Fight Scene
Coming to beat you up at a theater near you!

There are at least two kinds of TV viewers: the group that goes to the refrigerator during the fight scenes, and the group that describes the episode's plot as "Blah, blah, blah, Fight Scene!, blah, blah, blah."

If you are going to have fight scenes, the trick is to write the thing in such a way that both groups are entertained. If you decide to leave out the "Blah, Blah, Blah" part, see Chop Sockey.
