* It isn't an episode of ''{{Smallville}}'' without Chloe and/or Lois saying this at least once. * The PoliceProcedural, or at least ''{{CSI}}'', seems to favor this kind of OneLiner. ** In ''[[CSINewYork CSI: NY]]'', Maka gives a OneLiner regarding a bride who died before her wedding: "Gives a whole new meaning to the term 'cold feet'" in "Til Death do we Part." ** In ''CSIMiami'', "Breathless," Alexx quips "Gives a whole new meaning to the term 'Members Only'" after... well the context is unknown, but apparently nicotine got inside someone's penis, presumably a corpse's. ** Does ''not'' occur in a ''[[CSINewYork New York]]'' episode where a house is literally moved by road and transported across the East River.
