Nora Ephron: When Harry Met Sally (kinda May, September – Oona and Charlie, definitely straying into May, January)

Sally:
[Crying hysterically] And I’m going to be forty!
Harry:
When?
Sally:
Someday!
Harry:
In eight years!
Sally:
But it’s there! It’s like a big dead end! And it’s not the same for men — Charlie Chaplin had kids in his 70’s!
Harry:
Yeah, but he was too old to pick them up.

  1. Love, absolutely love “When Harry Met Sally”. Nora really was someone to look up to – for this screenplay and so many other reasons.

    I must look up Delia’s book you referenced, “How to Eat Like a Child, etc.” I’m ashamed to say I’ve never read it!
