* This was used in the ''{{Firefly}}'' episode "Out of Gas" during a dinner/birthday celebration. The writer of this episode, Tim Minear, has talked about how he threw out as many words as he could 'wife', 'whoring', 'shepherd', 'doctor', 'married', 'companion', 'preacher', 'warrant' (that's all I can think of) to introduce the characters, their relationships to one another and what their place is as part of the crew of Serenity.
* The StargateSG1 episode "2010" starts with Carter meeting with her husband and then going to a commemoration service to honor Earth's alliance with an alien race. These two scenes serve to fill the audience in on what has "happened" since the audience will be completely baffled by the sudden jump 10 years into the future.

* One of the longest-running arcs[[hottip:*:second only to "Sister"]] (in every sense of the phrase) in ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' was "Grace's Birthday Party", in which all but one of the major characters had their [[GenderBender gender reversed]], and considerable exposition and character development occurred. Ironically, [[WebcomicTime in actual time elapsed in-world, it's the shortest arc]].
