"I love you. I'm sorry."
Touma, to Taichi. Blue Flag

"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 before he leaves the Hidden Leaf Village, Naruto

"I look this, don't I? This is only part of it. If you knew the real me...I think you'd hate me a lot more....I wanted to get closer to you too. It actually made me...really happy. When you started talking to me on the stairs...what you told me at the pancake place...when you took my hand and stood up for me...the way you're talking to me face-to-face right now — all of it. I just wanted to make sure you knew that...I know you can't accept that I've grown a tail like this..."
Kuroe Akaishi, Kaiju Girl Caramelise

Isla: I… I… [takes a deep breath] When you told me about your feelings, I thought that I shouldn’t make any more memories! Because we’ll only get torn apart and it would only make our parting more painful. Because as the one left behind, you’d be the one getting hurt! For your sake, above all else, I… I decided that I should stay away from you. That’s what I decided. And yet… I tried to imagine it. [Isla begins to cry and tears fall on Tsukasa’s lap] I wondered… how you would remember me in the future. Probably cold, lonely, and sad… only that version of me. You wouldn’t have anything good left to remember me by. And that’s not… that’s not what I want! [The camera glances on the colleagues, some of whom are already crying]
Tsukasa: Isla… [Tsukasa reaches for Isla before she grabs his hand tightly[
Isla: What I want… is to make more memories with you! I want you to remember that I was here!!! Until the end! Until the end… I want to be with you, Tsukasa.
Tsukasa: Don’t worry. I’ll always be with you.
Isla: [beat] I’m in love with you… Tsukasa.

"I don't want to go back to the real world. Can't I go back to hell? I want to be together with you! Akira, I'll go anywhere as long as you're with me! I could go to heaven, or hell, or the ends of the universe! However! Akira, I can't go anywhere without you. Please Akira! Don't make me leave your side. [...] You really mean it?! The day I can meet you in the real world is coming? If that's the case I can go back to the real world. Farewell, my love."
Jun's final words to Akira Fudo note  as she leaves hell, Devilman Lady

Ran: Shinichi...You can't run away anymore. Explain to me what this is all about. SHINICHI!
Shinichi: [walks out of telephone booth] Explain what? I just happen to have come to London as well.
Agasa: [hiding] Hey, hey...Don't tell me he took the antidote meant for the return trip?
Ran: Then, why were you running?
Shinichi: That's because...I forgot to tell you I was coming to London...So I thought it'd be awkward...
Ran: Why didn't you tell me? You had plenty of chances, didn't you?
Shinichi: Well, that's...
Ran: Stupid...Stupid of me...I got excited over nothing I did so much research, and was worried to death about your stuff...Wasn't that stupid of me?! It's just like that person said. Love is 0...No matter how much you add to zero, you'll just lose miserably.
Shinichi: What are you talking about?
Ran: Minerva Glass-san said so!
Shinichi: Minerva Glass! You met the Grass Court Queen?
Ran: I did! At Baker Street! So what?!
Shinichi: At Baker Street? Then, was there a kid with her?
Ran: There was...She said he was her younger brother...
Shinichi: Did that kid say anything? Like if he came back because remembered anything? [Ran begins to cry]
Shinichi: Hey, calm down!
Ran: [crying] Calm down...? Don't you get it...? You're a detective aren't you? If you call yourself a detective, then why don't you try to deduce what's in my heart?! Idiot! [runs off]
Shinichi: Hey wait! [chases Ran] Ran! I said wait! Ran! [catches Ran's arm] Hey!!
Ran: No, let me go!
Shinichi: You're really troublesome!
Ran: Huh?
Shinichi: You're a troublesome and tough case, you know! With all these distracting emotions... Even if I were Holmes it'd still be impossible to figure out! The heart of a woman whom one likes... How can anyone accurately deduce that?

