I need a quote for the following situation:

I had sex with a friend of mine (we are really close) but we aren't together...in fact we were both drunk when we did it...I need a quote that would kinda neutralize the atmosphere in the relationship (its kinda tense)..We both want to remain 'just friends'....I came accross a quote that said something about sex always looming in the atmosphere of friendship..But i cant seem to find it again, this quote would be perfect...does anyone know the quote? or any other that might be appropiate?...would really appreciate help

I wonder if you're thinking of:
"Men and women can't be friends because the sex part always gets in the way."
~ Harry in “When Harry Met Sally”
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/When_Harry_Met_Sally
Quote:
Harry Burns: You realize of course that we could never be friends.
Sally Albright: Why not?
Harry Burns: What I'm saying is - and this is not a come-on in any way, shape or form - is that men and women can't be friends because the sex part always gets in the way.
Sally Albright: That's not true. I have a number of men friends and there is no sex involved.
Harry Burns: No you don't.
Sally Albright: Yes I do.
Harry Burns: No you don't.
Sally Albright: Yes I do.
Harry Burns: You only think you do.
Sally Albright: You say I'm having sex with these men without my knowledge?
Harry Burns: No, what I'm saying is they all WANT to have sex with you.
Sally Albright: They do not.
Harry Burns: Do too.
Sally Albright: They do not.
Harry Burns: Do too.
Sally Albright: How do you know?
Harry Burns: Because no man can be friends with a woman that he finds attractive. He always wants to have sex with her.
Sally Albright: So, you're saying that a man can be friends with a woman he finds unattractive?
Harry Burns: No. You pretty much want to nail 'em too.
Sally Albright: What if THEY don't want to have sex with YOU?
Harry Burns: Doesn't matter because the sex thing is already out there so the friendship is ultimately doomed and that is the end of the story.
Sally Albright: Well, I guess we're not going to be friends then.
Harry Burns: I guess not.
Sally Albright: That's too bad. You were the only person I knew in New York.
~ “When Harry Met Sally”

A man can go from being a lover to being a stranger in three moves flat but a woman under the guise of friendship will engage in acts of duplicity which come to light very much later. There are different species of self-justification.
~ Anita Brookner

In the sex-war thoughtlessness is the weapon of the male, vindictiveness of the female.
~ Cyril Connolly, The Unquiet Grave, 1944

"There are three things men can do with women: love them, suffer for them, or turn them into literature."
~ Stephen Stills

"Men always want to be a woman's first love - women like to be a man's last romance."
~ Oscar Wilde

Throwing a quote at her won't fix the situation. You say you are close friends, and you want to stay that way, right? I say...why? The difference between a girl friend and best friend is basically this - you get to have sex with your girl friend. She's obviously willing to sleep with you, and you seem to care enough about her to ask a bunch of people online about the best way to not hurt her feelings. I say go with it. BUT I know thats not the help you wanted, so I'll include a play by play of how to get her back to the "friend zone"

1) Take 100% of the blame. Even if there is no blame to be had, invent some. Whatever happened, it was your fault. even if she drugged you and you had no idea what was going on. Find a way to make it your fault. Then apologize.

2) Tell her exactly what you want. You want her to be you're friend. Explain that the reason you do not want to get involved in a romantic relationship is simply that the two of you are already such good friends, it just gets a little awkward.

3) At this point she will start to feel alienated, like you don't like her at all any more. After all, the oldest quote here is "...but can we still be friends?" The answer of course is always no, and the person who asks always KNOWS that the answer is no. its just a way to avoid guilt. Make it a point to call her to hang out. Make her pay her own way.

4) If she can't take no for an answer, start dating other girls. Call an escort agency if nessisary. Just make it clear that you are not thinking of her in that way

5) I probably should have put this at #1, but don't have sex with her again (unless she's cool with that whole "friends with benefits" thing)

If all else fails, tell her she needs to get checked for some kind of STD because you just found out you had it, and she was the last person you slept with. If you really are close friends, she will "dump" you, but not abandon you. If she still pursues a romantic relationship, WITH the std warning, she is in love with you. If you do not feel the same. RUN!
