* Happens literally in ''Disney/ChickenLittle'', with Fish-Out-Of-Water being one of the main characters. He has a sealed fish bowl full of water, just around his head. He doesn't even speak English, apparently, since everything he says is a series of bubbling noises.

** “As the World Turns” describes being an outsider in the spiritual sense:
-->And I never get comfort in the earth or sky\\
It’s my belief they’re not my home\\

** The liner notes include a short story where the narrator realizes:
-->I concluded, and retain this belief even now, that the only ultimate disaster that can befall a man is to feel at home here on earth.
