    Okay fair enough, how about:

    ドアから出ようとした途端に、彼の言葉を思い出した。
    "Just as I was about to go out the door, I remembered his words."

    I think so. Unexpected.

    Well, I think this is probably splitting hairs on the "unexpected" issue, but if those three sentences contain said unexpectedness, then it's really like saying that any non-volitional action is unexpected.

    Yeah, ~た瞬間 basically means the same as ~た途端 however 瞬間 is emphasizing the 瞬間, (that moment in time itself), versus 途端 emphasizing the verb before it.

    Just watch a lot of TV and read a lot, you'll figure out the nuances eventually.

    Keep in mind, you don't really need to be using these phrases, for the time being at least. Once you know what they mean, you'll be able to hear how they're used by other people, in context, and you'll get a better feel for when to use them.

    Yep but if I don't discuss them with people immediately after I read them I never remember them.

    I've been slipping new words into my text messages to my girlfriend but I think I need more quality sit down time with a teacher.

    But you have a Japanese girlfriend you say? I just feel weird talking Japanese grammar with her and I'd hate to come off as a Jap-go leech.

    Just out of curiosity, do you speak in J-go or Eigo?

    I told mine, "I'm in Japan, so goddamnit, Imma throw all the Japanese at you I can get." She was like, "sounds a good!"

    Nowadays we use a lot more English because I've well exceeded what she could teach me in everyday speech, so it's time to pay back with some English banter.
