* In en episode of ''Series/CrazyExGirlfriend'', a character and her husband don't just say the title of the show...they say [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ah2nO-etuIA&sns=tw the entire expository theme song]], which is then followed by the show's title card. (This was subtly foreshadowed earlier, since the theme song and title card had been missing.)

* The first season of ''Series/UpstairsDownstairs'' gives us a Theme Music Drop ... twice. Partway through the season, the show's closing theme crops up as a music-hall song performed in-story by a recurring character. Then, in the season's final episode, the show's opening theme is played on the organ at another character's wedding.

** The pilot episode had a newspaper headline proclaiming "Arrested Developer!"
** The episode "Justice is Blind" had a particularly clever one. [[spoiler:"Justice" is the name of Maggie's alleged seeing-eye dog.]]



* On ''Series/OrphanBlack'', Sarah asks her foster mother Mrs. S. where she came from. Turns out she was an orphan brought in from the underground... or, as S. describes it, "from the black."

** Used fairly straight the first time in ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS1E1AnUnearthlyChild An Unearthly Child]]'', where the Doctor had no clue who "Dr. Foreman" was supposed to be, and mostly used as an in-joke since.
** And sometimes when he does. In ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS3E8TheGunfighters The Gunfighters]]'', he introduced himself with a very long, muttered name, provoking the response "Doctor ''who''?"

(The title of "Bad Wolf" had, of course [[ArcWords already been dropped all over the series]].)
