Mr. White has a one in three chance of hitting his target, Mr. Grey a two in three chance, and Mr. Black is a perfect shot. To make things fair, Mr. White has the first shot. Who should he shoot?

* It's really more of a ''sixth'' option, but in "The Five Sons" the titular group have rescued a princess, and each has an equal right to marry her. After much argument and rumination, the king decides to marry the princess off to their ''father'', since he'd technically had the biggest role in her rescue (by fathering the kids and urging them to [[EigenPlot go find useful trades]]).

* A skit for {{MTV}}'s website had Creator/AnthonyMackie and Creator/PaulBettany both trying to convince Josh Horowitz to buy an action figure of the respective [[Comicbook/TheAvengers Avenger]] they portray in the [[MarvelCinematicUniverse movies]] (Comicbook/TheFalcon for Mackie and Comicbook/TheVision for Bettany) for his nephew. After several minutes of both actors arguing and taking shots at each other's careers, Josh buys an Comicbook/IronMan figure instead. This causes Mackie and Bettany to angrily yell "[[Creator/RobertDowneyJr Downey!]]" in unison.
