My girlfriend was watching it on TBS and I got sucked in. Also, I'm a huge softee.
  1. The Opening Credits
    550b40e1 161c 481c a014 b27859b1c20c
    I just forgot what a good movie this is and now I remembered.
  2. The Kid Calls In
    492161c8 5fc8 466f 94d8 112d98b3cf69
    Jonah! Tom Hanks is mad, but only a little. Then he realizes how much his son cares about him. How could you not love this!
  3. When Meg Ryan stops at the diner and everyone points at the radio to turn it up at the same time.
    C15c6bbb 1577 4394 8e8f 859792dbde40
    I love it when everyone is on the same page. I cry during the opening ceremony at the Olympics for the same reason.
  4. When Meg hears Tom talk about his wife...
    A2d5fe98 071a 4bee 8e32 e548fed037b8
    "Well, how long is your program?" "I knew it the first time I touched her... It was like coming home." "Then after a while I won't have to remind myself to get out of bed every morning and breath in and out."
  5. This establishing shot
    87b793d6 37ea 424a a01c b94b93031ae1
    Okay, I know. But, it's more than that. It's right after he gets off the radio and Jonah falls asleep in his lap. A boat passes their awesome waterfront house and we stay on the shot long enough to watch it cross the whole screen. Why? SETTING UP A MOTIF, BABY! They're going to be passing each other like ships in the night.... Just like this literal ship in the night.
  6. Carrying his kid up to bed after watching New Year's on TV
    0abed7d7 2693 4fa8 9bd1 64256929d48f
    He's such a good Dad. What? Are we all supposed to love him?
  7. They replay the radio part??
    0625555e 358f 48ef a884 41c5a83fc8ef
    Meg Ryan gets out of bed and turns on the radio and GUESS WHAT? They're playing a "best of Dr. Marcia" and we have to hear Hanks talk about how much he loves his wife again. AGAIN? WTF Ephron? That's cheating! (Also side note: Bill Pullman plays Meg's overly allergic milquetoast fiancé; if cast today this part would be played by Zach Woods)
  8. When Meg Ryan looks up Hanks
    1d9db151 fa81 458b ba9b a7467eea07a0
    Okay, this part didn't make me cry, but I forgot about what a fucking creep Meg is in this scene. Yes, technically she's a journalist -- but we all know she's not listening to her lady boner to chase a Pulitzer.
  9. The airport
    A4e7f7c3 6328 463f a8e4 8c031c00057b
    Hanks is literally saying "there's no such thing as a perfect..." And then she gets off the plane. Total strangers! Coincidence! Ships in the night!
  10. "And all I could say was hello"
    638fac6a 7872 48a5 ab8d d1a16a8c2dbf
    When they make contact for the first time and Meg Ryan almost gets hit by a taxi and all she could say was hello and then she tells Rosie and Its just like An Affair To Remember which JUST HAPPENS TO BE PLAYING ON THE TV BECAUSE GOD DAMNIT NORA EPHRON HOW DO YOU KNOW HOW TO BREAK ME SO GOOS
  11. "This is the one I like!"
    5030da59 e922 48a5 93b7 4068f180ceda
    Jonah knows that Annie is perfect for his dad and they have a fight and then he runs away.
  12. Hanks fights for a cab
    7ce8af30 57e5 44e1 b140 8ed63e82af76
    I wish I could explain why this made me tear up. I think it's just the anticipation of the big finish at this point. They're all in New York. Jonah is alone on the observation deck; Meg and Pullman are at dinner with a perfect view of the Empire State Building and she "has to tell him something." All the dominoes are lined up.
  13. "It's a sign."
    Befbe084 0018 4303 be44 f6b449bc7fcc
  14. "What if I couldn't get to you?"
    275f1d8f 18a0 4723 a7fd 66ff5f5513e8
  15. "Sorry ma'am, you're too late."
    A2b348ed 8fa5 469d 89b4 014dbd4dd2a6
    But then he lets her anyway because "Cary Grant, right? It's my wife's favorite movie."
  16. Oh fuck! I forgot they miss each other in the elevators!
    8bd528a9 9418 4016 8a67 aee68fcec3c1
  17. Also, this is the Stan Lee cameo all you Marvel fans have been waiting for.
    3298b5a6 ca7a 45b8 9199 50740e2feef0
  18. Oh fuck.
    4a1c7813 a4c1 4423 88c9 5fbf14436f18
  19. Oh fuck.
    0d693cd5 5bcb 4af0 b36b 383a91c812b1
  20. Oh fuck!
    651dce77 4f11 4a5f a276 944090e30428
  21. "It's you."
    Ce892bd1 da21 4aa0 bf87 8f3d8ee2eade
  22. "We better go."
    F45e38c9 c4cb 4b3b 9bc9 bfd35595d137
  23. Hell yes.
    1583de51 f744 493d 903a b6c774291039
  24. Yes yes yes
    Ff7469ef baf9 4ee7 8154 2f4ea227b8f1
  25. They did it! We did it!
    3428fc6e 403d 46e6 ab27 cefd62b47f74
  26. Oh man oh man this was a wild ride.
