[Quick Summary: A man & woman meet after college, become good friends over a decade, but are afraid to fall in love.]
In honor of Valentine's Day, I present dialogue that hints at feelings of love.
Sally and Marie go about getting the coffee ready.
SALLY: Emily's a little young for Harry, don't you think?
MARIE: She's young, but look at what she's done.
SALLY: What has she done? She makes desserts.
JESS: He's a good guy. You should talk to him, get to know him.
HARRY: He's too tall to talk to.
MARIE: Its' not just desserts. She makes 3500 chocolate mousse pies a week.
SALLY: Emily is AUNT EMILY?
JESS: He took us to a Mets game last week, it was great.
Harry: You all went to a Mets game?
JESS: Yeah, it was a last minute thing.
HARRY: But Sally hates baseball.
SALLY: Harry doesn't even like sweets.
WHAT I'VE LEARNED: We know Harry & Sally like each other because:
1) They disparage the other person's date; &
2) They're disturbed when they find that that date is more impressive than expected.
And no on-the-nose dialogue anywhere.
