We Are Alike Moments

Postby Geoff1975 » Sep 22, 2012 1:12 pm

In Pretty Woman, there's a balcony scene nicely in the exact middle of Act Two. Edward says, "I'm only halfway out." He also points out that he and Vivian both screw people for money. She maintains her rule not to kiss on the lips ("it's too personal"). What other "We are alike" moments have people found? Which have worked better than others?

My story has one character enamored with another. The moment when he discovers she's more than what he saw on the surface would be the perfect moment to make as one of these.
