Things I Like: Gilbert Blythe

I just had to share, I think Glibert Blythe is a babe.   Melts my heart.   That Anne is a lucky girl!

Carrots, carrots! (the language of love)
look at those dimples

Anne Shirley: You just think that you love me. 
Gilbert Blythe: Anne, I've loved you as long as I can remember. I need you.

Anne Shirley: I promise I'll always be here if you need me. Good friend are always together in spirit. Let's not change Gil, let's just go on being good friends.
Gilbert Blythe: Friends, huh? I thought we were kindred spirits.
[whispers forlornly]
Gilbert Blythe: Please say yes.
Anne Shirley: I can't. Gil, I'm so desperately sorry.
[runs off while a heartbroken Gil looks after her

Gilbert Blythe: [Gilbert has insulted Anne's writing] Listen, I'm sorry. What else can I do?
Anne Shirley: [she hits him with her basket of flowers] Let me get a word in edgewise once in a while, before I pitch you! 

(quotes from here)

Definitely a babe!

Anyone have a favourite leading man out there? I think I love the unrequited love ones, i.e. Mr. Darcy, Laurie from Little Women, Gil. It just twists my heart!
