When Harry Met Sally Scene 18

Scene 18

Scene 18

  • Appropriately, the movie cuts to Harry and Sally having a rather illicit conversation over diner food.
  • Harry's describing how he can sleep with a woman and then ditch her before the morning.
  • For her part, Sally thinks that makes him "a human affront to all women."
  • Harry's all—hey, they're not complaining. And he knows because they… [insert suggestive hand gesture].
  • Sally calls him out—how does Harry know that the women he sleeps with aren't faking their—ahem—pleasure at his performance?
  • Harry swears he would know if they were.
  • Sally's skeptical. But instead of hashing it out, she opts for a demonstration…
  • ...and fakes an orgasm in a diner full of people.
  • Harry just sort of stares at her: you done yet?
  • Sally grabs a bite of her pie, and the lady at the table next to them says, "I'll have what she's having."
