    The original opening narration to the "Odd Couple" TV series mentioned that Oscar was Felix's "childhood friend". During the first season episode "The Jury Story", this was retconned into having Felix & Oscar meet while serving on jury duty. However, in the fifth season episode "Our Fathers", it was de-retconned to show that they had, indeed, first met as kids.

    The working title for the hit Beatles song Yesterday was "Scrambled Eggs."

    As in, Paul only had the melody for awhile so he sang "Scrambled Eggs. Oh baby how I love your legs" until he wrote the now famous lyrics.
