* Played with in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'' when Arnold is complaining about Helga. Grandpa Phil tells Arnold about a little girl named Gertie in his class that was horrible to him and spent the school year making him miserable. At the end of the episode Arnold's Grandma states that she was that very girl - though Arnold doesn't hear it. Which leads to some FridgeLogic when you realize that Arnold probably knows his grandmother's name, and so he should've have made the connection that Gertie was his grandma, especially since it's a really uncommon name.
** Gertie sounds like a nickname. Which means that maybe she isn't called by that by anyone except Phil anymore.
** Gertie is usually the nickname for Gertrude. But everybody calls Arnold's grandmother Pookie.

* ''Series/{{Pixelface}}'': Subverted. In "The Game's Up", Rex is deliberately slowing down his performance as he approaches the final level of his game. QM tells him a story about a character who did not want his game, so started deliberately screwing up, and eventually the player gave up playing the game because he couldn't finish it, and the character became a quartermaster in a console. When Rex goes "You were that character!", QM responds indignantly (and seemingly genuinely surprised) and says he is talking about a quartermaster in another console who is a total loser.
