The Quiet Eye (QE) is an interesting phenomenon that has implications for the links between cognition and eye movements as well as for the question of how we examine these links in real world tasks. The gaze behaviour observed in sports and other active tasks is varied in form and function. Although fixation duration has a specific definition in laboratory tasks, in sport and naturalistic actions it is not as easy to interpret. I discuss what we can learn from gaze in natural behaviour and how both quiet and ?un-quiet? eyes may have highly specific functions in different tasks.
