What If Someone You Never Met, 
Someone You Never Saw, 
Someone You Never Knew 
Was The Only Someone For You?

Destiny is something we've invented 
because we can't stand the fact that everything that happens is accidental. 
[Annie Reed]

When a man is a widower why do we say he was widowed? 
Why don't we say he was widowered?
[Annie Reed] 

Your destiny can be your doom. Look at me and my Rick.

[Annie Reed]: Now that was when people KNEW how to be in love. They knew it! 
Time, distance... nothing could separate them because they knew. 
It was right. It was real. It was... 
[Becky]: A movie! That's your problem! 
You don't want to be in love. You want to be in love in a movie.

Look, Annie... I love you. 
But let's leave that out of this. 
I don't want to be someone that you're settling for. 
I don't want to be someone that anyone settles for. 
Marriage is hard enough without bringing such low expectations into it, isn't it? 

[Doctor Marcia Fieldstone]: People who truly loved once are far more likely to love again. 
Sam, do you think there's someone out there you could love as much as your wife?
[Sam Baldwin]: Well, Dr. Marcia Fieldstone, that's hard to imagine.
[Doctor Marcia Fieldstone]: What are you going to do? 
[Sam Baldwin]: Well, I'm gonna get out of bed every morning... 
breathe in and out all day long. 
Then, after a while I won't have to remind myself to get out of bed every morning 
and breathe in and out... and, then after a while, I won't have to think about how I had it great and perfect for a while.
[Doctor Marcia Fieldstone]: Tell me what was so special about your wife?
[Sam Baldwin]: Well, how long is your program? 
Well, it was a million tiny little things that, when you added them all up, 
they meant we were supposed to be together... and I knew it. 
I knew it the very first time I touched her. 
It was like coming home... only to no home I'd ever known... 
I was just taking her hand to help her out of a car and I knew. 
It was like... magic.

[Taxi Driver, after takes Jonah to Empire State Building]: There it is. 
What are you gonna do when you get up there? Spit off the top?
[Jonah Baldwin]: No, I'm gonna meet my new mother.

Annie, when you're attracted to someone, 
it just means that your subconscious is attracted to their subconscious, subconsciously. 
So what we think of as fate is just two neuroses knowing that they are a perfect match. 
[Dennis Reed]
