This Saturday, it was me, pop corns and Will Smith. Okay, not really really Will Smith but Hitch, his block buster from more than half a decade ago.

About the movie (from WiKi):

Hitch is a 2005 romantic comedy film directed by Andy Tennant and starring Will Smith. The film, which was written by Kevin Bisch, co-stars Eva Mendes, Kevin James, and Amber Valletta.
Synopsis:
While helping his latest client woo the fine lady of his dreams, a professional “date doctor” finds that his game doesn’t quite work on the gossip columnist with whom he’s smitten.

Well, so here are some of my favorite dialogues from the romance-comedy flick, called “Hitch”:

A way of life:

“Life is not the amount of breaths you take, it’s the moments that take your breath away…”

Never, never, never:

“Never lie, steal, cheat, or drink. But if you must lie, lie in the arms of the one you love. If you must steal, steal away from bad company. If you must cheat, cheat death. And if you must drink, drink in the moments that take your breath away…”

Cynic bullshit:

“Relationships are for people who are just waiting for something better to come along…”

Once, only once, do you get lucky:

“One dance, one look, one kiss, that’s all we get, Albert. Just *one shot* to make the difference between happily-ever-after, and oh-he’s-just-some-guy-I-went-to-some-thing-with-once…”

That’s the mystery:

So how does it happen, great love? Nobody knows… but what I can tell you is that it happens in the blink of an eye. One moment you’re enjoying your life, and the next you’re wondering how you ever lived without them…”

Right out of horse’s mouth:

“I’m a guy. Since when do we get anything right the first time?”

A precious piece of advice for the newbies in the dating game:

“When your wondering what to say, or how you look… just remember… she is already out with you. That means, she said yes, when she could’ve said no. That means she made a plan… when she could’ve just blown you off. So that means it is no longer you job to make her like you… It’s is your job NOT TO MESS IT UP”

He is right girls – we must take it easy:

“Does it ever occur to women that maybe a guy might like to have a plan, you know, because he’s nervous? He’s not sure that he could just walk up to you and you’d respond if he said “I like you.” “I like you.” “I like you!”

And this is how it all begins:

Basic principles: no woman wakes up saying, “God, I hope I don’t get swept off my feet today!” Now, she might say, “This is a really bad time for me,” or something like, “I just need some space,” or my personal favorite, “I’m really into my career right now.” You believe that? Neither does she. You know why? Because she’s lying to you, that’s why. You understand me? Lying! It’s not a bad time for her. She doesn’t need any space. And she may be into her career, but what she’s really saying is, “Uh, get away from me now,” or possibly, “Try harder, stupid.” But which one is it? Sixty percent of all human communication is nonverbal, body language; thirty percent is your tone. So that means that ninety percent of what you’re saying ain’t coming out of your mouth. Of course she’s going to lie to you! She’s a nice person. She doesn’t want to hurt your feelings. What else she going to say? She doesn’t even know you… yet. Luckily, the fact is that just like the rest of us, even a beautiful woman doesn’t know what she wants until she sees it, and that’s where I come in. My job is to open her eyes. Basic principles: no matter what, no matter when, no matter who… any man has a chance to sweep any woman off her feet. He just needs the right broom.”
