-->'''Lily''': God, you guys are covered in sauce. We'll get to that. Me first. My mom is driving me crazy about the wedding music. The woman takes one cruise to Jamaica, and suddenly, it's "not a party without steel drums." Doesn't everybody know you're not supposed to stress out a bride right before her wedding?!

After trying to break the news to her gently, Rocky gives up.
* A variation is used in ''OldSchool'' (2003?), except one of the main characters is interrupted by one of the worst coincidences in the world.
* Happens almost verbatim in the recent ''[[Film/HowToTrainYourDragon How To Train Your Dragon]]'' movie:
