Inevitable Stock Phrase when somebody is kissing/having sex during an explosion, earthquake, or similar event. The phrase comes from Creator/ErnestHemingway's ''For Whom the Bell Tolls,'' when the hero and his lover are describing the intensity of the sexual pleasure they had ([[DestructoNookie no literal earth-moving is involved]]). Naturally, the phrase lent itself to much spoofing.

* Played with in Creator/PatrickMcManus' short story "The Sensuous Angler" in which he tells the tale of a torrid...er, fishing partnership with a co-worker whose husband Hammer hates fish and fishing. After sneaking over to her apartment for some hot-and-heavy perch-filleting action, Pat asked the question at hand.

* This developed a visual gag in the older British satirical comedy show, ''Series/ThatWasTheWeekThatWas'' (TW3). Sometime around 1962, comedian Willie Rushton was seen getting into bed with an impossibly glamorous actress/model type. Amid giggling and sighing, foreplay ensues. The camera then cuts to stock footage of waves crashing against rocks, tall chimneys falling, train going into tunnels, et c. We cut back to Willie Rushton and girl, who are still in bed - but soaked through from the waves, covered in brick dust and rubble from the chimney, and smothered in soot from the steam-train. She is screaming. He is wide-eyed with panic.

* In the gangster spoof ''JohnnyDangerously'', this is parodied (along with SexyDiscretionShot): the title character and his love interest start kissing passionately, the camera pans up to some fireworks... and it cuts to another character, who looks up at the fireworks and remarks "Looks like Johnny's getting laid!"
* When the title aliens' ship crashes in ''{{Critters}}'', teenager April is making out with her boyfriend in a nearby barn. April feels the ground shake from the impact and remarks that "The earth moved", to which her beau (who's barely gotten to second base yet) asks: "Already...?"
