* In the ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'' episode "D.W. Thinks Big", Arthur becomes the ringbearer for his Aunt Lucy's wedding. The ring gets lost ending up in the pipe organ. Arthur is perfectly willing to retrieve it, but is too big to go inside the organ. Fortunately, D.W. is small enough to retrieve it. It also serves to nicely expose Cora's true personality to everyone. She's small enough to go inside, but unwilling to saying the bridal couple can "just get another ring."

* In an early episode of ''Series/MarriedWithChildren'', [[SarcasmMode model housewife]] Peggy Bundy takes straight-laced Marcy to a strip club and Marcy loses her wedding ring down the speedo of a male stripper. Marcy cannot go back-stage to ask the stripper to give the ring back thanks to the "[[NoodleIncident Peggy Bundy Rule]]", so she leaves a note for the stripper to send it to Peggy's address. The next day when the stripper shows up to the house Al gets the ring and gives it to Steve- the two plan all sorts of emotional black mail for Marcy. In the end, when Steve sees how guilty Marcy felt about losing the ring he gave it back to her in an envelope saying it was from Peggy and he didn't know what it was. After she goes into the bathroom and shrieks when sees what was in the envelope, they both get into bed and hold hands to look at the rings, Steve asks Marcy "So you lost your wedding ring down a stripper's jock strap?"

* In ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor'', Frankie and Francesca have lost their wedding ring, and Francesca won't let them leave for the mainland to '''''go see her sick father''''' until it's found. Mario, of course, ends up being the one to have to retrieve it, because they won't stop looking in completely the wrong area. Later, he'll lose it in town, and post a trouble in the Trouble Center asking for help in finding it, lest he be forced to say "I love you!" some insane number of times. A valid fear, as he's already been forced to say it 100 times (as you're forced to stay and listen, A A A A A...).

* [[spoiler: Kei Tsuchiya]] from ''Manga/MarmaladeBoy'' uses this to KickTheDog levels. [[spoiler: When Miki drops either a bracelet given to her by Yuu as a gift (manga) or a Toryo medallion with a picture of Yuu and Miki herself (anime) during work without realizing it, he keeps it to himself for several days, and then ''gives it to Yuu while lying to him about how Miki wants to dump him''. Yuu is GenreSavvy enough to not believe Kei's words, but his and Miki's relationship already was rather troubled, and they break up for a short while.]]

(This is also an interesting example because it's the only indication that she is, or once was, married; [[DisappearedDad we never see or hear anything about Isabella's father]].)
