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.

Emma: "I love you, Dexter. I just don't like you anymore."

Dexter is a total a** at times, and loving him (even as a friend) can certainly be a challenge. It's one that Emma rises to, however. She's not afraid to call him out when he deserves it.

Not Someone, You

Dexter: "I need to speak to someone. Not someone - you."

When things go horribly wrong for Dexter, he automatically reaches out to Emma - even if they haven't talked for months. He may have a lot of casual flings (and one disastrous marriage), but he goes to the person that matters most when he needs real help (see: Emma).

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.