Peter Parker: I almost died tonight. And yeah, I get it, that happens a lot. But this felt...this felt different. And the truth is...if I am being honest, nothing has felt right for a long time. I think I know why. We've been through so much together. And I know that on my end at least, if you hadn't been there— I wouldn't have survived it. Because, yeah, I can do a lot of things. Swing from buildings, climb walls. All that stuff. But to do this? And do it right? I need you. I wish I had all the answers. I wish I knew how to make everything better and safer and easier and simpler — but I just— I just can't anymore. Maybe this is a mistake. I'm sorry. This isn't fair to you. Maybe I should—
Mary Jane Watson: Whoa, whoa. Easy, tiger— (kisses Peter). We're in this together, Pete. We've always have been.

Shinji: Damn you Asuka! Are you deaf! I love you! I! LOVE! YOU! Is it so hard to understand?! Is it so hard to believe?! I love you! I would have chosen Rei a long time ago if I didn't love you!
Asuka: You…? You do?
Shinji: YES! So cut that crap about being worthless! It's not true! You mean a lot to me! A lot! I care more about you than I care about myself!
The One I Love Is..., chapter 9

"I love you, du verdammt baka! Live or die, you're staying right by my side! Together! You promised!"
Asuka Langley Sohryu, A Crown of Stars

"Like what you see, Carol? If there's anything of Carol Ferris still left in you, and there has to be, I don't see how you could. Do you remember what you used to see in the mirror, Carol? The face of a compassionate woman? The woman who loved me, and whom I loved in return? I can remember, Carol. I think you can, too. If you can remember her, Carol, I want you to remember how she felt about me. How I felt about her, too. Because I still feel that way, Carol. I want you back. I want to take the real Carol Ferris back home with me, and make her my wife. Failing that... I at least want the real Star Sapphire to take over again. Not the woman I see before me, not somebody who could be a female Hitler, given enough time... but the woman who fought me, at times, but who was never evil. I'm not asking you to do this for me. Do it for the people you rule. And do it, more than anything, for yourself. Do it, Carol. Now."

Eowyn: My Lord Aragorn. I am to be sent to be with the women into the caves?
Aragorn: That is an honorable charge.
Eowyn: To mind the children? To find food and bedding for the men when they return? What renown is there in that?
Aragorn: [gently] My Lady, there may come a time for valor without renown. Who, then, will your people look to in their last defense?
Eowyn: ...Let me stand at your side.
Aragorn: It is not in my power to command it. [he starts to leave]
Eowyn: You do not command the others to stay! They fight beside you because they would not be parted from you! Because they love you! [Aragorn stops and turns to face her, stunned. Eowyn is mortified.] I am sorry. [She walks away]

Ryuuji: Taiga…?
Mr. Kuroma: Come on, let's get him over to…
Taiga: SHUT UP! You're all a bunch of idiots! You didn't even notice he was in trouble. You could have helped, but you didn't! You were all staring at that dumb bikini! You didn't even see him… [Taiga breaks into sobs] RYUUJI IS MIIIIIIIINE!!! KEEP YOUR DAMN HANDS OFFA HIM!

…Ryuuji? …oh, Kitamura. I thought you were Ryuuji. He's always the one… the one who…comes to my rescue. Sorry… I thought you were him.

Maya: [yelling and crying] He didn't kiss me! He tried to, okay, but I didn't let him! D'you know why? D'you want to know why? D'you really, really want to know why? This is why… [kisses his cheek] This is why… [kisses the corner of his lips] This is why… [kisses his mouth]
[They kiss for a minute]
Lochan: Maya, what the hell are we doing? I don't understand. Why—why the hell is this happening to us?
Maya: All I know right now is that I love you. I love you far more than just as a brother. I… I love you in—in every kind of way.
Lochan: I feel like that too… It's—it's a feeling so big, I sometimes think it's going to swallow me. It's so strong, I feel it could kill me. It keeps growing and I can't—I don't know what to do to stop it.

"I can listen no longer in silence. I must speak to you by such means as are within my reach. You pierce my soul. I am half agony, half hope."

"I thought love was something only idiots thought they felt, but this woman has a hold on my heart that I could not break if I wanted to. And there have been times that I wanted to! It has been...overwhelming, and humbling, and even painful at times. But I could not stop loving her any more than I could stop breathing. I am hopelessly, irretrievably in love with her. More than she knows."
Barney Stinson, How I Met Your Mother

"I love you! And I don't care that Philip's not my son. I will raise a hundred children with a hundred of your lovers if it means I can be with you!"

