* ''Film/TheAdventuresOfBuckarooBanzaiAcrossThe8thDimension'': "Why is there a watermelon there?" "I'll explain later." ''Three entirely different reasons'' for the watermelon were given by the DVDCommentary track and two other DVD extras. (The "real" answer, from the commentary, was that it was a test to see if an overzealous nit-picking producer had stopped checking the daily rushes.)
** Also telling Perfect Tommy that he can't use any strike teams.

* ''Film/TeenWolf'': Scott's rather shady basketball coach takes him aside and tells him three rules he lives by, which include never playing cards with a man with the same first name as a city and never getting involved with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body. He never explains how he came by these pearls of wisdom.

** The novelization of ''Film/ANewHope'' has Han saying "Tocneppil doesn't count; he wasn't a Corellian. Besides, I was drunk," to Chewbacca on the subject of Corellians getting lost.



*** It may also refer to a later incident in ''Rebel Dawn''. Han brokered an arrangement with his lover, a Rebel commander, to raid a Hutt slave world (Ylesia) for its spice, slaves, and the art collection maintained by the overseer, with the help of smuggler pilots to navigate the tricky atmosphere. The Rebels, deciding they needed the credits more, screwed over the smugglers. Lando was among those who were sore at Han, thinking he was in on it or at least partly to blame. Later, the Creator/TimothyZahn novel ''Scoundrels'' (set immediately after ''A New Hope'' and thus three years prior to ''The Empire Strikes Back'') explains that Lando had forgiven Han for that one, realizing that Han probably hadn't actually been in on the scam. But then they worked together on [[TheCaper a heist of a Black Sun crime lord's mansion]] alongside several of Han's other criminal friends, with Lando opting to take a file of Black Sun's blackmail material in lieu of credits as his share of the loot. But when Han notices an Imperial Intelligence agent is watching them, he hands over a ''fake'' datapad to Lando, and also fails to warn him about the Imperial agent. Which results in Lando getting intercepted by a Star Destroyer when he tries to leave the planet. While Han insists afterwards to the rest of their crew that a share of the credits get separated out and forwarded to Lando in compensation, he didn't do so in person and thus Han had no way of knowing whether Lando had actually accepted the apology. Especially given that the fake datapad would have left Lando wondering if Han had been in on the Rebels' Ylesia scam after all.



** Until the release of ''Attack of the Clones'' in 2002, the Clone Wars itself was an enormous noodle incident since 1977.
** Timothy Zahn's "Sleight of Hand" has an in-universe one when Darth Sidious is prepping Mara Jade for her assassination attempt on Luke Skywalker (via disguising herself as a dancing girl and infiltrating Jabba the Hutt's palace during the rescue of Han Solo). He says to her, simply, "Remember Bespin" - an obvious allusion to the Cloud City confrontation in ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'', and a warning that Luke is not as weak and naïve as he might first appear.

* ''Film/SuicideSquad'' has a few, mostly as a FreezeFrameBonus when introducing the various members of the Squad. For example, Comicbook/{{Deadshot}} is appartenly an expert with (amongst [[LongList a number of other ranged weapons]]) potato cannons and ''muskets''. Comicbook/HarleyQuinn was an accomplice in the murder of Comicbook/{{Robin}} and Captain Boomerang robbed every bank ''at least'' once. Also, we learn that Enchantress was overthrown and [[SealedEvilInACan imprisoned]] thousands of years ago when her worshippers turned against her, but we never learn the details.

** There's also a couple of visual Noodle Incidents in the film. We never learn exactly how Wayne Manor became a burnt-out shell, nor the exact details of Robin's death (although the latter can be easily [[Comicbook/ADeathInTheFamily guessed at]], especially since WordOfGod confirms that it's [[Comicbook/{{Robin}} Jason Todd]]'s costume).
