* In his UsefulNotes/{{W|orldWarII}}W2 memoir ''Quartered Safe Out Here'', Creator/GeorgeMacdonaldFraser notes the dilemma of safety versus being able to pull the pins quickly. Fraser also notes that if a certain British actor (Victor [=MacLaglen=]) known for doing this trope in his movies had done so during his own army service, he would have left his incisors in Mesopotamia.

Added DiffLines:

* Lampshaded and Defied in the Creator/PeterWeller / Creator/RobertHays film ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fifty/Fifty_(1992_film) Fifty/Fifty]]''. The pair are getting ready to go up against a large group of soldiers that have them pinned down, and plan to begin their counter-assault with a barrage of grenades. Jake (Weller) takes a grenade in each hand and pulls the pins with his fingers. Sam (Hays) had earlier been shot in the shoulder and held a grenade in his one good hand, attempting this trope. It doesn't work.
-->'''Sam''': ''(winces)'' OW! I damn near chipped a tooth! ''(to Jake)'' Here, pull this for me.\\
'''Jake''': ''(rolls his eyes and pulls the pin on Sam's grenade)''
