* ''HowIMetYourMother'': Immediately after chastising Ted for buying a new car, Barney calls shotgun for all eternity, which he and Robin then argue about. It comes up again later when he (unsuccessfully) tries to enforce it and he and Robin get back into the argument.
* Inverted in the season two finale of ''PersonOfInterest''. When Reese and Shaw steal a sports car, Shaw hands Reese her shotgun so he won't feel inadequate while she drives.
* Used several times for comedic effect in ''TheInbetweeners''. In the episode where Simon gets his car, the boys are going to Thorpe Park, and he picks up Will first. Will naturally sits on the front seat, and when they stop to pick up Jay, Simon and Will both get out of the car to greet him. When Will is about to get back to the front seat, Jay instantly calls shotgun. Will has not heard of shotgun before, and it is explained to him, after which Jay and Simon insist he should sit at the backseat. Cue one of Will's usual "unwritten rule I have never about heard before or just don't like" rants.
