-->'''Arthur''': (''spinning hypnotic eyes, droning voice, as he dusts one of her troll dolls'') I enjoy doing your chores. I enjoy doing your chores.
-->'''D.W.''': (''relaxing'') Of course you do.

* An episode of ''Series/KateAndAllie'' had a character visiting a hypnotist to handle stage fright, as she was to appear on television later. The hypnotist is interrupted by a phone call from the hypnotist's daughter. The hypnotist takes the call in the other room, but his client can still hear him. His daughter[[spoiler: is disappointed because she tried out for the cheerleading squad and got picked as the mascot: a chicken. The hypnotist's advice to his daughter, overheard by his client, is to "cluck like a chicken for all you're worth!"]] On stage later, she did exactly that.

* In ''OnePiece'', Jango the hypnotist often hypnotised ''himself,'' as well as his target(s); he eventually gets better at leaving himself out of it. Later in the same StoryArc, Jango hypnotizes the rest of his crew to be incredibly strong; unfortunately, he also hypnotizes Luffy... [[spoiler:who goes on a rampage and beats the living shit out of ninety percent of Jango's pirate crew]]. If you look, you'll see that Jango doesn't actually figure out how to not hypnotize himself, but rather learns to pull his hat down at the last moment so he's no longer watching the swinging disc. Occasionally, he forgets to do this.

* About 10 to 15% of people are extremely suggestible. They are known as somnambulists, and can really be put under that easily and quickly. Stage Hypnotists are really good at picking them out. And while they can be made a fool of on stage easily, the whole sleeper agent thing doesn't work, and people cannot be made to do things truly against their will. And while people can be stuck to the floor, if they ever actually end up in danger because of it they will snap out. The stage tricks work because they are actually harmless.

* The episode "My Husband Is Not a Drunk" from ''TheDickVanDykeShow'', where van Dyke's character acts as though he was drunk every time a telephone rings. Established earlier as an easy hypnosis mark, he was hypnotised from another room as he overheard the hypnotist try to hypnotize Buddy, who genuinely couldn't be hypnotized.
