* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'', Cotton is playing Scrabble with his fellow WorldWarII veterans and plays "anzio". One of them challenges, and Cotton relates the stirring story of the Battle of Anzio. His friend retracts his challenge, even though it's a proper noun.

* In ''Series/{{Ellen}}'', Adam is called on his use of the word "susurrus". It turns out to be a real word, but not for a kind of dinosaur as he claimed. Not a Scrabble example, but there was an old {{MTV}} mockumentary about a boy band (''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2ge%2Bher 2ge+ her]]'') in which said boy band hosted a spelling bee where that word came up. When asked to use it in a sentence, they produced: "Hey, man: check out that sussurrus."

* [[Series/TheColbertReport Stephen Colbert]], in response to Hasbro's (or, more specifically, ''Mattel's'') proposed rule change, revealed his "new" middle name, Q[[ColossalCave xyzzy]]. it requires 0-point blank tiles to spell out, as it contains a second "z", but otherwise would be a legal word under the new rules (if it were his actual middle name). However, under those rules, Xexex (an actual arcade game) would be legal (albeit low-scoring due to 2 zero-point blanks).
