* Parodied in ''Theatre/TheCompleteHistoryOfAmericaAbridged'', where the narration of UsefulNotes/TheAmericanCivilWar has a beep between each of the slides (which get lost due to a stage mishap, forcing the actors to compensate). After the narration winds up with UsefulNotes/AbrahamLincoln getting shot by John Wilkes Booth and dying the morning after, there is a really long beep.

(Seconds later, the same effect is repurposed as a SoundEffectBleep as the announcers start arguing with each other.)

* In Rarity (a.k.a. Jeff Burgess)'s song ''Goodbye'', the beeping comes in on the very last note, forming a harmony with the two vocalists. The vocals end just before it flatlines, leaving the long beep as the only thing you hear for the last ten seconds of the track. It's [[AmbiguousEnding not entirely clear]] which vocalist's character has died.

* Subverted in an episode of ''OneFootInTheGrave''. Margaret is hooked up to life support as Victor stays with her, holding her hand. The heart monitor does the standard "beep.. beep.. beep.. beep.. beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep", and prompts a ReallyDeadMontage from Victor, and then a nurse wanders by, complains that the heart monitor had been faulty all week, [[PercussiveMaintenance bashes it]], and apologises, as it starts beeping regularly again.

*** Done in a very odd way during the credits of the last ''Series/StElsewhere'' episode. The MTM cat was shown lying still, flanked by a beeping heart monitor and IV bag. As the theme music ended, the monitor went to flatline instead of the kitty's traditional "Meow!" Yes, the autistic kid killed a kitty...
