scenes I'd like to see

You know that moment that inevitably happens in scifi shows, and a great many action shows as well, when one of the main characters has to explain the crazy sounding situation to a civilian to save them? Well, just once I want to hear them say, "Ok, look. You may think I'm crazy. And for the sake of argument, lets just go ahead and say you're right. But believe this. There are other, arguably crazy people who believe the exact same thing I do, and they are coming here to kill you."

Seems like it would save a lot of time.

Also, just once I want to see the hero who just had their best friend killed, have to tell the family, "He wanted me to tell you... well, I don't actually know. He started to tell me, but then I cut him off and reassured him we would get out of this. Guess I was wrong about that. My bad!"

I always wondered why one of those dying characters didn't, when interrupted, erupt with, "Just shut the fuck up and listen! I've got something I want to say, I'm dying, and I'm tired of you interrupting all the time." Of course then he would die and the hero would move on, always haunted by his or her inner asshole.

That last bit should be a comic strip.

I am going on a comment spree.

As a result, I am commenting here as well.

My comment here is that I think it would be funnier if instead of even trying to explain the situation to a civilian they just hit him or her over the head hard enough to knock him or her out and dragged them away.

Also, there is a possibility that Richard, from Looking For Group, would share my view, though he might just rip their faces off and sing instead.
