When Harry Met Sally

Such a classic feel-good movie. One of my favourite romance films, no doubt. Such a sucker, HUGE sucker for films like this T.T

Harry: Don’t you have a dark side? No, you’re probably one of those cheerful people who dot their i’s with little hearts. 

Sally: I have just as much of a dark side as the next person! 

Harry: Oh really? When I buy a book, I read the last page first. That way, in case I die before I finish, I know how it ends. That, my friend, is a dark side. Do you ever think about death? 

Sally: Yes… 

Harry: Sure you do – a fleeting thought that drifts in and out of the transom of your mind. I spend hours. I spend days. 

Sally: And you think this makes you a better person? 

Harry: Well…I’m going to be prepared, and you’re not. 

Sally: And in the meantime, you’re going to ruin your whole life waiting for it. 

Harry Burns: Would you like to have dinner?… Just friends.
Sally Albright: I thought you didn’t believe men and women could be friends.
Harry Burns: When did I say that?
Sally Albright: On the ride to New York.
Harry Burns: No, no, no, I never said that… Yes, that’s right, they can’t be friends. Unless both of them are involved with other people, then they can… This is an amendment to the earlier rule. If the two people are in relationships, the pressure of possible involvement is lifted… That doesn’t work either, because what happens then is, the person you’re involved with can’t understand why you need to be friends with the person you’re just friends with. Like it means something is missing from the relationship and why do you have to go outside to get it? And when you say “No, no, no it’s not true, nothing is missing from the relationship,” the person you’re involved with then accuses you of being secretly attracted to the person you’re just friends with, which you probably are. I mean, come on, who the hell are we kidding, let’s face it. Which brings us back to the earlier rule before the amendment, which is men and women can’t be friends.
