* In ''Film/HoneyIShrunkTheKids'', Wayne Sylinzki, the creator of the ShrinkRay, is fed up with the failure of his device not working and goes into a rage and smashes it up, not realizing that it worked and shrunk his and the neighbors' kids. Upon finding out it worked, part of the plot revolved around him finding the kids ''and'' putting the machine back together to return them to normal size. This also happens at least once while the kids are tiny where he and his wife are searching for the kids, and the kids are close by, screaming their heads off...but they stop looking just a few inches away.

*** Long story short: Due to the finding man made obstacles, they know something is buried down there but no one has been able to get to it (or, now days, even figure out where the original pit was). [[VideoGame/KingdomofLoathing Short story long: Anything by Dickens.]]

** An ambiguous case in an episode of the 2002 remake: a group of college students travel through a forest and discover a cave of an ancient tribe. They disturb a large chalice containing blood and the sun unexpectedly goes dark, much to the confusion of scientists on the radio. Realizing that the blood was an offering to a sun god by an ancient culture, the group believes that in order to bring back the sun, they must replace the offering so they kill one of their group for her blood. Immediately afterwards, the sun returns, but then they hear over the radio that scientists believe that the event was caused by a natural occurrence, leaving them to wonder if they killed their friend for no reason.

* Season 2 of ''Series/{{Jeremiah}}''; Mr. Smith convinces Jeremiah, Kurdy and Markus that God is going to finally, overtly, come to Earth and grant one wish to each person in a selected place. Each character discusses what their wish would be; Mr. Smith says only to have his broken arm, which the doctor's said had little chance of healing, repaired ("That's it?" * shrug* -"I travel light"). Long story short, they all wander off except Mr. Smith-then the next morning, they are throwing a baseball around, and Mr. Smith catches it-with his theretofore broken arm (saying sadly, "You guys shoulda stayed...").

* Poor Daffy is a victim of this in a ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' cartoon. He's lost in the desert, dying of thirst, and hallucinating. He finds a ''huge'' chunk of gold, but it's pretty worthless right now, as he can't spend it. Then a mouse shows up, tempting him with water in exchange for the gold. At first, Daffy refuses, unwilling to give up the fortune, but eventually, he gives in and gives up the gold in exchange for the water. Then, when he's about to drink it, it starts raining so hard he's flooded up to his chest. (ComicallyMissingThePoint, he says, "Boy, when I buy water, I get my money's worth!" before the cartoon ends.)
