In the first of an ongoing series, filmmaker Nora Ephron says she wishes she'd written the soap opera scene in the movie, Tootsie, where Dustin Hoffman offers a revealing disclosure. Ephron also explains how she and others came up with the restaurant scene in the film, When Harry Met Sally. Hear Ephron and NPR's Susan Stamberg.
