Young Allie: "Stay with you? What for? Look at us, we're already fightin'."
Young Noah: "Well that's what we do, we fight... You tell me when I am being an arrogant son of a bitch and I tell you when you are a pain in the ass. Which you are, 99% of the time. I'm not afraid to hurt your feelings. You have like a 2 second rebound rate, then you're back doing the next pain-in-the-ass thing."
Young Allie: "So what?"
Young Noah: "So it's not gonna be easy. It's gonna be really hard. We're gonna have to work at this every day, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, for ever, you and me, every day. Will you do something for me, please? Just picture your life for me? 30 years from now, 40 years from now? What's it look like? If it's with him, go. Go! I lost you once, I think I can do it again. If I thought that's what you really wanted. But don't you take the easy way out."

Noah pushes Allie hard, and of course, the high-spirited Allie pushes right back, even harder. But Noah has a point here: He and Allie compliment each other, fighting or not. And he's clearly laying it all out here - asking her to envision her life without him, if she can.

Young Allie: "Why didn't you write me? Why? It wasn't over for me, I waited for you for seven years. But now it's too late."
Young Noah: "I wrote you 365 letters. I wrote you everyday for a year."
Young Allie: "You wrote me?"
Young Noah: "Yes... it wasn't over, it still isn't over."

No, it's definitely not over. Poor Allie. Poor Noah. She never knew he wrote every single day? Evil mother, EVIL!

Noah: "I am nothing special; just a common man with common thoughts, and I've led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten. But in one respect I have succeeded as gloriously as anyone who's ever lived: I've loved another with all my heart and soul; and to me, this has always been enough."

Grab the Kleenex, people, because this movie is chock full of these sorts of sentiments. And true ones. For those lucky enough to find true love, you know: Living a life together with that person and loving them completely is a thing to be proud of.

Young Allie: "Now say you're a bird too."
Young Noah: "If you're a bird, I'm a bird."

Ah, young love. Allie is frolicking at the beach with her Noah, and their budding relationship is reaching full bloom. Noah is enthralled by her free spirited nature - her imagination, her carefree attitude and her dreams of being truly free (as a bird, get it?)
