Screenwriters work very hard to write fun jokes, engaging dialogue, or a poignant point in the script, but sometimes you just can’t write this stuff. The collaborative process of movie making and television creation allows a performer to just wing it on a take or two. There are also some accidental or unintentional actions that somehow enhance a scene better than it was written on the page.

Sometimes an iconic line wasn’t from the script, but just something that the actor said off the top of the dome or from their real life experiences. Occasionally, a stunt goes way too far but looks good for the camera. Then there are the times when everything is changed because the lead actor wants to bathe in a lobster tank.

Here are some of the last minute decisions that were made on set that made into your movie theaters on onto your television screen:
