상행 '삐리리' 하행 '딩딩딩'

지하철 도착을 알리는 신호음을 듣고 급하게 뛰어갔다가 반대방향 열차임을 알고 허탈한 경험이 누구나 있을 것이다. 그런데 지하철 도착 신호음이 열차 방향에 따라 다르다는 사실을 아는 사람은 많지 않다.

서울지하철 1,3,4 호선의 상선방면은 예전부터 사용하던 연속음인 '삐리리리~'이고 하선방면은 단속음인 '딩딩딩딩~'이다. 순환선인 2호선의 경우 시계방향으로 도는 내선방면은 '삐리리리~'이고, 반대방향인 회선이 '딩딩딩딩~'이다. 서울지하철공사는 승객편의를 위해 2000년 12월부터 신호음을 분리하여 방송하고 있다.

  • Harvey: So did you get it done, sport?
  • Jack: He was already dead. I wanted to. I wanted to kill him. But... I just couldn't.
  • Harvey: Oh, you're a better man than me, sport. So the great game goes on with or without us.
  • Jack: Without us, I guess. Think we made a difference, harvey, any difference at all?
  • Harvey: God, I hope so, sport. No, nowadays people have short memories. They forget there was a time when the goths were at the gate. You and me, kid -- we put our warm bodies on the firing line, and we turned 'em back.
  • Jack: You truly believe that?
  • Harvey: You bet I believe it. Something like the cold war has to have a moral, otherwise what was it all about?
  • Jack: It was about the good guys beating the bad guys... But we sure screwed up along the way.
  • Harvey: Yeah, but we screwed up a lot less than they did, which is why we won. Yeah, the -- the soviet union wasn't a country. It was a -- it was a metaphor for an idea that looked good on the drawing board, but in practice, it was flawed. And let me tell you somethin'. A metaphor is a lot harder to slay than a country, and we clobbered them in the end.
  • Jack: Yeah.
  • Harvey: You got to remember what it was all about. It was always black and white, kid -- right versus wrong. There were good guys, and there were bad guys.
  • Jack: Which side were we again, harvey?
  • Harvey: We won, didn't we?

연은 우리를 붙잡는다. 채 하늘로 날아가지 못하고, 나무에 차이고 걸려서 한없이 흔들리면서. 그리하여, 어리석은 생이 다 지나가서야 지난해 띄워 보낸 연을 기억한다. 도망쳐온 저 자신을 책하며, 손을 뻗어보지만, 끊어진 애먼 활벌잇줄만이 하릴없이 흩날리고 있을 뿐….
