Ally McBeal Unforgettable Quotes
“If you see me walking with someone else,
It's not because I like his company
It's because you're not brave enough to walk beside me…
If you hear me talking about him all the time,
It’s not because he pleases me,
It's because you're too deaf to hear my heartbeat…
If you feel me falling with someone new,
It's not because I love him,
It's because you're not there to catch me if I fall...
If you feel lost,
I too am nowhere,
I too don't know where the road is goin…"
Are we gonna cross each other's path,
or just completely turn around?
Will we just let go of what we had
or go to the place where love is bound…
Don't let me walk with him, it's you I want to walk with.
Don't let me fall for him, it's you I want to fall in love with.
When you thought I wasn't brave enough to walk beside you, I was behind you every step of the way.
When you thought I was too deaf to hear your heartbeat, I didn't want to assume anything. And I was afraid to lose our friendship.
When you thought I wasn't there to catch you, it was because you never gave me the chance."
It’s from Ally McBeal...
Who would forget the TV series Ally McBeal’s dancing baby, unisex bathroom, Fishisms, and other hilarious scenes…Ally McBeal is truly sweet, romantic, and very funny!
I was rather young when it aired so I have to indulge watching the DVD series for now. Anyway, I’ve compiled some of its lovely and clever quotes that you won’t forget…
"I like being a mess. It's who I am." – Ally
“Maybe I'm happy and I just don't know it.” – Ally
On Love and Relationship…
“There are some people who meet that somebody that they can never stop loving, no matter how hard they try. I wouldn't expect you to understand that, or even believe it, but trust me, there are some loves that don't go away. And maybe that makes them crazy, but we should all be lucky enough to end up with somebody who has a little of that insanity. Someone who never lets go. Someone who cherishes you forever." –Ally
"The truth for me [is that] our friendship is the greatest thing I got going. I cherish it. And to put an honesty boundary on it... I don’t want to. So free fall with the truth and hope we both survive." - Ally to Billy
“Maybe I'll share my life with somebody... maybe not. But the truth is, when I think back of my loneliest moments, there was usually somebody sitting there next to me.” – Ally
“The wrong ones can’t hurt you. It’s the right ones.” – Ally
“I did love you. Problem was you couldn't recognize it. Love is wasted on you because you'll always be unhappy, that's why I left. You may go through your good times, but we both know the place you'll always go back to. I couldn't have pulled you out of your world, you would have pulled me into yours." – Billy
“Time wounds all heals.” –Ally
On Life and Wants…
“You only die once!” – Ally
“I don't want what I want, and I want what I don't want, and to complicate it even more, I don't even know what I want or don't want!” – Ally
"The truth is, I probably don't want to be too happy or content, 'cause then what? I actually like the quest, the search. That's the fun. The more lost you are, the more you have to look forward to. What do you know? I'm having a great time and I don't even know it." – Ally
“We're not only wired to want what we can't have, but we're also wired to want what we really don't want.” –Ally
On Problems and Pain…
“Even if I did get past all my problems, I'm just gonna get out and get new ones.” – Ally
“Sometimes... there's no point in the truth if the only thing it will do is cause pain.” – Ally
On Being Beautiful…
“It's a problem being beautiful. It's only the handsome men that ask us out because they're the only ones who think they have a chance. And handsome men are dolts. Life is unfair to us. At some point we have to face the certain reality: despite all the good the world seems to offer, true happiness can only be found in one thing - shopping.” -Lucy Liu as Ling Woo
“Snow White. Cinderella. All about gettin' a guy. Being saved by the guy. Today it's the Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Pocahontas. All about gettin' a guy.” – Renee

"Men are like gum anyway. After you chew, they lose their flavor." – Ally
“It's nice to be nice. I believe in being nice, but sometimes you gotta dump them. Give this guy the bin.... You gotta give him a straight, hard dump. It's the only thing these bastards understand.” – Elaine
"This is the problem with playing games -- somebody has to lose." – Renee
One way or another they are true. Sometimes a bit, sometimes there’s more to it…It all depends on you…on how you face it…taste it…and chase it…After all, it’s your life, it’s your say…-- Fehl Dungo
