11 Love Dialogues in English from Movies and TV Shows

Love can look very different for different people.

Sometimes, love is beautiful and feels just like a fairy tale. Other times, love means laughing together when one of you messes up.

If you love romance as much as I do, you’ll agree that listening to romantic dialogues is one of the best ways to practice English.

I’ve rounded up a list of unique love dialogues in English from movies and TV shows.

On this list, you’ll find some typical love stories. But you’ll also find some unconventional (not normal) expressions of love.


1. “Notting Hill”

In this classic romance, the perfectly average Will Thacker falls in love with American movie star Anna Scott. Despite radically (extremely) different lives and experiences, the two must decide if their love is worth pursuing.

Will: I live in Notting Hill; you live in Beverly Hills. Everyone in the world knows who you are; my mother has trouble remembering my name.

Anna: Right. Fine. Good decision. The fame thing isn’t really real, you know, and don’t forget, I’m also just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her.

2. “The Proposal”

In this comedy, Margaret Tate convinces her assistant, Andrew Paxton, to fake an engagement in order to avoid deportation. However, after a trip to Alaska and weeks of pretending to be in love, their relationship blossoms into something real.

Andrew: Three days ago, I loathed you. I used to dream about you getting hit by a cab or poisoned.

Margaret: Oh, that’s nice.

Andrew: Yeah, I told you to stop talking. Then we had our little adventure up in Alaska and things started to change. Things changed when we kissed. And when you told me about your tattoo. Even when you checked me out when we were naked.

Andy Dwyer and April Ludgate are a favorite TV couple for many. Andrew’s childish enthusiasm balances April’s dark sense of humor. Together, they prove that love doesn’t need to be complicated.

April: I guess I kind of hate most things, but I never really seem to hate you. So, I want to spend the rest of my life with you. Is that cool?

Andy: Yes. Is it my turn? April, you’re the most awesome person I have ever known in my entire life. I vow to protect you from danger. I don’t care if I have to fight an ultimate fighter, or a bear, or him, your mom, I would take them down. I’m getting mad right now even thinking about it. I’m telling you.

Maybe you don’t think of “The Lord of the Rings” as a romantic movie! But this trilogy has it all: action, suspense and of course romance. Though there are plenty of romantic moments throughout all three movies, there’s something especially beautiful about Eowyn and Faramir. Their love truly grows as they recover from a difficult battle.

Eowyn: The city has fallen silent. There is no warmth left in the sun. It grows so cold.

Faramir: It’s just the damp of the first spring rain. I do not believe this darkness will endure.

5. “The Princess Bride”

The charming Mr. Darcy must fight for Elizabeth Bennet’s affections in this classic novel-turned-movie. Despite family pressure, rumors and miscommunications, the two can’t ignore their feelings and their desire to be together.

Darcy: How can I ever make amends for such behavior?

Elizabeth: After what you have done, it is I who should be making amends.

Darcy: You must know. Surely, you must know it was all for you. You are too generous to trifle with me. If your feelings are still what they were last April, tell me so at once. My affections and wishes have not changed, but one word from you will silence me forever. If, however, your feelings have changed, I will have to tell you: you have bewitched me, body and soul, and I love, I love, I love you. I never wish to be parted from you from this day on.

Sally: I’m sorry, Harry, I know it’s New Years Eve, I know you’re feeling lonely, but you just can’t show up here, tell me you love me and expect that to make everything alright. It doesn’t work this way.

Harry: Well, how does it work?

Sally: I don’t know, but not this way.

Harry: How about this way? I love that you get cold when it’s 71 degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle above your nose when you’re looking at me like I’m nuts. I love that after I spend the day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes. And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night. And it’s not because I’m lonely, and it’s not because it’s New Year’s Eve. I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.

How to Learn English with Love Dialogues

Here are some steps for using the love dialogues on this list:

  • First, find someone to practice with. This can be a romantic partner, a friend or a classmate.
  • Pick one of the love dialogues on our list. Each one comes with a YouTube video, so you can hear how the actors pronounce each word. If you’re a beginner, choose a short video. If you’re more advanced, choose one of the longer dialogues.
  • Once you’ve chosen your dialogue, watch the video. Then, read through the lines with your partner. Switch characters so that you have a chance to practice all the sentences.
  • After you’re done reading, watch the movie again and compare your pronunciation with the actors.

In addition to using love dialogue videos to learn vocabulary and grammar by implementing a listening and watching element into your language learning routine, you can try a program like FluentU.

FluentU takes authentic videos—like music videos, movie trailers, news and inspiring talks—and turns them into personalized language learning lessons.
