* INeedYouStronger: After Morgan's latest plan to destroy Arthur's mayoral ambitions fails, she decides that if he thinks things are going great now, then it couldn't help to build up his hopes even further. She'll make it seem like things are going well with the election, only to crush his dreams at the last minute.
-->'''Morgan''': All right, fine. You want to build up your hopes, Arthur? Fine. I'll build them up even higher, then, and that way they'll make an even louder crash when they fall! And nothing will distract me from my purpose! Nothing!
-->'''Lance''': Morgan? Will you spank me?
-->'''Morgan''': [[HypocriticalHumor Well, five minutes of fun wouldn't hurt...]]

* DoNotAdjustYourSet: Early in his campaign, Arthur runs a series of ads that basically just feature him saying "Hello, I'm Arthur Penn, vote for me," and a graphic depicting him as candidate for Mayor of New York in order to get name and face recognition. Since the ads are only a few seconds long, they're dirt-cheap and therefore can be run pretty much every commercial break during the key hours on all the major stations, essentially creating this effect in advertising form. One of his opponents even calls to his campaign manager to complain about him seeing the damn ad pretty much every time he turns on the television.

''Knight Life'' is a series of novels written by PeterDavid. The books are comic political fantasies about King Arthur returning in the twentieth century to become President of the United States. First, however, he must become mayor of New York City, which was covered in the first title, ''Knight Life''. The original ''Knight Life'' was published in 1987 and since then, copies of the title became scarce. Peter David considered developing a movie of the book, but responding to demand, he published a revised version in 2002. The new version removes some of the more dated references in the original title (such as Republicans not being a major political force in New York City) and adds nearly 30,000 words of new material. The success of the new volume resulting in two more titles, making it a trilogy, though the later volumes never gained quite the attention of the original title.
