To Kill a Mockingbird, Harper Lee

"I turned to go home. Street lights winked down the street all the way to town. I had never seen our neighborhood from this angle. There were Miss Maudie's, Miss Stephanie's-there was our house, I could see the porch swing-Miss Rachel's house was beyond us, plainly visible. I could even see Mrs. Dubose's... Atticus was right. One time he said you never really know a man until you stand in his shoes and walk around in them. Just standing on the Radley porch was enough."

When Harry Met Sally, Nora Ephron

“I love that you get cold when it's 71 degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle above your nose when you're looking at me like I'm nuts. I love that after I spend the day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes. And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night. And it's not because I'm lonely, and it's not because it's New Year's Eve. I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.”

Much Ado About Nothing, William Shakespeare

“What fire is in mine ears? Can this be true?

Stand I condemned for pride and scorn so much?

Contempt, farewell, and maiden pride, adieu!

No glory lives behind the back of such.

And Benedick, love on; I will requite thee,

Taming my wild heart to thy loving hand.

If thou dost love, my kindness shall incite thee

To bind our loves up in a holy band.

For others say thou dost deserve, and I

Believe it better than reportingly.

EPIPHANIES

To Kill a Mockingbird – Scout has struggled to understand the way the world works, especially when it comes to ethics and understanding when rules can be bent. After Atticus covers up Boo Radley’s murder of Bob Ewell (done in order to save their lives), she finally realizes what Atticus has been teaching her. It relates to the central narrative by touching on Atticus’ words of advice in the beginning of the novel.

When Harry Met Sally – Harry and Sally have been friends for years, until they unexpectedly took their relationship further. It ended catastrophically, as did their friendship. In the end scene, Harry runs to find Sally at a New Years Eve party, having realized that he misses her not because she is his best friend, but because he is in love with her. It is the first time that either of them acknowledges the depth of their relationship and it finally brings them together for good.

Much Ado About Nothing – Beatrice and Benedick are rivals, until their friends convince them through intentional eavesdropping, that they love each other. Here, Beatrice realizes she has been abrasive and prideful. She vows to reward Benedick for his love and return his affections.
