Psycho was on earlier and it was just the first name that came to mind.

In S1E11, Rory and Max are coming up with names to call each other outside of school. Max says he’ll call Rory “Rebecca” and Rory says she’ll call Max “Norman.” Max exclaims, “Norman? I look like a ‘Norman” to you?” Rory explains, “I’m sorry. ‘Psycho’ was on earlier, and it was just the first name that came to mind.”

“Psycho” is a 1960 horror film by Alfred Hitchcock. The story centers around a creepy motel manager named Norman Bates and his visitors.

One thought on “Psycho was on earlier and it was just the first name that came to mind.

  1. “Rebecca” is also a Hitchcock movie, based on the novel by Daphne du Maurier. It makes sense that when Max picks a Hitchcock movie name for Rory, she responds with a name from the last Hitchcock movie she watched.

    Interestingly, Rebecca and Norman are both the villains of their respective films (although Rebecca is technically the victim too).
