They see each other again after 5 years, and still don't get along. Another 6 years go by, Harry has been married but is getting divorced, and Sally just broke up with her boyfriend of 6 years. This time, they become friends, but their friendship intensifies, and they wind up having sex, which does indeed get in the way of their friendship.

Continuity mistake: During the first car ride scene Harry is spitting the seeds out the window. One of the shots shown of the car from the outside shows the window still up after he has rolled it down.

Sally Albright: At least I got the apartment.
Harry Burns: That's what everyone says. But, really, what's so hard about finding an apartment? What you do is look in the obituary section. You see who died, find out where they lived, and tip the doorman. What they could do to make it easier is combine the two. You know, Mr. Kline died yesterday, leaving behind a wife, two children, and a spacious three bedroom apartment with a wood burning fireplace.
