RENT is L.O.V.E.  
Need more proof aside from it's the one thing that managed to make me fall head over heels in love?

To being an us for once, instead of a them! La vie boheme! (La Vie Boheme)
* To hand-crafted beers made in local breweries, to yoga, to yogurt, to rice and beans and cheese, to leather, to dildos, to curry vindaloo, to huevos rancheros and maya angelou. Emotion, devotion, to causing a commotion, creation, vacation, mucho masturbation (La Vie Boheme)
* Life's too short, babe, time is flying! I'm looking for baggage that goes with mine! (La Vie Boheme)
* I should tell you I'm disaster. (I Should Tell You)

Benny: Black leather and lace! My desk was a mess! I think I'm still sore...
Mimi: Cuz I kicked him and I told him I wasn't his whore!
Benny: Well does your boyfriend know who your last boyfriend was?
Roger: I"m not her boyfriend, I don't care what she does! (Happy New Year B)
* Women, what is it about them? Can't live with them or without them! Take me for what I am, who I was meant to be and if you give a damn, take me baby or leave me! (Take Me or Leave Me)
* Without you the ground thaws, the rain falls, the grass grows. Without you the seeds root, the flowers bloom, the children play. The stars gleam, the poets dream, the eagles fly without you. The earth turns, the sun burns, but I die without you. (Without You)
* Marky, sell us your soul! Just kidding! We're waiting... (Voice Mail #4)

* I'd be happy to die for a taste of what Angel had; Someone to live for, unafraid to say I love you! (Goodbye Love)
* You don't want baggage without lifetime guarantees? You don't want to watch me die. I just came to say goodbye, love. Goodbye, love. Came to say Goodbye, love, goodbye. Just came to say Goodbye, love (glory) Goodbye, love (one blaze of) Goodbye, love (glory) Goodbye (I have to find) (Goodbye Love)
* Just came to say Goodbye, love. Goodbye, love. Goodbye, love. Hello disease. (Goodbye Love)
* So I own not a notion, I escape and ape content. I don't own emotion I rent. What was it about that night (What was it about that night?) Connection in an isolating age! For once the shadows gave way to light! (For once the shadows gave way to light) For once I didn't disengage! Angel I hear you (Mimi I see you) I hear it (I see it) I see it! (I hear it) I see it my film! (I hear it my song!) Alexi, Mark (One song glory) Call me a hypocrite (Mimi) I need to finish my own film (Your eyes) I quit! Dying in America at the end of the millennium. We're dying in America to come into our own. And when you're dying in America at the end of the millennium you're not alone. I'm not alone. I'm not alone. (What You Own)
* Christmas bells are ringing! How time flies when compassion dies. No stockings, no candy canes, no gingerbread, no safety net, no loose change, no change no 'Santy Claus is coming!' Cuz Santy Claus ain't comin! No room at the Holiday Inn again, well maybe next year or when... (Finale)
*Mimi: Got a light? I know you you're shivering
Joanne: She's been living on the street
Roger: We need some heat
Mimi: I'm shivering
Mark: We can buy some wood and something to eat
Collins: I'm afraid she needs more than heat
Mimi: I heard that
Maureen: Collins'll call for a doctor honey
Mimi: Don't waste your money on Mimi, me, me
Collins: Hello? 9-1-1? I'm on hold!
Mimi: Cold, cold! Would you light my candle?
Roger: Yes, we'll, oh God, find a candle... (Finale)
* I should tell you I love you (Finale)
* I should tell you, I should tell you, I have always loved you. You can see it in my eyes. (Your Eyes)

* I can't control my destiny. I trust my soul, my only goal is just to be. (Finale B)
* No day but today! (Finale B)

pshhh. Daphne is better in my mind, as a Mimi, though Rosario did do an amazing job. This was great, thank you!
