In Nora Effron’s 1989 romantic comedy, When Harry Met Sally, the charmingly chauvinistic Harry Burns (Billy Crystal) casually divides all women into two groups: low maintenance and high maintenance. "What kind am I?" Sally inquires as they watch Casablanca together over the phone. “You're the worst kind," Harry responds. "You're high maintenance, but you think you’re low maintenance.” "Well," Sally retorts, "I just want things the way I want them."
"I know," Harry says, "high maintenance."
