Quotes and pictures of video extract from Love Story movie
What makes you so sure I went to prep school?
JENNIFER: You look stupid and rich.
OLIVER: Actually, I'm smart and poor.
JENNIFER: I'm smart and poor.
OLIVER: What makes you so smart?
JENNIFER: I wouldn't go for coffee with you.
OLIVER: Well, I wouldn't ask you.
JENNIFER: Well, that's what makes you stupid.
OLIVER: Hello, Jen? What would you say if
I told you I think I'm in love with you?.
Never say love if you don't really mean it.
OLIVER: What makes you think I don't mean it?
JENNIFER: You're a known quantity, Barrett.
JENNIFER: You're known for quantity. I mean at Radcliffe, every hall is Barrett Hall.
OLIVER: You've been checking up on me, haven't you?
JENNIFER: I don't dine outdoors with just anybody.
OLIVER: Am I just anybody?
JENNIFER: What do you think, preppie?
OLIVER: I'm not watching you study. I'm studying.
JENNIFER: Bullshit. You're looking at my legs.
OLIVER: Listen, Cavalleri, you're not that great-looking.
JENNIFER: I know, but can I help it if you think so?
OLIVER: Let's change the subject, huh?
JENNIFER: I wasn't aware that there was a subject.
OLIVER: You're under the mistaken impression that
I wanted to make love to you.
JENNIFER: Was I?
OLIVER: But I'm not interested. Definitely. Not interested.
JENNIFER: Good. At least we've got one thing in common.
OLIVER: It's amazing.
OLIVER: I'm studying. I'm really studying.
JENNIFER: I'm studying.
OLIVER: Sorry. Sorry.
JENNIFER: I love you.
JENNIFER: You're driving like a maniac.
OLIVER: This is Boston. Everybody drives like a maniac.
JENNIFER: You're gonna kill us before your parents can murder us.
my parents are gonna fall in love with you.
JENNIFER: Even the son of a bitch?
OLIVER: Of course. Absolutely.
JENNIFER: You really like to bug your father, don't you?
OLIVER: The feeling's mutual, or haven't you noticed?
JENNIFER: I mean, I didn't think you'd stop at anything just to get to your old man.
OLIVER: It's impossible to get to Oliver Barrett III.
JENNIFER: Unless maybe if you marry Jennifer Cavalleri?
OLIVER: Is that what you think?
JENNIFER: Yes, I think it's part of it.
OLIVER: Jenny, you don't believe I love you?
JENNIFER: Yes, but in a crazy sort of way,
I think you also love my negative social status.
JENNIFER: Listen, I can't pass judgment, Oliver. I just think so. I mean,
I know that I love not only you, but your name and your numeral.
After all, it's part of what you are.
OLIVER: Oh, how can you do it?
OLIVER: How can you see me and still love me?
JENNIFER: That's what it's about, preppie.
JENNIFER: When our two souls stand up erect and strong, face to face, silent, drawing nigh and nigher, until the lengthening wings break into fire at either curved point what bitter wrong can the earth do to us that we should not long be here contented? Think. In mounting higher, the angels would press on us and aspire to drop some golden orb of perfect song into our deep, dear silence. Let us stay, rather, on earth beloved, where the unfit, contrarious moods of men recoil away and isolate pure spirits, and permit a place to stand and love in for a day, with darkness and the death-hour rounding it.
OLIVER: I give you my hand,
I give you my love more precious than money.
I give you myself, before preaching or law. Will you give me yourself? Will you come travel with me? Shall we stick by each other as long as we live? I, Oliver Barrett, take you, Jennifer Cavalleri, to be my wedded wife from this day forward to love and to cherish, till death do us part.
JENNIFER: I, Jennifer Cavalleri, take you, Oliver Barrett, as my wedded husband,
from this day forward, to love and to cherish, till death do us part.
Your father loves you too,
Oliver, just the way you're gonna love Bozo, but you Barretts are so goddamn proud and competitive that you'll go through your whole life thinking you hate each other.
OLIVER: If it weren't for you!
OLIVER: The case is closed!
JENNIFER: Mr. Barrett, Oliver would like you to know that
in his own special way he loves you very much.
OLIVER: Just get the hell out of my life!
JENNIFER: I forgot my key.
OLIVER: Jenny, I'm sorry.
Love means never having to say you're sorry.
JENNIFER: Not for me. I love watching you dodge and weave.
OLIVER: The old hockey fake-out.
JENNIFER: I know, that's you all right, the old hockey fake-out.
OLIVER: Can we get a cup of hot chocolate?
JENNIFER: Sure. I'll even pay.
OLIVER: Very gracious of you.
JENNIFER: I told you I liked it best when I supported you.
OLIVER: What can you say about a 25-year-old girl who died? That she was beautiful and brilliant? That she loved Mozart and Bach? The Beatles? And me?

A very touching scene was when from her hospital bed, Jenny tells Oliver to not blame himself, insisting that he never held her back from music and it was worth it for the love they shared. Old fashioned lights out of Boston's long past from places like Beacon Hill were added to scenes in Harvard Yard to make it look more like the producer's image of Harvard.. Ryan O'Neal tripped over th he chain holding them in line ruining some takers.
The main song of the film by Francis Lai was a major success, particularly the vocal rendition recorded by Andy Williams. The lyrics of "(Where Do I Begin) Love Story" by Carl Sigman (were added after the theme music became popular): Where do I begin / To tell the story of how great a love can be / The sweet love story that is older than the sea / The simple truth about the love she brings to me / Where do I start / With her first hello / She gave new meaning to this empty world of mine / There'd never be another love, another time / She came into my life and made the living fine / She fills my heart / She fills my heart with very special things / With angels' songs, with wild imaginings / She fills my soul with so much love / That anywhere I go I'm never lonely / With her around, who could be lonely / I reach for her hand, it's always there / How long does it last / Can love be measured by the hours in a day / I have no answers now but this much I can say / I know I'll need her 'till the stars all burn away / And she'll be there / How long does it last / Can love be measured by the hours in a day / I have no answers now but this much I can say / I know I'll need her 'till the stars all burn away / And she'll be there
Love Story was nominated for seven Golden Globe Awards, winning five: Best Motion Picture (Drama); Best Director (Arthur Hiller); Best Actress in a Drama (Ali MacGraw); Best Screenplay (Erich Segal); Best Original Score (Francis Lai); also nominated for: Best Actor in a Drama (Ryan O'Neal); Best Supporting Actor (John Marley).
John Wayne refused to believe that Love Story (1970) "sold because the girl went around saying 'shit' all the way through it." Instead he believed that "the American public wanted to see a little romantic story." Oliver's car in the film was an MG TC Midget, a British car produced by the MG Company from 1945 to 1949. Oliver's father drives an E-type Jaguar.
