July 12th marked the 25th anniversary of the classic rom-com “When Harry Met Sally” (July 21 marks the date it opened in wide release). It was also the 25th anniversary of everyone’s favorite go-to movie quote, “I’ll have what she’s having.”
It’s probably the most famous line in a movie full of famous lines, made more amazing considering that neither Billy Crystal nor Meg Ryan said it. The punchline is actually delivered by director Rob Reiner’s mother, in possibly the most flawless one-off line reading in history.
Just how influential is that line? Well, it’s been an inspiration for dozens of TV show writers since the film came out, as evidenced by this supercut of shows referencing, paying tribute to, or parodying it. Everything from “The Muppet Show” to “One Tree Hill” to “Family Guy” put their own unique (or sometimes not-so-unique) spins on the line, with some shows, like “The Mindy Project,” quoting it more than once (“I’ll have whatever gave her an orgasm” says Danny Castellano).
So check out the supercut, tell us your favorites, and let us know of any we missed!
