What better way to celebrate When Harry Met Sally's 30th birthday than by performing a loud, fake orgasm in a restaurant full of people?

In honor of the beloved rom-com – released 30 years ago this summer – Katz & # 39; s Deli in New York is organizing an unusual contest on July 12, the original release date of the film.

Very brave – and unrestrained – participants can compete to do the best re-enactment of Sally & # 39; s famous, counterfeit orgasm, in the same restaurant where actress Meg Ryan was on the show three decades ago.

The scene in question is one of the most famous of the 1989 Nora Ephron film.

When Billy Crystal & # 39; s character Harry insists that no woman has ever faked an orgasm with him – insisting that he could tell it – Meg & # 39; s character Sally proves him to be unequal by over a minute of loud to moan at a table in the busy restaurant, with everyone's attention in it.

According to Forbes, On July 12, Katz & # 39; s Delicatessen welcomes fans to try their luck in a scene competition, where they can sit in the same place as Meg and try to get everyone what they want.

In February, director Rob Reiner shared some stories behind the scenes and surprising facts about filming – including that Meg started to play a bit more calmly during the first few takes during that famous scene.

& # 39; The first few times she was not as involved as she was when we finally had it, & # 39; said Reiner Entertainment per week.

& # 39; She was nervous, & # 39; he went on. & # 39; for extra & # 39; s and the crew and everything, and you have to pretend you have an orgasm for everyone!

& # 39; The first few times she did it half-heartedly. I kept saying, "No, you really have to go after it, you have to do it completely."

Of course the rest – including Reiner & # 39; s own mother who makes sense, & # 39; I will have what she has & # 39; – history.

The director also gave some other fun facts about the film, and recalled how the Pictionary party scene was improvised with Harry, Sally, Marie, and Jess.

In fact, & # 39; baby fish mouth & # 39; not even in the script.

& # 39; I (told Meg), & # 39; Do what you want to do & # 39;, & # 39; Reiner said, indicating that he was only instructing her to & # 39; baby talk & # 39; to draw.

& # 39; There was nothing in the script; we just asked her, "How would you convey baby talk?" he said.

Her final drawing was & # 39; so perfectly unclear! & # 39; that it is no wonder that Jess (played by Bruno Kirby) suspected that she had the invented sentence & # 39; mouth babyfish & # 39; signed.

In the meantime, Sally's super-detailed apple pie order while road tripping with Harry was completely in the script – and a realistic order by writer Nora Ephron.

Ephron and Reiner had lunch before filming the scene when Ephron ordered just like Sally, and amazed Reiner. He insisted that they put it in the script.
