** ''Blackadder Goes Forth'' has some great fun with old-fashioned phrases which now sound, well, a bit pervy. A terrific moment in "General Hospital" is when StephenFry's General Melchett informs Blackadder that after his undercover work, "Captain Darling will pump you thoroughly in the debriefing room!" (to "pump" someone at the time meaning to question them for information); Blackadder (whose mentality was always strangely modern) replies with, "Not while I have my strength, he won't."

** It's quite amusing to see the first promo for ''Star Trek'', which proclaims it to be an "adult space adventure". They were trying to explain that ''Star Trek'' was going to be more a serious show than silly, family-oriented ''Series/LostInSpace'', but using "adult" in that context now sounds like a euphemism for [[PornTropes something else]].

* Parodied in ''GraceUnderFire'': Grace's ex-husband Jimmy found out at this father's funeral that he was a closeted homosexual. He asks Grace if he could "turn out to be gay" as well and she messes with him by asking him a series of questions about music taste and the like until she says "Yup, you're as gay as they were in 1890!". To which Jimmy replies "[[ComicallyMissingThePoint THAT gay?]]"
* The episode "Wordplay" of ''Series/TheTwilightZone'' has an interesting twist on this trope, where within a day all words suddenly change their meaning, leaving the main character with a garbled vocabulary, invoking this trope with every word.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/HellOnWheels'': Brigham Young uses the term "Jack Mormon" in reference to Eva, who says she'd been raised Mormon but no longer practices the religion. However, this is it's modern meaning (an inactive or lapsed Mormon), while in the 1800s the term means someone friendly towards Mormons or Mormonism.

* Fanny Craddock was a famous television chef in Britain during the fifties and sixties. In one programme she taught viewers how to make ring doughnuts. After the programme, the announcer spoke a line [[MemeticMutation still played on clip-shows to this day]]: "I hope all your doughnuts come out like Fanny's."

* Also, Frasier and Lilith prove how unworldly they are by naming their son Frederick ''Gaylord'' Crane. Yes, he'll have an easy time of it at school... nothing to laugh at there.
