Pretty Woman (1990)

The Situation: Edward Lewis (Richard Gere), a New York businessman, falls in love with Vivian Ward (Julia Roberts), a charming call girl he hires while doing business in Los Angeles. Eventually developing a deep affection for Vivian, Edward offers to buy her a condo to get her off the street. Visibly upset, Vivian says she can't accept his offer. 

Quote: “Never in all the time ... that I had this dream did the knight say to me, 'Come on, baby, I'll put you up in a great condo.' – Vivian Ward (Julia Roberts)

Why It Works: Despite being a call girl, Vivian does not take Edward up on his offer to subsidize her life. She loves him and wants the whole package. Few movies display a streetwalker as a smart and independent as this.
