"It struck me that the movies had spent more than half a century saying, ‘They lived happily ever after’ and the following quarter century warning that they’ll be lucky to make it through the weekend. Possibly now we are entering a third era, in which the movies will be sounding a note of cautious optimism: You know, it just might work."
—Nora Ephron, in an interview with the Los Angeles Times regarding her screenplay for When Harry Met Sally
