** And of course, every state which was first colonized by the Spanish Empire has plenty of cities which retain names in their language, including the top six cities in California (Los Angeles, San Diego, San Jose, San Francisco, Fresno, and Sacramento), and three of Texas' top nine (San Antonio, El Paso and Plano). Two states have names derived from Spanish words: Nevada ("snowy," from the Sierra Nevada, which being high mountains are actually snow-capped) and Montana (from ''montaña'', meaning "mountain", because there are lots of mountains there). Montana also has a Spanish motto: ''Oro y plata'' ("Gold and silver").

* PlayedForLaughs in ''Machinima/RedVsBlue''. Due to a problem when installing his speech unit, the robot Lopez only speaks Spanish, a language none of his teammates understand - and neither do the creators (which are from another state close to Mexico, Texas), meaning the lines written through online translators are [[MyHovercraftIsFullOfEels usually incorrect]] (specially in the earlier seasons, as before Google Translate was invented Creator/RoosterTeeth had to useo Babelfish) and don't match the English subtitles. Even further in Season 9, where in a recreation of the earlier seasons, Sarge reveals that he ordered the Spanish model of robot so that the team could grow closer by learning Spanish together.
