** An episode guest-starring Creator/JimCarrey featured two ads spoofing Creator/MatthewMcConaughey's advertisements for Lincoln Mercury, with Carrey as [=McConaughey=] musing nonsensically whilst driving a Lincoln and rubbing the fingers of one hand together. Later, the episode ran a spoof of an Allstate ad featuring Kenan Thompson as Dennis Haysbert touting the benefits of Allstate for good drivers... only for him to suddenly be hit by a Lincoln driven by Carrey's [=McConaughey=], now wearing his tie as a bandanna.

* ''Series/{{Coach}}'' has a great brick joke in the episode "That Shouldn't Happen". The episode starts off with an announcement of the signing of a superstar quarterback. At the signing, a local channel offers a half hour show to Hayden as an aside at the announcement. After other build ups, Hayden injures the quarterback just before the game when high-fiving him. Hayden goes into a downward spiral, along with his fellow team members. At the very end of the episode, when Hayden hits his lowest point, the TV crew shows up at his home to film his show.

* ''Series/TheJoeyBishopShow'': Episode "The Fashion Show" has a classic, hilarious long brick joke, possibly even the trope namer, starting with a joke about a precise builder ending up with an a seemingly nonsense punchline about an extra brick he throws away. Followed by a joke about a lady with a dog confronting a man with a pickle on a train. The brick returns as the punch line.

*** The Fifth Doctor had previously been knighted by King John, but [[spoiler: that was actually Kameleon in disguise]].



** At the end of [[Recap/DoctorWhoS29E2TheShakespeareCode "The Shakespeare Code"]] Queen Elizabeth I arrives at the Globe Theater, much to the delight of the Doctor. Immediately upon seeing him, however, she shouts "Doctor! My sworn enemy! OFF WITH HIS HEAD!" This isn't explained for over two years, until, early on in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E17E18TheEndOfTime "The End of Time"]], the Doctor mentions to Ood Sigma that he ''married'' her, and apparently her nickname is no longer . . . ''ahem''. Three years after that, in [[Recap/DoctorWho50thASTheDayOfTheDoctor "The Day of the Doctor"]], the wedding was actually shown.

* ''Series/TheOrville'':
** One episode has the crew deal with a subspace anomaly which, among other things, causes some plants on the ship to whither and die. Captain Mercer jokingly asks if someone's been watering them and is told that's the responsibility of one particular crew member. Mercer doesn't know the crew member by name, so he's described and the captain reveals that he normally gives a non-committal greeting to the guy. Later, we see a crew member who fits this description and the captain gives him said non-committal greeting.

** At the very beginning of the episode [[Recap/DoctorWhoS29E1SmithAndJones "Smith and Jones"]], Martha Jones first meets the Doctor when he steps in front of her in a crowd of people, takes his tie off and waves it in her face, says "Like so", and walks off. When she arrives at the hospital, she sees the Doctor being examined. [[ItMakesSenseInContext Technically, this is when the Doctor first meets her.]] The rest of the episode consists of the hospital being sent to the Moon, avoiding an army of rhino-men and fighting a vampire. When that's finally over, the Doctor explains to Martha who, and what, he is, and that the police box is a ''time machine''. When she doesn't believe him, he says he'll prove it to her, and gets inside the TARDIS and it disappears . . . only to reappear seconds later, and he steps out, holding his tie in his hand and waving it at her.
