Great Moments In Movie Shelves #22

Joel: Hi.
Clementine: Hi. Didn't figure you'd show your face 
around me again. I guess I thought you were...
humiliated. You did run away, after all.
Joel: I just needed to see you.
Clementine: Yeah?
Joel: I'd like to, um... take you out, or something.
Clementine: You're married.
Joel: Not yet, not married. No, I'm not married.
Clementine: Look man, I'm telling you right off the bat, 
I'm high-maintainance, so... I'm not gonna tip-toe around 
your marriage, or whatever it is you've got goin' there. 
If you wanna be with me, you're with me.
Joel: Okay.
Clementine: Too many guys think I'm a concept, 
or I complete them, or I'm gonna make them alive. 
But I'm just a fucked-up girl who's lookin' for 
my own peace of mind; don't assign me yours.
Joel: I remember that speech really well.
Clementine: I had you pegged, didn't I?
Joel: You had the whole human race pegged.
Clementine: Hmm. Probably.
Joel: I still thought you were gonna 
save my life, even after that.
Clementine: Ohhh... I know.
Joel: It would be different, if we could just 
give it another go-round.
Clementine: Remember me.
Try your best; maybe we can.

Great. Break my heart and drag it through the mud, why don't ya? least you didn't post the "Meet Me In Montauk" scene.

This scene is my ultimate nightmare - the erasure of books in a bookstore. CHILLING.

But everything about this scene (and this film) is gorgeous.
