Pink:

“You said you couldn’t believe in anyone who didn’t believe in you. I believed in you. You just didn’t believe in me.”

Another big hit starring Molly Ringwald, Pretty in Pink brought on the affectionate side of complicated love.

Harry from When Harry Met Sally:

“I love that you get cold when it is 71 degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle in your nose when you’re looking at me like I’m nuts. I love that after I spend day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes. And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night.”

Our hearts melt as we read this. Can’t every guy be like Harry? This movie poses the question, “Can a man be just friends with a woman?”

Ronny Cammareri from Moonstruck:


Probably one of the most aggressive quotes on our list, Ronny Cammerei from Moonstruck confesses his undying love for Loretta. This quote is a perfect reminder that love isn’t always rainbows and butterflies.

Randy from Valley Girl:

“No one is gonna tell me who I can score with! Now I want this chick, she wants me, so f*** it, we’re goin’ back.”

Randy says this to Julie after she breaks up with him. There is just something about a guy who is this desirable.

Jim Baker from Sixteen Candles:

“That’s why they call them crushes. If they were easy, they’d call them something else.”

Sixteen Candles was a huge sensation in the ’80s and will continue to be a favorite to many girls. It has been called one of the “most quotable movies” from that era.

Johnny from Dirty Dancing:

“Nobody puts Baby in a corner.”

Another quote from my personal favorite, Johnny pulls Baby away from sitting in the corner with her angry parents and does the final dance with her.

The last line of The Princess Bride:


Every girl’s dream is to be in a fairy tale where their prince charming arrives and sweeps them off their feet. The Princess Bride is one of the best romantic movies of this century.

Harry from When Harry Met Sally:

“When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.”
Another love quote from When Harry Met Sally, Harry spills his love for Sally here.

Ronald Miller [Ronald reading Cindy’s poetry] from Can’t Buy Me Love:

“…someday my wish is for him to hold me in his arms, in a sea of deep blue, together at last, together as two.”
There is just something about poetry that soothes our souls!

Kevin from St. Elmo’s Fire:


One of the less romantic, but thought provoking quotes on our list, Kevin gives us our opinion on his theory of what love is.
