If there’s anything that I love more than fashion, it’s the cinema. And Nora Ephron was one of my favourite screenwriters. When Harry met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle and You’ve got Mail are some of the few intelligent romantic comedies. I really miss Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks, back when love films weren’t full of clichés and the lines were witty.
Here you have some examples of it. Thank you, Nora.
Harry: You were going to be a gymnast.
Sally: A journalist.
Harry: Right, that’s what I said.
“The whole purpose of places like Starbucks is for people with no decision-making ability whatsoever to make six decisions just to buy one cup of coffee. Short, tall, light, dark, caf, decaf, low-fat, non-fat, etc. So people who don’t know what the hell they’re doing or who on earth they are can, for only $2.95, get not just a cup of coffee but an absolutely defining sense of self: Tall. Decaf. Cappuccino.” You’ve got Mail
“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.” When Harry met Sally
“Everybody thinks they have good taste and a sense of humor but they couldn’t possibly all have good taste.” When Harry met Sally
“When your children are teenagers, it’s important to have a dog so that someone in the house is happy to see you.”
