What Does C C C aa, a a. C C C x, and C C C s T Mean in Mr. Harrigan’s Phone? – The Stephen King horror movie “Mr. Harrigan’s Phone,” which is available on Netflix, centers on Mr. John Harrigan, who hires Craig to read books for him. Craig is devastated when Harrigan passes away from heart disease. Before the burial, he continues to leave voicemails and text messages on the businessman’s phone while keeping it hidden beneath the latter’s coat.
Craig receives text messages from Harrigan’s phone, which is deeply buried with the latter’s body, shocking him significantly. We tried to interpret the text messages for you because they are so important to Craig and Harrigan’s connection, even after the latter’s death. Let’s discuss what we think of the texts!
The meanings of “C C C aa,” “a a. C C C x,” and “C C C s T”
Craig receives three texts from Harrigan’s phone following her death. The moment the businessman passes away, he read “C C C aa” on the phone. The following message, “a a. C C C x,” is received following the passing of Craig’s bully Kenny Yankovich. Following the death of Deane Whitmore, who accidentally killed his cherished teacher Ms. Hart, Craig is given the third letter, “C C C s T.” When Craig receives the third message, he puts the pieces together and realises that “C C C s T” stands for “Craig Stop,” indicating that Harrigan wishes to end their peculiar and vital relationship.
The third message may be Harrigan’s way of reminding Craig that for him to accept the old man’s death and move on from it, he needs to quit their unhealthy and unnatural connection. Harrigan may not want his reader to feel the sorrow of missing him, and the older man must be anticipating Craig to let go of him so that he, too, can finally embrace death and rest, as Craig suggests toward the end of the movie. The first two messages can be decrypted in the same way that Craig decodes the third message.
The first message, “C C C aa,” could be interpreted as “Craig ask anything,” expressing Harrigan’s desire to take care of him. Craig and Harrigan have supported one another as they have dealt with their shared sadness at the loss of their mother over the years. Such emotional support comes to an abrupt stop with Harrigan’s untimely demise. If a spirit of Harrigan is responsible for the texts, he might wish to reach out to Craig and lend a hand so that the latter doesn’t feel abandoned and emotionally alone. Since Craig gets the same response when he asks if Harrigan was the one to save him from Kenny by killing the bully, the second message, “a a. C C C x,” may be a confirmation of the first.
However, these are merely a few of the many potential explanations for the text messages, not their intended meaning. Stephen King gave an evasive answer to the question of whether Harrigan told Craig to stop all three times when the original novella’s admirer questioned him about it. He said, “Yes, Craig, Stop.” It’s also likely that “C C C aa,” “a a. C C C x,” and “C C C s T” all refer to “Craig stop,” denoting the same thing. The sound or scream Harrigan makes in response to Craig’s refusal to accept the businessman’s death and move on from him may be heard in the first two messages as “aa/a a.”
Craig must be preventing Harrigan from at last finding calm by talking to him nonstop and aspiring his requests to be granted. The texts might be Harrigan’s way of telling the youngster that he shouldn’t count on him to be there for him.
