It's February, so the topic
of "Romance" is a natural. Let's see how some
of our favorite TV characters express their
true feelings on love and that special mate.
"There are some
people who meet that somebody that they can
never stop loving, no matter how hard they
try. I wouldn't expect you to understand that,
or even believe it, but trust me, there are
some loves that don't go away. And maybe that
makes them crazy, but we should all be lucky
enough to end up with somebody who has a
little of that insanity. Someone who never
lets go. Someone who cherishes you forever."
-- Ally, Ally McBeal
"I look at you and I see my best friend. Your
energy and passion inspire me in ways I never
thought possible. Your inner beauty is so
strong that I no longer fear being myself. I
no longer fear at all. I never thought I'd
find someone to love that would love me back
unconditionally. And then I realize that
although we were often apart, you were always
with me and you were always my soul mate. You
give me purpose when I feel I have none.
Without you my soul would be empty, my heart
would be broken, my being incomplete. I thank
God every day you were brought into my life
and I thank you for loving me." -- Donna Martin to her husband David, Beverly Hills, 90210
"Hey, I'm well aware of how lucky I am. Like,
lottery lucky. Buffy's like nobody else in the
world. When I'm with her, it's like I'm split
in two -- half of me is just on fire, going
crazy if I'm not touching her. Other half is
so still and peaceful, just perfectly content.
Just knows: this is the one. ...But she
doesn't love me." -- Riley Finn, Buffy the Vampire Slayer
"To me, our relationship makes perfect sense.
You want me to propose to you, I propose to
you. You say no, I say fine, I never wanna see
you again. You drive me nuts telling me you
want me to propose again, I do, you turn me
down. Next thing I know I'm in a court of law
where I've got to propose to you or go to
jail. It's the classic American love story." -- Sam Malone to
Diane Chambers, Cheers
thought I'd fall in love again. Then you
came along, and you made me feel so
good......and guilty. Even ashamed.
No one would
believe this, but you're the first man
I've ever completely trusted.
Oh, and then
I go and do what I did to you. C'mere.
Listen to me. I'll never let you down
again. I want to take care of you. I
want you to be my girl. I want to know
every inch of you, and when I get done I
want to start all over again. Just say
you'll give me a chance.

Hey, I don't

"When you care for somebody, I mean, when you
really care for somebody, you don't try to
change them. You take the good with the bad
and you be thankful for what you've got. And I
forgot to be thankful. I tried to change you
and I was wrong. And I'm sorry." -- Major Tony" Nelson to
Jeannie I Dream of Jeannie
"Lois, I have loved you from the moment I saw
you. I love your humor, your passion, and the
way you just dive right in, even when you
shouldn't. Because you refuse to just watch
the world. You demand that it be a better
place, and because of you, it is. And today I
want to give you as much of the world as I
can. And so I give you my heart, my soul, and
our future. "
"Clark, you're my best friend. Until I met
you, I never had a best friend. And falling in
love with you has been so easy, I don't know
why I fought it so long. You have such gentle
grace and such quiet strength. And mostly,
such incredible kindness. I've never known
anyone with as pure a heart. And so, today, I
give you my love, and my honor, and our

"Remember, attraction is a three-way street.
Or is it a one-way tunnel? Hmm, in any case, I
do know it's a four-lane highway, but it takes
two to use the car-pool lane. I guess what I'm
trying to say is, what the younger generation
has learned is that there's nothing for us to
watch on CBS, and you've got to be yourself. A
man has to love you for you, not some costume.
He's gotta love who you are." -- Kelly Bundy,
"Love is when you look into someone's eyes,
and suddenly, you go all the way inside, to
their soul...and you both know, instantly. I
always imagined I would fall in love, nursing
a blind soldier. Who was wounded in battle. Or
maybe while rescuing someone in the middle of
a blizzard, seconds before the avalanche hits.
I thought, at least, by the age of fifteen, I
would have a love life. But, I don't even have
a 'like' life." --
Angela, My So-Called Life.
"Tell him I'm going to the back seat of my car
with the woman I love, and I won't be back for
ten minutes!" -- Homer Jay Simpson, The Simpsons
