Yakko, as Puck: And this weak and idle theme, no more yielding, but a dream!
Dot, translating into layman's terms: There is a hole in the plot you could drive a truck through.
"Now why hasn't anyone cursed Galbatroix? You apparently don't need to know his name to work this sort of magic, but no one has done this. Why? It seems so easy. Just say the magic words and poof. Do you know what we call this? We call this a Plot Hole."
— Kippurbird, Eragon Sporkings
"wild magic and miracle working, chaos theory and weird science, acts of god and freak occurrences, at the point where unbelievable coincidences and contrived events converge, I reach my hand into the gaping hole that exists in the plot of the universe, I send my prayers across the barrier of logic, calling forth the forces of pure dumb luck to aid my quest, let the improbable happen, I summon DEUS EX MACHINA!!!"

Kuzco: No! It can't be! How'd you get back here before us?
Yzma: Ah—(pause) How did we Kronk?
Kronk: Well you got me. By all accounts it makes no sense.
Tom: Oh, good, the Nazis are here. They'll fix this up.
Joel: 'We're the Padding Department! Where's the plot hole?'
Kevin: Do you think the audience will notice the policeman's gold tooth and realize later in the movie that he's the smart burglar?
Kevin's Sister: Who cares? If they were paying attention they'd realize this plot is so full of holes the script could've been typed on Swiss cheese!
"By the honor of plot holes, I have the Plot Device!"
The Enterprise makes it to the center of the galaxy, despite the fact no ship can supposedly survive the radiation but I guess if your ship has the name "Enterprise" painted on it, it can survive anything... Oh and the Klingon ship also makes it through, again they never explain how or why, I guess the whole "gee no ship can survive the trip" thing is a bunch of bullshit RIGHT MR. SHATNER DIRECTOR SIR!?!?!?!?
"People hate plot holes in movies. At least, that's what they'll tell you. But sometimes, if a movie is awesome enough, people will overlook even the most retarded gaps in reason and logic. ...At least, until some asshole on the Internet points them out and makes a big list of them."
Hold on... How come Vriska could read Jade's "Holo-screen" (?) Did she somehow learn how to read in English?
Oh fuck, Homestuck's leaking like a sieve, EVERYONE ABANDON SHIP!!!!!!!!!!!

"Severus was not quite sure what a "Plot Hole" was, but Faustus seemed to be obsessed with them, and claimed they were everywhere. The evidence, he claimed, was abundant if you looked at England alone: Hogwarts had had a new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher every year for twenty years without anybody noticing or commenting on it; nobody ever said the Dark Lord's name yet everybody seemed to know it; the Death Eaters, an illegal secret society, had decided it would be a brilliant idea to get indelible tattoos."

"If Ike is killed from the Black Knight's son, I'll just assume the cause of death to be that he fell into a Plot Hole and died."
