{{Wham Episode}}s tend to have a high HSQ, as do ProfessionalWrestling matches involving {{Spot Monkey}}s. This is in fact a common chant at pro wrestling events when something like that happens. HeavyMetal and VisualKei bands try to have at least a moderate one of these per promotional video and/or concert, though it often ends up as {{Narm}} if failed. Obviously, [[{{YMMV}} that's a matter of opinion]].

This is probably why there are such long pauses in the action of movies like ''[[ThreeHundred 300]]'' or ''Film/TheMatrix'': it gives the audience time to go "Holy shit!"

High Holy Shit Quotient is a typical feature of a SummerBlockbuster, perhaps even an EpicMovie.

Anything that has SerialEscalation somehow is guaranteed to have a high HSQ.

When writers try to increase the HSQ of a scene that doesn't have punch by having the characters (or camera work) ''pretend'' it does, they often wind up using MundaneMadeAwesome.

%%%No Examples Please. We don't need to document every instance of someone saying "Holy Shit."

Divide the number of times you said [[AC:"Holy Shit!"]] by the number of scenes. This is the Holy Shit Quotient (or HSQ) for a given episode. The term originated somewhere among the ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' (BuffistasOrg, most likely) and TelevisionWithoutPity communities, where it is occasionally still possible to get a nice little flame war going over whether "HSQ" is pronounced "aitch-skew."
