I have collected some
well-known quotes from the movie
(including my favorites....this movie is full of them!)
SALLY: (explaining the reason why she and her former boyfriend
broke-up)Well, if you must know, it was because he was very jealous, and I had these
days of the week underpants.
HARRY: (makes the sound of a game show buzzer) Ehhhh! I'm sorry.
I need the judges ruling on this. "Days of the weeks underpants"?
SALLY: Yes. They had the days of the week on them, and I thought they
were sort of funny. And then one day Sheldon says to me, "You never wear
Sunday." It was all suspicious. Where was Sunday? Where had I left Sunday? And I told
him...and he didn't believe me.
SALLY: They don't make Sunday.
HARRY: Why not?
SALLY: Because of God.
mentioned you had a dark side.
HARRY: That's what drew her to me.
SALLY: Your dark side?
HARRY: Sure. Why? Don't you have a dark side? I know, you're probably one
of those cheerful people who dot their "i's" with little hearts.
SALLY: I have just as much of a dark side as the next person.
HARRY: Oh, really? When I buy a new book, I read the last page first.
That way, in case I die before I finish, I know how it ends.
That, my friend, is a dark side.
HARRY: Would you like to have dinner? ...Just friends.
SALLY: I thought you didn't believe men and women could be friends.
HARRY: When did I say that?
SALLY: On the ride to New York.
HARRY: No, no, no, I never said that. .........(pauses and thinks
about it) Yes, that's right, they can't be friends. Unless both of them are involved
with other people, then they can - this is an amendment to the earlier rule. If the two
people are in relationships, the pressure of possible involvement is lifted. .... (another
pause) No, that doesn't work either, because what happens then is, the person you're
involved with can't understand why you need to be friends with the person you're just
friends with. Like it means something is missing from the relationship and why do you have
to go outside to get it? And when you say "No, no, no it's not true, nothing is
missing from the relationship," the person you're involved with then accuses you of
being secretly attracted to the person you're just friends with, which you probably are. I
mean, come on, who the hell are we kidding, let's face it. Which brings us back to the
earlier rule before the amendment, which is men and women can't be friends.
SALLY: Look, there is no point in my going out with someone I might
really like if I met him at the right time but who right now has no
chance of being anything to me but a transitional man.
MARIE: OK, but don't wait too long. Remember what happened to David Walsaw?
His wife left him and everyone said, "Give him some time, don't move in too
fast." Six months later he was dead.
SALLY: What are you saying? I should get married to someone right away in
case he's about to die?
MARIE: All I'm saying is that somewhere out there is the man you are
supposed to marry. And if you don't get him first, somebody else will, and you'll have to
spend the rest of your life knowing that somebody else is married to your husband
HARRY: (on Sally's answering machine) The fact
that you're not answering leads me to believe that (a) You're not home, (b) You're home
but you don't want to talk to me, or (c) You're home, desperately want to talk to me, but
you're trapped under something heavy. If it's either (a) or (c), please give me a call.
HARRY: I love that you get cold when it's 71 degrees out.
I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a
little crinkle in your nose when you're looking at me like I'm nuts. I love that after I
spend day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes. And I love that you are
the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night. And it's not because I'm
lonely, and it's not because it's New Year's Eve. I came here tonight because when you
realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your
life to start as soon as possible.
