Steve describes the girl he meets as a "manic pixie dream girl." This is a term coined by film critic Nathan Rabin. It was inspired by Kirsten Dunst in the film 'Elizabethtown' and is defined as "that bubbly, shallow cinematic creature that exists solely in the fevered imaginations of sensitive writer-directors to teach broodingly soulful young men to embrace life and its infinite mysteries and adventures."
