* In a ''{{Zits}}'' strip, [[NotAMorningPerson Jeremy]] comes down for breakfast with a stack of cards, and answers each of his mother's questions ("Orange juice? Eggs?") with the next card. Finally she insists, "I am not that predictable!" and he reveals the card which reads, "Wanna bet?"

* In ''TheGoldenGirls'', Stan walks out the front door. Someone is about to say something when Dorothy cuts them short and counts down. "Three...two...one..." Stan walks back in and Dorothy shouts, "Out, Stan!" This is used to contrast a later moment in the episode when she attempts the same prediction and fails, indicating that Stan has changed.
* ''{{QI}}'''s gimmick is that it's a quiz that penalizes boring/obvious answers rather than wrong ones. When this happens, a klaxon goes off and the answer appears on the huge screens in the studio to prove that it was expected. Generally speaking, this means CommonKnowledge answers, but [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything sometimes the show predicts the panellists' jokes]] (''specific'' panellists, in a few cases). The very first episode had a example of this, when the revelation that Caravaggio had cut a guy's testicles off over a game of tennis led to Danny Baker saying, "New balls, please!"

** In another episode, Talia is standing outside an elevator and tells Sinclair that she's afraid to get into one, because every time she does, Mr. Garibaldi seems to be there. (This was, in fact, a subtle RunningGag throughout season 1.) Sinclair informs her that Mr. Garibaldi is good, but [[TemptingFate he's not omniscient]]. Cue the elevator doors opening, and... well, you fill in the rest.
---> '''Talia:''' I think I'll take the stairs.\\
'''Sinclair:''' I think I'll join you.
