Quote #1

Isaac shot me a look. "Right, of course. But you keep the promise anyway. That's what love is. Love is keeping the promise anyway. Don't you believe in true love?" (4.94)

All we've learned from this whole Isaac-getting-dumped episode is that Monica totally sucks and that she did not truly love Isaac. Thankfully, Hazel and Augustus find that they are totally truly in love.

Quote #2

I almost felt like he was there in my room with me, but in a way it was better, like I was not in my room and he was not in his, but instead we were together in some invisible and tenuous third space (5.67)

Hazel and Augustus are so in L-O-V-E that they're not even sitting in a tree. They're sitting in a magical third space. Since when is Hazel so sappy?

Quote #3

"Well, there's a kid who has hardly left the waiting room since you got here," she said. (7.17)

True rom-com moment: the protagonist wakes up to find her love interest waiting sleepily and adorably by her bedside. Is this an act of love? Empathy?
