** In Season 3, Wesley believes a prophecy that claims that Angel will kill his newborn son Connor and conspires with Angel's old enemy Holtz to spirit the baby away for his safety. The end result: Holtz double-crosses Wesley, and he ends up in the hospital with a SlashedThroat while Holtz escapes with Connor into the hell dimension Quor'toth, and Angel tries to kill Wesley in the hospital in a rage. Fred is the only one who visits Wesley in the hospital to offer sympathy, only to give him a WhatTheHellHero speech, stating that while she understands what Wesley was trying to do and believes Angel was in the wrong for trying to kill him, she nonetheless agrees with Angel that what happened to Connor is his fault, since they're supposed to be friends, and yet he decided to go to Holtz behind their backs rather than simply trusting them; she concludes by dropping the bombshell that the prophecy was a fake and [[ShootTheShaggyDog Wesley's actions were all for nothing]].

** The series is actually pretty fond of these:
--> '''Sheldon''': Did you just say my girlfriend is unattractive?
--> '''Howard''': Yes.
--> '''Sheldon''': Ah, because it wasn't clear.
** Or...
--> '''Amy''': Sheldon, you're a coward!
--> '''Sheldon''': Oh, yeah? Well... that seems to be the case.

* Another ''intentional'' one- when Madeleine L'Engle was asked whether the movie adaptation of AWrinkleInTime measured up to her expectations, she reportedly said, "Yes, it did. [[TakeThat I expected it to be bad, and it was.]]"

* ''Webcomic/StandStandStillStaySilent'': When the crew's vehicle breaks down for a good, Mikkel points out it fortunately happened not that far away from their final destination, where a boat is supposed to pick them up. In fact, the destination is close enough that a lightly equipped person in good condition could get there in two days with ease. This also means that the crew members themselves will be able to make the trip in a week; they are expected to bring a large quantity of books back to their employers, are running out of food and at least one of them is ill by the time this happens.

* One 1997 sketch by Creator/RoryBremner imagined UsefulNotes/TonyBlair making a victory speech to his supporters, and paying tribute to the woman who inspired him. We're led to think it's his wife... until he names her as MargaretThatcher.
