The movie adaptation of 'One Day' features some great, memorable quotes. Some of the best 'One Day' movie quotes involve quips made by Emma Morley (Anne Hathaway) and Dexter Mayhew (Jim Sturgess), as they try to navigate life and each other. 'One Day' is an adaptation of the best-selling novel by David Nicholls. It follows the lives of Emma and Dex for 20 years, offering a snapshot of one day each year. Sometimes they're together as friends, sometimes they're not.
Emma: "When we were at University...I had a crush on you."
Dexter: "So what happened?"
Emma: "I got to know you, you cured me of you."
Emma pretty much tells it like it is, which is one reason why Dex is so drawn to her. Dex really can be a bit of a tool (understatement) at times, and once Emma really gets to know him, she's not nearly as taken with him as she once was...or is she?
Dexter: "We've never actually met."
Emma: "Emma Morley."
Dexter: "I'll walk you home..."
Ah, the fateful first meeting. Little do they know...
Emma: "I think we need some rules..."
Emma: "I'm not taking any chances with our friendship. Separate bedrooms, no flirting and absolutely no skinny dipping."
Rules are made to be broken
Dexter: "The problem is, I pretty much fancy everyone. It's like I've just got out of prison all of the time. It's a real problem."
Emma: "I can imagine..."
Dexter is a playboy, plain and simple. Handsome, successful, high-profile - a complete chick magnet and a total womanizer.
Emma: "Whatever happens tomorrow, we had today. I'll always remember it."
'One Day' offers a snapshot of, you guessed it, one day in the lives of friends Emma and Dex - over a period of two decades. Some days are far more memorable than others, and the one Emma is referring to is definitely worth remembering...
Emma: "I love you, Dexter. I just don't like you anymore."
Dexter is a total a** at times, and loving him (even as a friend) can certainly be a challenge. It's one that Emma rises to, however. She's not afraid to call him out when he deserves it.
Dexter: "Come on, everyone's lost at 25."
Everyone, except Dex, as Emma astutely points out. Dexter rockets to the top right out of college, while Emma flounders for many years.
Dexter: "Emma and I are just good friends."
Alison: "You sure about that?"
Dexter: "Anyway, she's not my type."
Alison: "Which is exactly why I like her."
It's always great when Patricia Clarkson shows up in a movie - any movie. In 'One Day,' she plays Dex's mother, Alison.
