Botched abortions and projectile vomiting. Or something else entirely.

Don’t you love going to a movie and being like, “HEY!  That’s the girl who played Patrick Swayze’s dance partner who had the botched abortion in Dirty Dancing!”  Or, “That’s the chick who played the ghost that projectile vomits all over Haley Joel Osment in that Bruce Willis, ‘I see dead people’ film!!”  Okay, no one would say that.  They’d just say something like, “Oh.  Mischa Barton.  Who cares.”
