* A comic parody of ''Film/TheOmen'' had the Antichrist Damien, at school, start a fire with telekinesis. His flustered teacher, unable to remember the telephone number for the Fire Brigade, has his memory jogged when he sees the tattoo on Damien's scalp [[note]]He reads "666" as "999"[[/note]] and later thanks him for being so helpful. In the parody, this is Damien's inevitable fate: his attempts to be the embodiment of ultimate evil always blow back on him and achieve the opposite.

* In the ''[[Series/DoctorInTheHouse Doctor in Charge]]'' episode "Honeymoon Special", newlywed doctors Lawrence and Mary Bingham have had to be driven to their honeymoon hotel by fellow doctor and Mary's ex-boyfriend, Duncan, as Lawrence's leg has been put in plaster as a prank and Mary cannot drive. As he cannot get back to London until the next morning, Duncan stays the night at the hotel and is given Room 6 and the Binghams are given Room 9. When prankster doctors Dick and Paul call the hotel to confess that Lawrence's leg isn't broken, they wake up Duncan and the Binghams. Duncan goes back to his room and slams the door, causing the "6" to flip upside-down; Mary stops at the bathroom on the way back and goes into Duncan's room by mistake, leading to a BedmateReveal when Lawrence goes to what he thinks is Room 9 and switches on the light.
