Me Before You movie quotes tell the story of caregiver who forms a bond with a paralyzed man and both of their lives change forever as a result. The romantic drama was directed by Thea Sharrock using a screenplay Jojo Moyes adapted from her book of the same name. Me Before You opened in theaters in the United States on June 3, 2016.

In Me Before You, Louisa "Lou" Clark (Emilia Clarke) is a small town girl who can't seem to find a job that she can keep. Out of options, she agrees to take a recently opened position as a caregiver and companion to a recently paralyzed man. Lou soon learns that while the position is to care for affluent banker Will Traynor (Sam Claflin), Will is dealing with more than a physical condition. He's lost hope about his life in general.

On the urging of Will's parents (Janet McTeer and Charles Dance) and her family members (including Jenna Coleman, Brendan Coyle and Samantha Spiro), Lou tries to show Will all o the good things in life that he can still enjoy. The two form a romantic relationship and things appear to be moving in a positive direction but that comes into question when the six-month anniversary of his accident arrives, a time he agreed he would wait for before deciding if he will compassionately end his life or continue.

Me Before You is just one of several summer 2016 movies along with Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, Alice Through the Looking Glass and X-Men: Apocalypse.

Will: You would have never let those breasts so near to me if I wasn't in a wheelchair.
Lou: Yeah, well, you never would have been looking at these breasts if you hadn't been in a wheelchair.
Will: What? Of course I would have.

Will: Yes, but in my defense, I was an ass.
Lou: Yep!
Will: Do you know something, Clark? You are pretty much the only thing that makes me want to get up in the morning.

Will: Okay

Regardless if they would have met in their previous lives, something brought Lou and Will together and both of their lives have changed for the better. She makes him happy and this inspires her to push him further out of his comfort zone.
