In Rain Man, Dustin Hoffman's Academy Award-winning performance is marked by poignant moments that resonate with audiences. Yet, the scene that endears itself to viewers to this day was never intended to be part of the script. While in a phone booth making a call, Charlie (played by Tom Cruise) and Raymond (Hoffman) are unexpectedly interrupted when Raymond exclaims, "Uh oh, fart." Charlie is taken aback and asks incredulously, "Did you fart, Ray?" Despite Charlie's attempts to escape the overpowering smell, they are stuck inside the phone booth. Hoffman intended the incident to be a jest and never thought it would make the final cut. But both he and Cruise stayed in character, and the spontaneous exchange worked so well that it was ultimately included in the film.

The cinematic universe of Star Wars is full of iconic moments and beloved characters, but perhaps none are as memorable as the infamous head smack in A New Hope. As a group of stormtroopers chase the heroes through the corridors of a star destroyer, one trooper makes an unintentional misstep, smacking his head against a low-hanging door frame. Despite several takes where the blooper didn't occur, George Lucas ultimately decided to include the mistake in the final cut, adding to the film's charm and humor. In 1997, a remastered version of the film was released, complete with a sound effect to highlight the clang even further. And as a nod to the original, Lucas included yet another head smack in Attack of the Clones, this time with Jango Fett as the hapless victim.
