45 Times The Notebook Turned You Into an Emotional Mess
It's been 15 years since The Notebook hit theaters back in 2004, but Noah and Allie's heartwarming, heartwrenching love story still leaves us reeling. With Summer love and soul mates and a complicated love triangle, the film adaptation of Nicholas Sparks's book triggered all kinds of feelings — and an even bigger crush on Gosling, of course (which almost didn't happen!). Even now, more than a decade later, the movie's most quotable moments can make us tear up, so take a look back at 45 times The Notebook touched your heart. Because, as Noah said, it still isn't over!
