* Jodie, from the 1970s sitcom/soap opera parody ''{{Soap}}'', takes a bunch of pills, falls asleep and wakes up as the most emotionally healthy character in the series. Go figure.
* Ex-Secret Service agent Paul Kellerman in ''PrisonBreak'' realizes that his life is meaningless and that the woman he has done so much for despises him. He puts on his parade uniform with all his awards and medals, properly cleans his service pistol, sits down on a chair, and prepares to pull the trigger. The scene cuts between this and his sister receiving a disturbing call and rushing to his place. She gets there and finds him slumped on the chair, the gun on the floor. He then stirs and looks at her, telling her in amazement that this is the first time in his entire career his gun has misfired. He then finds out that Sara Tancredi is on trial and, with renewed purpose, goes to testify, knowingly incriminating himself in the process. Later, his prison van is intercepted by masked people with guns. He faces them with dignity and prepares to die. [[spoiler:He gets better]].
