* In one ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'' episode, Dexter lost the ability to speak anything except the phrase "omelette du fromage" and used it to ace tests, scare away bullies, seduce women, win gameshows, create world peace, and release a solo album, among other things. Though his scaring away the bullies is probably the most straightforward use of the trope. Incidentally, at the end of the episode, his new phrase, while working with everything else, did not count as his lab password. He's left crying on the floor [[Main/WhyDoWeHaveThatLever when it self-destructed]].
