* In HomeImprovement, Wilson's un-shown lower face became this. Originally, he just stood behind a fence on stage. As the show progressed, Wilson was shown out of the house more and set designers went to town finding ways to keep the portion of his face hidden with props. In all these cases, he was never shown, being obscured by at least three props in the scene as he moved around the set.

* This was actually cited by Brent Gore as the reason he left the show ''California Dreams'' in its third season as his character had been reduced from the focus character of the show to a one trick pony who mostly showed up to whine 'Aww man' when things didn't go his way.

* In ''Series/{{The IT Crowd}}'' the apathetic Roy will always answer the phone with "Hello, IT, have you tried turning it off and on again?" In later seasons they progress to "is it plugged in?", and later still "I'm sick of saying that.. what do you WANT?!" It's worth noting that this advice solves, IfMyCalculationsAreCorrect, 72% of computer problems.

* ''PhineasAndFerb'' is a show where the great deal of the humour comes from the formulaic plot and its OnceAnEpisode running-gags and catch-phrases. To keep them fresh, the show will constantly tweak, rotate or make them pointedly absent in funny ways.

* Much ''FamilyGuy'' humor is based on NonSequitur asides that play off the characters' metaphors. Occasionally, an aside doesn't happen, causing the character to flinch, "Oh? We're not doing one? Right?"
* In ''PinkyAndTheBrain'', Brain would often ask, "Pinky! [[AreYouPonderingWhatImPondering Are you pondering what I'm pondering?]]" before a zany scheme, prompting Pinky to agree, before spouting a goofy non-sequitur.
