Classic Quotes by Sally Field and Burt Reynolds about their relationship:

"[I] made brownies and rubbed his feet and never asked for any space. It wasn't fair of me because I had never professed to need anything." Sally Field
"I haven't seen her in 10 years and I'd like to very much. Because I'd like to tell her in person what I didn't know then. That is, how incredibly unselfish she was in terms of the time she spent with me. You know, inside that little body of hers is one of the strongest people I've ever met. What I didn't ever appreciate enough, until I had Quinton, was what it means to have a child and say to somebody else, 'I'll be with you,' away from my child. And now I know what an incredible gift that was.'" Burt Reynolds
"I miss her terribly. Even now, it's hard on me. I don't know why I was so stupid. Men are like that, you know. You find the perfect person and then you do everything you can to screw it up." Burt Reynolds
"It's the absolute truth. I've replayed it enough times in my head. Sally was the one. The timing just didn't work out. There was a time when she wanted us to stay together, and there was a time when I wanted us to stay together." Burt Reynolds 2016
"We just never felt the same way at the same time." Burt Reynolds 2016
"Well, she was 7 when I fell in love with her. She stayed 7 for about 11 years." Burt Reynolds 3/2018
