"I know about you and Thelma Rice. I know everything, it's all here. You didn't even have the decency to hide the evidence, you just threw it in a drawer. Hotels, motels. You couldn't even pay cash like a normal philanderer. You charged everything. I mean look at this — flowers, look at all these flowers that you bought her! And you occasionally brought me home a bunch of wilted zinnias."
9. Also from "Heartburn": Streep and Nicholson are bickering over a chicken leg during a picnic with friends.
Streep: "You know, this is not your mother's house where you do something like that and everybody thinks it's cute."
Nicholson: "If it's not my mother's house, then why are you talking to me like I'm your kid?"
10. From 2009's "Julie & Julia," which Ephron wrote and directed. Amy Adams, as blogger Julie Powell, explains why the Julia Child cookbook has been important to her since childhood.
"When I was 8, my father's boss came to dinner and it was a really big deal. And my mother made boeuf bourguignon. But it wasn't just boeuf bourguignon. It was Julia's boeuf bourguignon. And it was like she was there, like Julia was there in the room on our side, like some great, big, good fairy. And everything was going to be all right."
