In yet another point of view is the EMERGENCY STOP LEVER. The crew are instructed (and maybe even trained) NEVER to pull the lever except in the case of an emergency. Suddenly, something dreadful happens, or at least gives an appearance of happening. THIS JUST MIGHT BE THE EMERGENCY!!! I'M PULLING THE DAMNED LEVER!!!

Doesn't matter what you wrote in the instruction book. Joe's pulling that lever!
