* In a specific instance, the formation of Music/TheTravelingWilburys musical supergroup would likely have been dismissed as being a ContrivedCoincidence if it didn't actually happen. Creator/GeorgeHarrison and producer [[Music/ElectricLightOrchestra Jeff Lynne]], who were working on an album together, met up with Creator/RoyOrbison for dinner one night, and when they finished Harrison realised that he'd left his guitar at Music/TomPetty's house and went to collect it. While they were there, Petty suggested that they use Music/BobDylan's home recording studio to work on the album, since Harrison's own home studio was back in England. Petty tagged along with the others to Dylan's house, and all the assembled musicians decided that since they already were hanging out together, they might as well jam together, which ended up resulting in their first single.

*** When the Imperial probe droid arrives on the planet Hoth, it slams into the ground not only fairly near the Rebel base, but close enough to Luke Skywalker for him to see it land.

*** When the Imperial probe droid arrives on the planet Hoth, it slams into the ground not only fairly near the Rebel base, but close enough to Luke Skywalker for him to see it land. To be fair, we don't actually see proof it's the ''only'' such probe that was sent to search Hoth.
