** On the other hand, ''Firefly'' is set in the future of the real world, so we can assume science fiction about spaceships exists... it's just [[TechnologyMarchesOn out of date]].

* In the ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' episode "Objects in Space", the character Wash expresses his disbelief that someone could be psychic: "That sounds like something out of ScienceFiction." When his wife, Zoë, responds with, "[[ArbitrarySkepticism We live in a spaceship]], dear," he says, "So?"
** FridgeLogic: please note that, from Wash's perspective, the conversation looked a lot like this:
---> '''Wash:''' "You're saying she's psychic? That sounds like something from ScienceFiction."
---> '''Zoe:''' "We're truckers, dear."
---> '''Wash:''' "So?"

** A better analogy than the truckers analogy would be if Zoe had said, [[Webcomic/{{xkcd}} "We live in a world where there are actual fleets of robot assassins patrolling the skies."]]
** Or someone saying "we're having this conversation from different countries over a globally linked information network".



* Shonda Rhimes definitely knows what she's doing with this line from the ''Series/GreysAnatomy'' season 8 finale:
-->'''Cristina''': I don't know how this keeps happening! We keep dying we're [[spoiler: in a plane crash, Mer,]] like right now!

* In ''{{Series/Workaholics}}'' "The Fabolous Murphy Sisters" Karl is apparently a videographer going to direct Adam in his demo tape for the guys' new sport-Karl is played by one of the show's co-creators who also frequently directs the episodes making Karl's use of film jargon "Talent on set" and surprisingly helpful direction less so.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Film/SpaceJam'', when Creator/BillMurray shows up for the climax as a borderline DeusExMachina, Daffy asks him how he got there and Murray replies, "The producer's a friend of mine." Either Daffy is questioning how Murray got into the WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes world, and the answer is that Murray knows the producer of Looney Tunes, or they're raising the very valid question of what Bill Murray is doing in a Looney Tunes/NBA crossover movie in the first place, in which case the producer in question would be the film's producer, Creator/IvanReitman, who was indeed a friend of Murray's. Judging from the disgusted reactions from Daffy (and [[EvenEvilHasStandards the leader of the Monstars]]), they took the latter interpretation.

* ''VisualNovel/NineHoursNinePersonsNineDoors'' has the entire game world shown on both screens of the DS, with gameplay and novel pages being shown in the bottom screen while Junpei's view of the other characters in the game world being shown on top. It's even specifically drawn attention to [[spoiler: in order to describe how Akane's psychic powers work. To her, she is seeing both her own viewpoint (the bottom screen, representing her present) and Junpei's (the top screen, representing her future) and is using information from the future to solve the puzzles and gathering information to save her own life as well as Junpei's.]]
--> '''[[spoiler: Akane (In Narration)]]:''' Perhaps you can think of it as 2 movies showing on the same screen, at the same time. Eventually, it becomes difficult to separate them, and determine which movie is which. However, if I concentrated, I was able to focus on one or the other. That was why [[spoiler: I was able to grasp [[SchrodingersCat what]] [[ButterflyOfDoom was]] [[PsychicPowers happening]] in front of me.]]''

--->'''JD:''':Come on, I know it's tempting to just mail it in, but there's still a lot of people who rely on us week to week. I think we owe it to them to be as inspired as we were our first few years. Now, I know we never do great come medical awards season, except for [[Series/{{Monk}} Dr. Shalhoub]], he wins everything, but I still think we're as good as anybody else out there.\\

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'':
** In "Know Your Fusion", Pearl tells Garnet to ask what Steven and Amethyst are up to, and Garnet says "I can't." Why can't she? Because of a rule the writers have for themselves: [[http://www.toonzone.net/sdcc2015-steven-universe-roundtable-interview/ Garnet never asks questions.]]
** Later, Sardonyx turns her room into a talk show, including a studio audience she addresses as if they were the real life audience of ''Steven Universe''. This includes acknowledging that Sugilite isn't really in "this episode", but asks if they still need to pay "her" (which could technically refer to Sugilite herself, but is more a reference to [[Music/NickiMinaj Sugilite's voice actress]]).

* ''WesternAnimation/TransformersRescueBots'' shares the same universe with ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'', and thus Bumblebee is the IntelligibleUnintelligible in both series. Until the season 4 episode "Uninvited Guest", in which Bumblebee now speaks with his ''WesternAnimation/TransformersRobotsInDisguise'' voice. Blades finds it hard accepting the change, just like some of the viewers might.
