Are you stickin' it to me?

My Woody viewing is patchy at best, but I've always held a soft spot for this film. This is probably my favorite moment in any Woody Allen film.



(I hope that's not a reference to the film that I'm forgetting...)

Me too. I saw it in the theater with a girl in grade 9, so funny and sweet.

Yeah, nice moment.
