In honoring Ephron, here are 10 of her best lines
Question of the Day
5. The last lines of “You’ve Got Mail,” after all the gesturing and posturing, the sabotage and mistaken identity, they meet in Riverside Park and Ryan finally realizes that Hanks has been her secret email pal all along.
Hanks: “Don’t cry, Shopgirl. Don’t cry.”
Ryan: “I wanted it to be you. I wanted it to be you so badly.”
6. From 1993’s “Sleepless in Seattle,” which Ephron also wrote and directed. Tom Hanks‘ son has called into a late-night talk radio show for him. As he explains what was so special about his late wife, Ryan is listening in her car across the country.
“Well, how long is your program? Well, it was a million tiny little things that, when you added them all up, they just meant we were supposed to be together. And I knew it. And I knew it the very first time I touched her. It was like coming home, only to no home I’d ever known. I was just taking her hand to help her out of a car and I knew. It was like … magic.
Hanks: “What is tiramisu?”
Reiner: “You’ll find out.”
Hanks: “Well, what is it?”
Reiner: “You’ll see.”
Hanks: “Some woman is gonna want me to do it to her and I’m not gonna know what it is!”
8. From “Heartburn” (1986), directed by Mike Nichols, which Ephron wrote based on her own marriage to Carl Bernstein. Meryl Streep confronts Jack Nicholson about the affair he’s been having with a drawer full of telltale receipts.
