RIP Nora Ephron

Pagi ini, twitter diramaikan dengan mention RIP Nora Ephron. Awalnya gue tidak tahu dia siapa. Sampai kemudian ada akun yang menyebut tentang film ‘When Harry Meet Sally’, ‘Julia & Julie’, dan film ‘You’ve Got Mail’.

Nah, langsung nih gue ngeh. Yang terakhir itu adalah film favorit gue jaman nonton masih pake 2 keping VCD. Gue inget betul deh adegan-adegan Meg Ryan selalu menunggu datangnya logo You’ve Got Mail! muncul di layar komputernya. Berharap-harap si lelaki pujaan hati yang mengirimkan pesan manis. Ah, jadi pengen nonton lagi.

Singkat kata dan cerita, gue pun kemudian melacak berita-berita tentang Mrs. Nora ini. Alhasil gue menemukan bahwa dia ini penulis skenario dan sutradara yang banyak melahirkan film drama romantis, termasuk 3 judul di atas. Tentu saja, film romantis selalu datang dengan quotes super karya penulisnya yang notabene adalah si Nora juga.

Dan berikut gue hadirkan beberapa quotes beliau yang bikin hati teduh teduh terharu.

“When you’re attracted to someone, it just means that your subconscious is attracted to their subconscious, subconsciously. So what we think of as fate is just two neuroses knowing that they are a perfect match.”
— David Hyde Pierce to Meg Ryan in “Sleepless in Seattle”

“I always read the last page of a book first so that if I die before I finish I’ll know how it turned out.”
— Billy Crystal to Meg Ryan in “When Harry Met Sally”

“The whole purpose of places like Starbucks is for people with no decision-making ability whatsoever to make six decisions just to buy one cup of coffee. Short, tall, light, dark, caf, decaf, low-fat, non-fat, etc. So people who don’t know what the hell they’re doing or who on earth they are can, for only $2.95, get not just a cup of coffee but an absolutely defining sense of self.
— Tom Hanks in “You’ve Got Mail”

“I remember in high school her saying,
‘Now what’d you want to take that science class for? There’s no girls in that science class. You take home ec, why don’t you? That’s the way to meet the nice boys.’
‘Mom,’ I said,
”There ain’t no boys in home ec. The boys are in the science class.'”
— Meryl Streep in “Silkwood”

“I love that you get cold when it’s 71 degrees out.
I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich.
I love that you get a little crinkle above your nose when you’re looking at me like I’m nuts.
I love that after I spend the day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes.
And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night.
And it’s not because I’m lonely, and it’s not because it’s New Year’s Eve.
I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.”
— Billy Crystal to Meg Ryan in “When Harry Met Sally”
