* Although it became a RunningGag, the first time Alan Davies was asked "What is the longest animal in the world?" on Series/{{QI}}, he did not immediately buzz in and say "Blue whale!". In fact, he didn't even mention any type of whale. What he actually said was "Now, the first thing that came to mind would be a really long snake, but I think that even the longest snake, it wouldn't be as long as a really really long sea animal, like a whale or something like that." The screens then flashed up "BLUE WHALE" in response, even though Alan didn't specifically say "blue whale".[[note]]The answer they were looking for was the lion's mane jellyfish, although a later episode revealed it to actually be the bootlace worm.[[/note]]

* Most people who spoof ''Series/SesameStreet'' have two characters (usually a human and a Muppet) talking directly to the viewers in a fairly condescending way ("Hi, boys and girls! We're talking about the letter A today!"). While the characters do talk directly to the viewers a lot, they never call them "kids" specifically, and most ''Sesame'' episodes actually have, y'know, a plot.

** In "The Naked Time", Sulu is often quoted as saying "I'll protect you, fair maiden!" to which Uhura replies, "Sorry, neither!" What Sulu actually says is "Aha!, fair maiden!"

** In ''Film/AnAdventureInSpaceAndTime'', a play version of the early years of ''Doctor Who'''s creation, we see children running around yelling "Exterminate, exterminate!!" at each other after the broadcast of the serial "The Daleks" to indicate the popularity of the Daleks. However, the Daleks didn't say "Exterminate, exterminate" in "The Daleks" at all - one does, at one point, remind the others that "the prisoners must be exterminated. I repeat, exterminated" in a throwaway line. Even "The Dalek Invasion of Earth" doesn't contain any Daleks yelling "Exterminate, exterminate" - although we do hear a Dalek in the background of a scene shouting "Kill, kill, kill" in a similar manner. The Daleks didn't start yelling "Exterminate" until TheStinger at the end of the last episode of "The Space Museum", leading up to "The Chase", which codified their speech patterns in general, such as "exterminate" as a CatchPhrase, the use of "I/we obey", CallingYourAttacks, and the simplified, shouty grammar.

* In ''Series/GameOfThrones'', the words of House Stark are "Winter is Coming", not and Eddard Stark himself (as well as several members of his house) issue this dire warning many times in both the [[Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire books]] and the TV series. An image of Lord Stark standing dramatically with his sword was used for a meme intending to warn about real-life winter, using the words "Brace Yourselves, Winter yourself, winter is Coming", as coming", adding the popular Internet Meme would lead you "Brace yourself" for the meme, not suggesting Lord Stark actually said that. However, the meme went viral and led to believe.numerous other "Brace yourself, X is coming" memes, all using the image of Eddard Stark. This has led many to believe that Eddard actually spoke the words "brace yourself" on screen at some point, when he never did.

** More recently, the Tenth has lamented losing his touch at reversing polarities. Even more recently, the Twelfth has stated outright that the phrase is actually meaningless, though that doesn't top his DistaffCounterpart, Clara, from "reversing the polarity" of his sonic glasses in a later episode.

* In ''Series/TheAddamsFamily'', Morticia Addams is often associated with the proverb, "Normal is an illusion. What is normal for the spider is chaos for the fly." Not once does she speak these words in the tv show or the films. She says it in the stage play, but it was clearly inspired by the meme.

** People talking about the episode "Shore Leave" often remember the character Finnegan repeatedly saying, "Fight me, Jimmy!" While he goads Kirk to fight him repeatedly, he doesn't use those exact words, and refers to Kirk as "Jimmy, m'boy".
