Wheee, I got the reference in today's PvP!

I wonder how many people get the movie reference in today's PvP. (If you haven't been reading, they've been doing a crossover with a strip called Ugly Hill, in which all the characters are monsters; Skull, the PvP office troll, has awoken to find himself living in Ugly Hill and working alongside monster versions of his coworkers.) That's the monster version of Francis in today's strip, noticing the penny in Skull's bellybutton. Skull looks at the penny, and everything begins to fade away...

It's a reference to Somewhere in Time, a 1980 movie starring Christopher Reeve as Richard Collier, a man who uses self-hypnosis to travel back in time to 1912 to meet a woman whose portrait he has fallen in love with. After meeting her and having an adventure with her, near the end of the movie he finds something in his pocket and looks at it. It's a penny minted in 1979. The sight of an object from his own time breaks the spell and forces Richard to return to the present.
