Whenever I watch a movie, I try to have my knitting in my hands.  It makes me feel productive even when I'm watching something trashy.  Whenever anyone (i.e. my husband) catches me watching something I'm mildly ashamed of, I justify it by saying I'm doing research.

Take Grey's Anatomy.  It takes some courage to admit that I just spent the past couple of months watching every episode of that abominable show.  But it was all in the name of research!  What was I researching?  Um...knitting, of course!

In one episode, when love doesn't go her way, Meredith swears off men and takes up knitting. Observe:
Stupid Grey's Anatomy.  Knitting ≠ celibacy!  Well, it did for the first 23 years of my life, but now things have changed.  I assure you that sex and yarn can peacefully coexist.

 Alex:  You knitting like some Jane Austen prune because you screwed Bambi and you have a hidden sister?

Ooh, knitting and scrabble.  Great combo.

But Izzy--you knit the guy you like a sweater in a day?  And wore it for 3 hours?  Yeah-freaking-right.  Oh, and ever hear of the sweater curse?  If you knit a guy a sweater, you two will break up.  That's why Pete still doesn't have a sweater from me.  I was waiting until we got married.  You can't be too careful.  No wonder Denny died!  Oops, spoilers.

Expect more trashy knitting research soon!

Next, you'll have to watch Private Practice... which my husband calls "Practicing Your Privates!"
