電影 The Lake House (跳越時空的情書) 中Sandra Bullock與生活在兩年前的Keanu Reeves藉由兩人都居住過的湖濱小屋信箱互相了解, 欣賞進而相約見面, 後來卻沒有見到, Keanu Reeves用persuation這本書勸Sandra Bullock不要放棄, 而Sandra Bullock對Keanu Reeves說
Life is not a book.
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?
so I drove to the lake house looking for any kind of answer.
And I found you.
And I let myself get lost.
Lost in this beautiful fantasy where time stood still.
But it’s not real.
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.
其中 I have to learn to live the life that I have got 表達了Sandra Bullock意識到自己必需選擇let go, 在現實生活中學著接受現況 ; 而蘇珊對於這句台詞也特別有感觸 ; 當然, 結局是美好的, 這些對白只是中間的轉折, 卻在這段對白中看到Sandra Bullock面對現有狀況的內心歷程,
