The Godfather in You’ve Got Mail 

The Godfather is the I-ching. The Godfather is the sum of all wisdom. The Godfather is the answer to any question. What should I pack for my summer vacation? “Leave the gun, take the cannoli.” What day of the week is it? “Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Wednesday.”

I hear nothing, not even a sound on the streets of New York. Just the beat of my own heart. I have mail - from you.

Notes

"Meg is very smart. I always feel as if I have to be on my toes around Meg… She’s not a diva although quite frankly she has her professional responsibility very much together. I think, in the best of all ways, we’re absolute peers and absolute friends but she’s constantly challenging me by the nature of how she does her job." -Tom Hanks

"A while back, I was at a dinner, and we were all talking about art. What is art? Someone said art is whatever it is that makes you feel less alone. If this is true, then Tom is art. He makes me feel less alone. I imagine he makes a lot of people feel this way. He keeps our best selves, our dream selves, excellent company." -Meg Ryan

Notes

When you read a book as a child, it becomes a part of your identity in a way that no other reading in your whole life does.

me re-enacting my favourite movie scenes to friends

It’s from ‘The Godfather’! Sorry, it’s from ‘The Godfather’. It’s when the… uh, when the movie producer realizes that Tom Hagen is an emissary of Vito Corleone. It’s just before the horse’s head ends up in the bed with all the bloody sheets, you know, wakes up and it’s… ‘AAHH! AAAHH! AAAHH! AAAHH!’…never mind.

What will NY152 say today, I wonder. I turn on my computer. I wait impatiently as it connects. I go online, and my breath catches in my chest until I hear three little words: You’ve got mail. I hear nothing. Not even a sound on the streets of New York, just the beating of my own heart. I have mail. From you.

You’ve Got Mail (1998)

Sometimes I wonder…if I hadn’t been Fox Books and you hadn’t been The Shop Around the Corner and you and I had just, you know, met…

Notes

Confession: I have read Pride and Prejudice about 200 times. I get lost in the language–words like ‘thither’, ‘mischance’, ‘felicity’. I’m always in agony over whether Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy are really going to get together. Read it – I know you’ll love it!
