* This trope is exploited in Series/TheAdventuresOfPeteAndPete. Young Pete and his two friends are called into the Principal's office for being troublemakers and is about to give them detention before another issue takes his attention. Before he leaves, the Principal tells the trio to not leave his office but forgets about them and goes home, leaving Pete and his friends in school for the whole night. After having an adventure in School during the night, the trio returns to the Principal's office before he arrives in the morning. When the Principal asks them what they are doing in his office, the trio reply he told not to leave his office so they did. Shocked that they did what he told them and unintentionally locked the kids at school, the Principal decides to not give them detention and allows them to take the day off.

* In ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyTrialsAndTribulations'', this results in [[spoiler:Pearl Fey]] pouring a roast's gravy on a picture, as she was ordered to "gravely roast" (i.e., in Hell) the person it depicted [[spoiler:-- and she was too young to understand]]. This is a {{Woolseyism}} -- in the original Japanese, [[spoiler:the order is something along the lines of "Give Misty Fey magnificent burial rites" -- in kanji. Pearl can't read kanji very well, because she's only eight, so she reads "magnificent" as "curry" (they're pronounced the same) and covers the picture in it]].

* A lot of the jokes in ''Series/AngieTribeca'' come from a character taking cop slang or everyday figures of speech literally. One example is a perp bargaining for immunity, and then getting a vaccination shot (along with a lollipop).

'''Angie:''' Thank you, ma'am, but we think it was a human who did it.

* Rose on ''Series/TheGoldenGirls'' is very much this way -- it seems to be common to people from St. Olaf.
