APPLES DO NOT FALL UP
W. E. Coyote's Law of Cartoon Inertia: Objects in motion tend to stay at the same altitude until gravity is noticed.
I fell for hours!
Yoshi: Ooh! Hours long time!
Well, it seemed like hours!
I know this defies the law of gravity, but I never studied law.
Oh! Gravity works!

You win again, Gravity!

Aw, come on gravity... You used to be cool.

Did it! But how am I gonna get down? (realizes) Oh, yeah...
"Oh, gravity. Thou art a heartless bitch."
