The Lake House (2006) Poster

Sandra Bullock: Kate Forster



  • Kate : One man I can never meet. Him, I would like to give my whole heart to.

  • Kate : He's not my boyfriend.

    Alex : What is he, then? Your brother?

    Kate : Oh, we have a comedian! What, did you eat clown for breakfast?

    Alex : Wonderful. Our first fight.

  • [last lines] 

    Kate : You waited.

  • [from trailer] 

    Alex : [voice over]  How's your sunset?

    Kate : It's perfect.

    Alex : I only wish you were here to share it with me.

  • Kate : I have to learn to live the life that I have got. Please don't write anymore. Don't try to find me. Let me let you go.

  • Kate : Life is not a book, Alex. And it can be over in a second. I was having lunch with my mother at Daley Plaza and a man was killed right in front of me. He died in my arms. And I thought, "It can't end just like that on Valentine's Day." And I thought about all the people who love him, waiting at home, who will never see him again. And then I thought, "What if there is no one? What if you live your whole life and no one is waiting?"

  • Alex : What's it like in the year 2006?

    Kate : Well, I'm afraid the world's pretty much the same. Of course, we all dress in shiny metal jumpsuits and drive flying cars and no one talks anymore because we can read each other's minds... but, the truth is, from the past, not much has really changed in 2006.

  • Kate's Mother : He sounds like a nice boy.

    Kate : [disbelievingly]  Anything else?

    Kate's Mother : You mean the time-thing? That's just a detail.

  • [from trailer] 

    Kate : I sometimes feel as if I'm invisible, as if no one can see me at all. I never felt that way when I lived at the Lake House.

  • [from trailer] 

    Kate : [from trailer]  Even though this is clearly impossible, it's amazing.

  • Kate : My dog is eight years old, six in your time; skinny, has sad eyes, snores, and sleeps like a human.

  • Kate : Okay, my mystery correspondent, I get it - just in case you really are where and when you think you are, you'll need this

    [he takes out a scarf from his mailbox] 

    Kate : . There was a freak late snow and everyone got sick. So, plenty of rest, lots of fluids. Doctor's orders.

    Alex : [sarcastically]  Snow. Right.

  • Alex : I'm married too. I've got eight children and none of them look like me. I'm worried, Kate.

    Kate : I would be too.

    Alex : [chuckles]  I'm single.

  • [from trailer] 

    Kate : [voice over]  Dear new tenant, welcome to your new home. I'm sure you'll love living here as much as I did.

    Alex : What do you mean lived here?

    Kate : Since no one has lived in this house for years.

  • [from trailer] 

    Kate : Can this be happening?

  • Alex : [after he saw her at the subway station in 2004]  I don't know if you remember but, we saw each other. That is, I saw you. You never told me... how beautiful you were.

    Kate : Well, maybe you saw someone else. That was a bad hair year for me.

    Alex : Long brown hair, gentle unguarded eyes...

    Kate : OK, OK. You saw me. But I still don't know what you look like.

  • Kate : It was you. Why didn't you tell me?

    Alex : You would've thought I was crazy or drunk. Or both.

  • [from trailer] 

    Kate : It's kind of a long distance relationship.

  • [from trailer] 

    Kate : I miss the Lake House. And its trees.

  • Kate Forster : [to Alex]  Call me on July 10, 2006 at... 9:05 PM.

    [cell phone rings] 

    Kate Forster : [hesitantly picks it up]  Hello?

    Morgan : Kate. It's Morgan.

  • Kate : [surveying her new apartment]  Fix the light. Get dog food. Get human food.

  • Kate : It's nice. It's safe.

    Anna Klyczynski : Christ, he's in prison, isn't he? You're one of *those* women, aren't you?

  • Kate : [to Jack the dog, while playing chess]  You want to move that piece? Nice!

  • Girl Patient : My mom's last boyfriend was bald. He was nice, but she didn't marry him.

    Kate : No?

    Girl Patient : There's always something better coming around the corner. That's what she says...

    Kate : If she's not careful, she can spend her whole life waiting.

  • Kate : [thinking out loud on the Loop]  Maybe we should properly introduce ourselves.

    [guy folds his newspapers and applies breath mint] 

  • [from trailer] 

    Kate : [voice over]  Here's a little something for you. There was a freak blizzard in the spring of 2004. So, watch out for that April snow.

  • [from trailer] 

    Kate : [voice over]  Ridiculous. For argument's sake, what day is it there?

    Alex : April 14th, 2004.

    Kate : No. It's April 14th, 2006.

    Alex : It's the same day two years apart.

  • [from trailer] 

    Kate : It's not meant to be.

    Alex : No, don't say that. Something must've happened.

  • Morgan : [interrupting Kate and Alex's kiss]  Kate.

    Kate : [awkwardly]  Um, Alex was just telling me about the lake house. Yeah, it sounds really great.

    Morgan : Great.

  • Kate : Now, tell me did you or did you not write each other?

    Kate's Mother : To your father?

    Kate : No, Clark Gable.

  • Anna Klyczynski : What's his name?

    Kate : Morgan.

    Anna Klyczynski : Morgan...mmm...that's a sexy name.

  • [to Morgan] 

    Kate Forster : What is this, Jr. High?
