Also, the scenes where one person brings another person a container of coffee and they immediately take a big ol' swig instead of first seeing whether or not it's going to melt their tongue. On top of that, they tip it back so far, they'd be wearing the contents.
What bugs me is when a character is shown pouring a hot drink of some sort into a cup, and the sound of the liquid going into the cup is wrong. Haven't they noticed that the sound of hot liquid being poured is distinctly different (a higher pitch) from a cold liquid?
