* [[HeartwarmingInHindsight Coincidentally]] (it ** Aragorn is the exact citation from book, but first introduced in the original it may be connected with WWI) this exchange in ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings: The ''The Fellowship Of The Ring'', which came out in November 2001:of the Ring'' as "Strider", a mysterious veteran Ranger who unexpectedly joins Frodo and his friends after they've begun their journey to Rivendell, and remains rather aloof from the rest of the Fellowship while guiding and protecting them. This actually parallels how Aragorn's actor, Creator/ViggoMortensen, joined the cast of the movie: he was an unexpected replacement for Stuart Townsend, and joined the cast [[TheOtherMarty after a few of Townsend's scenes had already been filmed]]; while most of the Fellowship's actors had time to get to know each other before filming began, Mortensen was a latecomer, and was somewhat aloof from his castmates during the early part of filming.

* "Take My Hand, Precious Lord" is a hymn about someone in deep despair begging God to comfort them and give them strength. Thomas A. Dorsey wrote it after his wife Nettie [[DeathByChildbirth died giving birth to their son]], who also died two days later.

* Alaina Huffman's pregnancy has apparently been written into ''Series/StargateUniverse''. In fact the ''Stargate'' canon has never (in 16 seasons of television starring at least one and usually two or more women) included a pregnancy it wasn't forced into by actress pregnancies. The best one is probably the first, Sha're's pregnancy with the Harcesis, which actually came about because Vaitiare Bandera was pregnant. The father was Michael Shanks, who played Sha're's husband, Daniel. Less important for the series but the same father, Dr. Lam/Lexa Doig. Note to producers: keep Michael away from your actresses.

The best one is probably the first, Sha're's pregnancy with the Harcesis, conversation which is ostensibly about the lack of funding given to the SGC, but is actually came about because Vaitiare Bandera was pregnant. The father was Michael Shanks, who played Sha're's husband, Daniel. Less important for an obvious reference to the then-recent cancellation of the show and its replacement with the series but ''[[Series/{{Eureka}} Eureka]]''. -->'''Jacek:''' I don't mind telling you, I'm a bit disappointed in this facility. I was expecting more. -->'''Carter:''' Well, at times so do we. But the same father, Dr. Lam/Lexa Doig. Note truth is the Stargate Program just doesn't get the support it used to producers: keep Michael away from the people in charge. -->'''Jacek:''' Why not? -->'''Lee:''' ''(working on something nearby)'' Eureka! One down, twelve to go. -->'''Jacek:''' That's too bad, because after all your actresses.Stargate Program has accomplished for this '''network''' of planets, I would think the decision makers would show it the respect it deserves.

* Both the first and last ''Film/{{Rocky}}'' films mirror SylvesterStallone's story of making them quite movingly. He had over 30 failed screenplays to his name before United Artists took a chance on ''Rocky'', and he was instantly catapulted to fame and fortune. Then when Stallone tried to make ''Rocky Balboa'', it was at a time when he was a laughingstock after several poor career moves, and no one thought the film could be anything but a disaster. Yet when the film was released, the fans all trumpeted it as a worthy conclusion to the story.

* In an essay ''Kafka and his precursors'', Creator/JorgeLuisBorges presents us with various literary works whose tone and material seem like forerunners of Creator/FranzKafka. Before Kafka, though, no one would have said they had much in common. Borges argues that the reality of the author's later career [[MindScrew created its precursors]], retroactively making them similar to each other! ** Borges' poem [[http://www.poeticous.com/borges/sherlock-holmes?trans=t&locale=es Sherlock Holmes]] [[CentralTheme is about how this fictional character managed to survive]] his CreatorBacklash to the point to [[OutlivedItsCreator Outlive His Creator]], realizing that literature has made an immortal character simply because SherlockHolmes was never alive. Borges published this problem at the ''Los conjurados'', his last book, and died some months after its publication.

* There's a ''lot'' of this in ''Series/{{Blackadder}} Goes Forth'' with General Melchett, played by StraightGay actor StephenFry. There's his habit of addressing Captain Kevin Darling as just "Darling" -- and then there's "Major Star," in which he falls for Hugh Laurie in drag yet finds "Bob" (a female passing for male) in "drag" utterly repulsive. ** In ''Blackadder Goes Forth'', Blackadder uncovers a spy by reciting the 'great universities': "Oxford, Cambridge, Hull", and observes that the spy failed to notice that only two of them were great universities. General Melchett chimes in, "Yes, Oxford's a complete dump." Melchett's actor, StephenFry, was an alumnus of Cambridge, whereas Blackadder's actor, Creator/RowanAtkinson, attended Oxford.

* In ''WesternAnimation/MonstersVsAliens'', the President of the United States is voiced by StephenColbert. Of course, Colbert was famous for launching (and dropping out of) a bid for the 2008 American presidency. The President character [[InkSuitActor even looks like Colbert]], albeit with a bigger chin and a more stylish hairdo.
