* ''Series/NewTricks'': We don't know exactly Gerry what was hypnotized into doing any time he heard the music of Gerry Rafferty, but it is apparently something pretty shocking to judge from the reactions of the rest of the team.

* The movie ''Film/OfficeSpace'' uses this trope cleverly: Peter is put into a relaxation trance, and then the hypnotist dies of a heart attack before he can bring Peter out of it. As a result, Peter remains free of stress even as his boss is frantically calling him to come in to work and stops caring about his job, which ironically leads to a promotion.

Peter never receives the command to exit the trance, but it fades on its own over time.

** D.W. is misled by the Tibbles into thinking a swear word will make adults "zombies for a day" who are forced to do what she says in "Bleep". [[spoiler:She later finds this not to be true when she says it to her mom.]]

* An episode of ''Series/TheMentalist'' deals with hypnosis. Rigsby ends up assaulting a suspect during interrogation and then not remembering the act. Jane determines that he's been hypnotized. When it's pointed out that people can't be made to do things that go against their nature, Jane agrees that this applies to normal people. However, Rigsby is hardly a pacifist, so he can be hypnotized to do violent things.

She agrees, but he tells her he's ''not'' going to hypnotize her. She's too nervous, so he's most definitely ''not'' hypnotizing her... three... two... one... ''sleep''.
