Joe Fox: You know, sometimes I wonder… Kathleen Kelly: What? Joe Fox: Well… if I hadn’t been Fox Books and you hadn’t been The Shop Around the Corner, and you and I had just, well, met… Kathleen Kelly: I know. Joe Fox: Yeah. I would have asked for your number, and I wouldn’t have been able to wait twenty-four hours before calling you and saying, “Hey, how about… oh, how about some coffee or, you know, drinks or dinner or a movie… for as long as we both shall live?" Kathleen Kelly: Joe… Joe Fox: And you and I would have never been at war. And the only thing we’d fight about would be which video to rent on a Saturday night. Kathleen Kelly: Well, who fights about that? Joe Fox: Well, some people. Not us. Kathleen Kelly: We would never. Joe Fox: If only.
Harry Burns: I love that you get cold when it’s 71 degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle above your nose when you’re looking at me like I’m nuts. I love that after I spend the day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes. And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night. And it’s not because I’m lonely, and it’s not because it’s New Year’s Eve. I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.
Sally Albright: You see? That is just like you, Harry. You say things like that, and you make it impossible for me to hate you.
What is that supposed to mean? I am so sick of that. All that means is that it wasn't personal to you. But it was personal to me. It's *personal* to a lot of people. And what's so wrong with being personal, anyway?
Whatever else anything is, it ought to begin by being personal.
In possibly one of the greatest romantic movies ever, Meg Ryan portrays Sally Albright in ‘When Harry Met Sally’. Her outfits in the movie align with changing fashion trends from the late 70s to 80s. There isn’t a bad outfit worn by Meg Ryan throughout the entire film. Rob Reiner’s masterpiece is definitely worth watching!
This 1989 comedy made numerous witty contributions to the romantic lexicon – and kickstarted a (still-raging) debate as to whether men and women could “really” be friends – but it was the pair’s New Year’s Eve reconciliation that moved viewers to tears. As Billy Crystal (Harry) told Meg Ryan (Sally): “I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with someone, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.”
I’m so glad this was the comparison RM decided to make because this kiss shall be EPIC (:
