In Deadpool 2 (2018), Cable uses the last charge on his time-traveling device, which he needed for returning to his family:

Deadpool: What's with the creepy, dirty hobo bear?

Cable: It's my daughter's teddy bear. Her name's Hope.

Cable straps Vanessa's token in front of Deadpool's heart.

Deadpool: Well...What are you doing? Somebody swiped right.

Cable puts the token on Wade

Why did he say "Somebody swiped right"?

1 Answer 1


When Cable is slipping the token, Deadpool is suggesting (not for the first time) that Cable is attracted to him.

The "swipe right" comes from the dating app "Tinder":

Tinder is a location-based social search mobile app that allows users to like (swipe right) or dislike (swipe left) other users and allows users to chat if both parties liked each other in the app (a "match").
