It’s coming on Christmas, they’re cutting down trees. Do you know that Joni Mitchell song? I wish I had a river I could skate away on. Such a sad song. And not really about Christmas at all but I was thinking about it tonight as I was decorating my Christmas tree. Unwrapping funky ornaments made of Popsicle sticks and missing my mother so much I almost couldn’t breathe. I always miss my mother at Christmas but somehow it is worse this year since I need some advice from her. I need her to make me some cocoa and tell me that everything that’s going badly in my life will sort itself out.

JOE: So, what’s his handle? I’m not gonna write him. Is that what you’re worried about? You think I’m gonna e-mail him?
KATHLEEN: All right. NY152.

Last month When Harry Met Sally celebrated it’s 25th anniversary. 

“I think the reason why When Harry Met Sally works is that there’s a lot of [screenwriter] Nora Ephron in Sally. It was an idea I had based on the fact that I had been single for 10 years and making a mess of my single life, and started thinking about how men dated and whether sex gets in the way of a friendship. 

"I started talking to Nora about it and she said, ‘There’s definitely a film in this.’ I knew I needed to have a woman’s voice, and I was lucky enough to pick the smartest, funniest woman on the planet”. - director Rob Reiner.
