* During the Watertown shootout in ''Film/PatriotsDay'', one of the neighborhood residents comes out of his house to give one of the police officers a ''sledgehammer'' to use against the bombers. The officer thinks the guy is a dumbass, but once one of the bombers runs out of ammo and resorts to choking another cop, the officer takes the sledgehammer and uses it to knock him off of his comrade and subdue the bastard.

* In the animated special, ''Tales From ComicStrip/TheFarSide I'', there is a 15-second "Meanwhile... back in Egypt" segment that consists of a desert marketplace full of locals who eventually stop and wave at the viewer before going about their business. Unlike the rest of the special, there's no weirdness whatsoever. But in the sequel, there's a segment with amoebas at a party that's abruptly interrupted when their "world" goes sideways. The camera cuts to a man putting down a mostly-empty water glass... then pulls back to him and his family exiting the same exact Egypt scene (sans waving) from the first special. You didn't think a bunch of Egyptians wishing the viewer [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinese_New_Year "Gung Hay Fat Choy!"]] was odd?

* In ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' when Tarvek [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20090921 relates all the trouble Gil got him into while they were in Paris]], there is a very short gag (just one panel, the fifth) in which he complains about having to deal with pirates because of what Gil did. The pirate in that panel looks a lot like Bangladesh [=DuPree=]. It takes [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20120222 two years and five months]] to start to guess what exactly Tarvek went through then.
-->'''Bang:''' (''with glee'') It's Prince "How Dare You"!!
** Which then becomes part of another Chekhov's Gag! When gleefully meeting Tarvek, she curiously asks, if he still has "those little scars" as an offhand comment. Chapters later when Tarvek is taking a bath after [[spoiler:having been stuck in the time bubble for 2 and a half years]], those little scars she "worked so hard on" are the first things she wants to see.
