* ''Series/TheRedGreenShow'':
** In the very first episode, the lodge was trying to get a new insurance policy. Among other things, every lodge member had to get a medical examination, and there was worry about the lodge members being out of shape. One member, Noah, was obnoxiously trying to get everyone to exercise and eat healthy, and in the end, Noah was the only one who didn't get a clean bill of health. Red's response [[BreakingTheFourthWall to the audience]] was "How can you ''not'' believe in God when stuff like that happens?"
** [[InvokedTrope Invoked]] in a later Possum Lodge Word Game: Red asked about what would happen if Dalton's daughter eloped with her boyfriend, and Dalton said it would renew his faith in the Almighty.

* In ''CloneHigh'', Joan Of Arc had been trying to stop her film (which contained a declaration of her love for Abe) from being played at the school film festival. When the projection booth catches fire and Edison announces all the films got destroyed, she proclaims there is a God. She then takes it back when Edison announces that Joan's film had not only survived, but had been expanded somehow and was now in widescreen. [[spoiler: Fortunately, her work was [[TrueArtIsIncomprehensible so abstract]] that no one suspected it was Joan's love letter to Abe...save for Sigmund Freud.]]
