Car tyres squeal on all surfaces, gravel, wet, ice, snow.

Cars are never locked or unlocked, and never have to be started.

Water canteens should always be thrown violently away when they are empty specialy in the desert, if you stumble across a water hole over the next dune you can always carry enough water away in your pockets for the rest of the journey.

Inspector Morse is always able to find the parking spot of his dreams in Oxford. Have you ever tried to park there?

Any new face with a talking part on the bridge of the Starship Enterprize will be dead before the end of the episode.

It has never occurred to any super villain to just shoot James Bond when they have the opportunity.

Half a dozen hard punches around the facial area are likely cause a small trickle of blood from the corner of the mouth.

Tony, actually, whoever is wearing the red shirt on the "Away Team" gets it. At least on the original Star Trek.

Small town Sherifs always keep thousands of dollars in cash in their desk draw in case some random bounty hunter happens to call in with a dead outlaw across his saddle.

Cowboys never have to worry about the catering,they set out with just a blanket roll rifle scabard and saddle bags hanging from their horse but when they camp for the night some thoughtfull person had always left a very large frying pan and coffee pot for their use.

When Hollywood needs a snivelling, treacherous baddie for a part, they will usually cast an Englishman.
