For some reason, when a character gets a new car, he will usually show a friend all the cool features the car has. When those features include cup holders, you can expect the friend to become [[ComicallyMissingThePoint more excited about those]] than any other feature the car has.

* In Creator/GregCostikyan's sci-fi novel ''First Contract'', aliens come to Earth peacefully, but are [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic so scientifically advanced, Earth can't keep up with inter-galactic trade]]. So what ''can'' Earth manufacture? Cheap little doohickeys: The one that's made in the story is a cup holder that works in zero gravity. It becomes ridiculously popular.
** It should also be pointed out that due to disparities in interstellar exchange rates, the companies involved are able to charge thousands of dollars for said "cheap" doohickeys. So we end up doing OK out of the deal...

* When [[TheSimpsons Homer Simpson]] designed a car for his half-brother Herb's car company, Homer insisted that it have a holder for ''his'' cup - not one of those wimpy regulation-size cup holders, but one big enough for a [[GiganticGulp Super-Squishee]].

* In BuzzLightyearOfStarCommand, Team Lightyear find themselves aboard an out of control alien (even by their standards) ship with no crew. When Buzz tries to stop the ship, all he can find at the control console were the Cup Holders. He was not amused. He was even less amused when said cup holders [[spoiler: really were the primary control for the space ship, and the aliens in question had no concept of cup holders.]]
