* ''Film/TwoThirtySeven'': [[spoiler:It's not always obvious when somebody's suicidal. Or as Luke puts it: "Sometimes, you just get so wrapped up in your own problems that you just don't notice anybody else."]]



* Quoth the ''Film/DoctorStrange2016'' movie: "Driving while distracted can be hazardous for both you and others around you. Please drive responsibly." Dr. Strange fails to heed this advice and gets a car crash, two shredded hands, and a premature end to his surgery career for his trouble.
* The title character in ''Film/DropDeadFred'' tells Elizabeth at the end that she's never really alone as long she had herself.

* Lampshaded in ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'': when Jazz is being overprotective at the beginning of "Secret Weapons", Danny tells her, with a bored expression on his face, that "There's a rhythm to these things: ghost attacks, we exchange WittyBanter, I kick ghost butt, and we all go home having learned a valuable lesson about honesty or some such nonsense." Whoopie. This is also a slight breaking of the fourth wall, as it's the basic layout of each show.

* Lampshaded in ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'': when Jazz tries to organize a plan, Danny tells her, with a bored expression on his face, that the plan is to go try and beat up the bad guy, get beaten up yourself, run around for a while trying to fix things, finally beat the bad guy, and go home having learned a lesson about how the world works.

* ''Recap/BlackMirrorTheNationalAnthem'': Actually a rare in-universe example. A British princess is kidnapped, and the ransomer releases a YouTube video making a singular demand of the Prime Minister: he must [[BlackComedyRape have sex with]] [[BestialityIsDepraved a pig]] on live television or the princess will be killed. After doing everything in his power trying and failing to stem the resulting media circus and generally find a way out of the situation, half an hour before the PM is set to do... ''it'', the princess is released without so much as a broken hair on her head, out into the streets of London which are completely deserted because everybody is in their homes preoccupied with watching the Prime Minister fuck a pig. Would probably also count as a BrokenAesop considering the orchestrator kidnapped and threatened a completely innocent princess and used the worst kind of public humiliation and sexual coercion to teach a strange moral lesson.

The episode ends with a moral ''à la'' ''Literature/AesopsFables''. Either the last line of the episode summarizes the whole point of the episode, or it leaves the viewer with the issue that the writers want them to ponder. [[TheFifties 1950s]] [[SitCom sitcoms]] often end on the "Gee, I learned my lesson," type of moral, while ''Series/LawAndOrder'' leaves you pondering. Since some shows seem to contractually require one moral per episode, you often end up with a BrokenAesop.

And when asked what of the ones that never got to know what the intended meaning was: "He is supposed to sense it - and in the lack of sensation, [[TheDevil the guy with the hoof]] has a good bait."

** The endings present another one: [[spoiler:Don't condemn others for their sins, for you too are a sinner. Cuphead and Mugman handing over the Soul Contracts to the Devil rather than saving his debtors results in them becoming evil themselves and becoming loyal minions of the Devil, while saving them results in a happy ending where everyone is freed. Condemning the debtors does ''not'' make you the good guy, showing them mercy does.]]
