* ''Series/MacGyver'': One of the more unintentionally funny moments was in the brainwashing episode. Jack Dalton was having nightmares surrounding his brainwashing on a nightly basis, usually waking up in a cold sweat. One of those times he woke up, he was just having a normal morning with [=MacGyver=]. He was waving his hand around to make a point when he then noticed he was holding a gun. "Hey, where did that come from?" He then notices the symbol on [=MacGyver's=] pitcher is the same as his trigger, shoots it (with the show suggesting that [=MacGyver=] also got shot even though he was holding it away from his body), and then wakes up.

* ''Film/AliceInWonderland1985'' uses this device to combine ''Literature/AlicesAdventuresInWonderland'' with ''Through the Looking-Glass''. Alice wakes up on the riverbank at the end of the ''Wonderland'' portion and runs back into her house, only to find that she's in Looking-Glass House instead, with the real world and her family on the other side of the mirror. After her ''Looking-Glass'' adventures, she wakes up again, this time in the real world.

* The 2011 ballet adaptation of ''Theatre/AlicesAdventuresInWonderland'' opens with a scene in 1860s Oxford depicting Alice Liddell with her family and Lewis Carroll, then follows her into Wonderland for the familiar story... but in the end, instead of waking up where she started, Alice wakes up on a bench in ''21st century'' Oxford wearing modern clothes. Evidently she's a modern ''[[Literature/AlicesAdventuresInWonderland Alice]]''-lover who fell asleep and dreamed she was Alice Liddell dreaming she was the fictional Alice.

[[AllJustADream Oh, and then it turns that all the events of the episode were just some really weird dream that Lincoln was having.]]

-->'''Hank Hill:''' Damn it! I always wake up before I find out if they can understand the baby.* Happened to Mrs. Puff in the ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'' episode "Doing Time". Most of the episode had her in prison after [=SpongeBob=] drove a car off an "unfinished bridge" and down into a juice truck. Near the end of the episode she woke up and was back in the car, falling and crashing again. This time [=SpongeBob=] was arrested. She looked down to see she was in a prison outfit and woke up again, with one of the prisoners in the car instead. She woke up once again, giving up, "Oh, forget it."
