* One of the many rumored resting places of the Teamsters Union leader Jimmy Hoffa was underneath one of the end zones at the old Giants Stadium in [[UsefulNotes/NewJersey the Meadowlands]] (Hoffa disappeared while the stadium was under construction), which led a 2001 ''Sports Illustrated'' article to quip that "[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Punter_(football)#Coffin_corner coffin corner]]" takes on a special meaning there. (For the record, ''LiveActionTV/{{Mythbusters}}'' found no evidence of any human remains there when they tried it out in 2003.)

* 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.
