* ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|Reimagined}}''. When the crew of Galactica handbuild a stealth fighter out of spare parts, they name it "Laura" after President Laura Roslin, and naturally invite her to christen it with a bottle of champagne. Roslin raises the bottle to break it over the nose, whereupon everyone shouts "No! No!" as the fighter's hull is made from carbon fiber and is actually quite fragile. Roslin says, "Just kidding!" and settles for sprinkling some of the bubbly instead.
