Nostalgia alert!

When Harry Met Sally

While, for many people, it is Sally's performance in the diner (you know the one!) that was the most memorable thing about the movie, for me it was 2 other things – I just loved the old couples and what they had to say and the other thing was the way that Sally ordered the apple pie.

Why?  Well in New Zealand people just order off the menu and very rarely ask for changes – just a cultural thing.  It wasn't until I first visited the States that I realised that many people treat a menu as just a starting point.  And Sally's apple pie was a great example of that.

If you'd like to see Sally's apple pie order, this is the link for it.  It's only 41 seconds long.

Did you love this movie too?


  1. I do love this movie! One of my top five favorites.

  2. I love this movie and pretty much everything else Meg Ryan has been in. French Kiss, You've Got Mail and Sleepless in Seattle are among my favorites. Thanks for the trip down memory lane! :)

  3. I too love this movie. It's a classic.

  4. This is certainly on of my most favourite movies and my favourite part of it is also the apple pie scene, although I also love the older couples. But I just love the way she orders her pie because that is almost me. LOL. Thanks for reminding me, will have to watch the film soon again.
