** In Theater/HenryVIPart3, things are going badly for the Yorkists at the Battle of Towton. The leaders gather and exchange poetic speeches about how badly it's going, that being how characters do things in these plays. Warwick reproves them thusly:
-->''Why stand we like soft-hearted women here,''
-->''Wailing our losses, whiles the foe doth rage;''
-->''And look upon, as if the tragedy''
-->''Were play'd in jest by counterfeiting actors?''

* The play (and later film) ''Theatre/ArsenicAndOldLace'' has a classic moment when [[OnlySaneMan one character]], who is [[InformedAbility allegedly]] an intelligent and erudite theater critic, starts talking about how a character in a play who is supposed to be intelligent [[IdiotBall does something really stupid]]. You see, in that play, the allegedly smart guy was in a house with a bunch of murderers, and he doesn't try to leave. He doesn't even have the sense to be scared! Instead, he sits down in a chair and stops paying attention, while one of the murderers sneaks up behind him and ties him up with the curtain cord! Meanwhile, the theater critic, who also happens to be in a house full of murderers and not at all concerned about this, sits down in a chair, and one of the murderers sneaks up behind him and ties him up with, you guessed it, the curtain cord!

** There's also a gag about one of the characters looking uncannily like Creator/BorisKarloff. Guess who played that character in the original production?

* Which was both pointed out in-character and basically became a plot point in Terry Pratchett's ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' novel ''Maskerade'' that gave its own spin to the ''The Phantom of the Opera'' plot by [[SubvertedTrope subverting]], [[DoubleSubversion double subverting]], [[{{Deconstruction}} deconstructing]] and [[SatireParodyPastiche parodying]] the hell out of it.
