We almost certainly have this one, but I haven't seen it. Basically, person A does something showoffy and impractical to impress person B; person B is unimpressed and usually points out that it was very impractical. Person A is almost always the hero and person B is almost always the love interest. For example, the hero might do a flip over a wall, on which the love interest points out that the stairs were a few steps over.
