* The US TV sitcom ''Series/TilDeath'' implies the rest of "Us Do Part."
* ''Series/BabylonFive'': One episode is called "And Now For A Word", which in the old days was usually finished with "from our sponsors." This episode is shown as an [[AlphabetNewsNetwork ISN]] documentary on the station, and includes a commercial for the [[MutantDraftBoard Psi Corps]], which has a [[SubliminalSeduction single frame with the words]], "The Psi Corps is your friend. Trust the Corps." The implication is that Psi Corps was the sponsor and that they got their word in.

** "Red Sky At Morning", from an oft-quoted mariner rhyme: "Red sky at night, sailors' delight. / '''Red sky at morning''', sailors take warning." Fittingly, in this episode, Clarke and company visit Luna's sea-dwelling people, and the trip goes awry.

* All the storylines in ''Webcomic/SkinHorse'' have Children's {{Literary Allusion Title}}s, and ''usually'' the reference is right there in the title ("I Can Fly" introduces Nick the helicopter; "Big Bad Wolves" is about werewolves).

* ''Film/AmericanAnimals'': The title comes from a quote from ''On the Origin of the Species,'' an abbreviated version of which appears as a title card: "American animals slowly migrated by successive generations from the outer world into the deeper and deeper recesses of the Kentucky caves."
