movie reference question....

I can't place what movie a bit of dialogue comes from, basically
someone asks "do you love me?" and then the conversation becomes "do
you lurve me?" as if lurve (lerve?, leurve?) was a higher form of

help me, i'm going insane.

I am confident that you are referring to a conversation between Diane
Keaton and Woody Allen in "Annie Hall."   Here is one fan's
transcription of that snippet of dialogue, including Woody's

"Do you love me? Love is too weak a word. I lerve you. You know, I
lo-ove you. I luff you. There are two "f's." I have to invent... of
course I love you."

Other sources for this information abound on the Internet, including
this one from a seemingly especially reliable source.  This
transcription of a very brief snippet of Marshall Brickman's
screenplay doesn't include Allen's inflections and exaggerations of
the word love, but you get the idea:

You- Do you love me?
Well, I certainly ... I think that's very- Yeah, yeah ...(Laughing)
yeah.  Do you love me?
I-uh, love is, uh, is too weak a word for what...
I ... I love you. 
(Over Annie's laughter) 
You know I lo-ove you, I-I love you. 
(Over Annie's laughter) 
I-I have to invent- Of course I love you."

Search Strategy:						O	 

This Google search one led me to the information:

"do you love" lerve OR lurve

I then used other search term variations to find confirmation of the
information and to gain reasonable confidence that there was no
contradictory online information.

Finally, this simple search led me to the screen play and to lots of
corroboration of the source of the dialogue:

"do you love me" "annie hall"

If anything is unclear, or in the unlikely event that you have reason
to believe that this is not the dialogue you remember, please ask for
clarification before rating the answer, and I will continue to work
with you.
