Late-Night Conversation

Did I ever tell you how she and I started dating?
You might have, but I don't remember...
It was after I had my bicycle accident, and she took care of me.
Oh yeah, you fell in love with your nurse, that Farrah Fawcett thing.
What did you just say?
Nothing...
Farrah Fawcett, did you just say Farrah Fawcett?
Yes...I don't know why I just said that, I know it's not the right name.
The Charlie's Angels syndrome?
Shut up, my brain is tired, it's filling in the wrong words. I don't know why Farrah Fawcett came into my head; I don't even know if the real name is similar to that, because I can't remember the right name!
I know what you're talking about, but I can't remember the name now either.
Amelia Earhart!
No silly, that's not even close.
I know, my brain is just spitting out names at random now.
Well, that's not helping.
If only we were at my house, we could look it up on the internet.
I know, I can look it up!
How can you look it up without an internet connection?
In the olden days, we used these things called books.
You're not going to find it in a book, you don't have enough information, don't be ridiculous.
It will be in one of these books, these are great books, do you remember where the phrase comes from?
It's something about war. A nurse, in war, tending soldiers, they think they're in love with her....
Okay....I'll find it..... ..... ....
[it is not found]
[helpless flipping of pages]
[random readings of irrelevant facts]

Florence Nightingale!!!!
You're right, that's it!
I don't know where it came from; it just popped into my head once I stopped trying to remember.
Her name starts with "F", that must be where your guess came from. I'll read you her biography.
You're looking at her biography?!
No, I was just thumbing randomly through the biographies.
I told you you wouldn't be able to find it in your book.
[biography is read aloud]...
...played by Farrah Fawcett.
Really?
Well, no.
