One of those questions...

I know this is not a very intellectual thread ( well ok, maybe even dumb ) but there are a couple of things that intrigue me whenever I watch an American film or show.
- People always swallow pills without drinking any water
- Nobody ever says bye before hanging up the phone.
What I want to know is, do you really do that or is it a cinematic licence?

I'm with Rusty. I have done both, but I usually use a glass of water to swallow pills and I usually say bye before hanging up the phone.

Thanks guys. Now for the most embarrassing one ( because I see you are not laughing you heads off, at least not to my face). You do keep your eyes on the road when you drive, don't you?
Rusty, I hope you'll remember us when you become rich and famous.

What about cabs? Do they always appear immediately when needed?

It's truth always in the movies hasn't water glass, I've seen, what in the movies never, the singers use some type of bath room or never work them in any place, I love the movies but all it's only fantasy but that fantasy is very fun.

Not when it's raining. Forget about getting a cab then!

But it only rains when it's needed. If you are happy it never rains!
On the other hand, are you all handsome and the girls pretty, except the bad guys?
