Hey, it's pop fiction!

"Hey, did you hear about HORRIBLE THING?"
"Boy, yeah, what a mess. I hope HORRIBLE THING doesn't happen to us."
"It's okay, I'm sure it won't. After all, we live in NICE NEIGHBORHOOD with NO KNOWLEDGE OF POPULAR CULTURE."
[HORRIBLE THING happens down the block.]
"But this can't be! It's not real!"
"Y'know, this is just like POP CULTURE REFERENCE."
"Come on, man. Everyone knows POP CULTURE REFERENCE isn't real. Besides, we live in NICE NEIGHBORHOOD, and HORRIBLE THING doesn't happen here, because DELUSION."
"Phew, you're right. What was I thinking?"
[HORRIBLE THING keeps happening.]
"Oh no! HORRIBLE THING is really real!"
"Quick, toss me my EARLIER REFERENCE or perhaps even some DEUS EX MACHINA!"
[Hands over DEUS EX MACHINA]
[Kills/fights/subdues HORRIBLE THING]
"Man, that was close. I'm glad HORRIBLE THING is over with."
"So am I, friend. So am I."
[Lather, rinse, repeat.]
