* The [[Creator/BenFolds Ben Folds Five]] song "Steven's Last Night In Town" is about a slick outsider who blows into town, charms a whole circle of friends, then starts finding excuses not to go away.
-->Well, we thought he was gone\\
But he's come back again\\
Last week it was funny\\
And now the joke's wearing thin\\
Because everyone knows now that every night now will be\\

* Becomes a major plot point in ''Theatre/KingLear''. After abdicating the throne and giving his daughters Goneril and Regan one half each of the kingdom to rule, Lear himself decides to spend the rest of his days living with them in alternating months. The problem is that Lear insists on traveling with a retinue of one hundred knights; the group spends all day on the castle grounds hunting or generally tromping around making a mess of things, then show up at the main house each night and demand to be waited on hand and foot. Goneril and Regan, while certainly [[BitchInSheepsClothing far from pure of heart]], are ''very'' justifiably angry about their father's treatment of them (especially considering that they have to ''run all of England'' during this time), and scheme to either kick Lear out or get him to make some concessions. He refuses, and the princesses proceed to banish him and his servants from their estates, leaving the former king homeless.
