Sleepless in Seattle
written by Nora Ephron, David S. Ward, & Jeff Arch

Suzy: Oh, it's like that movie.
Sam (Tom Hanks): What movie?
Suzy: An Affair to Remember, did you ever see it? Oh, god, Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr. Is it Karr or Kerr?
Sam: Karr.
Greg (Victor Garber): Kerr.
Suzy: Okay, she's going to meet him at the top of the Empire State Building, only she got hit by a taxi. And he waited and waited, and it was raining, I think. And then she's too proud to tell him that she's, uh, crippled. And he's too proud to find out why she doesn't come. But he comes to see her anyway, I forget why, but oh, oh, it's so great when he comes to see her, because he doesn't even notice that she doesn't get up to say hello. And he's very bitter and you think that he's just going to walk out the door and never know why she's just lying there, you know, with, on the couch, with the blanket over her shriveled legs and... (breaks down)
Jonah (Ross Malinger): Are you all right?
Greg: She's fine.
Suzy: And suddenly he goes...sold the...painting...(she's crying too hard to speak) and he, like, goes to the bedroom, and he looks, and he comes out, and he looks at her, and he kind-of, just, they know, and the hug and it's so...god, I love that movie.
Greg: That's a chick's movie.
Sam: I would say so.
