The primary tagline is an allusion to a poem written by Elizabeth Barrett Browning from her Sonnets from the Portuguese collection. (“How do I loathe thee? Let me count the ways.”) Another tagline is a spoof from Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet (“Romeo, Oh Romeo, Get Out Of My Face.”) and another is a line from The Taming of the Shrew that is spoken in the film by Cameron (“I burn, I pine, I perish!”). The original script was finalized on November 12, 1997.
