* Near the beginning of the ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' episode ''Q-less'', [[RealityWarper Q]] sends [[EnsignNewbie Dr. Bashir]] off to sleep. Potentially several days, power outages, and [[StarTrekShake graviton disturbances]] later, Bashir shows up at the end of the episode, to Dax's amusement, yawning and announcing "I feel like I've been asleep for days." [[{{Beat}} *beat*]] "Did I miss something?"
* In ''Franchise/StarTrek'', there's one which could be the longest example '''ever'''; in [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries TOS]], Kirk distracts a group of gangsters by teaching them Fizzbin, a complicated card game which he improvises on the spot. Years later, ''Deep Space Nine'' makes a reference to the game.
* An even better TOS-to-Deep-Space-Nine Brick Joke begins in "The Trouble with Tribbles," during the famous scene where Kirk opens the grain cabinet and ends up chest-deep in dead Tribbles (that's not as funny when written down out). After the Tribbles cover Kirk, the scene continues, with the occasional latent Tribble falling on him throughout. This is funny on its own, but somewhat distracting to the audience because it doesn't look like they are naturally falling from the compartment, but instead being thrown by a member of the film crew from behind-the-scenes... Nearly 30 years later, the Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine episode "Trials and Tribble-ations" sends the Deep Space Nine crew back in time to the events of the original episode, and it turns out that Sisko and Dax, in a frantic attempt to scan each Tribble for a hidden bomb from inside the compartment, were actually the ones inadvertently tossing them out of the door at Kirk.
* The ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' episode "Riddles" does this with an actual joke. At the beginning of the episode, Neelix asks Tuvok a riddle about how an ensign could survive being stranded for a year on an L-class planet with only a calendar--he ate the [[{{Pun}} dates]] from said calendar, which Tuvok [[NoSenseOfHumor hardly finds amusing]]. At the end of the episode (which Tuvok spent as a FunPersonified pastry chef after being brain-zapped until he was restored), he refers back to the riddle and says that the ensign could've also eaten the Sundays/sundaes.

* ''Franchise/StarTrek'':
** In [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries the original series]] episode "The Naked Time", Kirk catches a crew member spraying graffiti on the walls while infected by the intoxicating virus and LaughingMad. Kirk orders him to the lab. Later, Kirk contacts the lab for information on the virus. Guess who answers.

* One ''Series/ChicagoMed'' had Doctors Rhodes and Downey get into an argument after Rhodes performed a technique that conflicted with the patient's religious beliefs. (The patient and his wife were Jehovah's Witnesses.) Downey argues for putting the patient's wants first, saying that if the patient wants green bandages, he's supposed to give the patient green bandages even if that will kill him. Later, Downey goes in for surgery himself. When he wakes up from the anesthesia, he's amused to discover he's been given green bandages.

** In a season three episode, Ted is told by his attractive dermatologist that she'll say no if he asks her out that the end of their ten-week tattoo removal session. In discussion with his friends, he claims that she can't know what she'll say ten weeks in advance just like somebody doesn't know what lunch they'll order ten weeks in advance, to which Marshall responds, "Sloppy Joe, Shrimp Cocktail, and a milkshake." The end of the episode, set ten weeks later, shows Marshall eating that exact meal.
