* ''TheBigBangTheory'': in season 1, Sheldon gets sick and makes Penny take care of him. In season 3 Penny gets injured and makes Sheldon take her to the hospital and take care of her afterward. What connects these two instances most solidly is the song "Soft Kitty." Sheldon teaches the song to Penny to sing to him ('cause that's what his mother did when he was sick as a youngster). Then when Penny is injured she makes him sing it to her.

* In ''Film/MurderByDeath'', [[Literature/MissMarple Miss Marbles]] has a nurse -- but Miss Marbles takes care of the nurse, rather than the other way around. (So, the actual reversal happened during the backstory.)

* ''KungFu'': in "Besieged: Cannon at the Gates", Caine is lying on the ground mortally wounded after he sabotages a cannon firing at the Shaolin Temple, and his GirlOfTheWeek is leaning over his body comforting him. Then the DragonWithAnAgenda stabs her; she becomes limp, and Caine reverses positions with her as she dies. Suddenly he's fine.
