Best New Years Eve Movie Scene?

It’s scenes like this from When Harry Met Sally that set impossibly high expectations for New Years Eve. Billy Crystal’s character has used up every last excuse and has almost struck it out with Meg Ryan. But then he shows up at the last minute to sweep her off of her feet.

Honestly now, what woman could resist a speech like this?

I love that you get cold when it’s seventy-one degrees out.
I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich.
I love that you get a little crinkle above your nose when you’re lookin’ at me like I’m nuts.
I love that after I spend the day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes.
And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night.
And it’s not because I’m lonely.
And it’s not because it’s New Year’s Eve.
I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.
