Girl Patient: My mom's last boyfriend was bald. He was nice, but she didn't marry him.
Girl Patient: There's always something better coming around the corner. That's what she says.
Kate: If she's not careful, she can spend her whole life waiting.
Alex: He could build a house. But he couldn't build a home.
Kate: One man I can never meet. Him, I would like to give my whole heart to.
Kate: I have to learn to live the life that I have got. Please don't write anymore. Don't try to find me. Let me let you go.
Kate: It's nice. It's safe.
Anna Klyczynski: Christ, he's in prison, isn't he? You're one of those women, aren't you?
Kate: He's not my boyfriend.
Alex: What is he, then? Your brother?
Kate: Oh, we have a comedian! What, did you eat clown for breakfast?
Alex: Wonderful. Our first fight.
Kate: It's kind of a long distance relationship.
Kate: It was you. Why didn't you tell me?
Alex: You would've thought I was crazy or drunk. Or both.
Kate: Now, tell me did you or did you not write each other?
Kate's Mother: To your father?
Kate: No, Clark Gable.
Anna Klyczynski: What's his name?
Anna Klyczynski: Morgan...mmm...that's a sexy name.
Kate: I sometimes feel as if I'm invisible, as if no one can see me at all. I never felt that way when I lived at the Lake House.
Alex: You've got some nice pieces here.
Simon Wyler: Oh, yeah. Music's fine, music helps. It's like Nietzche says... Life would be.
Alex: Senseless with music.
Alex: Pick a place. I'll be there, I promise.
Kate: Even though this is impossible, it's amazing.
Hostess: And when were you hoping to dine with us?
Alex: Two years from tomorrow.
Hostess: Two years from tomorrow?
Hostess: Two years?
Alex: From tomorrow.
Kate: I miss the Lake House. And its trees.
Alex: She's more real to me than anything I've ever known.
Kate: Can this be happening?
Kate: Life is not a book, Alex. And it can be over in a second. I was having lunch with my mother at Daley Plaza and a man was killed right in front of me. He died in my arms. And I thought, "It can't end just like that on Valentine's Day." And I thought about all the people who love him, waiting at home, who will never see him again. And then I thought, "What if there is no one? What if you live your whole life and no one is waiting?"
