It's almost the weekend! Skip Stranger Things on Friday night (girrrl you've been at it for four hours straight now) and show Philippine cinema some love by watching these memorable films. We've listed down the Pinoy movie lines that are guaranteed to stick with you long after the closing credits.

"She loved me at my worst. You had me at my best, but binalewala mo lang ang lahat... And you chose to break my heart." —John Lloyd Cruz, One More Chance (2007)

We know you've watched this tearjerker a thousand times but it just never gets old, does it? It doesn't even matter anymore if you identify with Basha or with Popoy; this film will always hit close to home.  

"I will fall asleep beside you and hope we dream the same dream. I will wrap my arms around you and listen to the silence of two heartbeats." —Benjamin Alves, Sana Dati (2013)

Sana Dati is one of those films that will break your heart only to make it whole again. It is a must-watch for anyone who has ever found love—and lost the same love.

"Kasi 'yung ganyang kalaking pagmamahal, ganyang overwhelming love, imposibleng walang pupuntahan eh. May mababalik sayong pagmamahal, not necessarily sa taong pinagbigyan mo, pero sigurado ako, mababalik 'yan sa 'yo." —JM De Guzman, That Thing Called Tadhana (2015)

Because there is no such thing as loving too much. Just love, fiercely and without a hint of fear because it will come back to you, it always does.


"Wala na tayong panahon sa mga bagay na hindi natin kayang panindigan." —Mylene Dizon, Heneral Luna (2015)

So make the most out of every opportunity; do your best every minute of every day and stay true to your word. Heneral Luna made it to our must-watch list because it reminds us of the things that actually matter in the world.

"Alam mo, kung pagod ka na, hindi mo naman kailangang umalis. Kailangan mo lang magpahinga." —Nonie Buencamino, Dagitab (2014)

This is just what you need to hear when life knocks the wind out of your sails and you feel like you're left with no more love to give. Rest if you must; take as much time as you need. You never really run out of love, especially for people who deserve it.


"I can never unlove you. I just love you in a different way now." —Piolo Pascual, Starting Over Again (2014)

Love that doesn't last forever stays with you. Starting Over Again will show you why parting ways is not the worst thing that could happen to you and your boyfriend.

"Huwag ka lang puro tanggap ng tanggap, mahal kita pero nakakapagod na!" —Sarah Geronimo, The Breakup Playlist (2015)

This car scene is an ode to everyone who loves without fear and hesitation—even at their own expense. It is also a reminder that it is okay to get tired sometimes; you are only human.

"Huwag mo 'kong paasahin na kaya mo akong mahalin kung hindi mo naman ako kayang panindigan. Masakit eh!" —Kathryn Bernardo, Crazy Beautiful You (2015)

Crazy Beautiful You is probably our favorite KathNiel movie because it is full of hard-hitting quotes like this one. *grabs a box of tissue*
