Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind – Meet Me in Montauk

Clementine Kruczynski (Kate Winslet) whispers this cryptic request to her indecisive lover, Joel Barish (Jim Carrey), as the beach house symbolically crumbles around them in the 2004 film Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.


Clementine: Joely? What if you stayed this time?
Joel: I walked out the door. There’s no memory left.
Clementine: Come back and make up a good-bye at least. Let’s pretend we had one.
[Joel comes back. Clementine walks down the stairs towards him.]
Clementine: Bye Joel.
Joel: I love you.
Clementine (whispering): Meet me… in Montauk…

What if you had a second chance … in Montauk?
