* IHaveThisFriend: A sketch from 2013 about the post office delivering certain packages on Saturday had an allusion to this, with a guy from the audience (Eddie Pepitone) asking unusually specific scenarios:
--> '''Audience member''': What if you're a stalker who sends a creepy post card to Glenn Close every day? A post card with a photo of your back, with the name "Glenn Close" shaved into it? Will they still deliver that on a Saturday?\\
'''Conan''': No, I'm sorry, sir, they will not deliver postcards.\\
'''Audience member''': All right, what if you're a stalker who sends a creepy letter to Julianna Margolis every day, a letter wherein I describe what I would do to her if we ever found ourselves in a snow-bound cabin with nothing but a futon, three crates of whip cream, and a jar of Nutella. Will they still deliver that?\\
'''Conan''': It... it's Margulies, and no, not on a Saturday.\\
'''Audience member''': All right, what if you're a stalker who sends a catalog to Annette Benning every day, an Abercrombie & Fitch catalog where I paste my head on top of all the studly young bodies with the rock-hard abs and functioning genitalia.\\
'''Conan''': They will, no, no catalogs. They will not send catalogs. No.\\
'''Audience member''': All right, what if you're a stalker- ''(Conan chuckles)'' who sends a package full of vibrators to Diane Sawyer every day, vibrators that turn red, white and blue and play the "Star Spangled Banner" when you turn them on? Will they still deliver that?\\
'''Conan''': Yes, in fact, they will deliver packages.\\
'''Audience member''': ''(holding package that's playing the "Star Spangled Banner")'' You hear that, Diane? It's in the mail! ''(runs out)''

*** A similar joke was said when he and Creator/ElijahWood played ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV'' when referencing fighting a giant worm boss: "Last time I beat on a worm for 72 hours, I was in college!"

* ConstructionCatcalls: Subverted in the first episode of Conan's week of shows in Harlem from 2017: A construction worker called out various women in the audience, but instead of shouting lewd things to them, he shouted very politically correct things in the same tone as catcalling.

* InherentlyFunnyWords: Referenced in the 10/30/17 monologue:
--> '''Conan''': Disgraced Congressman Anthony Wiener- ''(audience laughs)'' That's his ''name''! Come on! Let's grow up here! It's the easiest guy to do jokes on, 'cause I just report on him and they start giggling. "Hehe, you said "wiener"!"
