Fridge: Rosemary's Baby

Fridge Brilliance
  • In the novel, Rosemary finds that during her pregnancy, putting even a tiny bit of salt on her food makes her so nauseated that she can't eat it. Salt is known as a symbol of good and protection against demons and other evil supernatural forces in many of the world's religious traditions, including Christianity.
    • This may also be why eating the chicken heart makes her sick when other raw meat does not. Chickens are traditionally regarded as symbols of goodness and the Resurrection, and their presence repels demons.
  • The miniseries debuts on May 11, Mother's Day.
