For whatever reason, whenever a character is eating alphabet soup (or anything else with letter-shaped pieces), a spoonful will contain letters that spell out a message that is relevant to the plot. This is usually a (subtle) form of Give Me a Sign. Unrelated to Alphabet Soup Cans.

Needs a Better Description, Needs More Examples

  • From SpongeBob SquarePants: Spongebob gives Squidward (who is jobless) a bowl of soup with the phrase "Get a job".
  • From That '70s Show: After he and Donna break up, a depressed Eric attempts to eat alphabet cereal. The first spoonful spells her name and he storms off.
