For the last 5 issues or so this phrase has been popping up with some regularity... what exactly does it mean and is there some sort of office pool on who can get it into the magazine the most times?

It's the first encounter between two characters who'll later go on to be a romantic couple. I first noticed Roger Ebert using it, but don't know if he coined it.

I am fairly certain they used it in the J.J. Abrams article in reference to someone that wasn't his wife... if that's the context it is used in, it makes it all sound very casting couch.
