“loretta, i love you. not like they told you love is, and i didn’t know this either, but love don’t make things nice - it ruins everything. it breaks your heart. it makes things a mess. we aren’t here to make things perfect. the snowflakes are perfect. the stars are perfect. not us. not us! we are here to ruin ourselves and to break our hearts and love the wrong people and die. the storybooks are bullshit.” - moonstruck (1987)
- But that’s not Johnny’s fault. - I don’t care. I ain’t no freakin’ monument to justice. I LOST MY HAND! I LOST MY BRIDE! JOHNNY HAS HIS HAND! JOHNNY HAS HIS BRIDE! YOU WANT ME TO TAKE MY HEARTBREAK, PUT IT AWAY AND FORGET IT?!
