The Gilligan Cut is a staple of classic comedy. Simply put, if the character says "I'm not doing this", no matter how many times they say it, chances are the character ''will'' do this for the sake of comedic effect, sometimes even while stating "I can't ''believe'' I'm doing this". It has two variants, but the staple between them is the sudden shift in scene. No cut, no Gilligan's Cut.

* On ''Series{{MASH}}'', in the episode "The Trial Of Henry Blake". When Frank tells Hawkeye and Trapper that they're under arrest (to keep them from trying to save Col. Blake from a court-martial), they laugh hysterically - until we cut to the next scene, where they are not only under arrest, but have been relieved of their uniforms as well (presumably to make it harder should they try to escape).

* ''Series/Matlock'': Matlock, about to go on a fishing trip, gets a letter calling him in for jury duty. Matlock remarks, that as a prominent defense attorney, there's a snowball's chance in hell he'd be selected. Cut to Matlock sitting in the jury box. An example of ArtisticLicenseLaw, as in most of the United States and all Canadian provinces lawyer's are ineligible for jury duty.

-->'''Narrator:''' I snorted and shook my head. "Sylvia, I am an adult, okay? I am an adult woman with a job, and that job says that I have to go to the distribution center, not drive a teenager hundreds of miles to a town I've never heard of, for reasons that that kid won't even tell me. I am a responsible goddamn adult!"
