The Hitchhiker is a minor character in the film Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter. She is the 24th victim of Jason Voorhees. She is the only character to die while food is in her mouth.
In the hitchhiker's only appearance in the film, we see her on the side the road, waiting for a passing car. She holds up her sign which reads Peace and Love in rainbow colors at one passing motorist, which drives by without noticing, causing the hitchhiker to flip him off and turn her sign around to reveal a yellow background with the words "Fuck You". Another car soon comes down the road with six teenagers in it, and stops briefly. Samantha decides that they should pick her up but Paul says that there's not enough room in the car for her to sit in so they decide not to pick her up, and one of them shouts "Hey, honey, you got a sister?" causing the hitchhiker to respond by turning the sign which at the back of it says "Fuck You" and flipping them off. After doing so, the hitchhiker goes back to her backpack and pulls out a banana for a snack. She hadn't even finished her first bite when Jason Voorhees appeared and stabbed her in the neck and the banana squeezed out of its rinds by her hand as she dies.
