Allie: Did you write that?
Duke: No, that was Walt Whitman.
Allie: I think I knew him...
Duke: I think you did too.

Allie: Do you think our love can make miracles?
Duke: I do.

Duke: I was just going for a walk. I couldn't sleep.
Nurse Esther: You were going to see Miss Allie. Now you know you're not allowed. It's against the rules. You go back to your room. And as for me, I'm going downstairs to get a cup of coffee and won't be back for a while. Stay out of trouble.

Duke: How's it hangin' Harry?
Harry: I keep trying to die, but they won't let me.
Duke: Well, you can't have everything.

That's my sweetheart in there. Wherever she is, that's where my home is.
