* The 2011 Thanksgiving special involved Kevin Swanson returning home and admitting he went [=AWOL=] from the army. Peter refers to him as a "regular Benedict Arnold Drummond". Cut to the producers hopelessly confused and looking for a tape of [[Series/DiffrentStrokes Gary Coleman]] in a Napoleon hat. After giving up, they just put in one of the [[TheWizardOfOz Cowardly Lion]] as LindsayLohan's OB/GYN.

* SethMacFarlane's use of this trope is spoofed in the ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' episode "Help Me" where he seems to be a RealityWarper that can make ''anything'' happen just by describing it and then having a cutaway of it happening.

* In "Phil & Robert" there's one that goes on for over ''two minutes'', featuring a wolf being tricked into saying, "Cock A Doodle" at the Moon, who then becomes a prostitute, which is a movie featuring Quagmire as the wolf. When it finally ends, Peter says the cutaway was so long, he forgot what he was talking about.
