The event, dubbed "Watergate" after the hotel[[note]]Incidentally, the "gate" in Watergate refers to the wooden toll gate marking the place where the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal empties into the Potomac River. The Hotel overlooks said gate.[[/note]], was the biggest political scandal to hit the United States in recent memory. As a result virtually every political scandal (and even a ''sports'' scandal) that has happened since has had the suffix "-gate" applied to its name. Even scandals that aren't political in nature have followed this naming convention.

* A ''HomeAndAway'' storyline from 2005 centered on the paternity of Hayley Lawson's baby became unpopular with the fans, who were aware that Scott was the father from the beginning (the test results had been switched by the vengeful ex-girlfriend of the other prospective father, Kim) but were forced to sit through months of near misses with at least three other characters finding out but being prevented from revealing it for various reasons. The story is now dubbed "Paternitygate" on the Backtothebay message board.
