A popular dialogue from American actress and filmmaker Greta Gerwig’s critically acclaimed Little Women, which won the Academy Award for Best Costume Design this year, has turned into a funny meme on Twitter.
In the scene from the movie, Laurie (Timothée Chalamet) professes his love for Jo March (Saoirse Ronan) and asks for her hand in marriage. However, she rejects him, saying, “I can’t, I can't! I have tried it, I can’t.” The ‘I can’t’ dialogue has attracted funny reactions by tweeple, adding it to situations like, “When someone tells me to study”.
Los Angeles-based writer Alison Herman shared the meme on social media. She added the dialogue from Little Women to the situation, “trying to write a sentence without an em dash.”
