Some memorable scenes from the films of Nora Ephron, who died Tuesday at age 71:

“When Harry Met Sally” (1989): The scene in Katz’s Delicatessen when Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan’s characters discuss fake orgasms and Ryan’s character launches into an over-the-top version, prompting a nearby woman (played by director Rob Reiner’s mother) to deadpan, “I’ll have what she’s having.”


“Sleepless in Seattle” (1993): The moment when Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan’s characters meet atop the Empire State Building for the first time. Ryan’s character convinces an elevator operator to take her to the top after the observation deck has closed.


“Michael” (1996): While most of the movie was forgettable, John Travolta added another memorable dance scene to his credits when he lured all the women in a bar to groove with him to Aretha Franklin’s “Chain of Fools.”


“You’ve Got Mail” (1998): The moment when Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan’s star-crossed characters meet at New York’s Riverside Park. She tells him, “I wanted it to be you.”


“Julie & Julia” (2009): The scene in which Amy Adams’ Julie Powell has to cook live lobsters for the first time, complaining, “I have to murder and dismember a crustacean.”
