In a moment that I can only describe as “swoon worthy”, the snaky reporter played by the gorgeous Richard Gere corners the runaway bride. He confronts her with the following line: “You want a man who’ll lead you down the beach with his hand over your eyes, just so you can discover the feel of sand under your feet. You want a guy that’ll wake you up at dawn. He’s just bursting to talk to you, can’t wait another minute just to find out what you’ll say. Am I right?” At this point you can find me passionately shouting at the television, “Yes Richard! Yes I do!” Oh come on… you thought it too!

6 “Pretty Woman” - the Fire Escape Rescue

Nothing breaks the ice like a moment of silliness. As Ben Affleck’s character faces an upcoming mission to save the world (literally), he takes a moment to ease the tension with animal crackers climbing the landscape of his girlfriend’s body. It is a sweet moment of intimacy between young lovers who know they might never be together again.
