Chase Scene
aka: Car Chase

Go To

"One jump ahead of the slow pokes
One skip ahead of my doom
Next time, gotta use a nom de plume
One jump ahead of the hitmen
One hit ahead of the flock
I think I'll take a stroll around the block!"
Aladdin, "One Jump Ahead," Aladdin

One of the most basic action scenes in fiction: one party is trying to get away from another. The variations you can hang on this premise are endless. Chases featuring cool cars is practically a trope unto itself, and whole genre of films has cropped up dedicated to it. Bonus funny points if it's accompanied by Benny Hill music.
