Still my favorite "cheat" of all time:

"I really think we should cut that line."

"Aw man, you know how long it took us to shoot it? Plus the client really likes the line. Look, just try take three. He says it more forcefully there."

"Let's take a look." . . . . "Hmmm, this is quite cool actually! But it just needs one more thing to give it some punch. Right after it, let's have her say her line from take six. It'll allow him time to walk across the room and grab the prop. Here, what do you think?"

(Hit play and watch it.)

"Nice. Really nice. Hmmm... but how much time did that add?"

"About 16 seconds."

"Yeesh! No, that's too much. Damn - let's just cut the line."
