an endless list of that can’t-eat, can’t-sleep, reach-for-the-stars, over-the-fence, world series kind of stuffmovies

you’ve got mail (1998); “The odd thing about this form of communication is that you’re more likely to talk about nothing than something. But I just want to say that all this nothing has meant more to me than so many somethings.”

Joe Fox: You know, sometimes I wonder… 
Kathleen Kelly: What? 
Joe Fox: Well… if I hadn’t been Fox Books and you hadn’t been The Shop Around the Corner, and you and I had just, well, met… 
Kathleen Kelly: I know. 
Joe Fox: Yeah. I would have asked for your number, and I wouldn’t have been able to wait twenty-four hours before calling you and saying, “Hey, how about… oh, how about some coffee or, you know, drinks or dinner or a movie… for as long as we both shall live?" 
Kathleen Kelly: Joe… 
Joe Fox: And you and I would have never been at war. And the only thing we’d fight about would be which video to rent on a Saturday night. 
Kathleen Kelly: Well, who fights about that? 
Joe Fox: Well, some people. Not us. 
Kathleen Kelly: We would never. 
Joe Fox: If only. 


“Don’t cry, Shopgirl. Don’t cry.”
“I wanted it to be you.”

You've Got Mail
  • Joe Fox:  It wasn't... personal.
  • Kathleen Kelly:  What is that supposed to mean? I am so sick of that. All that means is that it wasn't personal to you. But it was personal to me. It's *personal* to a lot of people. And what's so wrong with being personal, anyway?
  • Joe Fox:  Uh, nothing.
  • Kathleen Kelly:  Whatever else anything is, it ought to begin by being personal.
