Subtlety, thy name is Oliver Stone

I just finished watching The Doors last night on DVD for the first time. Director Oliver Stone also wrote the film along with Randall Jahnson. The first lines right after the opening credits end is an exchange between Jim Morrison (Val Kilmer) and a girl named Pamela Courson (Meg Ryan), whom he has followed from the beach to her second floor balcony by climbing up a tree.
Pamela: "Hi."

Jim: "Hi."

Pamela: "You got a problem with doors?"

Jim: "Waste of time."

I believe that piece of foreshadowing is now the second man-made object than can be seen from space.
