* Combined with HypocriticalHumor in Chapter 22/Episode 7 of ''Manga/KomorisanWaKotowarenai''. When Ootani stares at Komori in the pool while jogging, she calls him a pervert (which the rest of the boys teasingly repeat). Their positions are reversed at the end of the chapter/episode.

A subtrope of MeaningfulEcho, the Gag Echo is a pretty common trope in fiction and while it's found in works outside the comedy genre, it's always PlayedForLaughs. The line of dialogue will often appear in the form of a BrickJoke though it can pop up pretty soon after the first line. Usually the line will be repeated by another character and part of the fun comes from them not knowing someone else has already said the same thing. It can overlap with the IronicEcho but differs from that since the Ironic Echo isn't usually played for comedy and the Gag Echo doesn't need the irony.

* In ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' "[[Recap/BuffyTheVampireSlayerS6E7OnceMoreWithFeeling Once More With Feeling]]" during the "I'll Never Tell" number Xander sings "[Anya's] toes are kind of hairy" and Anya sings "his eyes are beady". In the next scene when ranting about the situation both of them shout at the same time [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking "my eyes are not beady"/"my toes aren't hairy"]].

* The ''Series/{{Angel}}'' episode "Lonely Hearts" makes a RunningGag out of people not knowing what the logo on the Angel Investigations business card is (it's meant to be an angel). When Angel hands Kate a card at the end of the episode she says "What is this? A duck?
* The ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' episode "Jaynestown" opens with Kaylee and Simon bantering about whether or not Simon uses profanity. Unlike most of the crew he's not given to [[ForeignCussWord spouting off Mandarin curses]] frequently. Guess what Simon does upon seeing a statue of [[TokenEvilTeammate Jayne]] standing in the town square on Higgins' Moon.
