Basic Trope: A reference to other work.

  • Straight: Charlie makes a reference Work 091 by saying the most well-known quote from that book.
  • Exaggerated:
  • Justified: Charlie is a huge Work 091 fan.
  • Inverted: Take That
  • Subverted: The audience, after some situation, expects Charlie to quote Work 091. Instead, he says an original quote.
  • Double Subverted: After Charlie says the quote, Uma comments "I admire your resistance against temptation to quote Work 091 after what just happened."
  • Deconstructed: Charlie is sued by the creator of Work 091 afterwards.
  • Reconstructed: Charlie isn't sued, but he has to pay royalties.
    • Charlie isn't sued--because the Shout-Out included due credit. The creator of Work 091 appreciates the free publicity.
  • Parodied: The Shout-Out in question takes the form of an entire well-known scene from Work 091.
  • Zig Zagged: ???
  • Averted: Nothing famous is referenced.
  • Enforced: "We need to connect with our fans more-why don't we reference Work 091?"
  • Lampshaded: "And in case you were wondering, that was a reference to Work 091."
  • Invoked: ???
  • Exploited: ???
  • Defied: "I'm not gonna reference anything!"
  • Discussed: "Now imagine if we would start quoting famous works based on a situation similar to this!"
  • Conversed: "Aren't you gonna mention Work 091?"
  • Played For Drama: Charlie is a major fan of Work 091, so much so that he constantly references it during the course of the storyline, leading other characters to wonder if he's unhealthily obsessed with it.
