    Travis Mayweather's nonexistent role in the majority of Enterprise episodes. Even though he was in every episode, it was funny to see how insignificant to the plot he was. I think in one episode someone gave him an order over the intercom, and he had a one word voice-only response and that was it!

    In the Ferengi episode, he was unconscious at his station, the Ferengi picked him up and threw him aside, and that was his entire role. Rather symbolic too. :)

    Ouch! Forgotten already? You were just down ther
    Evil Captain Kirk in "The Enemy Within." "I'm Captain Kirk. I'M CAPTAIN KIRK!!!!!"

    "What about their legs? They don't need those."

    This reminds me of one of the most awkward cutaways in movie history. It's in the 1989 film Slipstream, a post-apocalyptic sci-fi movie starring Bill Paxton, Mark Hamill, Bob Peck, Robbie Coltraine, Ben Kingsley, & F. Murray Abraham. In the scene I'm thinking of, Bill Paxton is making out with this random, slutty woman. Then, it suddenly cuts away to a shot of a stuffed gazelle.:wtf:

    In fact, that movie is full of weirdness. The somewhat North by Northwest-ish shots of Bob Peck being chased by Mark Hamill's airplane are a pretty weird way to start a movie. I've seen this movie pop up a couple of times in various dollar bins. The trailer is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GX6r9zXVOk8

    The "do not want" version is a lot funnier.

    During the movie The Day After Tomorrow a giant tidal wave hits New York City. Tidal waves do most of their damage when the water recedes back into the ocean, in Day After Tomorrow the wave pours into NYC and just stops, maybe it wanted to take in a show or something.

    Maybe the film makers were like veryone else and thought most of the damage was when the wave actually hit.

    I can understand it making a big dent in the death toll with people dragged out to sea but in terms of stuctural damage alwasy thought that was when the wave struck.

    Watchmen, in the prison riot, when a prisoner has his pants set on fire and then takes a while to respond. You know, normally pants-arson is noticed.
