Warning: Contains bad words

The original quote, with slang   What does it mean?

Harry: You realize of course that we could never be friends.
Sally: Why not?
Harry: 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.

Harry: You realize of course that we could never be friends.
Sally: Why not?
Harry: What I'm saying is - and I'm not saying this to make sexual advances toward you - is that men and women can't be friends because sex always causes trouble.

Harry: No man can be friends with a woman he finds attractive. He always wants to have sex with her.

Harry: No man can be friends with a woman he finds attractive. He always wants to have sex with her.

Sally: I don't have to take this crap from you.
Harry: If you're so over Joe, why aren't you seeing anyone?
Sally: I see people.
Harry: See people? Have you slept with one person since you broke up with Joe?
Sally: What the hell does that have to do with anything? That will prove I'm over Joe? Because I fuck somebody? Harry, you're gonna have to move back to New Jersey because you've slept with everybody in New York and I don't see that turning Helen into a faint memory for you. Besides, I will make love to somebody when it is making love. Not the way you do it like you're out for revenge or something.

Sally: I don't have to tolerate your rude behavior.
Harry: If you're not still in love with Joe (Sally's ex-boyfriend), why aren't you dating anyone?
Sally: I date people.
Harry: Date people? Have you slept with one person since you ended your relationship with Joe?
Sally: What the hell (emphasis) does that have to do with anything? That will prove I'm no longer in love with Joe? Because I have sex with somebody? Harry, you're going to have to move back to New Jersey because you've slept with everybody in New York and I don't see that turning Helen (Harry's ex-wife) into a faint memory for you. Besides, I will have sex with somebody when it is serious and part of the relationship. Not the way you do it like you're out for revenge or something.

Harry: With whom did you have this great sex?
Sally: I'm not going to tell you that.
Harry: Fine, don't tell me.
Sally: Shel Gordon.
Harry: Shel? Sheldon? No, no, you did not have great sex with Sheldon.
Sally: I did too.
Harry: No you didn't. A Sheldon can do your income taxes, if you need a root canal, Sheldon's your man... but humpin' and pumpin' is not Sheldon's strong suit. It's the name. 'Do it to me Sheldon, you're an animal Sheldon, ride me big Sheldon.' Doesn't work.

Harry: With whom did you have this great sex?
Sally: I'm not going to tell you that.
Harry: Okay, don't tell me.
Sally: Shel Gordon.
Harry: Shel? Sheldon? No, no, you did not have great sex with Sheldon.
Sally: I did too.
Harry: No you didn't. A Sheldon can do your income taxes, if you need a root canal. Sheldon is a good name for a tax accountant or dentist... but exciting sex is not Sheldon's strong skill. The name Sheldon is not sexy. 'Have sex with me Sheldon, you're an animal Sheldon, ride me big Sheldon.' It doesn't work.
