Hitchcock ngotlhwI' ghaHlaw' Marc Okrand'e'.  DaH Hitchcock qIDDaj cha'DIch 
'oH <bo'Degh>'e'.  DIp <'ev> 'oH qID wa'DICH'e'.

Okrand must be a fan of Hitchcock.  {bo'Degh} is now his second Hitchcock 
pun (AFAIK);  the first was the noun {'ev} "area northwestward, area 
towards the northwest".

Aha!  I bet that's exactly why Hitchcock set the movie there.  <evil grin>
