92 Degrees Fahrenheit

I have always wanted to know where the sound bite in the beginning of the song "92 Degrees" by Siouxsie and the Banshees came from. While I was reading the comments posted for the video, I learned that it came from the movie "It Came from Outer Space" written by Ray Bradbury. As I continued to read more comments I learned that the line of dialogue is very similar to a Ray Bradbury short story titled "Shopping For Death". So I search for Shopping For Death and found out that Alfred Hitchcock used it for one of his episodes of "Alfred Hitchcock Presents". Siouxie + Ray Bradbury + Alfred Hitchcock = an awesome combination.
