* [[Wrestling/{{Batista}} Dave Batista]] [[Memes/ProfessionalWrestling became infamous]] for saying to CM Punk, [[{{Narm}} "Yeah, well...you're a punk!"]] There was that hilarious time where Batista was to face The Great Khali for the world championship, and Khali was demonstrating his strength by crushing a basketball in his hands. Batista's response was, [[Memes/{{WWE}} "Basketballs... don't hold grudges!]] Basketballs don't wanna knock your teeth down your throat! Basketballs don't wanna rip your head right off your shoulders! And you're not gonna be in the ring with a basketball at Summerslam for the World Heavyweight Championship!"

* In ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}'', during the FinalBoss fight, if you let Rick the Adventure Sphere talk long enough, he will eventually ask if you have a "[[PreMortemOneLiner Cool Line]]" prepared for when you kill [[spoiler: Wheatley]]. After some unsuccessful attempts to think one up himself, he will try to [[InvokedTrope invoke]] one by asking Chell to get [[spoiler: Wheatley]] to say "You two have been a thorn in my side for long enough!", reminding you to do so as he is plugged in. Once all three cores are plugged in and the final part of the fight starts up, [[spoiler: Wheatley]]'s dialogue will have now changed slightly to include Rick's setup line word-for-word. Rick then delivers his "[[PreMortemOneLiner Cool Line]]". It's... a little underwhelming.

(he shrugs to Solovar behind him because he knew it was lame). The more hilarious part is that the comment was actually pretty funny.
