You've Got Mail
Warner Bros.

When we truly love a movie, it's rare that we watch it only one time. Nope, we're the type of people that are unashamed to press play over and over again -- when showing it to our significant other, when we want to introduce it to our kids, revisiting it on a rainy day, on a sunny day, when we're feeling nostalgic. We always have a reason, because, truth be told, we don't really need one. These guilty pleasure movies (especially rom-coms) are also why we're so freaking excited to celebrate Valentine's Day. In the weeks leading up to February 14, we'll not only be tuning in to what is on the Hallmark Channel, but diving deep into classics like -- like When Harry Met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle, and Never Been Kissed.

At this point, on our 500th time watching, we're pretty sure we could be quizzed on this stuff and pass with flying colors. We're not only able to describe (in detail) major plot points, but list the names of minor characters, have insider knowledge of behind-the-scenes details, and point out the restaurants, hotels, and parks where iconic scenes were filmed.

(And don't even get us started with the quotes. We happen to know this dialogue by heart. Or do we?)

When taken out of context and paired with a completely different picture, those romantic one-liners, professions of love, and heartbreak speeches begin to sound similar. Sure, the line could easily fit with Love, Actually, but are we super sure it's not actually from 500 Days of Summer -- or You've Got Mail?

Those who love romantic comedies might want to put their own memory to the test, lining up some of the best rom-com quotes, ahead, with the appropriate film.

At the least, it'll be yet another excuse to check out these movies one more time.
