*Before becoming king, George VI smoked twenty cigarettes a day, which was not uncommon for a man of his age and social background. After his accession, the stress of being king caused him to bump it up to forty cigarettes a day. He died at 56 of aggressive lung cancer- though all the cordite smoke he inhaled as a naval turret officer in the First World War probably had something to do with it as well.

So the world's [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt about to end]], you [[ILetGwenStacyDie didn't save the girl]], you did but [[PanickyExpectantFather she's about to give birth]], or you just had a really bad day at work. While others might be [[INeedAFreakingDrink needing a freaking drink]] right about now, it's not going to cut it for you. What you ''really'' need is a cigarette. Possibly 20. This is also where the phrase "Smoke 'em if you got 'em" is likely to come in.

* The lead character of ''Series/TheTwilightZone'' episode "Nervous Man in a Four Dollar Room" tries to light up to relieve the stress of being called on to kill someone for the first time. He can't because he's out of matches. His reflection, on the other hand, happily puffs away while berating him.

** In the episode ''Krusty Gets Cancelled'', Krusty insists that Gabbo's new show doesn't worry him. Cue shot of ashtray overflowing with burned-out cigarettes.
** In the season four episode of ''Lisa's First Word'', Krusty sets up a scratch off game in which every time the US wins a gold medal in an event, the owners of the card will win a free Krusty Burger. However, the game was rigged for only games in which the Soviets would win. However, this was the 1984 Olympics, and the Soviets ended up boycotting it, leaving the US to win all the games, and Krusty to lose $44 million. The next time we see him, he is puffing away on a cigarette.
