When Harry Met Sally...

When Harry Met Sally...1989

Genre: Comedy, Drama, Romance
In 1977, college graduates Harry Burns (Billy Crystal) and Sally Albright (Meg Ryan) share a contentious car ride from Chicago to New York, during which they argue about whether men and women can ever truly be strictly platonic friends. Ten years la… more »

Harry Burns:
You realize of course that we could never be friends.

Sally Albright:
Why not?

Harry Burns:
What I'm saying is - and this is not a come-on in any way, shape or form - is that men and women can't be friends because the sex part always gets in the way.

Sally Albright:
That's not true. I have a number of men friends and there is no sex involved.

Harry Burns:
No you don't.

Sally Albright:
Yes I do.

Harry Burns:
No you don't.

Sally Albright:
Yes I do.

Harry Burns:
You only think you do.

Sally Albright:
You say I'm having sex with these men without my knowledge?

Harry Burns:
No, what I'm saying is they all WANT to have sex with you.

Sally Albright:
They do not.

Harry Burns:
Do too.

Sally Albright:
They do not.

Harry Burns:
Do too.

Sally Albright:
How do you know?

Harry Burns:
Because no man can be friends with a woman that he finds attractive. He always wants to have sex with her.

Sally Albright:
So, you're saying that a man can be friends with a woman he finds unattractive?

Harry Burns:
No. You pretty much want to nail 'em too.

Sally Albright:
What if THEY don't want to have sex with YOU?

Harry Burns:
Doesn't matter because the sex thing is already out there so the friendship is ultimately doomed and that is the end of the story.

Sally Albright:
Well, I guess we're not going to be friends then.

Harry Burns:
I guess not.

Sally Albright:
That's too bad. You were the only person I knew in New York.
