* ''OnlyFoolsAndHorses'' is ''made'' of this trope. ''Every single business deal'' Del enters into is part of his get-rich plan. He is [[CatchPhrase constantly saying]] "This time next year, we'll be millionaires!" He and Rodney actually sing the song in the hilarious episode "And the Unlucky Winner Is ...", when they thought they'd won a million pasetas. Of course, because they told [[FawltyTowersPlot all those lies]], they are unable to collect the money.

* Played with in ''HighSociety'', where two reporters, while taking in the luxurious home of the high society family they're writing a story about, sing "''Who Wants To Be A Millionaire!''" ("I Don't!"), listing in the song all the luxuries they could afford if they were rich, and for each one, claiming not to want it. By their expressions and the effort they put into the song, it's implied to be a case of [[SourGrapesTropes Sour Grapes]], however.
