Working Title: Hard Head: From YKTTW

movie007: Would the Back to the Future trilogy have examples of this tropes? As I'm unsure, I thought I should ask first.

Has anyone noticed that equally hard blows to the head are treated completely differently depending on whether they result from something hitting the character, or from the character falling and hitting their head? Someone who falls and hit their head on furniture is doomed, and someone who gets their head smacked against the ground in a fight doesn't have much of a chance either.
