Riding the dream catapult

Somebody wakes up from a dream by sitting up in bed

Name Space:
Main
Page Type:
Trope
Often in movies or on TV a character will wake up from a dream, more often than not a nightmare, by physically sitting up in bed. Often following a dream sequence this serves as the striking visual cue that the character has awoken with a start

    Great, I knew this existed somewhere! Can we add this to the film Babette's Feast?

    Go ahead. Also, Lost And Found is where you normally inquire about a trope you thought existed already.
