Favorite Kiss!

Okay, did you get to see this show that aired earlier this week?  The Greatest Movies of Our Time
I have to admit that I'm a movie nut. Really. I can't get enough of great films, they're like my writing muses for some reason. I guess it's because they are so inspiring. You may not agree with the films and actors, etc. that were picked but the talent is incredible. If I weren't a writer I'd love to have been a film maker.

Gone With The Wind was voted best film of all time. No big surprise there. IF you had to pick your personal best film of all time and it can't be GWTW because it's already been picked :) what would you put at the top of the list?

The best line that was picked? "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn."

What I want to know from you is what is a line or a couple lines that you like in a book of fiction that you are reading now? And tell us who the author is too. Let's stay away from last lines so we don't spoil anyone's reading experience. Here's mine from Janet Evanovich's, Wicked Appetite: "Do you know what an unmentionable is?" 

What's your favorite movie kiss?  My pick is The Notebook.  A kiss in the rain is the most romantic thing ever, in my not so humble opinion.  It’s perpetual bliss as Faith Hill would say. :)

And remember that near kiss in Pride and Prejudice when Darcy had come after Elizabeth from the church in the rain?
You can see which kissses won here:   Best Kiss
Can you think of another one that you would choose?

I'm on deadline gang so I'm going to leave this post up until next Sunday. Lot's of fun to be had here so jump in and give us all your feed back.  I'll respond to comments off and on through the week. Have fun! And if you're interested I still have this post up over At The Write Charisma
Regency/Mad-Doctoring/Romance/and Medicine Have an awesome week!


  1. Omw! You have such fun posts!

    Okay, best line ever? From Notebook... When Noah and Abby are at the beach and Abby says "Say you're a bird" and Noah says "If you're a bird, I'm a bird." Bam. Right there. So dang romantic.

    Best line of a song? Making my own category here. lol. From Garth Brook's Lonesome Dove. "She looked down and her heart was gone." As a romance writer that just slams it home for me. Ugh.

    And then best kiss, I would agree with the Notebook and best near kiss heck yeah Pride and Prejudice. Mr. Darcy is hot! hmmm.

    Love this post. have a great week and good luck on deadline. hugs

  2. Good Morning Bonnie! Glad you like the posts. "If you're a bird, I'm a bird." Good one!

    And aren't you fun making up another category. Let's go for it folks. We'll add Bonnie's category in here too. Awesome line from Garth Brooks. And that reminds me. I'm a huge Brad Paisley fan. I know, Regency and Brad Paisley don't exactly meld together, but what the hey.

    My favorite song for my almost 30 years of married life is Brad's, "Then." This is the chorus. Notice how it expanded from the one liner?:)
    And now you're my whole life
    now you're my whole world
    I just can't believe the way I feel about you, girl
    Like a river meets the sea,
    stronger than it's ever been.
    We've come so far since that day
    And I thought I loved you then

    I call those kind of lyrics, Goosebump heaven.:)

    Thanks for playing Bonnie. Feel free to drop in anytime if you think of another.

  3. Jill, I must tell you that I just finished "Redeeming Love" by Francine Rivers. (I checked it out 'cause you listed it as an all-time favorite). Well, it was powerful and amazing. I absolutely loved it. Couldn't put it down. What a great allegory for God's love to us. I felt exuberant after reading it. Thanks for recommending! (Also thought it was cool that the sermon scripture today was from Hosea)

    Now, for my comments on your blog... my favorite all time movie of all time is the Sound of Music. It has everything - great music, great dancing, a heartwarming romance, suspense, great scenery... you name it! Even though I have watched it a hundred times, if it comes on TV I will sit down and watch it all over again. It is just that good.

    As for a favorite kiss - one of my recent favorites is from the BOOK (not the movie) in Twilight when Edward kisses Bella for the first time. "I was thinking there was something I wanted to try..." I think this kiss is so intense because of all the effort it takes for Edward to rein in his predatory nature and how intoxicated the resulting kiss makes Bella. She can't even walk straight afterward. That's the kind of kisses I like!

  4. Hi Lisa,
    Francine Rivers and Redeeming Love. Oh to be able to write as powerful as that. Awesome. So glad you read it. Now go read A Voice in the Wind.:)

    I think Sound of Music got best Musical if you go back and click on the link. I had an opportunity to go to Austria in 1997. When I came back and The Sound of Music came on, I sat there with the family saying, "I was there! Oh, and I was there too! And did you know the how this was made? etc." They couldn't wait for me to be quiet and just watch the movie.:)Now I'll have I am 16 going on 17 in my head all day.

    You're right! Edward and Bella, another great kiss.

    I'm headed to the Gathering tonight. Love the story of Hosea. Come visit later again this week, Lisa, if you get the chance. Meghan made it safely to YWAM. Yippee!

  5. Oh I stink at this but my fav movie is You've got mail where at the end she says something like I hoped it would be you:))

  6. Hey Terri,
    I love You've Got Mail. When it first came out in DVD I bought it and watched it a million times. My favorite part in the movie was when Tom Hanks was taking all the caviar off a plate at the party and Meg Ryan found out he was Joe Fox and picked up a knife to slice the turkey and Greg Kinnear comes by and takes the knife out of her hand. Love it! You've got good taste! :)
