Noah

Allie: They fell in love, didn’t they?

Duke

Duke

Noah

Anne

Noah

The best love is the kind that awakens the soul, and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds. And that’s what you’ve given me.

Noah

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

Duke

Allie: Do you think our love can make miracles?

Duke: I do.
