** The episode ''Adventures In Baby-Getting'' uses this as the main plot: Marge wants to have another baby, but since Homer is sterile from working at the nuclear plant, they attempt to recover some sperm he'd previously had frozen, and wackiness ensues. Marge changes her mind after learning that he'd donated sperm in the past and there are lots of Homer-like children running around. (Why they never considered adoption is a mystery.)

* In ''Series/GreysAnatomy'': Callie and Arizona try this in order to fix their marriage after [[spoiler: the plane crash where Arizona lost her leg]].

* In ''ComicStrip/FoxTrot'', Andy goes through a mid-life crisis of sorts and suggests this. Roger immediately tries to talk her out of it... only to start to recant when she suggests getting a Ferrari instead. By the end of the plot, though, Andy has given up on her mid-life crisis (but still wouldn't mind a Ferrari).

* A unique version on ''OneLifeToLive'', where in this case, the wife suggests ''adopting'' another baby in addition to the one they adopted a few years earlier. The husband refuses, stating that another child won't fix their problems. Sure enough, the marriage breaks up several weeks later.

* In ''TheGeorgeLopezShow'', Angie's period is late and she takes a pregnancy test. It comes out positive, and her and George decide that they are okay with having another kid (their oldest is away at college and their other child is in high school). However, it turns out to be a false positive.

Note that examples where they do end up having a baby are straight uses too. It also doesn't matter whether they already have one or not, despite the name of this trope.

* ''KingOfTheHill'': Hank and Peggy get the urge to have another child after dealing the whole episode with Hank attempting to impregnate Ladybird. The next episode had Peggy failing over a dozen pregnancy tests because of Hank's narrow urethra resulting in a low sperm count, which is why Bobby is their only child. They give up afterwards. For a final, bitter twist of the knife, while they fail to have a baby, Hank's father Cotton impregnates his much-younger wife, leaving Hank and Peggy to watch those two become terrible parents to a beautiful baby they don't even want.
* Played for laughs in ''TheSimpsons''. In the episode ''Blame It On Lisa'', Lisa shows her parents a video of a Brazilian orphan she sponsors. Marge finds him so cute that she says she wants another kid. Homer refuses because he hasn't lost all the weight [[FridgeLogic he gained with Maggie's birth]].
** In the episode ''What Animated Women Want'', the school counselor gets fired and decides that she wants a baby.

A phrase frequently said by one of a married couple (usually the wife) that already have at least one child, especially if they're in their 40s or late 30s, generally past the age most people want kids, but before [[MyBiologicalClockIsTicking that biological clock stops ticking]]. Saying this sentence ''guarantees'' one of the following:

* In ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'' Carla expresses a desire to have a child after Turk's injury results in him having to have a testicle removed.

They have trouble conceiving, which leaves them both insecure, but by the end of season 8 Carla is pregnant again.
