* In ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/2549801/chapters/5716469 The Stark Truth]]'' after Harry calls Tony "sir" Tony asks him to check for gray hairs.
-->'''Tony:''' You see, it starts off with everyone calling you sir, then you start to get grey hairs, and then before you know it, you're walking around with your nose stuck up in the air, and a stick shoved up your ass. All of a sudden people expect you to act all grown up and be all bossy like. I just narrowly escaped the conference with my beautiful hair still black and greyless. I'm telling you kid, it's a plague and I'm begging you to never call me that cursed word again.
