What’s The Grandest Grand Gesture You Remember?

Patrick dancing in 10 Things About You

Recently, Team H&H was talking about grand gestures. We had our favorites—Heath Ledger's song and dance routine in 10 Things I Hate About You, Nick's public declaration gesture in Alisha Rai's Hate to Want You, or the finding of the family jewels in Eloisa James' Three Weeks with Lady X. 

What are some of your favorite grand gestures? Do you think a grand gesture is important or do you prefer quieter declarations? 

Tell us about it in the comments!

10 Things I Hate About You...what a classic. Patrick's song was pretty epic, though shoutout to Kat's poem too!

I couldn't answer this as I still get the feels when I see Heath Ledger. I'm not crying, you're crying!

My favorite grandest gesture is when Pacey bought Joey the blank wall in the 3rd season of Dawson's Creek. Or when he simply told her that he remembered everything. *swoon*

@wsl0612 -- I hear you. I saw 10 Things not too long after his death, but I developed a block about all his other projects. Just rewatched A Knight's Tale for the first time a couple weeks ago. So beautiful and gone way too soon.

@BrooklynShoeBabe -- Oh yeahhhhh. That's a very good one! "Ask me to stay"!!!!!!!

I usually prefer quieter declarations, but my favorite grand gesture is the declaration in front of the huge corporate videoconference at the end of Courtney Milan's Trade Me.

I'm another who prefers a quieter declaration; I'm thinking of something along the lines of the pound of coffee beans that Roarke gives to Eve Dallas in the first ...in Death book.

The quiet declaration always gets to me.
Jack hanging onto debris and holding Rose's hand before slipping away beneath the waves.
Yup, gets me every time.

I love grand gestures and quite declarations. I also think the quiet declaration can be a grand gesture depending on the people involved.
