Our Hearts Belong to These Four Weddings and a Funeral Movie Quotes

I have never been the biggest fan of romantic comedies.

The older I got, the worse they sat with me. I was quickly able to see through their facade and realize that these kinds of relationships simply don't happen to girls like me. But there is one that never fails to make me believe in love. If you didn't guess it was Four Weddings and a Funeral, I'll try making it more obvious next time.

American rom-coms simply aren't the tea, but the Brits know what they're doing. This one had heart, tears, weddings, and funerals, which is basically what all movies of this genre should feature.

Now that Mindy Kaling's Hulu miniseries of the movie has hit the streaming platform, everyone has been discussing the film more and more—which is something I'm quite fond of. It is severely underrated, in terms of the other rom-coms people obsess over. It's no The Notebook, it's even better. Some have dared to even call it perfect, and I couldn't agree more.

Whether you've seen it a thousand times, once, or not at all, you'll appreciate these sweet quotes from Four Weddings and a Funeral. Grab a box of tissues and get to reading them now!

Best Four Weddings and a Funeral Quotes

Romantic Four Weddings and a Funeral Quotes

  • "I always just hoped that, that I'd meet some nice, friendly girl, like the look of her, hope the look of me didn't make her physically sick, then pop the question and, um, settle down and be happy. It worked for my parents. Well, apart from the divorce and all that." -Tom

Famous Four Weddings and a Funeral Quotes

  • "Gareth used to prefer funerals to weddings. He said it was easier to get enthusiastic about a ceremony one had an outside chance of eventually being involved in. In order to prepare this speech, I rang a few people, to get a general picture of how Gareth was regarded by those who met him. Fat seems to be a word people most connected with him. Terribly rude also rang a lot of bells. So very fat and very rude seems to have been a stranger's viewpoint. On the other hand, some of you have been kind enough to ring me to tell me that you loved him, which I know he'd be thrilled to hear. You remember his fabulous hospitality... his strange experimental cooking. The recipe for 'Duck à la Banana' fortunately goes with him to his grave. Most of all, you tell me of his enormous capacity for joy. When joyful, when joyful for highly vocal drunkenness. But joyful is how I hope you'll remember him. Not stuck in a box in a church. Pick your favorite of his waistcoats and remember him that way. The most splendid, replete, big-hearted, weak-hearted as it turned out, and jolly bugger most of us ever met. As for me, you may ask how I'll remember him, what I thought of him. Unfortunately there I don't have words. Perhaps you will forgive me if I turn from my own feelings to the words of another splendid bugger: W.H. Auden. This is actually what I want to say: 'Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone. Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone. Silence the pianos and with muffled drum, Bring out the coffin... let the mourners come. Let aeroplanes circle, moaning overhead, Scribbling on the sky the message: He is Dead. Put crepe bows 'round the necks of public doves, Let traffic policemen wear black, cotton gloves. He was my North, my South, my East, my West. My working week and my Sunday rest. My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song, I thought love would last forever: I was wrong. The stars are not wanted now, put out every one. Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun. Pour out the ocean and sweep up the wood, For nothing now can ever come to any good.'" -Matthew

  • "I think we both missed a great opportunity here." -Carrie

  • "Let me ask you one thing—do you think, after we've dried off, after we've spend lots more time together, you might agree not to marry me? And do you think not being married to me might maybe be something you could consider doing for the rest of your life?" -Charles

  • "Is it still raining? I hadn't noticed." -Carrie

  • "There I was, standing there in the church, and for the first time in my whole life I realized I totally and utterly loved one person. And it wasn't the person next to me in the veil. It's the person standing opposite me now... in the rain." -Charles
