Top 10 Best Quotes

“You mother-fudging son of a C-U-Next-Tuesday!”

“You want to take me out for dinner?” I say slowly. “Yes.” “Why?” He gives me a look that says I should already know the answer. “Because you’re my girl, Red.”

“You’re my best friend, Red,” he said softly, eyes sweeping the floor beneath our feet. “My only friend.”

“I’m not good, Carrie.” He stares down at his hands that are stretched out on his thighs. “There’s a darkness inside of me.” “No. There’s a survivor inside of you.”

“I feel it – the exact moment something shifts between us. Like it snaps and then clicks into place. I know he feels it, too. I don’t quite know exactly what it is or what it means, but I just know that it matters. It matters a lot.”

“I can feel his hand trembling as he lifts mine and places it against his chest. Over his heart. I flatten my palm. I can feel his heart pounding beneath his solid chest. “You make it do that,” he roughly tells me.”

“Because you’re my best friend, Red,” he says softly, eyes sweeping the floor beneath our feet. “My only friend.”

“Love is like a river, never ending as it flows but gets greater with time.”

“I wanted to ask you something.” “Do I have to answer?” “Only if you want to.” “I really don’t.” “Okay.” “For fuck’s sake.” He sighs and turns to look at me. “What is it?” I feel a bit stupid now But I started this, so I have to forge on. I rub my hands together. “Well, I was just wondering…are we…friends?” “Wait.” He holds up a hand. “Have I just defied the laws of time and travelled back to grade school?” “Funny.” “I know. And, no, Red, we aren’t friends.” “Oh. Right.” My heart dips. I bite my lower lip to stop it from turning down. He sighs again. “I don’t do friends, Carrie.” His voice is lower now. “But if I did, then you’d be the closest thing I have to one.”

“I love you,” he says. The words spoken so simply…easily but with so much meaning.”
