** He's even used his knowledge of the Bible to skewer other people who try to invoke this trope. [[SugarWiki/CrowningMomentOfAwesome Like the infamous moment when he asked a Congressman, who supported a bill requiring the display of the Ten Commandments in Congress, to quote all ten Commandments.]] [[WhatAnIdiot He couldn't.]]

* President Bartlett on ''Series/TheWestWing'' is a devout Catholic (as is his actor, Martin Sheen) and occasionally whips out his thorough and [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment encyclopedic]] knowledge of the Bible as a walking SugarWiki/CrowningMomentOfAwesome. For example, in one episode a Christian fundamentalist quotes the Bible, particularly laws-heavy Leviticus, to support her stance against homosexuality. Bartlett [[QuoteToQuoteCombat matches her quote for quote]] with yet more lines from Leviticus to show how outdated it is.

** Probably the most celebrated instance comes in the animated special ''ACharlieBrownChristmas'', when a frustrated Charlie Brown asks, "Isn't there anyone who knows [[TrueMeaningOfChristmas what Christmas is all about]]?" and Linus duly obliges by reciting Luke 2:8-14.
