Still from YouTube

It’s a classic trope in movies: a character finds themselves mired in a state of panic, paranoia, or confusion, and another character shakes them out of their stupor. What’s interesting, though, is how uniformly these scenes play out—characters in movies rely on a handful of choice phrases to instill some calm and sanity in another.
