* In ''Series/{{NCIS}}'' NSA Agent Ellie Bishop is told to remain in the car since she doesn't have her pistol, while the other agents go after the suspect. When said suspect runs into the parking lot, Bishop drives up to block his escape. This act is referred to by Agent [=DiNozzo=] as 'pulling a Palmer', after a similar incident where Palmer crashes his car into a suspect's car to prevent his escape.

Added DiffLines:

** "Doing an Arsenal" refers to a team which goes on a phenomenal run early in the season, screws up in the middle part and falls down in the standings, then plays relatively well enough to guarantee a spot in a continental cup (usually the UEFA champions' league) but not well enough to win the league. This is named after the Gunners' infamous tendency to finish in 4th to 2nd place due to a mid-season slump.


Added DiffLines:

* Choking in the clutch is known by many as "[[UsefulNotes/{{NBA}} Lebroning]]" or "[[UsefulNotes/{{NFL}} Doing a McNabb]]". The former fell out of usage when LeBron James finally won a Championship in 2012.
* When NFL player Aaron Hernandez was arrested for murder, pulling a pose where one imitates being handcuffed while a shirt is placed over their arms and body (in reference to Hernandez' arrest) was dubbed "Hernandezing".

* The strategy game ''VideoGame/AgeOfEmpiresIII'' has a cheat called [[WebAnimation/TeenGirlSquad "Soo good"]], where every unit kill would be accompanied by a bugle blast and an on-screen message along the lines of "'''''KILLER UNIT'D!!!'''''". So, if one was killed by a rifleman, he would get a message called "'''''MUSKETEER'D!!!'''''" or when the killer was a cavalryman there would be a message like "'''''HUSSAR'D!!!'''''". There are even circumstances where cannons or experienced units are named, with their whole titles; "'''''IMPERIAL HOWITZER'D!!!'''''". [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome It is also awesome]].
