* A darker example in ''Film/{{Conspiracy}}'', a drama about [[UsefulNotes/TheHolocaust the Wannsee Conference]], during which the Security Police managed to get authorization for an anti-Jewish genocide (later termed "Operation Reinhard") which outshone the ones accomplished to that date by the Wehrmacht, ''Einsatzgruppen'', and Regional Security Chiefs. The term 'evacuation' is frequently used to describe the Security Police's program. After about an hour of this Lange, who works with the security forces in ''Reichskomissariat Ostland'' (and has been engaged in the usual 'preventative security' operations to eliminate demographics who might support the Communist Insurgency there), tires of his indirectness.
--> '''Lange''': I have the real feeling I evacuated 30,000 Jews already by shooting them. Is what I did ''evacuation''?

to:

* This forms a RunningGag in ''Film/HotFuzz'', where the gruff PC Walker will often finish off PC Thatcher's {{Double Entendre}}s by pointing out exactly what she was hinting at.
-->'''PC Doris Thatcher:''' Oh, I dunno. I quite like a little midnight gobble. Haha!\\
'''PC Bob Walker:''' ...cocks.
** Made even funnier by the fact that Walker's accent is [[TheUnintelligible slightly impenetrable.]]





to:

* ''Series/{{Friends}}''
** It was a running gag that when Joey said something raunchy, he'd follow up with an explanation in case the others didn't catch his meaning, which they always did. Once he said, "If you know what I mean," to which Monica replied, "Joey? We ''always'' know what you mean."
** In an earlier episode the Friends were comparing sex to a concert, comparing foreplay to a comedian, and penetration as the band. The women say that they should bring back the comedian for a second go a bit more often otherwise they [[ADateWithRosiePalms might just end up listening to the album of the band instead]]. Joey responds with: "...We're still talking about sex, right?"
* ''Series/{{Frasier}}'' gives us this exchange:
-->'''Niles:''' How long have you known her?\\
'''Frasier:''' Three days.\\
'''Niles:''' Have you two, er… (cocks eyebrow)\\
'''Frasier:''' No, not that it's any of your business.\\
'''Niles:''' But you're, er… (raises eyebrows)\\
'''Frasier:''' Soon.\\
'''Niles:''' We are talking about--\\
'''Frasier:''' Oh of course we ''are''!\\
'''Niles:''' …sex, right?
* In an episode of ''Series/NewsRadio'', Bill hastily informs Dave of Lisa's potential sexual endeavors using a euphemism. Dave, who was no longer dating Lisa, doesn't have a strong reaction to the news, which causes Bill and Mr. James to assume he didn't catch the euphemism:
--> '''Bill:''' You know what that means, don't you?\\
'''Dave:''' Yes.\\
'''Mr. James:''' That means sex.\\
'''Dave:''' ''I know.''
* On ''Series/NightCourt'', when Dan catches Bull in a hotel room with [[AmbiguousSyntax his little sister]]:
-->'''Dan Fielding:''' "You guys didn't sleep together did you?"
-->'''Bull Shannon:''' "Of course not!"
-->'''Dan:''' *sighs in relief*
-->'''Bull:''' "We just had sex!"
* ''Series/FistOfFun's'' "Four Horsemen waiting for the apocalypse" sketch has Pestilence working as a milkman. One of his customers tells the camera "Although he's a bit odd looking, I know lots of housewives around here would love to get their hands on his extra pinta, if you know what I mean. [{{Beat}}] I mean his cock."




to:

* ''Webcomic/StuffSucks'' had this. "I think she wants to be his buddy. (short pause) His ''sex'' buddy. (short pause) If you know what I mean."
* ''Webcomic/CyanideAndHappiness'' has this gem:
--> Boy, I'd love to take her out to dinner. And by "take her out to dinner" I mean dunk the donut. And by "dunk the donut" I mean have sex with her. And by "have sex with her" I mean use my penis on her. And by "penis" I mean staple remover. And by "staple" I mean virginity.

