* Saying Goodbye to Another Year *

One of my favorite movies is "When Harry Met Sally." There are so many great scenes and dialogue in it, but for tonight I must post a very appropriate one. It's at the New Year's Eve party. Harry just told Sally how much he loves her and wants to spend the rest of his life with her. After a little while, it's midnight and people begin to sing "Auld Lang Syne."  Following is their dialogue:

Harry:  My whole life I have never known what this song means.

Sally: I know exactly what you mean.

Harry: I mean, should old acquaintances be forgot. Does that mean we should forget old acquaintances, or does it mean if we do happen to forget them, we should remember them, which is not possible because we forgot them…..

Sally: Maybe you're just supposed to remember you forgot them, or something – anyway it's about old friends.

  1. It's a haunting old raise a cup to those forgotten and old times long gone. A sad kind of thing to sing at the start of a new year. Happy New Year to you and yours.

  2. Becky, what a great post! I loved that movie too!
    Happy New Year, Becky, I hope your year is filled with joy, happiness and many blessings!


  3. It has been a good last day here, Backy. Hope yours have been a good one, that tomorrow is even better. Happy New Year!

  4. I'm embarrassed to admit that all I remember about that movie is the deli scene.

    Happy New Year!

  5. Will gladly tuck 2011 behind & forge ahead to a beautiful new year.

    Happy New Year, sweet friend ~
    TTFN ~

  6. Love that movie, and the New Year's Eve scene.


  7. I love that movie, also, but another scene comes immediately to mind (tee-hee ;}

    Happy New Year to You!

  8. That is a great movie! I like the song but find it a sad one to ring in the New Year.

    May your new year be Happy and Bright.

  9. Oh Becky, I just saw that movie this week. Love Meg Ryan in anything. So cute.


  10. Happy New Year, Becky! May 2012 be your best year EVER!

  11. I have yet to see that movie! I will one day! The best to you for 2012.

  12. Happy New Year, Becky! I love this movie, too, and it's been forever since I've watched it. Guess maybe it's time to pull it out again. :)

  13. Thanks, everyone! I'll be back....

  14. Happy New Year, Becky! Write on . . . Auld Lang Syne.

  15. Hi Clara! Thanks so much and a very Happy New Year to you, too!

  16. I don't know what that song means either. Congrats on all of your new followers, Becky. You have tons compared to me, but it didn't help when I got mad and removed my widget, lol.

  17. I just saw this post and it really made me smile, as this is one of my favorite movies ever as well. And, I was thinking about this scene myself on New Year's Eve! I love the melancholy feeling of that song.

    A belated Happy New Year to you, Becky!!
