When Harry Met Sally…

Answer: It’s the most memorable scene from 1989’s “When Harry Met Sally.” Over a sandwich at Katz’s Delicatessen, Sally (Meg Ryan) tells Harry (Billy Crystal) that all women have faked an orgasm at some point. Harry doesn’t believe her, so she demonstrates it, right over her corned beef sandwich. After her performance, the camera cuts to a patron who tells the waitress, “I’ll have what she’s having.” This iconic line was delivered by Estelle Reiner, mother of the film’s director, Rob Reiner. When Estelle Reiner died in 2008, The New York Times referred to her as the woman “who delivered one of the most memorably funny lines in movie history.”

The characters of Harry and Sally were individually based on director Rob Reiner and screenwriter Nora Ephron. The film’s iconic line, “I’ll have what she’s having” was delivered by Rob Reiner’s mother.

Ideas for the film began when Rob Reiner divorced from Penny Marshall. An interview Ephron conducted with Reiner provided the basis for Harry. Sally was based on Ephron and some of her friends. Crystal came on board and made his own contributions to the screenplay, making Harry funnier. Ephron supplied the structure of the film with much of the dialogue based on the real-life friendship between Reiner and Crystal. The soundtrack consists of standards from Harry Connick Jr., with a big band and orchestra arranged by Marc Shaiman. For his work on the soundtrack, Connick won his first Grammy Award for Best Jazz Male Vocal Performance.
