Movie Lines: Love Story

“Love means never having to say you’re sorry.”

One of the most parodied lines in a Hollywood movie is also one that we wanna forget–quickly.  It is also a fake line, just cute but no more, because in most love relationships, you feel a need to apologize–a lot–and you do.

Even Ryan O’Neal, the star of the 1970s blockbuster, poked fun at it in Peter Bogdanovich’s 1972 screwball comedy What’s Up, Doc?.

When Barbra Streisand quotes it, he quickly retorts, “That’s the dumbest thing I have ever heard.”
