‘When Harry Met Sally’ is turning 30

Dan Webster

One of the great scenes in all romantic comedies involves the actress Meg Ryan. And it comes during a scene in Rob Reiner's 1989 film "When Harry Met Sally" (screenplay by the late, great Nora Ephron).

Sally (Ryan) is having lunch with Harry (Billy Crystal), and the two are arguing about whether it's possible for a woman to fake an orgasm. Harry doubts it could happen. So right there, in Manhattan's Katz’s Delicatessen, Sally shows just how easy it would be to pull off.

The topper comes when, after Sally is done, a woman sitting nearby says, "I'll have what she's having."

You can see that scene again, along with the rest of the film, on Sunday and Tuesday at two area Regal Cinemas theaters, Northtown Mall 12 and Coeur d'Alene's Riverstone Stadium 14. Sunday's screenings are at 4 p.m., while Tuesday's are at 4 and 7 p.m.

The special event celebrates the movie's 30th anniversary. But as anyone who has seen the movie knows, some scenes are timeless.
