-- Saint: ' Oh, no , you don't. You're really very fond-of me .'
-- Val: ' Why should I be fond you you? '
-- Saint: ' Tell me and you'll answer the riddle of the world . My dear Val, that's what has made history, literature, and even chemistry . A man and a woman .'

(3) Isabel Lorrison (Ava Gardner) to Brandon Bourne (James Mason) in East Side, West Side (1949): ' Maybe it wasn't love , maybe it was only chemistry , or the right combination, or a miracle, but most people drag through their whole lives without finding it .'

(4) Jan Morrow (Doris Day) and Jonathan Forbes (Tony Randall) in Pillow Talk (1959):
-- Jan: ' Jonathan, I just don't happen to love you .'
-- Jonathan: ' How do you know? Love isn't an opinion, it's a chemical reaction .'

(5) Mark (Dabney Coleman) and Darcy (Patti D'Arbanville) in Modern Problems (1981):
-- Mark: ' I seem to know instinctively when two people have the right chemistry and as far as I'm concerned, you and I, we're magic .'
-- Darcy: ' Well, then, I'll just disappear .'
