Creates an ambience opposite to "oh, so Hollywood."

Savvy New York Decorator: Sorry, the WHAT?

Brit Designer: You know, the bits and bobs.

NY Decorator: Oh, we have 40 boxes; they're unpacking them now.

Slippery, pernicious material frequently found in bathtub and shower areas. Hazardous and unsanitary substance common to the interior of tubs and other bathing facilities. Good housekeeping is the most effective intervention strategy.

NOTE: 1) Bathtub accidents are a popular form of "accidental" death in the American cinema. 2) Falls are the 2nd most common cause of accidental death in the US.

Critical considerations:*
"Accidents in the bathtub and shower area can be defined as a complex, time dependent system of components interacting simultaneously and sequentially to produce injury."
"The slipperiness of most bathtub surfaces constitutes the chief hazard... Bathtubs far exceed shower stall in accident potential."(*Findings FROM: "A Systematic Program to Reduce the Incidence and Severity of Bathtub and Shower Area Injuries, FINAL REPORT June 4,1975")

Someone who habitually snorks during an enthusiastic bout of laughter.

Snorkers may be subject to extreme or mild embarrassment, often accompanied by flushing and/or rapid covering of the mouth. Occasionally snorkers appear to be well-adjusted to their habit, and merely smile afterwards.

Anyone who snorks multiple times on a regular basis may be suspected of being a fake snorker.

Lips attached to male lawyers, or possibly even law students, which are the focus of attention among certain groups of females.

These lips are often quite shapely and sexually alluring, although no scientific relationship therein has been established.

Women who express interest in these lips are quite well aware of the other key aspect of lawyer lips, which is that they lie in every conceivable circumstance.
.....

Hot-to-trot chick in club: I'm going to get on those lawyer lips right away.

Impervious friend-chick: You do that. I wouldn't touch those lips with a ten foot pole.
