What are the best quotes from “The Last Song”? This romantic drama released in spring 2010 stars teen pop sensation Miley Cyrus as a rebellious girl who is staying with her estranged father for the summer. During her stay, she not only reconnects with her father but meets a guy and falls in love. Many quotes from “The Last Song” are romantic and thought-provoking. Here are the five best quotes:
“Love is fragile.” In this quote from “The Last Song,” Steve Miller, played by Greg Kinnear, is writing a letter to Cyrus’s character, Ronnie. He says “Love is fragile and we’re not always its best caretakers. We just muddle through and do the best we can and hope this fragile thing survives against all odds.” This quote highlights the tenuous but loving relationships between father and daughter in the movie.
“We’re not perfect.” This quote from ”The Last Song” is from Ronnie’s mother played by Kelly Preston. She says, “We’re not perfect. Any of us. We make mistakes, we screw up, but then we forgive and move forward.” This quote also tells us a great deal about the struggling relationship between the rebellious Ronnie and her parents.
“Mom says it’s because she has PMS.” In this humorous quote from “The Last Song,” Ronnie’s brother, Jonah, tells their father that he thinks PMS means “Pissed at Men” syndrome.
“It’s not what I wanted this time to be about.” Toward the end of “The Last Song,” Steve reveals to his daughter that he is very ill and she is angry because he didn’t tell her the truth when he brought her to visit for the summer. This heartwrenching moment in the hospital is one of the most moving parts of the film.
“Because I thought you would like her as much as I do, scars and all.” This quote from ”The Last Song” is Ronnie’s boyfriend’s response when he brings her to see something he loves for the first time. This part of the film shows us how they are falling in love for the first time and its effect on both of them.
