Trigger Words

I guess this is almost more of psychological question, but I'm just wondering~

What are your trigger words? What word always comes to mind whenever you hear *that* trigger word? For example, whenever I hear coconut, I start singing "You put the lime in the coconut and shake it all up..." or when I hear bacon & eggs, I think of a joke from Dane Cook and it just makes me smile. 

In light of languages, I always seem to think "sûr la table" whenever I want to say that something is on a table, or "made", always reminds me of how I had to get used to pronouncing it as "mah-dey" if I was looking at a Japanese romanization. (まで)

I wonder if there are any that are shared or so such. =3
