* On ''Series/LawAndOrder'', Briscoe and Green spend a chaotic day investigating several crimes, including the disappearance of an expectant mother, who they fear has been murdered by her adulterous husband. Fortunately, the woman is found alive (she had actually been kidnapped by a deranged woman who wanted to steal her baby)--but in labor. Briscoe later comments that it was actually nice to have one good thing happen among the slew of murders that they dealt with that day.

* The final issue of the (supposedly) final ''ComicBook/LoveAndCapes'' mini-series deals with the death of Windstar, a member of the Liberty League, and also Mark and Abby's Real Estate Agent, in which role he has been prominent throughout the previous four issues. After the League's memorial gathering, Amazonia tells Abby that the tradition on her world is for mourners to undertake "life-affirming" activities. Abby thinks this is a good idea and suggests it to Mark once they're at home again. The issue ends with Abby announcing that she's pregnant.

* Invoked in a subtle way by avant-garde composer Joseph Byrd on his 1969 album ''The American Metaphysical Circus''. The second-to-last track, "Leisure World" is a fake ad for a retirement community (voiced by [[Creator/{{Ghoulardi}} Ernie Anderson,]]) but toward the end we hear the sounds of a man moaning in pain. After a pause the album ends with an instrumental reprise of an earlier song on the album, sounding like it's being played by a mobile on a baby's crib.
