From the TV Show "Important Things with Demitri Martin" and the term is of course by Demitri Martin

When someone is so predictable you see what's comming.

Based on the rabbit in the hat trick; the rabbit actually moves down the sleeve into the hat. If the Magician has short sleeves, you see the rabbit.
Person 1: Dude, yesterday Dan fell on his face when trying to do an ollie, so he stormed off and blamed his new Nike Airs.

Person 2: Typical Dan, what a short sleeved magician.
