* SerendipitousSurvival: Leo leaves town and gets on a plane, but it develops a mechanical fault ans is delayed for over an hour, so he gets off, goes back into the terminal and starts drinking heavily in the cocktail lounge. The plane crashes on takeoff and he would have died if he had stayed on board.

The plane crashes on takeoff and he would have died if he had stayed on board. And the real irony? The passengers were told over the PA system to remain in their seats. If Leo had listened, he would be dead.

A 1990 novel by Creator/ElmoreLeonard, ''Get Shorty'' was adapted into a 1995 film directed by Creator/BarrySonnenfeld, starring Creator/JohnTravolta as Chili alongside an all-star cast including Creator/GeneHackman, Creator/DannyDeVito, and Rene Russo. Both the novel and movie are an AffectionateParody of the film industry, and both were well-received in and out of Hollywood -- well received enough, in fact, that Leonard wrote a rare sequel to one of his books, ''Be Cool''. It was not as well received, though compared to its [[Film/BeCool film adaptation]], its reception was quite warm indeed.

Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler:For threatening Bear's daughter, Bear loosens Bo's balcony and pushes him over it. The irony is that Bo had earlier told Bear to do this to kill Chili. While Chili falls over the edge at the same time, Bear saves Chili while Bo falls to his death.]]
