Pretty Woman

Trivia: The scene where Edward offers Viv the necklace and shuts the box on her fingers wasn't scripted - Richard Gere (Edward) just did it for a laugh. You can tell, because when he does it, Julia Roberts (Viv) laughs and looks up and around (ie. at the film crew) - in the context of that scene there wasn't anyone there for her to look at.
