Connections to Stephen King's Misery
I thought these were neat easter eggs
The pharmacist's name is Kathy Bates. (Just like the actress in Misery)
When the MC calls information, the operator gives Derry, Maine as an optional town. Derry/Maine is featured in Stephen King stories.
One of the characters mentioned at the end is named Annie, just like the character Annie Wilkes in Misery.
