** In the pilot episode, EnsignNewbie Harry Kim wants to know why everyone is snubbing [[BoxedCrook Tom Paris]].
-->'''Paris:''' It's a long story, Harry, and I'm tired of telling it. I'm sure someone around here will tell you before long.



** "Long story" is a {{catchphrase}} used by the polar scientists in the 2014 Christmas special "Last Christmas" for what the lab is studying and how any of them got there. The Doctor and Clara use it as well. PlayedForDrama as [[spoiler: these are all details that they ''can't'' provide because the lab doesn't exist. They're all trapped in a DyingDream]].
