During Boromir’s death scene in the Fellowship of the Ring film, you a hear a choir in the soundtrack. The choir isn’t singing random vowel sounds; they’re actually singing in Elvish.
The English translation of the lyrics? It’s a line from the books: “I do not love the sword for its sharpness, nor the arrow for its swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only what they defend.”
For bonus hurt points– in the book, those lines were said by his little brother Faramir.

A few weeks in Selina gets dragged into it, and starts offering advice on caring for cats with special dietary needs and stuff. It inevitably turns into Jackson-Galaxy-esque explinations.

Instead of “be the x number caller” giveaways, they have “answer the Riddler” giveaways. This gets slightly more complicated when Harley starts awarding the prize to the answer that is technically correct, but horribly wrong at the same time.
“What is in my pocket?”
Harley, clearly having the time of her life, “While that is NOT the answer that is totally right.” Behind her, you can distantly hear riddler bleeding into his brain.
