* {{Sitcom}}: When Frank Zappa asks Elvis why he can't drop out too since he feels the same way Elvis does, Elvis says that he's going to need outside help, and suggests that Zappa "star in a sitcom or somethin'...That'll lull folks into a false sense of security toward you."

* [[TheGoodGuysAlwaysWin The Good Guys Win]][=/=]HappyEnding: James Brown conducts the double-wedding ceremony for Elvis[=/=]Madonna and Sinatra[=/=]Sinéad. Sinatra says that he has some friends in the construction business who have been hired to rebuild the StatueOfLiberty (see below under TakeThat), and they are cutting Sinatra and co. a "sweet check for the opportunity," with Madonna pointing out how that's enough to buy up 100% of Time-Warner-Sony, now that they're just about bankrupt. Elvis talks about how he had been waiting for the right time to return to the world and had never really considered the responsibility he had. Madonna says that they've stuck with him this long, and they aren't going to let him down now.

Patrick [=McCray=]'s 1993 three-part comic '''''Elvis Shrugged''''' is, of course, an AffectionateParody of Creator/AynRand's epic ''Literature/AtlasShrugged.'' The story targets the music industry and Creator/{{MTV}}, with the premise that the Music/ElvisPresley everyone ''thought'' had died in 1977 was actually a clone created by Presley's manager Col. Tom Parker, and that the ''real'' Elvis had gone into hiding and had convinced many other musicians to join him. Because so many quality musicians have disappeared, the recording industry, which has become a conglomerate called Time-Warner-Sony, has largely collapsed.
