"Today is the birthday of several famous dead people, like John Lennon," she says, reflecting on today's date.
The woman's werewolf companion adds, "What about...John Entwistle of The Who?"

Searching on Wikipedia, the wolf begins to list other (rather obscure) famous, albeit deceased, people born on the ninth of October: "Robert de Sorbon, French theologian and founder of the Sorbonne...Archduke Leopold V of Austria...Charles Walgreen, American entrepreneur...Walter O'Malley...GO DODGERS!...Hiroaki Aoki, Founder of Benihana..."
CHK, CHK is the sound that is made when the woman cocks her shotgun.
"Okay, okay...you're un-jinxed!" the werewolf declares.
