* {{Sequel}}: His famous "Persistence of Memory" picture had a follow-up after WW2, ''The Disintegration of the Persistence of Memory'', which shows everything shattering into pixel-like fragments, which was meant to represent the impact of the theory of relativity and the atom bomb upon perception, splitting apart the flowing picture of time, space, and matter into discrete, quantified units.

* TrueArtIsIncomprehensible: He once said that nobody could "understand Dali because (he) never understands (his) work. Never Dali understand one painting of Dali, because Dali only creates enigmas."

* EyeScream: A famous example in the film ''Film/UnChienAndalou'', in which he collaborated with similarly surrealist director [[Creator/LuisBunuel Luis Buñuel]]. The effect of a human eye being sliced with a razor blade was replicated with a cow's.

* HeAlsoDid: Of all things, designed the label for [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chupa_Chups Chupa Chups lollipops]].
** He also collaborated with Italian couturier Elsa Schiaparelli in her designs like the shoe hats and lobster details in her dresses.



* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** Dalí actually did a collaboration project with Creator/WaltDisney, of all people, on a short subject that was meant for ''Disney/{{Fantasia}}'', but was ultimately scrapped. ''Destino'' was eventually completed in 2003 and was finally released on DVD as an extra on the 2010 holiday release of ''Disney/{{Fantasia 2000}}''. When Destino originally fell through, Walt and Dali would briefly collaborate again for a possible Literature/DonQuixote film, only for the project to never get that far.
** He once asked a young Creator/LorraineBracco if he could paint her in the nude, but she refused, just thinking he was some creepy old man.
** Came pretty close to making a film with the Creator/MarxBrothers; some stills from the storyboard include Harpo playing a harp on fire on the top of a cliff while Chico negotiates a maze of bicyclists a la Frogger.
** He was supposed to be cast as the evil Emperor by Creator/AlejandroJodorowsky in a proposed film adaptation of ''Film/{{Dune}}''.
