I forget the specific date (it was a few years before his passing, in the early 90s), name of special and anything else, but I recall a Jacques Cousteau special where the Calypso and the other boat (Alycon?) visit New Zealand. In one scene, an adventurer/guide is leading Mr. Cousteau himself on a trek through a rain forest where the mossy ground is very soft and peaty. Jacques kept sinking into it up to his shins and explained in a very amused and surprised response, "Zit is like kvicksand, Zit is like kvicksand!"

Okay, it's not necessarily quicksand -- but it was humorous enough, and it certainly stuck out in my mind over the years.
