|Seriously? Don't bring these to our house.|
- The Da Vinci Code (yeah, it’s an old one, but the very first one that caught my eye and apparently hatched the plan to get my goat) – Remy is killed by the villain, Sir Leigh Teabing, who covers his water bottle in peanut oil. Remy does not have an Epipen on him.
- Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs – Sam Sparks has a severe allergic reaction inside the giant meateroid (yes, that is spelled correctly and no, it’s not a real thing) when she cuts herself on peanut brittle. She swells up and is taken back to the space ship for an Epipen injection, but not until a bunch of other things have happened.
- The Firm (TV series) – Mitch McDeere temporarily gets bad guy Stack out of the picture by triggering an anaphylactic reaction. When Stack uses a phone covered in peanut oil, he reacts and McDeere uses the character’s Epipen within a stated 15-minute window of safety.
