This is a Stock Phrase used at the closing of series/film/work/franchise, where you had to fight tooth and nail to Earn Your Happy Ending. Usually this trope is quoted at the summit of a spectacular view, overlooking the metropolis in question to the glow of a brilliant golden sunset/sunrise. The hero/heroine muses over the journey that took the cast from the begining to their final triumph; all the laughter, tears, joys and heartaches. And with a warm smile says/muses/shouts: "I Love This Town!" as a summation of joy and satisfaction for the adventure he or she just had. Almost never used ironically, this trope is invariably a Crowning Moment of Heartwarming that closes off the current chapter in a saga. Not to be confused with the Bon Jovi song of the same-name. See also Man of the City, for the character most likely to come to this conclusion.
