Just a Stitch
Okay, so we have a standard Sick Episode. So far, Alice has started periodically doubling over with a pain in her abdomen. The audience knows where this is going. More likely than not, this will end with a Ruptured Appendix.

But when Bob notices Alice doing this and asks her what's wrong, she says it's "just a stitch". She might actually believe this, or it could be done in an effort not to worry him. Often he'll believe her until it becomes obvious that it isn't so minor.

Examples:

    open/close all folders 

    Live Action TV 

  • In an episode of "The Saddle Club", Lisa is brushing her horse when she feels the pain. When Carol asks her if she's okay, she says it's "just a stitch".
  • In "The Big Valley" in the episode "Last Train to the Fair", Audra says this in response to Jarrod's concerned query.

    Fanfiction 

  • In a Monkees fanfiction called "Night of the Gig", this is what Mike's cousin says to Davy when he asks her.
