* At the end of ''Literature/TheHobbit'', Bilbo suspects that his relative Lobelia Sackville-Baggins stole a number of his silver spoons. By the time of ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'', he hasn't forgotten, and his goodbye present to her is a bunch of silver spoons "as a ''present''". Lobelia isn't particularly amused. She still took the spoons though.

** In ''Discworld/{{Hogfather}}'', [[CloudCuckoolander The Bursar]] is asked to converse with Hex, a {{Magitek}} super-computer, and one of the things he says is "I've got a spoon of my own, you know."

** Taken UpToEleven in the online [[VideoGame/TheRoomTheGame videogame remake]], where an optional sidequest is to find all the spoons hidden throughout the city. Doing so unlocks an alternate ending [[spoiler:where it's revealed that Johnny is from a race of spoon-obsessed aliens, who turn the Earth into a spoon.]]

* In the ''Series/InsideNo9'' episode "Cold Comfort", crisis helpline volunteer Andy overhears a call where a colleague keeps asking a client if they have tried using a spoon to fix their problem. What the problem ''is'' and what they need the spoon for can't be heard; but his expression suggests he doesn't think he wants to know.

This time they find a spoon.
