The following dialogues are from a moive:
Mother: Baby. What happened to your face. How did you get these cuts. Who did this to you?
Daughter: Did what?
Mother: The cuts on your face.
Daughter: There's no cuts.
If we refer to a countable noun, we usually use "There are no" with a plural noun. I am wondering if native speakers would say "There's no cuts" in spoken English? For sake of convenience, I am supposed native speakers would say There's no... at the beginning without thinking about whether the subsequent noun is countable or uncountable. Am I correct?
