To be or Origami

In the movie Bee Season (2005) 12 yo Eliza is being prepped by her father played by Richard Gere for the national Spelling Bee Championship. The last practice word he gave her was “origami”. She survived to the final word to be spelled. If she got it right, she would be national champion. The word? “origami”. I think the writers needed to signal the audience that Eliza knew the correct answer. Why? Because for her own very good reasons, she pretended that she could not spell this word. The only other possible explanation is precognition (knowing the future before it happens). There was no indication that the screen writers had this possible explanation in mind.

So please send in your examples of good and not so good coincidences in the movies hopefully with an accompanying video. Send it in via the movie page.
