Liz spends the rest of the episode vainly struggling to prove that she's nice now.

* A memorable two-part episode of ''Series/MarriedWithChildren'' had [[JadedWashout Al Bundy]] and his wife Peggy attend one of these. Peg has her sights set on being Reunion Queen, while Al crosses paths with his old rival, who taunted him about never picking up on the fight they were supposed to have after graduation. When Peg tries to campaign for votes, everyone gives her the cold shoulder because of her AlphaBitch status in high school, while Al is called a coward for not taking up his rival's challenge to renew their fight. [[CrowningMommentofAwesome Crowning Moments of Awesome]] ensue when Peg finally lets Al go ahead with the fight, leading everyone else in the room to follow them outside and leaving Peg alone in the room. With the help of Bud and Kelly, who had snuck into the reunion to get some food, she then rigs the vote to become elected Reunion Queen, and enjoys a dance with Al when he comes back in, having pulverized his rival and proven himself the toughest fighter in their class.

* The ''Series/{{Dexter}}'' episode, "Those Kinds of Things", Dexter goes to his 20-year high school reunion with the primary goal of determining whether his high school crush was murdered by her husband (and if so, to kill him.) He also learns that he was a lot more popular and likeable that he had imagined and many of his classmates are very happy to see him. However, all the attention he got was mostly because people knew about his wife's horrible murder which put him into the spotlight, and his good looks and cool job helped the rest.

* Surprising considering its genre, but ''Series/StargateSG1'' had this moment when Lt. Colonel Cameron Mitchell showed up to his class reunion with Vala Mal Doran, a human-looking alien. The whole town ends up thinking they're sleeping together, particularly since alien Vala misunderstands appropriate human behavior and invents vast sexcapades for the two of them. Then, Mitchell's boring cover is blown when alien assassins try to capture him and Vala during the reunion using clearly non-human tech.

Krystal than asks him out on a date, and they become an item, even though Fred laments his lost quiet life many times, as Krystal is a very adventurous girl.

* A fun version of this was done in one episode of ''{{Wonderfalls}}'', where the person throwing their 6½ year reunion was doing it because, as it turned out, she really just needed something to take her mind off her marriage stresses. She ends up having an epiphany relating to this and walking out of the party she herself put together, leaving a bunch of very confused guests in her wake.

* On one episode of ''TheKingOfQueens'', Doug, Spence and Danny go to their high school reunion. Doug meets up with his old prankster friend (played by Creator/AdamSandler), who seems to be a completely different person, since he is now assistant principal at the school. Doug tries to convince him to be his old self, and he goes overboard, vandalizes the principal's car, and breaks into a convenience store. Meanwhile, Danny and Spence try to pick up women. Spence ends up picking up a lesbian and Danny picks up the former star quarterback, who is now gay.

* In ''DumbAndDumber'', Harry and Lloyd once attended a class reunion. While waiting for the others, they had a flashback of an incident that resulted in everyone chasing them. After the flashback, Harry wondered if they still remembered them. Oh, they remembered and were still as angry as at the end of the flashback.

* The whole point of ''Film/RomyAndMichelesHighSchoolReunion''. Marginally subversive in that the two outsider/slacker heroines themselves have not actually become outstanding successes. Played straight in that they are clearly happier than the AlphaBitch and JerkJock, and that the two nerds they sort of hung out with ''have'' made a lot of money; and it also uses a common trope in the genre when it turns out that one of the nerds, who had a crush on Michele in high school, [[GiveGeeksAChance gets his chance to begin dating her]].
