When Harry Met Sally

Continuity mistake: When Harry and Sally are walking to the museum, telling their stories about their sex dreams, Sally does not have a brooch anywhere on her blazer. However, when they are in the museum, she suddenly has a round brooch on the left lapel of her jacket.

Continuity mistake: When Sally is faking her orgasm, the slice of meat on her sandwich changes the way it's folded over the bun between angles.

Continuity mistake: In the first deli on the way to New York, Sally slides the menu over the table and places it aligned with the border, very close to her. When the angle changes, it is skewed and several inches away and she is bringing it close again.

Factual error: When Harry and Sally are driving away from the University of Chicago at the start of their road trip there is a long shot of them driving on Lake Shore Drive, but they are heading south towards the city with the lake on their left. If they were leaving the city from UofC, which is in Hyde Park, they would already be driving away from the city on Lake Shore Drive.

More quotes from When Harry Met Sally

Trivia: When they are in the museum and Harry says "For the rest of the day, we are going to talk like this...", the last thing he says is ad libbed. "But I would be proud to partake of your pecan pie." is not in the script. You can see Meg Ryan look off-camera at the director and say "Oh, no" but she continues with him. It's obvious that she wasn't expecting it. [This is confirmed as true in the documentary on the DVD.]
