"That boy just said this word that made his mom drop something!"
- This episode of Arthur

Do We Have This One?? Oh, and I'm open to title suggestions.

Often times, a moment of feeling shocked, (or anything from surprised to offended) will result in a character dropping something they are holding and/or carrying. Bonus points if it's something fragile.

Examples:

  • The above Arthur episode, of course, features a Running Gag about cuss words causing people to drop things.
  • In The Shawshank Redemption, warden Samuel Norton drops a bible upon finding out that Andy Dufresne used a rock hammer hidden inside of it to escape from prison.
