* In the film ''Film/{{Interstellar}}'', TARS is rather crass with his gallows humor, often plugging at inappropriate times, given that his humor setting was originally set at 100% before it was modified by Cooper.
-->'''TARS:''' Everybody good? Plenty of slaves for my robot colony?
-->'''Cooper:''' A giant, sarcastic robot. Wonderful.
-->'''TARS:''' I have a cue light I can use to show you when I'm joking, if you like.
-->'''Cooper:''' That might help.
-->'''TARS:''' Yeah, you can use it to find your way back to the ship after I blow you out the airlock. [Cue light blinks]

* ''ComicBook/RedEars'': A man is told by his doctor that he has less than a day to live, so he goes home and has a last night of drunken sex with his wife until they're both so exhausted that they collapse from the effort. When he wakes up and wants to continue, she tells him to stop complaining because at least he doesn't have to get up in the morning.

** This pun works in both languages: the original German version goes "Berlin ist die Stadt der Warenhäuser. Hier war'n Haus, da war'n Haus" - literally "Berlin is the city of warehouses, there was a house and there was a house". The literal translation obviously doesn't work, but the "where's my house" line comes pretty close to the original.

* In the third ''Series/HoratioHornblower'' telefilm, Horatio accidentally sails his tiny dispatch ship into an enemy fleet thanks to the fog--several Spanish frigates of which any one could reduce his vessel into splinters, if they make a fight of it. Horatio tries to play it off lightly.
--> '''Horatio:''' Still, I imagine it would be a damn close-run thing.\\
'''Styles:''' [utterly expressionless] Damn close, sir. It'd take at least a minute to sink us.
