* In ''Film/TheTrumanShow'', Truman tries to leave his 'hometown' by taking a bus to Chicago. But of course, as his hometown is located in a giant studio (a fact that is kept hidden from him), the bus is operated by a walk-on, and cannot drive anywhere. To cover up this fault, the driver panics and grinds the gear instead of starting it, completely trashing the bus.

** For similar reasons, in Germany driving instructors will almost always insist that shifts from third up go straight into fifth if the speed is sufficient (i.e. being on the Autobahn and already over [=100km/h=]). Apparently this so common that car mechanics can identify a driver's behaviour solely based on the wear-and-tear done to the gears.

* Happened in ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' during a flashback scene when Hank, Dale, and Bill are joyriding Boomhauer's car. Dale displays his inability in driving stick when it's his turn to drive and caused the car to fall into the quarry. This is why the three help the environmentalists to protect the quarry from being drained, revealing Boomhauer's car and their lettermen jackets.
** "The left brake isn't working!" shouts Dale, as he repeatedly stomps the clutch.

** When Jeff Goldblum was the star in a reasonably priced car he kept complaining during portions of his lap that he wished he'd had ''more car'', these being the parts most guests take in fourth gear while Jeff (on advice from the Stig) never went above third.
