George and Lynne are at the cinema. Lynne tells George that she's heard that this film is really scary. George says that he expects there to be lots of weird noises. Lynne asks what sort of noises and George replies popcorn munching, sweet unwrapping and drink slurping as he looks at an offending group.

George and Lynne have been known to frequent the 'pictures' in their time so this particular outing is of no surprise. From Lynne's comment, it can be assumed that this is a horror film and could be Christine or The Dead Zone. With these two films being based on Stephen King books, Lynne must know that they're of the horror genre. It can't be Jaws 3-D as no one is wearing their 3-D glasses, and if Lynne ever thought Psycho II or Twilight Zone : The Movie would be anything but scary then she needs to do a bit more research. All of this leads to the conclusion that the film they are about to see is David Cronenburg's Videodrome. Lynne is in for a shock.

George looks at the noisy group with a stern face. He just knows they will ruin the film for him. If we look again though it may actually be that George is jealous. Not only does he yearn for those carefree days when you could annoy someone in the cinema and not care, but also that a man of that age can be having such a good time with two women who are considerably younger than him. He must be a sly one. A man who is clearly in his seventies has snared two women with the offer of a strange film and all the sweets they can eat. Oh how George wishes he was with them, they look like they're having the time of their lives.
