* Five minutes into the pilot episode of ''Series/GreysAnatomy'', we have this trope stated as a rule, though we only ever see this rule enforced once (in the same episode). -->'''Bailey''': Sleep when you can where you can, which brings me to rule number three: If I'm sleeping, don't wake me unless your patient is actually dying. Rule number four: The dying patient better not be dead when I get there. Not only will you have killed someone, you woke me for no good reason.

* Towards the end of ''Film/SesameStreetPresentsFollowThatBird'', the Sesame Street gang finds Big Bird imprisoned in a cage by [[ThoseTwoBadGuys Sam and Sid Sleaze]], a pair of wicked carnival owners. Sam and Sid are asleep, so Big Bird's friends have to get the keys from Sam and unlock and open Big Bird's cage without waking them up (and to a lesser extent, Cookie Monster is trying to steal a box of [[TrademarkFavoriteFood cookies]] from Sid). Since Big Bird can't keep quiet about what key Maria should use to unlock his cage, Sam and Sid wake up. They drive their truck away just as Maria finds the right key and unlocks Big Bird's cage, leading to a car chase scene.

Norb and Dag run for their lives...only to find even more sleeping (but not for long) wolverines waiting for them outside. They scream in terror.]]
