'''Customer:''' It was a girl.\\
'''Manager:''' Ah, yes. Miss Sebrarillo. She's off dead, I'm afraid.\\

* Zig-zagged with the departure of Miguel Ferrer from ''Series/NCISLosAngeles''. Hetty goes to the hospital to visit Granger, but finds an empty bed; when she asks after him, the nurse says "he's gone." Cue shocked look on Hetty's face...followed by the nurse saying that he had simply pulled out his tubes, gotten dressed and left on his own. He wrote her a note saying that he didn't want to waste his remaining time in a hospital bed, and left it to her to explain his absence to the team. All this was done in response to the real-life passing of Ferrer in early 2017.

* Ambiguously used by Death in Terry Pratchett's ''{{Discworld/Hogfather}}'': "[[AC:The Hogfather is... gone]]" A better wording would be "disappeared" or somesuch, but given that Death is... well, Death, one might assume.... The TV movie makes the line a little clearer: "[[AC:There isn't an entirely appropriate Human word, so...let us settle for...gone.]]"
** This actually combines two lines in the book, the second being "[[AC:He is...let me see...there isn't an entirely appropriate human word, so... let's settle for...dead. Yes. He is dead.]]" And when Susan visits the lifetimer room, the Hogfather's is broken, which is usually a clear indicator. It's just that for {{Anthropomorphic Personification}}s, death isn't necessarily [[DeathIsCheap a permanent condition]].

It's just that collective human imagination, he's not exactly dead, but he's also not currently existent either. In some adaptations Death does describe him as "dead", but keeps the line about this not being an appropriate word for {{Anthropomorphic Personification}}s, death isn't necessarily [[DeathIsCheap a permanent condition]].what happened to him.

* Crops up in the ''WebVideo/{{Scamalot}}'' episode "''Toaster''" where James claims not to realise that "leaving this world soon" means "is dying":
--->'''Lt. Koroma''': Don't delay. I don't have much days here on Earth.
--->'''James''': When are you leaving Earth?
--->'''Lt. Koroma''': I have not seen anybody that is more unserious as you are. Even if I die soon do you have to mock me with it? Just get the funds to the bank.
--->'''James''': I had no idea we were talking about your death!
--->'''Lt. Koroma''': What were you thinking I was talking about? Am I going to Mass?
--->'''James''': Where's Mass? Is that where the toaster is?
--->'''Lt. Koroma''': Sorry I mean Mars one of the nine planets of the solar system.
--->'''James''': Are we counting Pluto, then?
