*Literally, in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World''. An angry John has gone to see why Ringo has abandoned the others for the Guardians' psionics division.

* The phrase "Pulling a Homer" (meaning to succeed despite stupidity) was introduced in ''TheSimpsons'' after Homer stopped a nuclear reactor meltdown by randomly guessing which button activated the Manual Override. Twice. Using Eeny-Meeny-Miney-Moe, no less. To be fair though, if he did the same Eeny-Meeny-Miney-Moe each time he would always get the right button.
