    Default Cute... A film reference.

    Did anyone else catch the 'Silence of the Lambs' homage on page 24? ("Some fava beans and a nice Chianti...") It's nice to know that Hannibal Lector is the muse for the Spider. I doubt this will help, puzzle-wise. But it's cute nonetheless.

    So, do you think we should invest in night vision goggles to try to find some more clues??

    Yeah, all over that one. Also, did you notice the "vocab-u-lary" reference to the 5th element?

    Could you guys clarify this "vocab" thing a little more?

    Is it a "mul-ti-pass" reference? And if yes, I don't get it




    Thanks..!!

    Ok, there's a scene in the 5th element where Bruce Willis is getting interviewed by Chris Tucker. Since Willis only speakes in single word answers, Chris Tucker gets mad at him and says:

    Ruby: What was that? IT WAS BAD! It had nothing! NO FIRE! NO ENERGY! NO NOTHING! You know I have a show to run here, you know? Hmm? Hmm? And it must Pop, Pop, POP! So tomorrow from five to seven, will you please act like you have more than a two word vo-cab-u-lar-y? It must be green, okay? Okay?"

    He really emphasizes the syllables in VOCABULARY and he uses his fingers to make the " " when he says it.
