%% The former trope "I Am Not Making This Up" covered anything surprising (the trope was scrapped due to being thrown around like confetti, applied to anything even remotely unusual). This covers the much narrower context of stuff that is nonsensical both when summarized, and in context. To provide one example, Cantor's proof of the existence of the Transinfinite fell under IANMTU, but because it [[ItMakesSenseInContext makes sense when the context is described]] and is a fairly logical result, it wouldn't be this. %%

* The ''BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' season four finale "Restless" is a goldmine for this trope, but there has to be particular mention for the little man who wanders through the main characters dreams discussing, demonstrating and wearing cheese slices. In the commentary Joss Whedon says this is because every dream has some element which simply makes no sense.

* Ah, ''Series/TwinPeaks''. Sure, for the most part, it was a reasonably straightforward murder mystery with soap opera aspects. But then every so often there'd be a denim-clad demon named BOB (all caps) and his former best friend who cut off his arm to get rid of a tattoo he didn't like and the arm turned into a little person who dances a lot, a teleporting horse, an extradimensional conspiracy revolving around creamed corn, a murdered woman's soul getting caught inside a dresser drawer, a seemingly-crazy woman whose best friend is a chunk of wood which is implied not only to be sentient, but also to have psychic powers, and DavidBowie and Chris Isaak as FBI agents who accidentally travel through time. And the normal stuff just made the weird stuff seem even weirder.

* The infamous ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' episode ''Threshold'', in which traveling at warp 10 causes people to mutate into large salamanders and have salamander babies together before being returned completely to normal. There's something about [[HollywoodEvolution "evolution"]] in there, but beyond that...

* ''TheYoungOnes'': From the airplane crashing into the house, random unexplained time travel into the middle ages, Vampires in the post, random cartoon violence, a genie in a kettle that is boiled alive when one of them makes tea, Macbeth witches in the hallway, a roller disco in the bedroom, the very random cut scenes that don't have any meaning and the fact that the entire episode is held together, if at all, by a very loose plot thread.

* ''VisualNovel/HatofulBoyfriend'': The heroine brings something to her teacher during the summer holidays and he asks if she'll stay to help him with some work. The heroine can choose to either stay and help him; go to the library... or say that she has to claim her spoils of war and head to the distant land of mascedonia, to obtain her reward from the king. There is just ''no'' explaining of that line.

* In "The Chaperone" from SpongebobSquarepants, at one point a ''giant apple'' chases a woman. The context? [=SpongeBob=] and Pearl were doing a dance at the latter's prom called "The Sponge", which simply consists of bouncing on ones' butt. Everyone else has trouble doing it and end up injuring themselves and each other until the whole prom gets destroyed.
