* Subverted and inverted in ''Film/{{Deadpool}}'': Wade orders a pizza while waiting in a "Mr. Merchant's" apartment, presumably as an EstablishingCharacterMoment so that he can eat the pizza and shoot Merchant at the same time. Then it's revealed he actually wanted Jeremy, as he was hired to prevent him from stalking a girl he knew. Wade still ate the pizza.
