It's amazing someone waits outside an elevator pushes the button to call said elevator and presto, the door opens and they waltz right in, well except Rosalyn Shays, she was so busy talking to Leland that she failed to notice there was no cab there and fell down the shaft to her death.  I was watching Will and Grace this morning and Grace gets off at the ninth floor, walks into Will's apartment.  Jack and Karen rush in after her put a sack over her head push the elevator call button and whoosh, they open and they shove her in.  If that were me, I'd realise that I had forgotten something on the first floor, turn around, push the button and wait 5-10 mins for the elevator and then there might be somebody in the cab.  There never seems to be anyone else riding the elevator.

I agree on the elevators in movies and TV shows. There is always one right where and when they need it except when the story line calls for the actors to use the stairs. Then they usually beat the elevator to the needed floor.
 
Along the same line, have you noticed they always find a parking place right where they need to park?

I have noticed both of them.  The elevator just opens up, the second they stop pressing the button.  I have noticed that they always find the parking spot infront of the building.  Except on Seinfeld.  Then they keep going around the corner.

Have you ever noticed that, whenever the actors goes into a restaurant, that they get the same exact table.

Every elevator I have seen on TV had elevator music. I've been in many elevators in my life, but none played elevator music.
Closing logos! Now that's something I can watch on TV.

The LEAST they could do is sway a little when the TV elevator 'moves' (like when in real ones.)  I've been in some that almost knock you over....
