Sometimes the sick person may get ''more'' sick and make it a serious episode, but generally the one tending to them gets sick, and karmic payback kicks in.

* Everyone's very sympathetic about Series/{{House}}'s [[spoiler:brain cancer]] until it turns out he was faking it [[spoiler: to get into an experimental drug trial]]. In something of a subversion of the trope, what House is annoying about is insisting that he doesn't want anyone's help or sympathy for his supposed illness; he didn't even want any of his associates to find out, and when they do, by accident, he's very annoyed.

* An episode of ''StrawberryShortcake'' has one of the characters (a pony) break her leg and have to recover in the titular character's house. She suddenly started whining and making all kinds of unreasonable demands. But this was dismissed by the main character as being nothing more than boredom, even when the pony rejected all forms of entertainment. Eventually, she stopped being such a whiner and her leg got better.

* There was an episode of ''{{Steptoe and Son}}'' where Steptoe Snr was recovering from a bad back, making Harold do everything for him and constantly calling him lazy. He then discovers he is all better, but fakes illness to continue Harold waiting on him hand and foot. He's eventually caught when Harold finds evidence of him making it downstairs. The pay-back is rather amusing.
