Rational explanations for movie cliches (part 1)

Being the rational, analytical person that I am, I seek logical explanations for movie cliches... this is the first in what will probably be a long series...

Cliche: Any time a police officer mentions that he has only a few days left before retirement, you can guarantee that he will be dead within twenty minutes.

Rational Explanation: City police departments employ secret death squads to hunt down and kill police officers close to retirement. This provides a huge saving on pension benefit costs.

Well, there's always the cliche about a_____(fill in your favorite non-Anglo Saxon) that is always the first to die in a horror movie.

Apparently, Satan is a _____ (fill in your least favorite Hate Group).
