For those who are freaked out/uncomfortable with the possibility of Annie and Corky together in the future, just bare in mind these other memorable characters (a few of which you might have even rooted for in their lives intersecting in such a way, romantically speaking) all began as Annie and Kevin are now.
Detective Hartigan: You don’t save a little girl’s life and then turn around and throw her to the dogs. Not by my books.
Skinny little Nancy Callahan. She grew up. She filled out.
Nancy Callahan: Let me stay close. Nothing can happen to me when I’m with you. Please? Let me stay close.
It’s always been you, Hartigan. All these years.
Memoirs of a Geisha:
The Chairman: I owe Nobu my life. So, when I saw he had a chance at happiness with you, I stood aside and… But I cannot any longer. I hope it is not too late.
Sayuri/Chiyo: Can’t you see? Every step I have taken, since I was that child on the bridge has been to bring myself closer to you.
A copper tub. Hot water sluicing over my skin. Gentle hands. The smell of sandalwood.
Hold me….hold me, Kevin…I just need somewhere…I don’t know! I’m feverish, I’m freezing….Oh please…Tell me everything’s going to be alright, Kevin…even if it won’t…even if it won’t…
Can we please talk about the way Corcoran and Annie are posed in this? I love how you can see all the Hell Annie has gone through on her face like it still haunts her and her holding on to Corcoran relying on him to protect her and Corcoran’s expression that just screams that she is under his protection and anyone who tries to hurt her answers to him. That is one of the reasons I love Corcoran so much. He didn’t have to take care of Annie, but he takes his duty of protecting the people of New York so seriously and as soon as he found out more and more about her he made it his priority to keep her safe from all the hell and terror of the world. She is his little girl and his natural Daddy mode kicks in.

The Empty Locket
Elizabeth Haverford + Annie Reilly
((This is how I WISH the scene had gone))
Elizabeth Haverford: I don’t know if I’ve ever heard….that exact version of lyrics to Mary Had A Little Lamb.
Annie Reilly:….There are other versions?
Of all the world that I’ve run from…you’re the only one I run to.
