Musing

I can't walk past a swiss roll in the supermarket without thinking of "The Professionals" and Bodie in particular. Hearing Santana on the radio immediately brings to mind "The Sentinel", while burritos make me think of Starsky. It's funny how these objects are so deeply associated in our minds with these characters, even though they were not ongoing parts of the series (as in First Night - the whole swiss roll thing only appeared in that one episode out of 50-odd).
Why do we make such strong associations? Is there anything else - any quirk mentioned only once in your fandom of choice - that automatically says "such and such show" to you?