to:

* ''WebVideo/DoctorHorriblesSingAlongBlog''
--> "The Hammer is my penis."
* ''WebVideo/UltraFastPony:''
** In "The Penny and Clyde Show".
-->'''Twilight:''' Dammit! Why does everything have to be so hard?\\
'''Discord:''' Oh, Twilight, if life was hard it would be full of innuendos. ''[beat]'' Like my ostrich pe--\\
'''Twilight:''' [[TooMuchInformation So much more information than what I wanted!]]
** In "Pirate Shipping":
-->'''Sweetie Belle:''' ''[to Cheerilee]'' So, you got anyone you're going to spend some quality time with tonight, huh, wink wink nudge nudge, you know what I'm saying, right, I'm implying you're gonna have ''sex''.
* From WebVideo/BroTeamPill's playthrough of ''VideoGame/GunsOfIcarus'':
--> "We're gonna need a specialist: Me. Specialized in one-handed cranking, and also beatin' off my stupid dick."




to:

* ''WesternAnimation/CloneHigh'''s JFK provides us with many such examples, in addition to the page quote.
** "Some of us are trying to nail Catharine the Great. Or should I say 'Catharine the SO-SO!'"
** "Don't worry, Cleo. I can help you stay ''up'' all night ''long''. Notice how I accentuated the words "up" and "long". Now let's ''bone'' up for the PXJT test. Guess what the P stands for? PENIS!"
** But then, JFK always feels the need to explain the joke flat out, even when completely obvious. His ego simply requires him to brag about his sexual exploits.
''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'':
** Or for that matter....
--->'''Quagmire''' [matter of fact, after a string of InnocentInnuendo comments from Lois]: That one is also sexual.
** Spoofed in one episode, where Peter is helping Death get a date. Peter remarks "You might even, you know..." and then proceeds to perform a series of seemingly random, nonsensical motions including breakdance moves. After he finishes, Death says "I don't follow" and Peter (still bent over from one of the dance moves), responds "Intercourse."
** ''Series/OneDayAtATime'': Oh, I'll fix your sink, Ms. Romano. And by that I mean I'll have sex with you. And by have sex with you, I mean I'll fix your sink. And by "sink," I mean your reproductive organ. And by "reproductive organ, " I mean the thing between your knees. And by "the thing between your knees, " I…well, I guess that one's kind of self-explanatory.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' once featured a (villainous, as far as the show ''has'' villains) character who would insert, "That's what ''she'' said" in response to anything that could even remotely be considered a DoubleEntendre.
** From another episode:
-->'''Coach''': Like I tell my gym class, girls can't play sports.
-->'''Thatherton:''' At least I've found one who can get it over the plate, if you know what I mean.
-->[blank stare from the Coach]
-->'''Thatherton:''' I'm having sex with her.
-->[They both laugh]
-->'''Coach:''' ''(beat)'' But she's no good at sports, right?
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''
** The episode "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS4E8NewKidOnTheBlock New Kid on the Block]]" subverts the subversion:
--->'''Ruth Powers''': Well, I know what you're thinking, and the answer is yes. I want to be fixed up with one of your friends as soon as you can arrange it. After all, Homer, I do have the normal... appetites.\\
'''Homer:''' Heh, heh, heh... I know what you mean. (pause) Just let me make sure we're not talking about food.\\
'''Ruth Powers''': I'm not.\\
'''Homer:''' Right! Me, neither. (pause) We're talking about sex, right?\\
'''Ruth Powers''': Right.\\
'''Homer:''' I hear you loud and clear.

* In ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', following Roy's death, Haley tries to [[BreakingBadNewsGently break the news gently]] to his girlfriend Celia. Unfortunately, Celia takes Haley's metaphors [[LiteralMinded literally]], so Belkar has to be blunt and to the point in order to explain to her.
