Added DiffLines:

* Jim Williams airily drops the line in ''Film/MidnightInTheGardenOfGoodAndEvil'' after John Kelso spots a copy of his book, which wasn't exactly a bestseller, on Jim's bookshelf while doing a puff piece for a magazine on Jim's annual Christmas party. Actually a {{justified}} use: Jim then explains that liked the book and specifically requested Kelso for the article.

Added DiffLines:

*The basis of Aaron's worldview in ''Literature/{{Unsong}}'' to the point that his signature quote is "This is not a coincidence because nothing is ever a coincidence." This is pretty reasonable, considering that he practices magic based on the reverse engineering the nature of God from so called coincidences (and the [[WorldOfPun omnipresent puns]]) and the settings main other form of magic is based on NarrativeCausality.

* ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron:'' At the end of the movie, Thor points out that in the years since the Avengers formed, they've ran into three of the [[spoiler:Infinity Stones]]. His refusal to believe this is a coincidence is what spurs him to leave, and investigate further.

* ''Series/{{Farscape}}'' references AlbertEinstein just to hammer in, "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=srHJBueSx40 Yeah, Scorpius has your number, Crichton]], ''and he will never stop screwing with you!''"

* The reason [[AlbertEinstein Einstein]] did not like quantum mechanics relating to chance was because of this. "Quantum mechanics is certainly imposing, but an inner voice tells me that it is not yet the real thing. The theory says a lot, but does not really bring us any closer to the secret of the 'old one'. '''I, at any rate, am convinced that He does not throw dice'''." [[note]] Technically, he didn't believe in randomness beyond the laws of physics and the boundary conditions of the universe. Those two things can still cause some pretty coincidental stuff to happen, just like pseudo-random number generators can cause coincidences in computer games. [[/note]]
