* ''WebVideo/{{Computerphile}}'': [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-5wpm-gesOY The Problem with Time & Timezones]]. Tom Scott is describing a hypothetical programmer, who created a simple tool that takes two times, in two time zones, and calculates how far apart they are in seconds... and all the exceptions and rule-patches needed to make sure it's accurate. When someone in the Southern hemisphere calls up to tell this hypothetical programmer that they do Daylight Saving Time backwards compared to the Northern hemisphere, the programmer starts "looking longingly at their intoxicant of choice and wondering whether they should have a quick drink before keeping going". [[FromBadToWorse This happens at minute 3 of a 10-minute video]].

-->"So last year, for the first time in the history of my channel, when I did my episode on the editing in Suicide Squad, I indulged in the [[DeadHorseTrope well-worn trope]] where a reviewer plays up needing drugs or alcohol to get through the process. Now, in the script, [[SubvertedTrope it was supposed to be cooking oil as a total subversion of the trope]], but at the last minute, I decided to just use an old cough syrup bottle instead, so I wound up inadvertently just [[PlayedStraight recreating the trope in its entirety]] in an attempt at being witty. Anyway, let's talk about [[TitleDrop the art of storytelling and The Book of Henry!]] ''([[ExaggeratedTrope huffs a balloon]] [[PlayedForLaughs full of nitrous oxide]])''

* In ''VideoGame/TheWitcher'', the phrase is uttered by Shani if you are on the Neutral path during chapter 5. As a doctor, she sets up a field hospital in the middle of a battlefield between the Order and the Scoia'tael and is treating both sides indiscriminately. Scoia'tael members barge in her hospital and, after seeing that she is treating humans, try to kill them and her. After Geralt dispose of them, members of the Order enter the hospital. Shani tells them that they are late and that their help is no longer needed, only for them to start attacking her and her non-humans patients when they realize she is helping non-humans. Once again, Geralt deals with them, leaving behind a bloody mess in the middle of the hospital. At this point, a very shaken and distraught Shani says she needs a drink.
