41 Sweet Quotes From Heartstopper That Will Make Your Heart Flutter

It should come as no surprise that Heartstopper has instantly become one of our favorite Netflix series of the season, with a love story unlike anything else we've seen on TV.

It follows Charlie Spring, an openly gay student at an English secondary school, who's struggled with his confidence, not made any better by rampant bullying at school. He's secretly seeing another boy, Ben, who pretends he doesn't know Charlie when he sees him in the halls and has only a couple of close friends to confide in. He's expecting this school year to be no better than the last, but when he's seated next to the kindly (and very cute) rugby player Nick Nelson in class, he starts crushing hard on him—but there's no way Nick could ever like him back, right?

If you've already watched the show, you know it's as sweet—and quotable—as they come. Below are some of the very best quotes from the series, which double as excellent Instagram captions.
