John and Mary meet in a singles bar, sleep together, and spend the next day getting to know each other.
The magazine in Mary's apartment which John is seen reading is the quarterly British film magazine "Sight And Sound"; it is the Winter 1968/9 issue. Whilst this was the current issue at the time of filming, it is perhaps not a coincidence that it contains a detailed and highly laudatory article about "Rosemary's Baby", starring Mia Farrow, and a rave review of "Bullitt", directed by Peter Yates.
The great thing is, if men can cook at all, women think it's wonderful.
Mary: Well, it is.
John: No, it's not. It's really a legend. Like sex and black men.
