* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheBrakShow'' had Brak pet-sitting Thundercleese's goldfish. Before he left, Thundercleese sang a song warning Brak that "Three hams will kill him!"; later on, when Brak tries to remember the fish's feeding instructions, he hears the song as "Three hams will fill him! Three hams will thrill him! Why don't you feed him...three hams!"

Added DiffLines:

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', Homer tries to remember the events of a late party night at home where he got seriously drunk and embarrassed Marge to their guests. At the end of that flashback, he does remember his stupid behavior.
** In another episode, not drunk this time, Homer remembers a town meeting he assisted. Everyone is shown greatly exaggerated as exotic creatures while in the flashback itself Homer is depicted a muscular man listening to the conversation.

* Webcomic/SkinHorse - "Keep your cell phone on at all times, and that's an order!" somehow becomes "Turn on your cell phone, la la, I'm a fuzzy puppy and want scritches."

* Mentioned by DaveBarry in a column about his dog Zippy. Spend an hour repeatedly telling him NOT to pee on the rug, that doing so will make him a BAD DOG, etc. Then when they leave, all Zippy remembers is that his masters told him to do something involving the rug. When they return, the dog is proudly sitting beside the wet spot on the rug, eager to show off that he remembered what to do.
* TruthInTelevision. One should try to frame instructions in "DO do X" terms instead of "DON'T do Y" because people have a tendency not to hear (or remember) the negative and only remember the active thing to (not) do, so they end up doing it.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Chowder}}''. - Chowder gets some sort of fruit punch from Gazpacho, who warns him ''NOT'' to shake it up. Later on, he's trying to remember what Gazpacho said, and it's along the lines of, "Remember to shake it nonstop! Make sure it's completely shaken up!"

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'':
** In "$pringfield", Homer claims to have a photographic memory, and flashes back to a previous town hall meeting. [[http://i.imgur.com/EFLXv1t.jpg This is the result.]]
** In "Children of a Lesser Clod", Homer decides to use morphine to help him remember his basketball accident. Now, instead of crashing into the backboard, he recalls jumping so high he flew into outer space, slam dunked Jupiter, and got hit by [[TheJetsons George Jetson's]] spaceship.
