"You know what uranium is, right?
It’s this thing called nuclear weapons.
And other things.
Like lots of things are done with uranium.
Including some bad things.
But nobody talks about that."

Not references per se, but they are on TV: I'm going through some channels. One of them has a movie called Fragile with Flockhart and Roxburgh, and the next channel has Red with Mirren and Willis. I just found that a bit funny and amusing.

^I remember there was some car commercial a few years back that played the opening strands of Thick as a Brick.  
I can understand your anger at me, but what did the horse I rode in on ever do to you?

I have no knowledge about the quality of Volkswagens nor any knowledge about their company, but I thought it was a (relatively (relative to most commercials on TV (although the use of a Rush song might make me biased))) funny commercial

Besides this, VW had one for the Rabbit that used TaaB.


There is no act more pretentious and self-indulgent than labeling another's art as pretentious and self-indulgent.

in the Adventure Time episode "I Remember You"

Ice King: Hello? Anybody home?
Marceline: (To herself) No... (She goes outside her house.) What are you doing here? I told you not to come around me!
Ice King: (Laughs) Uh, yeah, I know, but... I was hoping you could help me write a song—one that could help me get some princess action.
Marceline: I'm not gonna help you pick up on chicks!
Ice King: (Desperate) Come on! We could be a prog rock duo! I'll even split the fans with you. I get the princesses, and you get... whatever it is you're into. Sounds good, yeah, I think it does! (Beat; Marceline is scowling.) Ee-yoop!
