23rd Oct: It's time for the second TV Tropes Halloween Avatar Contest, theme: cute monsters! Details and voting here.
Chloe: So yet in another classic maneuver to avoid emotional intimacy, I wrote my feelings down so that I could read them to you, thereby avoiding the embarrassing eye contact. (takes a deep breath and starts to read) I want to let you in on a little secret, Clark. I'm not who you think I am. In fact, my disguise is so thin, I'm surprised you haven't seen right through me. I'm the girl of your dreams masquerading as your best friend. Sometimes I want to rip off this façade like I did at the Spring Formal, but I can't because you'll get scared and run away again. So I decided that it's better to live with the lie than expose my true feelings. This is so much easier when you are unconscious. (tenderly caresses Clark's hair) My dad told me there are two types of girls: the ones you grow out of, and the ones you grow into. I really hope I'm the latter. (starts tearing up) I may not be the one you love today, but I'll let you go for now, hoping one day you'll fly back to me. Because I think you're worth the wait. (again, carefully strokes Clark's brow) Clark? (Clark smiles and stirs in his sleep)
Clark: (groans) Lana? (*Collective wince from viewers*) (A few seconds of blank shock, then a single tear slides down Chloe's cheek; she leaves in a hurry, with one final tearful glance from the door)

PASSIONATE PLEA! Whisper of repetition...
— Female Love Interest, A Trailer For Every Academy Award Winning Movie Ever
I kept remembering about that time, that time when you moved away... It's so oppressing, so painful. Just by thinking that you will disappear in front of me, the tears... come out... I don't want it, to be like this, to be like this... because I LOVE YOU !
—Hikari Hinomoto, Tokimeki Memorial 2
Santana: I wanted to thank you for performing that song with me in Glee-club. Because it made me do alot of thinking. And what I realized... is why I am such a bitch all the time. I'm a bitch because I am angry. I'm angry because I have all these feelings. Feelings for you... that I am afraid of dealing with. Because I am afraid of dealing with the consequences. I... I can't even go to a Indigo Girls concert, I just can't.
Brittany: I understand that.
Santana: ...Do you understand what I am trying to say here?
Brittany: ...No, not really.
Santana: I want to be with you. But... I am afraid of the talks, and the looks. I mean, you know what happened to Kurt at this school.
Brittany: But honey, If anyone was to ever make fun of you you would either kick their ass or slash them with your vicious, vicious words.
Santana: [Starts to cry] I know... I'm just so afraid of what everyone would say behind my back. Still I have to accept... that I love you. I love you, and I don't want to be with Sam, or Finn or any of those other guys. I just want you... please say you love me back!
— Glee, "Sexy"
Sakura: I... I love you with all my heart! If you were to stay with me…there would be no regrets. Because everyday, we’d do something fun. We’d be happy, I swear! Please, stay with me. I’ll even help you with your revenge. I don’t know what I could do but I’ll try my best to do something. So please, stay with me, or take me with you if you can’t stay here.
— Sakura: to Sasuke: as he is leaving the Hidden Leaf Village, Naruto
Richard: [reluctantly] ...I...I screw up without you.
Richard: I screw up without you, okay!
Nathan: ...You never said you needed me before.
