The Martian - Andy Weir

"What the fuck is ´Project Elrond`?" Annie asked

"I had to make something up", Venkat said.

"So you came up with `Elrond`?" Annie pressed.

"Because it´s a secret meeting?" Mitch guessed. "The e-mail said I couldn´t tell my assistent."

"I´ll explain everything once Teddy arrives." Venkat said.

"Why does `Elrond` mean `secret meeting`?" Annie asked.

"Are we going to make a momentous decision?" Bruge Ng asked.

"Exactly," Venkat said.

"How did you know that?" Annie asked, getting annoyed.

""Elrond", Bruce said. "The Council of Elrond. From Lord of the Rings. It´s the meeting where they decide to destroy the One Ring."

"Jesus," Annie said. "None of you got laid in high school, did you?"


While watching this particular scene in the movie, am I the only one who expects Sean Bean, who plays the character of Mitch, to turn into Boromir and deliver one of his lines. I´m just curious.
