Dear johnam: Here's my list! =) -In any movie where "something" has happened and villagers come to look at it, they always decide to "go for help". -The most expendable member of the group is left to "keep an eye on it", and supplied with a weapon or signaling device "in case something happens". -Said member ALWAYS responds: "What could happen?" This is a certain signal that he will die, gruesomely, within 2 minutes.
