Razorburn never seems to happen either...

In ER they do a spinectomy when the character needs to survive.

And and and...when somebody spontaneosly starts singing or dancing in any highly unlikely place everyone knows the steps and the words even the cleaning lady!!!!
And although they have never met before they obviously all went to the same choreography school.

When a killer is attacking a male/female couple the woman generally cowers in a corner while the guy tries to fight off the killer. Normally at the side of her is a vase or lamp that she could use to whack him over the head but she never does.

OOOhhhh yes,love that one.Also when she then,just at the crucial point of the fight,shouts:" Sheldon!Watch out!" when he´s looking in the right direction anyway,but because she says that,looks in a different direction and gets whacked over the head.Or,other possibility,she shrieks:"No,no!!!!" and hangs herself all over him,thereby neatly forestalling any chance he might have had of getting a fist in.
Also nice is,have you noticed that,when in a crucial situation,and somebody calls out:"Sheldon!Watch out!" the hero always knows exactly in which direction to look and also knows straight away whether to lunge or duck.

Except when fighting with some guy and the girl is in the background,then he gets dotted on the head,as beforementioned.

AND: When fighting with the hero,the baddies will always take turns beating up the hero.Noone ever comes from behind or trips him up or something.They all stay back till the hero has knocked the first one out,then queue up for the next one and so on.

AND: When the hero has managed to get himself caught,the baddie will always conveniently leave the room,or do something else,or turn his back,or talk,so that the hero has a chance of escaping.They will never shoot him straight away,even if there is a bomb ticking next door which is due to explode at any minute.

And if its an old haunted mansion and the heroine hears something she will always get out of bed wearing a wuite volumous nightie and start searching the house holding a cadelabra. Just as she reaches the top of this huge staircase a totally inexplicable wind blows all the candles out. But its OK, even though its pitch black outside she can still see enough to keep searching.

In the old westerns during a gunfight with the marauding indians one colt 45 will dispatch 23 indians and will only ever run out when he goes to shoot an indian who is right in front of him.

Have you ever seen a guy who has been seriously punched in the mouth just once? His face is puffed up to hell and back and he can barely speak.
Bruce Willis can be hit 74 times, kicked in the ribs, tossed off a small building and get run over by the baddies car. despite all of this he can still grab hold of the back bumper as it goes by, haul himself onto the back of the car and onto the roof. He then punches in the side window (ever tried that??) and drags the baddie out with one hand.

In slasher films if the girl takes her top off or appears in a soapy shower scene you know she's next to get hacked to bits.

Derranged seriel killers like to wear boiler suits and walk slowly.

In American films English people either talk really posh or have a cockney accent and will more than likely call someone a 'w**ker'!

No matter how skint a soap character is they're always propping up the bar in the local pub.

Why does nobody in EastEnders have their own washing machine?

Why did nobody ever mention the incredible likeness of Peggy Mitchell to that woman in the Carry On films?

The only time I remember was when Arthur Fowler had the lottery on in the background.

I'd really like them to do a scene where someone is watching telly, a second person comes into the room and says "am I disturbing you?", and the first person says "nah, there's nothing on" all the while you can hear the Corrie theme tune!!

Minefields are only dangerous once people realise they are in one.

Alistair McGowan had a running joke about this, also that no-one ever watched or discussed football

If a building is on fire the hero always runs in and saves the person who is trapped, they just get out of the door when the building explodes (even if it is an empty warehouse with nothing flammable in it), they are both thrown through the air in the explosion but are miraculously unhurt.

Unfortunatly the poor characters with no name, generally policeman, who are stood well back from the explosion get killed.
