"He will always be able to play the 'friend' card with you. He only has to be responsible for the expectations of a friend, rather than the far greater expectations of a boyfriend. After all, being a 'pal,' you wouldn't want to put him through any more emotional turmoil while he's going through his 'very traumatic breakup.' he's got the ultimate situation: a great friend with all the benefis of a girlfriend, whom he can see or not see whenever he wants to." - He's just not that into you by by Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo
"I looked at you tonight and, it was like you came completely out of your shell. There was like this total new found confidence that just seemed to burst from you and I know what it must have taken for you to get up and do that tonight and God.. look at you.. Its like you transformed into this beautiful.. God.. I mean I'm sitting here with my best friend and my palms are sweaty. I've known you forever but I feel like I'm seeing you for the first time tonight." - Dawson's Creek
"You're my best friend.. I'm not supposed to fall for you... You've always been there for me, a shoulder to cry on when a boy broke my heart. Always there telling me everything would be alright. But now.. now when I see you... my heart skips a beat. And I wanna run up to you and give you a hug and a kiss and tell you I love you.. and I would.. if you weren't holding her hand." - Emily
"I don't know. I mean, I want to be his friend. But then again, I don't. You know? I mean how can you simply be friends with someone when every time you look at them, you're thinking about how much more you really want?"
"Why is it that you can be my best friend, and I can tell you anything except the fact that I've loved you forever, in more then one way. I know we're meant to be together, just not right now.. hopefully soon though, because I can't imagine my life without you in it."
"I saw you with her today and as I watched with my fake smile I could hear my heart break and I could feel it being torn apart. Because it was then that I realized that I am truly a friend and that's all I'll ever be."