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"

Flemming: You're the woman he loves!
River: No, I'm not.
Flemming: She's lying!
River: The Doctor does not, and has never loved me. I'm not lying.
Hydroflax: [scans River] Confirmed. The lifeform is not lying.
Flemming: I-im-impossible! This is a trick!
River: No, it isn't.
Flemming: My information is correct! You are the woman who loves the Doctor!
River: Yes, I am. I never denied it. But whoever said that he loved me back? He's the Doctor. He doesn't going around falling in love with people! And if you think he's anything that small or that ordinary, then you haven't the first idea of what you're dealing with.
Flemming: Y-y-your Majesty, I assure you. She is the perfect bait. When this woman is in danger, the Doctor will always come.
River: Oh, you are a moron. No, he won't!
Flemming: He's probably already here!
River: No, he isn't! Of course he isn't!
Flemming: Possibly on this ship!
River: Well, go on! Scan it, then! Go on, why don't you?!
The Doctor: [who has been standing next to River, wearing a new face, the entire time] Uh, River...
River: Two hearts, stupid clothes? You can't miss him!
The Doctor: River...
River: Go on, scan the whole parsec! He's not here! God knows where he is right now, but I promise you he's doing whatever the hell he wants and not giving a damn about me! And I'm just fine with that! When you love the Doctor, it's like loving the stars themselves. You don't expect a sunset to admire you back! And if I happen to find myself in any danger, let me tell you... the Doctor isn't stupid enough or sentimental enough and he is certainly not in love enough to find himself standing in it with me...
[The Doctor finally succeeds in getting River's attention]
[River stops and stares at the Doctor for a brief moment, as he smiles back at her]
The Doctor: Hello, sweetie.
Doctor Who, "The Husbands of River Song"

Missandei: You leave tomorrow. Were you going to say goodbye?
Grey Worm: I will see you when I return.
Missandei: But you don't know when that will be.
Grey Worm: [shrugs] No one knows.
Missandei: [coldly] I wish you good fortune. [turns to leave]
Grey Worm: Missandei...It is hard for me to say goodbye to you.
Missandei: Why?
Grey Worm: You know why.
Missandei: I don't.
Grey Worm: [struggling with the words] You...You are my weakness...
Missandei: [hurt] That's what I am? Your weakness?
Grey Worm: When Unsullied are young, the Masters learn their fears. One boy is scared of dogs. One boy hates high places. One boy is frightened of the ocean. They make boy sleep with dogs, or climb a cliff. They throw him into the water. If he learns to swim, good. If he drowns, good. Either way, strong Unsullied. But I had no fears. I was never biggest. Never strongest. But I was bravest. Always.
Missandei: I believe it.
Grey Worm: Until I meet Missandei from the Isle of Naath. Now...I have fear...
Missandei: I do too.
Game of Thrones, "Stormborn"

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?
[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]'
Smallville, "Fever"

"Out of all the planets across the universe you decided to send your only son to this one, to Earth! You trusted us to protect him! Now please, Jor-El, I need you to trust me. I love your son!"
Chloe Sullivan, Smallville, "Traveler"

I snuck in through the garden gate
every night that summer just to seal my fate,
and I scream, "For whatever it's worth,
I love you. Ain't that the worst thing you ever heard?"

Richard: [reluctantly] …I… I screw up without you.
Nathan: What?
Richard: I screw up without you, okay!
Nathan: …you never said you needed me before.

What about love?
I never mentioned love
The timing's bad, I know
But perhaps if I made it more clear
That you belong right here
You wouldn't have to go

Ashley: I wish I could tell you... It's just not fair!
Chris: What? Tell me what?
Ashley: It's too late! Chris, what's the point?!
Chris: Stop it, just say...
Ashley: We're always talking around it, and now, I mean, we've wasted everything!
Chris: Ashley… none of it was wasted.
Ashley: ...What do you mean?
Chris: Every second that I spent with you was the only thing I ever wanted to do with my time.
Ashley: What are you saying, Chris?
Chris: I'm sorry… I should have told you how I felt.
Ashley: Chris...!

"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
