Tagline film ini: Boy meets girl. Boy falls in love. Girl doesn't. Sesuai taglinenya, film ini bercerita tentang seorang cowo (Joseph Gordon-Levitt aka. Tom Hansen) yang patah hati. Kita diajak flashback ke hari-hari yang uda dilewatinya bereng si cewe (Zooey Deschanel aka. Summer Finn). Mulai dari awal pertemuan mereka, first kiss mereka, kebegoan-kebegoan yang uda mereka lewatin bareng, sampe akhirnya Summer ngerasa ada yang salah dan mutusin untuk 'stop seeing each other'. Yah, nonton sendiri lah. tema ceritanya biasa banget koq, cuma makna filmnya daleeeemmm.. :) :)
Tom: It's official. I'm in love with Summer. [while Montage of Summer plays]
Tom: I love her smile. I love her hair. I love her knees. I love how she licks her lips before she talks. I love her heart-shaped birthmark on her neck. I love it when she sleeps.
Summer: We've been like Sid and Nancy for months now.
Tom: Summer, Sid stabbed Nancy, seven times with a kitchen knife, I mean we have some disagreements but I hardly think I'm Sid Vicious.
Summer: No I'm Sid.
Tom: Oh, so I'm Nancy... [Pancakes arrive]
Summer: Let's just eat and we'll talk about it later. Mmm, that is good, I'm really glad we did this. I love these pancakes... what? [Tom gets up and walks away from the table]
Summer: Tom, don't go! You're still my best friend!
Tom: [Montage of Summer] I hate her crooked teeth. I hate her 1960s haircut. I hate her knobby knees. I hate her cockroach-shaped splotch on her neck. I hate the way she smacks her lips before she talks. I hate the way she sounds when she laughs. [Fade to black as Swayze's "She's Like the Wind" plays briefly]
Tom: I HATE THIS SONG!
Bus Driver: [Open to Tom standing while bus comes to a sudden stop] Sir, you need to get off the bus.
Summer: I woke up one morning and I just knew.
Tom: Knew what?
Summer: What I was never sure of with you.
