** In "Wilder West," they go to a dude ranch and Milo rides a horse named Psycho who, naturally, goes wild and tries to throw him off. When [[UnfazedEveryman Melissa]] asks if they can get him a calmer horse, the owner replies that Psycho ''is'' their calmest horse. "That's why we named him Psycho--on account of the irony."

** Equestria itself is ruled by a pair of princesses, rather than the queens that being called a kingdom would indicate.

He also has an [[EvilSoundsDeep excellent]] [[VillainSong singing voice]], being played by a professional opera singer.

* ''WesternAnimation/MiloMurphysLaw'' gives us this from the first episode:
-->'''[[BornUnlucky Milo]]:''' Actually, [Coyote Woods] were named after actor Creator/PeterCoyote.
-->'''[[OnlySaneMan Zack]]:''' ''Really?''
-->'''Milo:''' Yeah, he donated all this land to the city. [[BaitAndSwitch As a wolf preserve]].
-->''(Howling in distance)''
-->'''Zack:''' [[DeadpanSnarker You get how that's not better, right?]]
-->''(SmashCut to them being chased by wolves)''
** In the later episode "Smooth Opera-tor," the [[ShowWithinAShow opera that they're seeing]] focuses on two mob families named the Baritones and the Mezzo-Sopranos. However, as Milo points out, the Mezzo-Soprano parts are actually being performed by baritones.
