One Day Movie Quotes

The movie adaptation of 'One Day' features some great, memorable quotes. Some of the best 'One Day' movie quotes involve quips made by Emma Morley (Anne Hathaway) and Dexter Mayhew (Jim Sturgess), as they try to navigate life and each other. 'One Day' is an adaptation of the best-selling novel by David Nicholls. It follows the lives of Emma and Dex for 20 years, offering a snapshot of one day each year. Sometimes they're together as friends, sometimes they're not. If you've read the book, well, you know: This is a romance of the epic variety, but it's also gut-wrenching (we're keeping this spoiler-free). Enjoy these quotes from 'One Day,' and if you know of any we missed, feel free to add them to the list!

'One Day' was not well-reviewed by many of the top movie critics. Bad reviews might have hurt the film at the box office: 'One Day' opened to a dismal $5 million in it's opening weekend of release. The movie went on to gross more than $13 million in U.S. ticket sales. It was released on DVD on November 29, 2011.

    A Fine Thing

    Emma: "Hey, there. Just to say I'm running late but I'm on my way and I'm sorry for being so snappy this morning. Just wanted to say you're a fine thing Dexter Mayhew. I love you very much. Okay, there you go, lucky you."

    Dexter Mayhew has come a long way over the course of his friendship with Emma. He's gone from rich playboy loving husband. Unfortunately, things don't always work out, no matter how good they're going. Nothing good is ever easy.

    Nothing Good Was Ever Easy

    Emma: "London's swallowed me up. I thought I'd make a difference, but no one knows I'm here."
    Dexter: "Listen, listen. Nothing truly good was ever easy."

    Emma is struggling to make it in London - and not doing very well. Dexter, in turn, is teaching in Paris, sleeping with his students, and generally being...Dexter. But his advice to Emma is spot on. Nothing good is easy - and that includes Dexter and Emma's relationship.

    Walk You Home

    Dexter: "We've never actually met."
    Emma: "Emma Morley."
    Dexter: "I'll walk you home..."

    Ah, the fateful first meeting. Little do they know...

    You Cured Me of You

    Emma: "When we were at University...I had a crush on you."
    Dexter: "So what happened?"
    Emma: "I got to know you, you cured me of you."

    Emma pretty much tells it like it is, which is one reason why Dex is so drawn to her. Dex really can be a bit of a tool (understatement) at times, and once Emma really gets to know him, she's not nearly as taken with him as she once was...or is she?
