I Need to Read the Turn of the Screw

I'm thinking it might be time for me to pop Annie Hall into the DVD player again.

Annie: You know, you're so ego-centric that if I miss my therapy, you can only think of it in terms of how it affects you!...

Alvy: (sighing and turning to Annie after a digression) What do you mean, our sexual problem? I mean, I'm comparatively normal for a guy raised in Brooklyn.

Annie: OK, I'm very sorry. My sexual problem, OK? My sexual problem. Huh? (A man in front of them in line turns back to look at them, and then turns away.)

Alvy: (embarrassed) I never read that. That was, that was Henry James, right? Novel, huh, the sequel to The Turn of the Screw, 'My Sexual Problem'?
