* In ''Film/ANightAtTheOpera'', Otis B. Driftwood (GrouchoMarx) has been fired from his post with an opera company. Upon leaving, he is denied access to the building elevator and protests that it's four flights down. The elevator operator "helps" him by kicking him in the butt, and he tumbles down the steps, out a door and into the street.

A sort of scene transition that usually involves a door. Usually done for laughs in animation, where the victim is lifted by the collar (and sometimes the back of his pants), taken outside and then dropped, thrown or kicked into the curb (for extra comedy, the victim can also skid along the ground or [[TrashLanding land in the garbage]]). Older works sometimes called this "getting the bum's rush". Can also be done for drama in live-action shows, where the victim is dragged outside by two or more people and thrown into the mud or the pouring rain, or just simply beaten up afterward. See DestinationDefenestration for when a window is involved.

* A running gag on ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' involved the antagonist of the episode picking up the Warner siblings by the scruffs of their necks and get ready to throw them out. The scene would then cut some distance away, and the person getting ready to throw them would instead come hurling toward the screen.

screen. Although on one occasion, the Warners LITERALLY got the boot when they became antagonistic during the International Friendship Song (as in, he kicked them like a football outside of the village).
