Note: If a series is named after a [[CharacterTitle central character]], [[ThePlace setting]], group, etc., it does not count as a Title Drop, unless they are usually called by another name. Hence, ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'', ''Series/TheWestWing'', ''Series/{{House}}'', and things like that don't qualify, and are better examples of the trope ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. Often, the Title Drop will finally explain why the episode/book/etc is called that way to begin with. If this explanation comes by ''[[ShowDontTell showing instead of by telling]]'' (i.e. it is not actually spoken aloud by any of the characters), then it's TheNamesake.

If a line of dialogue is the title of the episode, movie, or book, it obviously must have some great significance. If it sounds completely random, that just means the true meaning of the title has yet to be revealed. So when a character is heard using the title in dialogue, the audience sits up and takes notice, because the scriptwriter has just planted a neon sign that flashes [[AC:THIS CONVERSATION IS IMPORTANT.]]

Title Drops aren't always deliberate or premeditated (i.e. the writer takes the title and inserts it for effect). Sometimes the creative process runs the other way, and a phrase from the body of the work will be picked out and used as the title (sometimes [[WorkingTitle the title is the last thing to be nailed down]]).
