‘The Notebook’: 11 Hilarious References For The 10th Anniversary

It's sad, we get it!

What’s the number one way to convey the fact that someone is either sad, in tune with his or her own feelings, or way too macho to care about romance? Well, ever since June 25, 2004, the answer to that question has been “show that person crying while watching ‘The Notebook,’ admitting that he or she cried during ‘The Notebook,’ or referencing how much he or she can’t stand ‘The Notebook,’” respectively.

It’s now officially been ten years since the iconic Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams-starrer came out, but everyone — from your favorite movies and TV shows to the actual celebs who star in them — still can’t stop referencing it. (Heck, even MTV’s own “Teen Wolf” made a “Notebook” joke. It’s an addiction!) So in honor of Gosling and McAdams’ decennial anniversary, we’ve compiled 11 of our favorite “Notebook” mentions from the past ten years:

1. ‘Saturday Night Live’ (2005)
