* The commonly cited spelling rule of "I before E except after C" has more exceptions in the English language than it has words that follow it. Even with the addition of "or sounding like ''AY'' as in neighbor or weigh," there are still so many exceptions that the "rule" may as well be forgotten.

* Inverted on ''Series/YesMinister'', when Hacker is arguing that high ranking civil servants don't need to receive special honours and knighthoods for doing a job they're already paid for. Humphrey states that civil servants work for a relatively modest wage and deserve the added incentive, prompting Hacker to counter that Humphrey makes more than him. Humphrey then tries to amend it to "relatively modest wage."

* ''Literature/TakeAGirlLikeYou'' by Creator/KingsleyAmis, comparing sex to beer:
--> Except that this is harder to get and the beer doesn’t have to like you and you think about this more and you’re proud of it afterwards and you’re not supposed to have it, I suppose it is like a glass of beer. To some people. Except that this is much nicer.
