Secret Window -- Rosemary's Baby Homage

  1. Did anyone else catch the cool throwaway joke for "Rosemary's Baby" fans in
    "Secret Window"?

    It's in a scene near the end when Johnny Depp is freaking out at his cabin, and
    on the soundtrack we hear a bunch of dialogue from earlier in the film. In the
    midst of this, we hear Depp saying, "Sister found out about the bricked-up
    windows and the school had to be withdrawn from the competition!" This of
    course was not a line from earlier in SW and has nothing to do with SW, and
    would only make sense to someone who knows RB (either the film or the novel)
    really well.

    In RB, Rosemary overhears the Castavets having a nocturnal argument in the next
    apartment about the suicide/murder of Terry, but she's half asleep, and instead
    of being tipped off that they're up to no good, she incorporates the argument
    into a dream she's having where she's a little girl in Catholic school again,
    and she's come forward with information that has gotten her school disqualified
    from a beautiful-school contest.
