Nathan Fillion got his start in soaps. One Life to Live, specifically. There's this convention in soap of the long slow close up, with the camera zooming or dollying in after one character dumps something heavy on another. It takes forever, this kind of close-up, and it can be excruciating trying to act through. A guy named Michael Knight clued Fillion in on handling it. He said that kind of close up is acted through in three stages: "Did I leave the oven on?" --> "I left the oven on!" --> "I didn't leave the oven on."

Every single time.

Or alternatively: "Did I leave the cat out?" --> "I left the cat out!" --> "I don't have a cat."
