  • You complete me.

  • - And I just... -Shut up. Just shut up.

  • You had me at hello.

  • What do you think "You had me at hello" means?

  • Is it A) I have loved you since we met or B) There is something we need to talk about?

  • Shut up. Just shut up. You had me at hello.

  • The answer is A) I have loved you since we met.
