one of my favorite scenes in any movie i’ve ever watched is from the in-laws where alan arkin and peter falk are sustaining deadly gunfire, and decide that they need to run away from the bullets by running serpentine, zigzagging back and forth between an airplane and the getaway vehicle. then they realize they don’t have the keys. the keys are with the dead guy who just got shot. so arkin runs back to the dead guy to get the keys to the getaway vehicle, but makes the terrible mistake of running to get the keys, and also running back through the gunfire, in a straight line. he arrives safely, but his buddy reminds him he is supposed to run serpentine. so he returns to the dead body, through more gunfire, then runs properly, in serpentine fashion, back to the getaway car. watch the scene. watch it ten times in a row, and tell me if you’re not still laughing.
