* In the ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}} DLC ''Mad Moxxi and the Wedding Day Massacre'', Moxxi and the Vault Hunters make a love potion using the recipe "Something new, something old, something borrowed, something gold." They end up using the tears of a baby they kidnapped (something new and borrowed), an aged whiskey (something old) and parts from a [[BlingBlingBang golden robot]] (something gold). At one point, Ellie questions whether the recipe is actually meant to include something blue, referencing the real-world saying, but Moxxi shoots her down, arguing that blue doesn't rhyme with gold; ultimately, it's left ambiguous which of them is correct, since while the potion does rekindle the romance between the bride and groom, it ''also'' causes the wedding to go spectacularly off the rails.

The final line "...And a silver sixpence in her shoe" is all-but-forgotten nowadays, at least in part because sixpence pieces aren't used anymore in Britain and never were in the USA. Some people buy antique coins especially for the purpose (and for considerably more than 6p); whether that also counts towards their Something Old is up for debate.
