I remember the Cold Case episode well. It was a good one. They always feature a certain band each episode.

I can't remember the name of the movie with Liam Neeson about the kidnapping of his daughter. I think she was going to see a U2 concert when she got kidnapped. It was about 2 years ago or so.

Yes, the daughter in question was not only going to one U2 show.  She was going to travel around Europe and follow the band!  Great concept

1. Entourage - "I Love You Too" (Season 2) - Ari gets Drama tix to see U2 on the Vertigo Tour. The last 2 minutes of the episode are the group of boys at a show during "COBL" and Bono says happy birthday to Drama.

2. Friends - Not sure of the episode but Ross dedicates "With or Without You" to Rachel when he makes a list of her faults and she breaks it off...again.

Wrong.

Awesome Liam Neeson. If only he brought that awesomeness to Qui-Gon Jinn.

In the Rifftrax for The Happening, Kevin Murphy makes this funny joke.

Bono was mentioned last night on NCIS (incorrectly referred to as being British).
