The following poem was used by Quentin Tarantino in Death Proof. Character Stuntman Mike recites the last bit in bold, to get a lapdance from character Arlene, played by Vanessa Ferlito.

  • Character Jungle Julia announces on the radio, that anyone who recites the poem to Arlene in a bar and buys her a drink, gets a lapdance.
  • This same poem was originally used as an activation signal for sleeper agents in the 1977 espionage film Telefon starring Charles Bronson.

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening
by Robert Frost

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village, though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound's the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.
The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
