Perf-orated Edges

Perfect spot outside the Mexican place. Perfect weather. Sweet outdoor movie (The Usual Suspects). We got in the car and literally heard just the final pitch, "and this one's over."

By the way, this was only my second time seeing Usual Suspects all the way through, and I couldn't help notice three references to Splash:

At beginning of US, it says "last night" on the screen to tell you when it's taking place. S did something similar, showing "this morning."

Then you had the mention of Cape Cod inside a NYC taxi in both movies.

Then toward the end of US, Nick Tortelli says there's a system to the clutter on his desk, just as Tom Hanks does in Splash.

We're also talking about two movies in which (spoiler alert) a mythical character turns out to be real. And both have boats. And all the letters in the word Splash can be found in The Usual Suspects! I'm convinced something's going on here...I have to solve the mystery!

The greatest trick the mermaid ever pulled was convincing the world she didn't exist.
Never realized that Splash and The Usual Suspects had a connection. Sounds like one of those Wizard of Oz/Dark Side of the Moon things...
