* ''Series/{{Mythbusters}}''
** One episode had Adam give his two cents on what would be the respective odds of each outcome before a test--specifically, 70% chance of the test failing and not allowing a retest due to damage, 20% chance of the test failing yet allowing a retest, and 10% chance of the test succeeding. Later on, when option B happens, he tries to claim he gave it a 30% chance of happening, then a 40%. Both claims were countered by a flashback to his original claim, leading him to quip "IRejectYourReality, and substitute my own!"
** Another episode showed Adam and Jamie trying to be the first to find a needle in a haystack. At the beginning, Adam predicts that in a few hours, Jamie will still be searching while he'll "be kicking back, sipping mimosas in the shade." When he's unsuccessful a few hours in, [[GenreSavvy he predicts this will happen]] right before it does.

* A couple of these happen in ''Series/EverybodyLovesRaymond''. There was one that had Maria not wanting to meddle in Robert's life and Debra thinking it's not meddling as long as it's out of love. Another has Robert saying he found the love of his life Joanne who he later divorce. But the biggest would be a flashback of a pregnant Debra wanting to move to the house thats next door to Maria and Frank, thinking it be perfect since they could see them all the time.
