If there are funeral ashes in a scene, 99.9% of the time, those ashes will end up being scattered inappropriately or dispersed.
- Frasier. In episode "Martin Does It His Way", Aunt Louise's ashes get blown back at Frasier and Niles. Frasier is still pouring her ashes out of his shoe at the funeral, and at the end, a janitor sweeps them under the rug.
- A View to a Kill. Stacey Sutton smashes a vase over the head of a baddie threatening James Bond containing the ashes of her grandfather.
Bond: All the king's horses and all his men won't do much with that.Stacey: That's all right. It was Granddad's ashes, but he always loved a good fight.
