->"'Ring around the rosie. A pocketful of posie. Ashes ashes, we all fall down.' Some people say that this poem is about the Black Death, the fourteenth-century plague that killed 100-million people... Sadly, though, most experts think this is nonsense... How can I be so sure about this rhyme when all the experts disagree? Because I ate the kid who made it up."''

* In ''Literature/HoratioHornblower and Noah's Ark'', Midshipman Hornblower is sent to pick up supplies from the city of Oran on the day of a plague outbreak. Facing a three-week quarantine in a plague city with a crew of panicky men and a delay in desperately-needed foodstuffs, Hornblower asks and is allowed to spend the period on the ship--they're more effectively quarantined at sea than anywhere else and it gets them back to the fleet quickly. (Fortunately, they evade contagion.)


Added DiffLines:

* The second ''Series/HoratioHornblower'' telefilm is based in part on ''Hornblower and Noah's Ark''. While quarantined at sea, one of the sailors starts weaving and swaying, prompting the others to try and toss him overboard using spars until Hornblower steps in. There's a tense moment when Hornblower gets close to the man, but a sniff of his breath shows that he's just drunk. Later, the reckless Dreadnought Foster takes some cattle before the quarantine is up, over Hornblower's voluble protests.

The pathogen ''Yersinia pestis'', believed to have originated in Asia, has caused some of the deadliest pandemics in human history, peaking in Europe between 1348 and 1350 in the Great Pestilence with strains continuing until the 1700s. Both the event and the disease are also known by the name given by later writers, The Black Death. Experienced by the whole of Eurasian/Mediterranean civilization to some degree, it so traumatized the human race that the formal name the disease was given in Europe, derived from the latin words for ''to strike down'', and ''to lament''[[note]]''plaga'' and ''plangere'' respectively[[/note]], is to this day synonymous with both "widespread threat to society" and "lethal contagious disease": ThePlague.
