When Greg Met Nora

Nora Ephron passed away yesterday at 71 years old.  For those of you not familiar with Nora, she wrote When Harry Met Sally, which happens to be one of my favorite movies.  

Is it a total chick flick?  Definitely.

Do I watch it every time it’s on TV?  Hell yeah.

Have I ever cried during it?  No comment.

As a big salute to Nora Ephron’s incredible script/movie.  Here are four of the most memorable scenes from When Harry Met Sally.

Here is where the whole “men and women cannot not be friends” theory came to from  (Annex).  Is it true? Umm, not totally but, kind of.

Okay, so this isn’t one scene in particular, it’s more of a compilation, but old people talking about love is absolutely adorable.  To hell with cynicism. 

Call me a sap, but this is a perfect Rom-Com ending.  Frank Sinatra in the background, the running through New York City, the impassioned speech, the faint tears, the kiss, Auld Lang Syne, the playful banter.  Future Wife be warned, this is how I will profess my love to you.

Everything about this scene has already been said, so, yeah.

Also, Big Shout Out to some other Nora Ephron classics; My Blue Heaven, Sleepless in Seattle and You’ve Got Mail.
