* In ''Film/GodHelpTheGirl'': Cassie is by the window on the top floor of her house when her friends James and Eve come by and call out for her to join them, so she starts to make a bedsheet ladder. She's not trapped in the room or anything, she's just enough of a CloudCuckoolander that it was the first thing she thought of doing. Subverted in that James and Eve manage to point out how unnecessary it is through gestures and she just takes the stairs and walks out the front door.
