* In ''WesternAnimation/MiloMurphysLaw,'' [[BornUnlucky Milo]] and his friends attend the opera for extra credit while his crush, [[ScheduleFreak Amanda]], does it for fun. Since Amanda mentions that she ''really'' doesn't want anything to go wrong, Milo spends most of the time backstage, trying and failing to prevent all the chaos [[HereditaryCurse Murphy's Law]] [[TheJinx causes onstage]]. Given that Milo is played by [[Music/WeirdAlYankovic a famous singer]], wanna bet whether or not he's eventually PushedInFrontOfTheAudience?
