* ''Anime/LoveLive'' has a ColdOpen in season 2 with a scene that's half this and half AllJustADream - the girls are around the computer, waiting for the results of the recent preliminary competition. The results come in, and after a few "almost"s ("Mi...Mi... Midnight Cats! Mi... Myu... Myu... Mutant Girls!"), they aren't on the list of teams that made it. Cut to Honoka saying, "And that was the dream I had!", to which the rest of the team reacts along with the audience.

* In the season 2 finale of ''{{Roseanne}}'', Dan builds Roseanne an office in which she can realize her dream of becoming a writer. In the final episode, it's revealed that [[spoiler:the entire series has been based on a semi-autobiographical story she's been writing in the office. In the story, she's changed a number of details about her life that she didn't like, while in reality, Dan actually died from his heart attack during Darlene's wedding; Darlene actually married Mark, while Becky married David; her sister, rather than her mother, was a lesbian; and Roseanne didn't win the lottery.]]
* In one episode of ''{{Frasier}}'', the eponymous doctor is seriously doubting whether he should help strangers in need. While driving his car, he sees a woman standing in the rain, and decides to give her a ride. The woman turns out to be [[spoiler:a transgender prostitute, and Frasier soon gets arrested by the police, who mistakenly think he's soliciting for her services.]] The whole event ends up being publicized in the media, making Frasier a laughing stock. Just before the episode ends, [[spoiler:it cuts back to the scene with Frasier in the car and the woman standing in the rain. Turns out everything that happened was just a worst-case scenario Frasier had been considering in his head. He gives the woman a ride anyway.]]

** However, series creator Creator/RonGilbert had no involvement in the series after [=LeChuck=]'s Revenge (aside from minor, early story advice on VideoGame/TalesOfMonkeyIsland[[spoiler:, which was still part of the continuity created by the third game]]), having left LucasArts a year after it was released, and he said that the reveal in Curse wasn't what he had in plan for the story, so it might be a nested story after all.
