* TheFlash's John Broome seemed to have some sort of fixation with second floor burglaries. It has been suggested that maybe he was burgled while living on the second floor and developed it because of that.

* In all the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' books, by Creator/JKRowling, spiders and socks are mentioned in passing several times, and both becoming huge plot points in the second book. There's even a giant talking spider character named Aragog. She also made a whole family of [[RedHeadedHero red headed heroes]] to counter the negative stereotypes of 'gingers' in the UK. She also made their last name "Weasley" specifically because she likes weasels and thinks they get a bad rap. By her own admission, Rowling likes odd and/or interesting names and words. She says that she "collects" them. Also, almost ''every'' character in the series has either a MeaningfulName or just an odd, medieval-style one, the titular character being one of the only exceptions. And as Creator/StephenKing once snarked, "Rowling never met an adverb she didn't like."

* TinaFey and the other writers of ''[[Series/ThirtyRock 30 Rock]]'' like to make ''Franchise/StarWars'' references. In season 2, they got Carrie Fisher to guest star and say, "Help me, Liz Lemon... you're my only hope!"
* Creator/BryanFuller likes the macabre like fish like water: ''two'' of his shows (''DeadLikeMe'' and ''PushingDaisies'') have used death as a metaphor for adulthood. He loves giving his female leads {{tomboyish name}}s, for whatever reason.
