You've Got Mail
written by Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron; from the play by Miklos Laszlo and screenplay by Samson Raphaelson

Kathleen: I like to start my notes to you as if we're already in the middle of a conversation. I pretend that we're the oldest and dearest friends -- as opposed to what we actually are, people who don't know each other's names and met in an "Over 30" chat room where we both claimed we'd never been before. What will NY152 say today, I wonder. I turn on my computer, I wait impatiently as it boots up. I go on line, and my breath catches in my chest until I hear three little words: You've got mail. I hear nothing, not even a sound on the streets of New York, just the beat of my own heart. I have mail. From you.

Kudos and much thanks go to Belinda for this monologue, it is very much appreciated. Thank you as well to Molly and Jennifer for corrections.
