Love Actually (2003)
Liam Neeson: Daniel
[deleted scene; Daniel and Sam are discussing Sam's true love]
Daniel : Option One: ask her out.
Sam : Impossible.
Daniel : Fair enough. Option Two: become her friend.
Sam : She's the most popular girl in school and she hates boys.
Daniel : Okay. Option Three: kidnap her and keep her tied up in your room until she agrees to marry you.
Sam : It's a route I've considered.
Daniel : And quite rightly rejected on the grounds of...
Sam : Hygiene.
Daniel : So what's the problem, Sammy-o? Is it just Mum, or is it something else? Maybe... school - are you being bullied? Or is it something worse? Can you give me any clues at all?
Sam : You really want to know?
Daniel : I really want to know.
Sam : Even though you won't be able to do anything to help?
Daniel : Even if that's the case, yeah.
Sam : Okay. Well, the truth is... actually... I'm in love.
Daniel : Sorry?
Sam : I know I should be thinking about Mum all the time, and I am. But the truth is, I'm in love and I was before she died, and there's nothing I can do about it.
Daniel : [laughs] Aren't you a bit young to be in love?
Sam : No.
Daniel : Oh, well, okay... right. Well, I mean, I'm a little relieved.
Sam : Why?
Daniel : Well, because I thought it would be something worse.
Sam : [incredulous] Worse than the total agony of being in love?
Daniel : Oh. No, you're right. Yeah, total agony.
Daniel : Tell her that you love her.
Sam : No way! Anyway, they fly tonight.
Daniel : Even better! Sam, you've got nothin' to lose, and you'll always regret it if you don't! I never told your mom enough. I should have told her everyday because she was perfect everyday. You've seen the films, kiddo. It ain't over 'til its over.
Sam : Okay, Dad. Let's do it. Let's go get the shit kicked out of us by love.
Sam : There's this big concert at the end of term, and Joanna's in it. And I thought, maybe if I was in the band, and played absolutely superbly, there's a chance that she might actually fall in love with me. What do you think?
Daniel : I think it's brilliant! I think it's stellar! Uh, apart from the one, obvious, tiny, little baby little hiccup...
Sam : That I don't play a musical instrument.
Daniel : Yessir.
Sam : A tiny, insignificant detail.
Daniel : So, let's go. We can definitely crack this. Remember, I was a kid once, too. So come on, it's someone at school, right?
Sam : Yeah.
Daniel : Aha, good, good. And what does she - he - feel about ya?
Sam : *She* doesn't even know my name. And even if she did, she'd despise me. She's the coolest girl in school and everyone worships her because she's heaven.
Daniel : Good. Good.
[sits on the couch next to Sam]
Daniel : Well...
Daniel : Basically, you're fucked, aren't you?
[at his wife's funeral]
Daniel : Jo and I had uh, a lot of time to prepare for this moment. Some of her, uh, requests - for instance, that I should bring Claudia Schiffer as my date to the funeral - I was confident she expected me to ignore.
[at his wife's funeral]
Daniel : When she first mentioned what's about to happen, I said, "Over my dead body." And she said, "No, Daniel, over mine... "
Sam : Daniel, I have a plan!
Daniel : Thank the Lord! Tell me.
Sam : Well, girls love musicians, don't they?
Daniel : Uh-huh.
Sam : Even the really weird ones get girlfriends.
Daniel : That's right. Meatloaf definitely got laid at least once. For God's sake, Ringo Starr married a Bond girl!
Sam : [looks at him strangely] Whatever.
Daniel : She's going to say her final words, not through me, but inevitably, and ever so coolly... through the immortal genius of the Bay City Rollers.
Sam : By the way, I feel bad. I never asked you how your love life is going.
Daniel : [mock chuckles] No. As you know, that was a done deal long ago. Unless, of course, Claudia Schiffer calls, in which case I want you out of the house straight away, you wee motherless mongrel.
Sam : Oh?
Daniel : No, no, we'll want to have sex in every room. Including yours.
Daniel : You've seen the films, kiddo. It ain't over 'til it's over.
Daniel : We need Kate, and we need Leo. And we need them now. Come on.
