What about middles, you may ask. Middles are a problem. Middles are perhaps the major problem of contemporary life.”

Nora Ephron Quote: “A really great omelette has two whole eggs and one extra yolk, and by the way, the same thing goes for scrambled eggs. As for egg salad, here’s our recipe: boil eighteen eggs, peel them, and send six of the egg whites to friends in California who persist in thinking that egg whites matter in any way. Chop the remaining twelve eggs and six yolks coarsely with a knife, and add Hellmann’s mayonnaise and salt and pepper to taste.”

Because if I tell the story, I can get on with it.”

Nora Ephron Quote: “Love is homesickness.”
