LOVE that movie. The best dialogue was in the very beginning when he was hitting on her in the library ...

Jennifer: You look rich and stupid.
Oliver: Well, what if I'm smart and poor?
Jennifer: I'M smart and poor.
Oliver: Well what makes you so smart?
Jennifer: I wouldn't go out for coffee with you, that's what.
Oliver: Well, what if I wasn't even gonna ask you to go out for coffee with me?
Jennifer: That's what makes you stupid.

This post means so much to me. My Daddy and I would watch this movie together a lot, when I was in High School. He loved picking out movies that he knew I would love and then we would sit in his office and have movie date nights. He loved to tell me that my Mommy looked like Ali McGraw. Now, when I watch it (with my Daniel and Bono Baby) I always cry too. But I cry because the movie is so touching and I miss my Daddy. I love thinking about those movie date nights. I am trying to collect every movie that I can remember watching with him.

love love,
Fritzi Marie

p.s. I love that your parents went to the Drive In to see this on their first date. So Romantic!
