* ''MyDadTheRockStar'': When Rock Zilla's alma mater granted him a honorary doctorate, he thought he'd be that kind of doctor and started practicing the shout of "Calling Doctor Zilla". When he was told it wasn't that kind of doctorate and he'd instead be a sort of professor, he shouted "Calling Professor Zilla".

* ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'':
** In the half-hour special "The Dome Experiment", the park workers are trapped in the park when Maellard lets scientists put a dome over it [[ForScience for unexplained reasons]], and [[FrameUp Benson is blamed for getting the date wrong]]. He then becomes obsessed with [[ClearMyName proving his innocence]] (even though the others quickly stopped caring) and breaks into the scientists' lab to find proof that he didn't mix up the dates. Instead he finds [[EvidenceDungeon plans for the dome and evidence proving they were intentionally trapped]], which he immediately disregards and keeps looking for his printed-out email.
** Benson manages to do it again in "Chili Cook-off", when he breaks into Gene's office to find proof that he cheated in the eponymous cook-off. Instead he finds ''another'' EvidenceDungeon with a portrait of Maellard, Gene, and the head scientist running the dome experiment, a list of shell corporations, more dome plans, and Gene's list of expenses mentioning ''2 trillion dollars'' he spent on their Masonic lodge. [[WhatAnIdiot He then confronts Gene over the pepper stems in his garbage.]]

* Played with in ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'''s "M. Night Shaym-Aliens!" Rick is pointing out things that don't make sense [[spoiler:to convince Morty that they're in a simulation]], specifically a living Pop Tart with a toaster-themed house and car. Morty agrees, noting that a Pop Tart would be too scared of toasters to live in one. Rick cites this trope as he clarifies his point -- its car is ''also'' a toaster, and someone's car is not normally a smaller copy of their house -- but really, both observations are valid.

** Dale manages to do a single-person version of this by relating to Hank about how 9 months before the birth of his son, he was watching aliens while his wife was with some other guy. Hank says, "Your wife loves you," but then Dale comes to the conclusion that his son is an alien, and asks Hank if there's any better explanation. Obviously there is, but Hank decides to refrain from pointing out the obvious.
** Even better, in the episode where Dale's wife ends the affair, Dale notices that every time she gets a headache, she calls in John Redcorn to give her a massage, and comes to the obvious conclusion: her headaches are a cry for attention, and he's been selfishly pawning her off on someone else instead of taking care of herself. When Redcorn sneaks into their bedroom later to try and patch things up, Dale mistakes him for a burgler and knocks him out with a lamp. Dale is the one who feels guilty for this and in order to make good he helps Redcorn recover his peoples' lands, which ironically helps end the affair because Redcorn feel guilty about betraying Dale's honest friendship and kindness.
** In the first season, Bobby went to [[SpecialGuest Willie Nelson's]] house to try to apologize for accidently hitting him with a golf club... But there was some confusion at first:
-->'''Nelson:''' Wait, I know you... You're the kid who rakes my lawn.
-->'''Bobby:''' No, I'm the kid who hit you.
-->'''Nelson:''' With a rake?
-->'''Bobby:''' No, with a golf club!

John Redcorn. Hank says, "Your wife loves you," you!", but then Dale comes to the conclusion that the aliens impregnated Nancy to take his son is an alien, attention away from them, and asks Hank if there's any better explanation. [[ChocolateBaby Obviously there is, is]], but Hank decides to refrain from pointing out that out. Dale later comes to the obvious.
conclusion that the aliens abducted him and used his own sperm to impregnate Nancy, therefore Joseph is his biological son after all, although he might have only said that to make Joseph feel better, as Joseph was having somewhat of an identity crisis after being told he was half-alien.

** When Dale's father tries to come out to him as gay, he doesn't directly say it, only saying that the rodeo he works at is a gay rodeo and that his "friend" isn't just his friend, but his partner. Dale is disgusted, and tells his father to get out of his sight. After all, his father obviously just confessed to being a ''[[DiscriminateAndSwitch government agent]]'', the greatest enemy of conspiracy nuts like Dale all over the world. Why else would the biggest ladies man Dale has ever known be working at the gay rodeo, [[BuddyCopShow and with a partner]]? The two of them must be undercover! He eventually does find out the truth, though, and it doesn't bother him that his father is gay. After all, [[MistakenForGay he's been friends with John Redcorn for years]]!

--->Explanation for the uninitiated: in the FiM setting, "cutie marks" are symbols that appear on a pony's flanks when they figure out what their special talent is, and what they want to do with it. In other words, they are markers that a pony ''has'' "found out who they are". That's the whole ''point'' of them.
