* Spoofed in the ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' episode "Wasted Talent", where Peter accidentally says "Look over there!" to Lois and "Run!" to the cops who caught them drinking at a teen party. Oddly enough, it ''works''. Considering that the cops were hassling them for being a little old for drinking at an underage party, one would have to consider this an intentional {{inver|tedTrope}}sion.

** Another subversion is when Homer yells out "Look, a bear!" seemingly in an effort to escape from the hospital without paying his bills. Unfortunately, since he was in for a broken leg, he doesn't get very far - and while we're busy laughing at that, pan right to reveal that there ''is'' a bear!
