When Harry Met Sally... is a 1989 film written by Nora Ephron, and directed by Rob Reiner. The romantic comedy stars Billy Crystal as Harry and Meg Ryan as Sally. The film follows the relationship of Harry and Sally from the time they meet on a shared car ride fom the University of Chicago to New York through their many years of chance encounters leading to friendship, and more in New York City.

The film revolves around the question: "Can men and women ever truly be friends?" It popularized the term "high maintenance" as applied to individuals who are difficult to please.

In early 2004, the film was adapted for the stage in a Theatre Royal Haymarket production starring Luke Perry and Alyson Hannigan and also Molly Ringwald and Michael Landes.

The film is best known for a scene with the two title characters having lunch in a diner. They are arguing about a man's ability to recognize when a woman is faking an orgasm (a largely-improv scene expanded upon at the last moment when originally shooting). Sally claims men can't tell the difference, and to prove her point, she vividly (but fully clothed) demonstrates the skill as other diners watch. The scene ends with Sally casually returning to her meal as a nearby patron, played by Reiner's mother, places her order: "I'll have what she's having."

This scene, filmed at Katz's Deli in New York, was reportedly shot dozens of times, if apparently only for the amusement of the male camera crew, with Meg Ryan's character acting it out each time.
