The notorious deli scene from “When Harry Met Sally” required some route which will have made director Rob Reiner blush.
In a 30th anniversary retrospective on the traditional romantic comedy, Reiner and stars Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal reminisced on the scene, during which Ryan’s Sally simulates an orgasm over lunch at Katz’s Delicatessen with Crystal’s Harry.
“We had the extras, the crew — a lot of people [in the deli while filming],” Reiner recalled to People. “My mother [Estelle Reiner] sitting there.”

“Rob kept giving me sounds, ‘More, aaauuuuhhnnnnnn!’ All in front of Estelle,” Ryan stated of filming the enduring second.
Estelle Reiner is the aged lady within the scene who ended it with the well-known line, “I’ll have what she’s having.”
That quip, Rob says, must be credited to Crystal.

“Billy, he added the biggest laugh in the movie, which is the biggest laugh in any movie I’ve ever been involved with,” Reiner gushed. “‘I’ll have what she’s having.’ My mother says that line.”
