    • Jane: We were rubbish together, weren't we?
      Steve: Fatal Attraction meets Predator.

      Steve is referring to the two movies Fatal Attraction (1987), where a woman stalks a married man and stops at nothing to have him for herself, and Predator (also 1987), which is about a vicious alien hunting men on earth for sport.
