When the man says "their soil", Gumball mishears it as "there's oil" and thinks there's oil underground under the Robinsons' yard.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'': In the episode "Let's Play Peace, Man!", [[AllLovingHero Kaeloo]] tries to convince [[TheDitz Stumpy]] that peace is better than war. He asks her what he will get out of it, and she says he can win the Nobel Peace Prize. He mishears it as "Frozen Peas Prize" and tells her he doesn't eat peas.

* There was also a a Mondgreen that became AscendedFanon. When the premier was watched with Youtube captions, the sea serpent was shown with the caption "steven magnet". Fans immediately latched on to that, claiming "Steven Magnet" to be the serpent's name. Come [[MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS5E9SliceOfLife the 100th episode]], and he reappears (having not been seen in the 98 episodes in between), and goes by Steven Magnet.

* ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'' has quite a few of these in the form of its many [[CallingYourAttacks ultimate callouts]], which are often in different languages, but perhaps the most notable was Zarya's "Ogon po gotovnosti" ("Fire at will!"), which sounded remarkably close to English upon hearing it, in the general vein of "I'm going for the tobelstein!" Lampshaded by Blizzard, where one of her unlockable sprays is titled "Tobelstein."

* There are people out there who swear the line from Music/{{Journey}}'s "Don't Stop Believing" is "heaven's just a fine emotion". The line is actually "living just to find emotion."
