** In "The Gift," Buffy's last words to Dawn before her HeroicSacrifice are "The hardest thing in this world is to live in it," begging Dawn to be brave and live. In "[[MusicalEpisode Once More, with Feeling]]," Buffy reveals that the other Scoobies [[UnwantedRevival actually pulled her out of Heaven when they resurrected her]] and openly [[DrivenToSuicide attempts to dance to the point where Sweet's powers begin to incinerate her]], only for Spike [[BigDamnHeroes to step in and stop her just in time]]; upon which, Dawn throws that very same line back at Buffy.

* ''Series/TheBlackDonnellys'': The finale has Jimmy trying to get somewhere after being stranded. He finds a car and hot-wires it. Joey explains how he knew how to do this by telling about the time their father tried to hot-wire a van to take the family on vacation. He fails and they have to cancel their vacation. Joey laughs "That's the Donnellys. They never could make it more than a block outside their neighborhood." At the end, they gather up their closest allies and friends and try to make a run for it, only to be ambushed by Dokey. In their effort to escape, [[spoiler:their mother]] is shot and seemingly killed. Joey repeats his previous comment, only more grimly.

* ''Series/{{Sisters}}''. Middle sister Georgie's therapist convinces her that she was molested by her father and seduces her after convincing her to turn her back on her disbelieving family. Her attempts at filing a complaint prove futile after he denies everything and he tauntingly suggests that she get professional help. After she sends in another sister as a HoneyTrap, she tells him the exact same thing. Given the high likelihood that she's not the only woman he's done this to, she's probably right.

** Cersei begins shrieking, "I am the Queen!", exactly the same way Margaery did when she was arrested by the Faith Militant. It's also not dissimilar to what her beloved son said previously, "I am the KING!"

* ''Series/YesPrimeMinister'': Sir Humphrey makes a big show of chewing Bernard out for allowing the Prime Minister's constituency agent into Number Ten without a proper pass, despite Bernard's assurance that the constituency agent is known and recognised by the police and staff; he orders Bernard to ensure that all who enter Number Ten via the front door must either have a proper pass, an appointment or must be otherwise cleared. Humphrey's pomposity comes back to bite him later in the episode when he's paranoid about his job because he's gradually being denied entry to Number Ten; he attempts to enter via the front door, but the policeman guarding the door stops him from entering because he has no appointment, no Number Ten pass and Bernard cannot be found to clear him.

* ''Series/YesMinister'': Hacker and Sir Humphrey are [[HauledBeforeASenateSubcommittee Hauled Before A Select Committee]] on government waste, and must explain the DAA's shocking expenditures. They manage to get their stories straight behind closed doors and are ready to present a united front. However, Hacker is called to a meeting with the PM's special adviser, who tells him that they want the waste to come to light so the PM can use it as ammo in his larger plan to cut public spending. He also tells Hacker that he has become too close to the DAA, and that Humphrey has called him "a pleasure to work with"- Civil Service code for "easily controlled". At the hearing, Hacker promises a full, independent investigation lead by a key whistleblower, throwing the department and by extension Humphrey under the bus, claiming that Humphrey is completely behind him: "If I may say so, he is a pleasure to work with".

** In ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS36E12TheDoctorFalls The Doctor Falls]]'', the Doctor explains to a Cyberman that he is not ''''a doctor,'''', he is ''''[[Main/SpellMyNameWithAThe The Doctor]]''''. By the end of the episode, after prompting him for his identity, [[spoiler: the First Doctor replies with "No, no, no! You might be ''''a doctor'''', but I am ''''The Doctor''''. The original, you might say." (itself echoing the Fourth Doctor's classic quip to Harry Sullivan "You might be a doctor, but I am The Doctor. The definite article, you might say.")]]
