* In ''Literature/TrickyBusiness'', Wally's rock band Arrival plays a disastrous gig at a redneck bar that ends in a BarBrawl and one of his bandmates being sent to the emergency room (the injury report from which inspires [[AGoodNameForARockBand a cool new name for the band]]). When the owner tells Wally that he doesn't want Arrival to ever play there again, Wally tells him that he was thrilled to meet the original cast of ''Film/{{Deliverance}}'', a reference that sails over the owner's head.
