* In the ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' episode "What is Reality?", the Riddler's final challenge to Batman before his virtual world shuts down is: "If the planet were equitable, I'd still have my old job." This actually has a double meaning; since he previously had told Batman that his criminal career was a personal matter (in the previous episode he appeared in), he's saying if life were fair, his old employer would never have cheated and fired him. But it's also a riddle that tells the hero where he is: [[spoiler:The sentence can be rephrased to say, "If the world was fair, I'd still have my ex-position", meaning he's at the World's Fair Exposition.]]
