Favourite movie quote:
Shel? Sheldon? No, no, you did not have great sex with Sheldon… A Sheldon can do your income taxes, if you need a root canal, Sheldon’s your man… but humpin’ and pumpin’ is not Sheldon’s strong suit. It’s the name. ‘Do it to me Sheldon, you’re an animal Sheldon, ride me big Shel-don.’ Doesn’t work.
- Harry Burns (Billy Crystal) in WHEN HARRY MET SALLY.
