Billy Crystal on 'The Daily Show'Billy Crystal was on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central), where he told a story about the filming of Meg Ryan's famous orgasm scene in the movie 'When Harry Met Sally.'

Apparently, Ryan was nervous about making such personal noises in front of a bunch of crew and extras she didn't know. So director Rob Reiner, "a big bear of a man" as Crystal described him, decided to show her how to do it.

"So Reiner proceeds to have an orgasm that Mighty Joe Young would have," Crystal explained to Jon Stewart. "Oh it's huge, he's pounding the table. The little spice balls are flying off pickles."

"He's screaming and yelling. He's sweating -- and, it's gruesome, actually. So he has this gigantic release and finishes and says 'That's what I want,' and then Meg goes on and gives this great performance."

But here's the catch: The older woman who utters the classic line "I'll have what she's having" after Ryan's character finishes her business was Reiner's mother, Estelle.

So after Reiner was done with his performance, he turned to Crystal and lamented the fact that he "just had an orgasm in front of my mother."
