** In a Christmas-themed episode (specifically, the one where Charlie ends up sleeping with someone who might be his sister), Jake Harper has a sip of some eggnog made for the Christmas party. Then he spends most of his time in the background doing things such as (somehow) getting from the hallway to the porch in a somewhat loopy manner, which eventually cumulates in him vomiting in his parents car on the way back from the party while attempting to recite TwasTheNightBeforeChristmas.

* The Merry Pranksters introduced a lot of people to LSD by mixing it with various drinks (like orange juice and Kool-Aid), especially at parties called "Acid Tests". Although they would generally indicate which punch was laced with acid and which one wasn't, a number of people would either come in late or miss the hint and not know they were getting dosed. Since [[HilarityEnsues hilarity did not always ensue]], stories of these incidents contributed to the backlash that led to the drug's prohibiton, prompting hallucinogen users to [[NiceJobBreakingItHero blame the Pranksters for ruining acid for everyone]].

* ''Series/PerfectStrangers'' - Suffering from a terrible cold on the eve of a big date, with all other options exhausted, cousin Larry agrees to take "the Mypos Cure." Balki mixes up a batch of the [[GargleBlaster awful potion]] for Larry, who forces himself to gulp it down when Balki leaves the room... and returns with a tiny spoon, the intended dosage for a single person. Larry just has time to declare to Balki "I can see ''through'' you" before he [[NonSequiturThud passes out]]. He awakens several days later, his date long missed - but hey, his cold is gone!

* The first episode of ''CloneHigh'' had what amounted to the entire student body getting drunk on non-alchoholic beer. Even better is Gandhi, who got drunk (and acted the craziest) even though he knew what it was in the first place, since he helped buy it.
** And let's not even start on the episode about smoking raisins, in which a motivational speaker telling the school ''not'' to do drugs emphasizes how addicted he was by saying, "I would have smoked ''anything''! I probably would have smoked... I dunno, ''raisins'' if I thought it would get me high!" The raisins, believed by everyone to be smokable, become potent mental drugs. It most notably affects Gandhi, who goes on a spiritual quest with a humkeycorn[[note]]half hummingbird, half donkey, half unicorn[[/note]] only to wake up later, completely naked and confused.

** The TropeNamer: All the characters try a dirt-flavored Chinese treat called "Lemon Wacky Hello," which turns out to be laced with opiates (though the ingredients only list something called, "hello.").

* Commander Shepard in ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' can order drinks at the Dark Star bar on the Citadel. After two drinks, he/she's still raring to go. For the third drink, the bartender gives him/her a glass of uncut Batarian ale, which to his surprise just leaves Shepard sloshed rather than on the floor. Order another drink, and he pulls out the [[GargleBlaster ryncol]], at which point he says that Shepard will be setting off radiation alarms for a week. Shepard downs it and wakes up some time later on the floor of the men's room.
