* ''Theatre/{{Arcadia}}'' has a healthy dose of them, but most notably Septimus and Thomasina. And possibly Valentine, but he might just be being rude.

-->'''Adams:''' Do you mean to tell me that [the Declaration of Independence] is not yet finished?!\\
'''Jefferson:''' No, sir. I mean to say that it is not yet begun.
** And then, almost immediately afterwards:
--> '''Adams:''' He has a whole week! The world was created in a week!\\
