‘I’ll have what she’s having”

Nora Ephron was an acclaimed essay writer; she wrote Oscar award winning screenplays including this one: When Harry met Sally. This film follows two friends as they (oh so slowly) fall in love.

And the climax of the film… here we see the two in a café, Sally is shocked by Harry and his attitude towards woman where he claims that he doesn’t hear any of them ‘complaining’. It is now Sally bursts into a somewhat passionate response: throwing her head back and groaning with a false satisfaction to prove Harry’s ignorance on what a woman might really want….

Yet through all its hilarity the scene does not lose its message and is iconic in both cinema and reality: In a world where statements like Harry’s cause so little shock: sex isn’t the only thing girls should be making loud noises about.


“In my sex fantasy, nobody ever loves me for my mind.” ― Nora Ephron
