    16 Itsy-Bitsy Details From Your Fave '90s Romance Movies That'll Make You Wonder How You Missed Them

    Look closely into Gaston's eyes in Beauty and the Beast...

    1. In Pretty Woman, the opera Edward takes Vivian to is called "La Traviata." The opera is about a prostitute who falls in love with a wealthy man, which mirrors Edward and Vivian's storyline in the film.

    2. In Notting Hill, the wedding cake at the end of the film has a goat playing a violin on it. This is a reference to a painting both Anna and Will own.

    3. In Sleepless in Seattle, Sam tells his son Jonah that one of the things he loved about his late-wife was how she cut the peel off an apple in one long curly strip. A few scenes before, you see Annie peeling her apple in the same way.

    4. In Never Been Kissed, Josie wears a pilot pin. When Josie becomes popular, the popular girls start wearing pilot pins, too.

    5. In Clueless, Cher's gum matches her outfit.

    6. In Four Weddings and a Funeral, on Charles' wedding day, he's told that getting married is "...Pretty easy. Just say 'l do' whenever anyone asks you a question." The only question Charles is asked when he's at the alter is if he loves someone else, and his reply is "I do."

    7. In You've Got Mail, Kathleen buys flowers from a pregnant-looking florist at the beginning of the film. Later in the film, we can see an "it's a girl" sign in the flower shop.

    8. In 10 Things I Hate About You, when the doorbell rings before the hoards of teens crash his party, Nigel says, "That must be Nigel with the brie." The first teen who comes barreling through the door is, in fact, Nigel with the brie.

    9. In Jerry Maguire, Renee Zellweger's iconic line is, "You had me at hello." In Shark Tale, Angie (voiced by Renee) smiles when Oscar repeats this exact line.

    10. In Can't Hardly Wait, Trip McNealy's fraternity letters — Delta Iota Kappa — spell out "di(c)k."

    11. In Titanic, Rose is shocked when Jack suggests she "rides a horse like a man," aka NOT side-saddle. At the end of the movie, we see a picture of Rose doing just that.

    12. In Before Sunrise, Jesse tries to move Céline's hair but pulls his hand away at the last minute. In the sequel, Before Sunset, Céline makes the same gesture.

    13. In Romeo + Juliet, all of the guns are named after bladed weapons, aka the weapons they would have used in Shakespearian times.

    14. In The Bodyguard, the photos that Rachel is signing are actually the cover art for Whitney Houston's (who played Rachel) song, "Didn't We Almost Have It All."

    15. In Joe Versus The Volcano, his lamp depicts the major events he's about to go through during the film.

    16. Lastly, in Beauty and the Beast, you can see skulls in Gaston's eyes as he falls to his death.
