phlebotinumAlso spelled “Phlebotinum” it is any magical, mystical, or scientific force or event that arises in the process of advancing the plot at hand. How does it work? Magic! What makes a spaceship fly? Science! How did that person read my mind? Mystical power! Joss Whedon claims that the term was coined by David Greenwalt during the shooting of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer series.
