* ''Series/InLivingColor''. One of its recurring skits was "The Magenta Thompson Show", about a washed-up actress who claim to fame was being an extra in numerous blaxpoitation movies, whose character always got shoved out of the way and told, "Get out of my way, bitch!" To the point where even ''[[FridayThe13th Jason Voorhees]]'' [[SuddenlyVoiced said]] this to her because she was blocking his path to a victim.

** Clara (and [[spoiler: her echoes]]) and her inability to make souffles. The running gag only survived until the end of phase 1 of her story arc at the end of Series 7 and was abandoned as the character matured.

*** Sent up in "The Husbands of River Song", when River doesn't recognize the Doctor's 12 regeneration, she enters the TARDIS and tells him to prepare himself. The Doctor breaks into a huge grin and says "Finally, I get to have a go." He enters the TARDIS and goes on an epic, [[LargeHam ham-filled]] rant about how his entire mathematical concept of space was just torn apart, then quietly says "I've always wanted to see it done ''properly''."

* ''TheTenthKingdom'': After entering New York and discovering what Earth culture was like, the three Troll siblings come upon a CD boom box with the Bee Gees' ''Saturday Night Fever'' soundtrack in it. Upon hearing it, they immediately become instant fans, toting it everywhere with them and singing along as loudly and annoyingly as possible until the batteries on the boom box die. They attempt to explain the music and its origin to their father, with genuinely hilarious results -- although the usage of the Bee Gees' full name as the Brothers Gibb, hardly common knowledge, seems rather out of place, especially coming from such moronic characters who can't even read properly. (See: ''East Eighty-onest Street''.) Presumably this was included in order to avoid being obvious or [[RuleOfFunny to make it funnier]]. (And it works.) They then proceed to continue singing the song ''for the rest of the miniseries''.
