Final Destination 3 picture

Easter egg: On the 'choose their fate' version of the movie, straight after Ashlyn says 'oh a few degrees won't hurt' you get asked which temperature she should change it to (73 degrees or 76 degrees) if you choose 76 degrees, you see Ashlyn and Ashley's alternate death. Instead of being incinerated, the pair are electrocuted, as Ashlyn manages to get out of her tanning bed before the wood shelf jams the pair in, instead she is hit in the head (and knocked unconscious) by the wooden shelf. She later awakens, frees the wood from Ashley's bed, and quotes "I got you" and grabs Ashley's hand, but the glass of the bed underneath Ashley breaks, and she falls into the wiring of the tanning bed, electrocuting them both.
