There should be a word for what happens when you see someone you don't know very well out of their usual context, like a teacher in the grocery store or a mailman at the movie theater. In a movie, quite often, this is a sign that something strange and possibly horrific is about to happen.
I feel like this happens often here; I'll see someone and then have that momentary "Oh! ...There's whatshisname...Wait." Then my mind scrolls through all the files: friends, someone's parent, coffee shop barista, Bob's market guy and then tries to match no, no, no, no. Until then, I remember, "Oh. Right." he's from TV.
