Best 50 First Dates Quotes

1. “Appreciate your time. Not everybody would have stopped like you. You’re real sweet.” – Henry

2. “Well, when you guys tell her, she’s not just finding out about the accident. She’s finding out that her life is basically a setup. I think that’s what freaks her out the most.” – Henry

3. Henry: “Can I ask you guys something? What’s gonna happen down the line? Someday she’s gonna wake up and look in the mirror and notice her face’s aged 10 years overnight.” 

Marlin: “You know something, Henry? I worry about that every day of my damn life.”

4. Sue: “Lucy is a very special person. Very different from other people. About a year ago, Lucy was in a terrible car accident. She and her father went up North Shore to get a pineapple. Her father broke some ribs, but Lucy suffered a serious head injury. She lost her short-term memory.”

Henry: “So she can’t remember anything?”

Sue: “No, no, no. She has all of her long-term memory. That’s a different part of the brain.

Her whole life, up to the night before the accident, she remembers. She just can’t retain any new information. It’s like her slate gets wiped clean every night while she sleeps.”

5. Henry: “I think she’s a local girl. I wanted to go up to her but I was kind of off my game. But man, was she cute, though.”

Alexa: “I thought you liked your bitches from out of state.”

Henry: “Yeah, that’s usually my policy. Make sure I don’t get tied down.”

Alexa: “Sounds to me like someone is afraid of commitment.”

6. Lucy: “Do you love me?

Henry: “Wow—well, love is a very loaded word. I go to this restaurant every morning, and I see you there, reading. And—I love you very much. Probably more than anybody could love another person.”

7. Lucy: “I don’t know who you are, Henry—but I dream about you almost every night. Why?”

Lucy: “I would say that that makes a lot of sense.”

Henry: “You erased me from your memories because you thought you were holding me back from having a full and happy life. But you made a mistake. Being with you is the only way I could have a full and happy life. You’re the girl of my dreams—and apparently, I’m the man of yours.”

Henry: “I appreciate your interest Ula, but leave me alone.”

Ula: “Hey, you’d be doing exactly what her father does: Giving her a wonderful day. Then when it’s time for you to go on your big boat trip, poof, you just leave. She’ll never even know you’re gone.”

Henry: “See I’m not sure about the ‘poofing’ part, because I’m not a very big poofer. Could you demonstrate a good poof for me?”

10. Ula: “How long it’s gonna take for her memory to come back?”

Henry: “Her doctors say it may never come back.”

Ula: “So basically, what you’re saying is—she’s the perfect girl for you.”

Henry: “What do you mean?”

Ula: “You can hang out all day with no attachment, because—.”

Henry: “Her plane leaves every night? There’s a problem with that.”

Ula: “What is?”

Henry: “It’s evil.”

Henry: “What do you want me to do? Be some chapter in your scrapbook and go?”

Lucy: “No. My plan is to erase you completely so it’s as if you never existed.”

Henry: “Why are you doing this?”

Lucy: “Because you have to understand that there is no future with me. Don’t you want to have a career, marriage and children?”

Henry: “I asked you to marry me last night. You said yes. Kids? Yeah, I’d love to do it.”

Lucy: “But, how is that going to work? I’m gonna wake up every morning with an enormous pregnant belly and no memory of how it happened?”

39. Henry: “Let me ask you something, Alexa. If you made a promise to a girl’s dad that you would not see her anymore—would you consider that like a binding promise?”

44. Ula: “Dude, I met this sexy blonde tax attorney from Florida at Starbucks today. I told her you the kahuna she wanna have fun on this island. You want her number?”

Ula: “Yes. I live vicariously through you, remember? My life sucks. Now, come on, give her the Waikiki sneaky behind the cheeky.”

45. Alexa: “I am grouchy due to lack of recent physical intimacy.”

Henry: “Oooo—.”

Alexa: “Shut up, because here comes a one-time-only opportunity. What I will do now is go into your office and become naked. Next move is up to you. I may not be as limber as I once was—but yeah, I make up for it with enthusiasm and willingness to experiment.”

Do You Believe In True Love?

Love comes in many forms and has many faces. This is shown in 50 First Dates—a movie that displayed unconditional love in all aspects.

For one, Lucy showed us that love would endure even if the mind forgets because the heart will remember what makes it beat. Though challenging, this is one of the things that gives Henry and her family hope and strength to keep going in life.

Another aspect where love can be seen is through Henry. It could’ve been so easy for him if he just chose to flee and forget, but he decided to dedicate the rest of his life to Lucy. He became her compass and guiding light in the confusing world she lived in.

The movie’s last, and probably most underrated, type of love is family love. Our family members have their own dreams and paths to pursue in life. But, Marlin and Doug, knowing Lucy’s condition, decided to sacrifice and dedicate the rest of their lives to protect Lucy.

No doubt, this feel-good romantic comedy is more than just its sweet lines. Love is what makes the world brighter and warmer, so if you’ve found the one you love, do everything to make them happy! Feel free to revisit this list whenever you need a reminder of that fact.

Have you found the one for you? Would you make the same sacrifices for them? Please, share your thoughts below!

Poetry, philosophy, history, and movies are all topics I love writing about! However, my true passion is in traveling, photography, and finding common ground to which everyone from different cultures can relate.

With the many places I’ve been to, I found that love, inspiration, and happiness are some things that bring people together. No matter how different we are on the outside, I’m a true believer that our emotions don’t lie; if you dig deep into our psyche, we’re all the same inside.

This belief was further amplified when I joined Quote Ambition. Through the quotes I’ve read, collected, organized, and written about, I found that humans are resilient, creative, and compassionate.

We take from each others’ hearts and courage, and it’s through our individual experiences that we learn how to rise above our challenges and pain. In so many ways, Quote Ambition is a platform that allows people from all over the world to gain the inspiration they need anytime, anywhere!
