Writing a Scene

 

The Real Scene

The actual scene from When Harry Met Sally (1989), written by Nora Ephron:

HARRY:

I'll roll down the window. Why don't you tell me the story of your life.

SALLY:

Story of my life?

HARRY:

We've got eighteen hours to kill before we hit New York.

SALLY:

The story of my life isn't even going to get us out of Chicago. I mean, nothing's happened to me yet. That's why I'm going to New York.

HARRY:

So something can happen to you?

SALLY:

Yes.

HARRY:

Like what?

SALLY:

I can go into journalism school to become a reporter.

HARRY:

So you can write about things that happen to other people.

SALLY:

That's one way to look at it.
