Name that trope
March 24, 2014 6:07 PM   Subscribe

A conversation is in progress. Scene cuts for travel to a new location. Conversation picks right back up at the new location as if there was no time in between. Is there a name for this trope? Bones is a show that seems to have it in every opening sequence. As travel in DC is far from instant, it is like they stop talking for 30 minutes to 2 hours sometimes. Is there a name for it?

Thank you. I had looked all over tv tropes for that and I couldn't figure out what it was called.
