* PlayedWith in a sketch on ''Series/ThatMitchellAndWebbLook'' sketch, with the joke being that the inventions won't catch on because they're peripherals for things as yet not invented - a wooden computer mouse, a windscreen wiper ("the device for wiping clean a screen that, in as yet obscure circumstances, would shield one from the wind"), a can-opener ("the device for extracting food that has somehow become encased in metal"), anti-viral software (a long scroll of ones and zeroes, which he no longer remembers the purpose of), and [[spoiler: a Sky Digi-Box]].

The bellhop asks if it's a motor for one of those horseless carriages, and asks if he thinks there's really money in them.

'''George Lucas:''' ...sure, Steve. Yeah, I'm going to invest in your super-duper phone, that's where the future's at. Listen, I don't want to keep you from your hemp-tasting contest or whatever it is you're into, so I'm gonna let you go and get back to working on my speeches for all the [[UsefulNotes/AcademyAward Oscars]] I'm about to win, okay?!

** His review of "Whom Gods Destroy" also included one. When they mention the name Axanar, and how Garth of Izar went mad, Chuck jokes that "If there's one thing I know, it's that the name '[[WebVideo/PreludeToAxanar Axanar]]' will ''never'' be associated with controversy!"
