* In ''ThaliasMusings'', [[{{CloudcuckoolandersMinder}} Apollo]] attempts to invoke this trope after Thalia has a narrow brush with [[{{GodSaveUsFromTheQueen}} Hera's]] wrath. Thalia can't take it seriously and doubts he does, either.

* Pick an episode, any episode of ''FullHouse''.
* ''LeaveItToBeaver'' tended to end like this.

* ''Series.TheFactsOfLife'' owned this trope, playing it so straight they frequently didn't even bother with the lighten-up gag. Or if they did, it came through brave tears.
* Lampshaded in ''Series/ArrestedDevelopment'': Michael and George Michael, his son, are making snacks and discussing their plot of that episode. George Michael remarks that he doesn't need his dad to stay out of his life, he's the biggest part of his life. Michael states, refering to the snack they are making, "That's a little cornball, son."
* Vengeful aversion: [[{{Seinfeld}} No hugging, no learning.]]
* ''FamilyMatters'' had this quite frequently, complete with FullHouseMusic.
* ''HappyDays'' has an episode in season one where, after going through gang initiation which involved pulling pranks on a policeman, stealing their principal's toupe, and going to a sockhop in dresses, Potsie and Richie realize that Mr. Cunningham was right--they didn't even like the guys they were trying to impress and should have just been themselves all along. Mr. C then comes in and has a little chat with Richie which ends on a corny joke.

* Averted in the very first episode of ''TheCosbyShow'', when Cliff is trying to get to the bottom of Theo's terrible grades and Theo makes a heartfelt plea for understanding, pointing out that while Cliff and Claire are, respectively, a doctor and a lawyer, Theo doesn't love them more or less because of that, and maybe his parents should accept the fact that Theo is just 'a regular person' and love him anyway. As the studio audience begins to 'awww...' Cliff reacts silently for a second, then yells, "That's the dumbest thing I ever heard!" and proceeds to tear Theo a new one for not even trying.

* In the first season of GarfieldAndFriends, several of the Orson's Farm segments had one of these, usually in song and dance form. The show got rid of them later.

* Occurs with [[OnceAnEpisode disturbing frequency]] on ''{{Scrubs}}''. Generally occurs in the form of a voice over of JD's [[InnerMonologue thoughts]] pertaining to the week's episode. Often comes with some [[FullHouseMusic cheesy music]] too.

* Parodied in nearly every episode of ''MoralOrel'', in which Orel learns a [[SpoofAesop twisted Aesop]] after a beating from his alcoholic father.
* Happens frequently in ''TheSimpsons''. One episode [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] it by having guest star [[TheJeffersons Isabel Sanford]], acting as a presenter for a television museum, break the FourthWall and describe this trope. She goes on to say that they normally put in an extra, jokey scene to dilute the syrupiness. The scene then cuts to a clip of ''TheBeverlyHillbillies''.

* Seth [=MacFarlane=] in DVD commenteries has termed this the 'moment of shit', and as such has subverted it quite a few times in ''FamilyGuy'', usually having the father Peter fail to get the lesson at all and say something inappropriate.
