- Subverted: Alice asks her question the audience is dying to know the answer of, but tells Bob "oh nevermind, I already figured out the answer", after which she asks no more questions.
- Double Subverted: After saying "Oh nevermind", Alice realizes she does not know or had the wrong answer, and goes back to her usual questioning.
- Parodied: Alice is a Motor Mouth asking question after question after question, not even bothering to listen to the answers.
- Alice is shunned and avoided by her peers for her constant, ceaseless questioning.
