In 1989, New York deli Katz’s became a global tourist spot in New York.
But it wasn’t for their signature pastrami sandwiches or their salt beef meals. No, the Lower East Side diner was the setting for the famous ‘I’ll have what she’s having’ scene in the romantic comedy, When Harry Met Sally.
The scene, in which Sally pretends to climax in the middle of a New York diner, became one of the most notable parts of the film. Now, fans of the moment can reenact it themselves on Social Media.
Last week, hundreds of competitors took part in a contest to celebrate the famous moment in the film. All they had to do was record their version of events and post the video online. Then, a group of influencers would vote on the best ‘performance’.
The line at the end, “I’ll have what she’s having”, was uttered by director Rob Reiner’s late mother, Estelle Reiner. Today, it ranks Number 33 in the American Film Institute’s list of all-time top 100 movie quotations.
Katz’s has been popular ever since it opened in 1888. The family-run business has enjoyed a steady business for more than 100 years, but sales exploded since the 1989 film and it has never been the same.
“It’s such a classic scene – and in a place that still exists!” explains Shauna Morgan, a 31-year-old Floridian who took part in the competition. While she confesses that it isn’t the first time she has faked an orgasm, it is the first time she has done so in such a public setting.
In When Harry Met Sally, Sally serves Harry some humble pie when he claims that no woman has ever ‘faked it’ with him in the bedroom.
“It’s just that all men are sure it never happened to them and most women at one time or another have done it, so you do the math,” Sally says.
