Quotes from the Movie The Holiday

It's Christmas Eve and we are going to go celebrate being young and being alive

Miles

Exactly, and on top of that there's the old standby, I can't believe a girl like that would actually be with a guy like me.

Iris, if you were a melody... I used only the good notes.

The wind... it's what makes it so warm this time of year. Legend has it, when the Santa Anas blow, anything can happen.

And it doesn't matter how many new haircuts you get, or gyms you join, or how many glasses of chardonnay you drink with your girlfriends... you still go to bed every night going over every detail and wonder what you did wrong or how you could have misunderstood and how in the hell for that brief moment you could think that you were that happy. And sometimes you can even convince yourself that he'll see the light and show up at your door. And after all that, however long all that may be, you'll go somewhere new. and you'll meet people who make you feel worthwhile again. And little peices of your soul will finally come back. And all that fuzzy stuff, those years of your life that you wasted, that will eventually begin to fade.

Iris

And sometimes you can even convince yourself that he'll see the light and show up at your door. And after all that, however long all that may be, you'll go somewhere new, and you'll meet people who make you feel worthwhile again, and little pieces of your soul will finally come back. And all that fuzzy stuff, those years of your life that you wasted, that will eventually begin to fade.

Iris

Because you're hoping you're wrong. And everytime she does something that tells you she's no good, you ignore it. And evertime she comes through and suprises you, she wins you over, and you lose that argument with yourself, that she's not for you.

Iris

[switching her phoneline to Graham] I can't believe you went and had sex with that woman already!

Iris

I have found almost everything ever written about love to be true. Shakespeare said, "Journeys end in lovers meeting." What an extraordinary thought.

Graham

I have a cow and I sew. How's that for "hard to relate to"?

I have the classic male problem of no follow through. Absolutely never remember to call after a date - but as this wasn't a date, I guess I'm off the hook.
