Something had to give in this movie, and tragically it was Diane Keaton’s turtleneck – but more on that later.
In this movie, Diane is known for her t-necks. And with good reason. Look at how good she looks in that screenshot up there, ordering in French from her local deli in the Hamptons like one of Ina’s friends on Barefoot Contessa.
Jack Nicholson so astutely takes note of Diane’s penchant for t-necks and rudely asks “what’s with the turtlenecks?” In a response for the ages she answers: “I like them. I’ve always liked them and I’m just a turtleneck kind of gal.”
SAME DIANE. SAME.

However, for reasons unknown Jack Nicholson takes it upon himself to “liberate” Diane from her t-necks, and what follows is one of the most disturbing scenes in cinematic history.
Now take a deep breath. The worst is over.
The turtleneck curtain has not fallen for Diane, the patron saint of The T-Neck Files.
She goes back to what she knows and loves, first crying in a faithful gray t-neck, then telling off Jack Nicholson for destroying her old t-neck … in a new t-neck.
Thanks for sticking it to the man and always staying true to the t-neck Diane! We will forever worship you.
