Scene 5

  • A few minutes later, they've finished their meal, and Sally is splitting the bill.
  • Harry's staring at her. Uh oh.
  • He tells her she's very attractive. At first, Sally's flattered, and then it hits her: he's hitting on her.
  • Or at least that's what she thinks.
  • Harry denies it. "Can't a man say a woman is attractive without it being a come-on?"
  • He tries to take it back, but according to Sally, it's already out there. They've got to let it lie.
  • Harry has never let a thing lie in his life. He invites her to spend the night in the hotel.
  • Sally tells him that they're just going to be friends, but Harry says no dice.
  • See, according to Harry, "men and women can't be friends because the sex part always gets in the way."
  • Surprise, surprise: Sally disagrees. She's got tons of dude friends.
  • Yeah, who all want to sleep with you, Harry says.
  • Guess we can't be friends then, Sally says.
  • The next day, the two arrive in New York and part ways in Greenwich Village. They shake hands, tell each other to "have a nice life," and that's about it.
  • End of movie.
  • Wait. That can't be right…
