* 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.
