[[DeadpanSnarker Harry Burns]] (Crystal) and [[WideEyedIdealist Sally Albright]] (Ryan) first meet in 1977, when they share a drive from college in Chicago to UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity. He's seeing her friend Amanda and comes on to her; she turns him down but says they can be friends. He points out that the guy friend will always be attracted to the female friend and want to sleep with her, thus they decide not to be friends. They revisit the question five years later when they happen to find themselves sharing an airline flight, once again resolving that no, they cannot.

* BechdelTest : Fails, rather spectacularly. Although on the [[WordOfGod commentary track]], Creator/RobReiner does point out that the main cast talks about things other than relationships, they just don't turn on the cameras during those conversations.

** Earlier, when Sally tells Alice and Marie that she and Joe have broken up, Marie's response is, "You mean Joe's available?"

They revisit the question five years later when they are both taken and run into each other in an airport, once again resolving that no, they cannot.

Five years later, they re-meet after having been dumped by their other halves, and become friends. They resolve to [[JustFriends just be friends]]... for most of the movie they ''succeed'' in this. Their relationship has little sexual tension, and is punctuated by extended conversations where they discuss love, friendship, scatological humor and ''Film/{{Casablanca}}''. The {{Aesop}} seems to be that people really [[ThePowerOfFriendship need friendships]]- the nonsexual comfort zone Harry and Sally establish with each other is what allows them to move on from their failed relationships. To each other, in case you haven't [[ForegoneConclusion figured that out yet]].
