    Just thinking about the comparative between 'Candyman' urban legend;The purported legend about saying his name five times

    and the triplets used within the JBR rn.
    The 'visible' triplets of phrase ....Don't, John, she dies.....

    the urban legend, expressed in pop culture and vernacular ....
    with the 'catch phrase:



    CANDYMAN , CANDYMAN, CANDYMAN ............

    Lol I saw that movie cause my name is Candi and I like horror movies - but I can say without a doubt that J or P never saw that movie...it sucked and they just don't seem the type to rent that type of movie. SPEED on the other hand seems like a movie Patsy would see...maybe even commercials or movie previews in the theatre showed Dennis Hopper saying to Keanu "Don't try to grow a brain John"...she saw a commercial or the actual movie I would bet.
