I wanted it to be you... I wanted it to be you so BADLY

Kathleen Kelly: Sometimes I wonder about my life. I lead a small life. Well, not small, but valuable. And sometimes I wonder, do I do it because I like it, or because I haven't been brave? So much of what I see reminds me of something I read in a book, when shouldn't it be the other way around? I don't really want an answer. I just want to send this cosmic question out into the void. So good night, dear void.


Joe Fox: Sometimes I wonder...
Kathleen Kelly: What?
[they stop]
Joe Fox: If I hadn't been FoxBooks and you hadn't been the Shop Around the Corner... and you and I had, just you know, met... Yeah. I would have asked for your phone number and I wouldn't have been able to wait 24 hours before calling and asking, "How about coffee, drinks, dinner, a movie, for as long as we both shall live?"
Kathleen Kelly: Joe.
Joe Fox: And you and I would have never been at war. And the only things we would've fought about would be what video to rent on Saturday night.
Kathleen Kelly: Well, who fights about that?
Joe Fox: Well, some people. Not us.
Kathleen Kelly: We would never.
Joe Fox: ...if only.
Kathleen Kelly: I should go.
Joe Fox: Well let me ask you something. How can you forgive this guy for standing you up and not forgive me for this tiny little thing like putting you out of business.
[Kathleen shakes her head no]
Joe Fox: Oh how I wish you would.
Kathleen Kelly: I really have to go.
Joe Fox: Yeah, well, you don't wanna be late.


Kevin: I always take a relationship to the next level. If that works out, I take it to the next level after that, until I finally reach that level when it becomes absolutely necessary for me to leave.


Joe Fox: Who cares about Kathleen Kelly?
Kevin: Well... if you don't like Kathleen Kelly, I can tell you right now... you're not going to like this girl.
Joe Fox: Why?
Kevin: Because it *is* Kathleen Kelly.


Kathleen Kelly: What will NY152 say today I wonder. I turn on my computer. I wait impatiently as it connects. I go online, and my breath catches in my chest until I hear three little words: You've got mail. I hear nothing. Not even a sound on the streets of New York, just the beating of my own heart. I have mail. From you.


When was the Last time I wanted to be inside a movie? I can see this movie a few more hundred times and still enjoy it the same way i loved it the first time. 

You've Got Mail(1998)  is the one movie you never want to miss out from your DVD collection.

Lovely movie(that funny boy friend of hers is one of the 'craziest' movie characters) - You must see "Sleepless in Seattle" too. Same Tom Hanks-Meg Ryan combo and that is also a nice one.
