Where they store all the cliche
, and what have you the media
has ever come up with and/or used. As in, "that's the oldest
trick in the book".
Some cliches that have made it into "The Book":
"It's quiet... too quiet."
"Don't touch that dial!"
damsel in distress
The irony of the situation is that "the oldest cliche in the book" has itself become a cliche. Isn't learning fun?
