* HeroicBSOD: The lavatory scene was Lisa's moment of defeat. It is only when Rippner says "thank for the quickie" that he [[NiceJobFixingItVillain unintentionally brings back Lisa's determination to stop him]] [[spoiler: by invoking the memory of her rape, which she promised herself she would never let happen again]]. The moment when Rippner gets scolded by the Older Flight Attendant while leaving the lavatory is when [[spoiler:Lisa is (off-screen) getting the pen she will stab Rippner with]].
* HeroicBystander: Rebecca, the little girl sitting in front of Lisa and Rippner (and the only person on the plane who realizes that something is wrong with the two of them), gets her chance to be one towards the end of the film. [[spoiler: After Lisa stabs Rippner in the throat with a pen and starts to make a run for it, Rippner leaps up to follow her. Rebecca pushes her suitcase into the aisle, sending him spiraling to the ground. The temporary diversion buys Lisa some extra time to escape, and you have to admit that a little girl standing up to a professional killer is pretty heroic.]]

A 2005 PsychologicalThriller starring Creator/RachelMcAdams and Creator/CillianMurphy, and directed by Creator/WesCraven.

Mild-mannered hotel manager Lisa Reisert, on her way home from her grandmother's funeral, is seated for an overnight flight next to charming, affable UsefulNotes/{{Jack|TheRipper}}son [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Rippner]]. Over the course of the flight, Rippner reveals himself to be a PsychoForHire acutely interested in Lisa's career... especially with the Secretary of Homeland Security (and his family) staying at her hotel. Trapped in close proximity to Rippner and informed that one of his associates is holding her father (Creator/BrianCox) hostage, Lisa attempts to keep her father safe and stop Rippner's assassination plot.

* BrutalHonesty[=/=]BewareTheHonestOnes:
** Rippner claims that he has never lied to Lisa, and he expects Lisa to never lie to him in return, as it would not serve either of them. Lisa lies about her DrinkOrder (before realizing he's evil, and mostly just because he's coming on a bit too strong) and later attempts to thwart his plans twice through dishonesty (lying about writing in the self-help book, pretending to still talk on the phone when the phone lines die out, and then writing a message in the lavatory to try and expose Rippner's plans); with time running out, it boils down to him [[BerserkButton choking]] her for it. [[spoiler:By the end of the film, he tries to kill her for ruining his plans.]]

* SamaritanRelationshipStarter[=/=]SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan: This is not something Lisa had done for two years (thanks in part to her BrokenBird past), but she decides takes a chance with the seemingly nice guy who helped her out in line earlier and meets him at a bar. Coincidently, they even sit next to each other. Their interactions go swimmingly until their flight takes off, and she discovers that he is [[BeneathTheMask not so nice]].

* VillainsNeverLie[=/=]WillNotTellALie: Rippner is very clear that he has not lied to Lisa even once despite the hostile situation, and he is hurt that she does lie to him. However, he is in fact ''lying'' when he says this; he tells at least one lie to Lisa on the plane, which puts his entire not-lying status in question. Also, see NoNameGiven.
