Added DiffLines:

* In the beginning of the third act of ''Film/SpiderManFarFromHome'', Peter wakes up in a Dutch municipal jail with three kindly FootballHooligans. They’re all wearing the national team’s kit. It’s never stated what exactly they did to get there but they’re on FirstNameBasis with the guard so it seems like a regular event.


** The marines discuss "Acturian poontang".

Added DiffLines:

* A former mobster, coincidentally nicknamed "Noodles", in ''Film/OnceUponATimeInAmerica'' returns in 1968 to New York City for the first time since he quit the mob life back in 1933. Nothing is revealed of what his life has been between those 35 years, except hints that he's lived an ordinary, law-abiding life under a different name.


** When Han and crew are attempting to land at Cloud City in ''The Empire Strikes Back'' and the security cloud cars are giving them a hard time, Chewie suggests something that is, as usual, [[TheUnintelligible unintelligible]]. Han responds, "Well, that was a long time ago. I'm sure he's forgotten about that." He hasn't: "You've got a lot of nerve coming here... After what you pulled." This, too, has been explained in the [=EU=] - in the third novel of the ''Han Solo Trilogy'', Han and a bunch of other smugglers aided the Rebel Alliance in taking the planet Ylesia with the expectation that they'd be paid. Instead, the Rebels took everything for themselves, and the other smugglers believed Han was in on it the whole time (he didn't, and got stiffed too, but nobody believes him), with Lando telling him he never wanted to see Han again when Han comes to him sometime afterward.
** How Lando Calrissian managed to get the position of General in the Rebel Alliance in ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'' was also a NoodleIncident, with the only thing known about it was that it involved a maneuver during the Battle of Tanaab that was strongly implied to be ace-level (The novelization added that he did it purely because somebody wagered that he couldn't). The [=EU=] explains this where he manages to down about 20 enemy ships with nothing but a tractor beam generator and some asteroids within Taanab's rings.

This incidentally also explains why Han (and later, other smugglers) is very reluctant to join or work with the Rebels after that.

** ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' has Finn refer to the Trillia Massacre, which involved creatures called Rathtars, but he pointedly doesn't elaborate on it to Rey. The {{Novelization}} only describes it as "an incident so vile and depraved that he wished only to assure himself she knew nothing about it."

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/WarriorsOfVirtue'': We know that Yun killed Elysia's brother. But we never learn anything else about it or the circumstances of it. It's possible that he was a civilian and he may have gotten caught in the crossfire of Yun and Komodo's minions' fight. Another possibility would be he followed Komodo, just as Elysia ends up doing.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/PetticoatPlanet'': While explaining how easily he gets drunk, Steve mentions an incident of a space station involving tequila shooters and Jolt Cola, before deciding that the story doesn't really need to be told.


* In ''WesternAnimation/ABugsLife'', Thorny mentions Flik's Tunnel-Within-A-Tunnel Project. It took the whole Engineering Department two days to dig him out.

Added DiffLines:

* Watson mentions several in ''Film/HolmesAndWatson'', with the most notable being when he thinks he is about to fight Klinger and says it "won't be the first time I've beaten up a cripple".


** [[Film/BackToTheFuture The first film]] implies that Marty (or his dad, in the original timeline) wasn't the first guy to get hit by Sam Baines' car.

* Played for ''no laughs at all'' in ''Film/TheHunted''. The police finally capture rogue black ops agent Aaron Hallam, played by Benicio del Toro, who proceeds to name the classified operations he'd been made to carry out by codename, until Tommy Lee Jones stops him.

* In the ''Film/StarTrek'' reboot, Scotty's been exiled to the middle of nowhere for some experiment involving transporters and "Admiral Archer's prized beagle." It is heavily implied -- but not actually said -- that he transported the beagle to prove his theories. Indirectly subverted -- if inexplicably -- in the novelization when [[spoiler:the beagle rematerializes on the ''Enterprise.'' [[MST3KMantra Try not to think about it too hard.]]]]
* In ''Film/StarTrekIntoDarkness'', Bones tells Carol that he once performed a Cesarean-section on a Gorn and delivered octuplets. The Noodle Incident is ''how'' he found himself in that situation to begin with (the Gorn aren't friendly with the Federation).
