Compare with CrypticBackgroundReference, InJoke, NoodleImplements, SecondHandStorytelling, TakeOurWordForIt, ThatMysteriousThing, & WhatDidIDoLastNight. Reminiscing about a Noodle Incident by the people involved can result in LostInTransmission for an outsider. Compare and contrast OffscreenMomentOfAwesome, where the off-screen incident would have been better on-screen. See also CowTools. Enough such incidents create a character who has SeenItAll. If a Noodle Incident is essential to solving a mystery, it's a RiddleForTheAges. If it results in the person/people involved being banished from wherever it happened, they've become PersonaNonGrata. See also GreatOffscreenWar. Contrast ObliviousMockery, where characters talk about an event they don't know happened but the ''viewer'' does (most of the time).

Named for an incident referenced by the characters of ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'', where the author admitted he decided against ever stating what happened, as he figured nothing he could come up with would be as outrageous as what the readers thought happened.

happened.[[note]]It originated from the [[http://www.gocomics.com/calvinandhobbes/1990/09/14 Sept. 14, 1990 strip]], in which the word "incident" was not used, but was used all the time after that, starting with the [[http://www.gocomics.com/calvinandhobbes/1990/12/12 December 12, 1990]] strip.[[/note]]

The Noodle Incident is something from the past that is sometimes referred to but never explained, with the implication that [[CrazyAwesome it's just too ludicrous for words]] - or perhaps too offensive for depiction - and the reality that any explanation would fall short of audience expectations. Questions about it are often met with "[[YouDoNOTWantToKnow You Don't Want To Know…]]" Persisting is a good way to press a character's BerserkButton.

Commonly introduced to the audience by having characters react to some fantastic and improbable event with "[[OhNoNotAgain Oh no, not again]]." The key to this trope is that the audience is left to imagine what happened based on vague hints or clues, with [[RuleOfFunny funny]] (or [[NothingIsScarier scary]]) results.

Naturally, this trope is a good source of FanficFuel. Often overlaps with GettingCrapPastTheRadar.

GettingCrapPastTheRadar. Contrast with RememberWhenYouBlewUpASun, which is where the reminiscence is anything ''but'' ambiguous.
