Of course, it's Allie and Noah from The Notebook! They said:

Josh: The Notebook.

Shenae: The thought of The Notebook kind of makes me hyperventilate a little bit. I’m in a emotional state after seeing that movie.

Josh: I’m the only guy that would admit that I watched that movie and I fucking love that movie. So good. It’s such a good film.

Shenae: It totally breaks your heart. I’m such a sap with movies. I’m inconsolable for at least an hour and a half.

Josh: I actually considered asking Shenae, like leaving her or getting her leaving me so I could grow a beard and then build a house and then meet again.
