* 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?

A standard comedy misunderstanding, in which a character claims a loved one "is no longer with us", "has moved on", "isn't here anymore", "has joined the choir invisible" etc. Considering how many [[NeverSayDie euphemisms for death]] there are in modern language, everyone naturally assumes that they've died, but no, in fact the character was [[LiteralMetaphor talking literally]] and the allegedly departed has just gone to work, are on holiday, or are in a musical group that prevents its members from being seen. She's gone to a better place-- a resort in Palm Springs.

* Happens in ''Literature/YeLittleHillsLikeLambs'' in the ''Literature/VillageTales'' series, when the Duke mentions that the aged Lord Mallerstang (whose ancestral hall had been being restored and refurbished) had Gone Home At Last, and Teddy and Edmond wax all sympathetic. His Grace points out, with his usual asperity, that he's not, damn it all, middle class, and that, God damn his soul, ''had'' Hugo Mallerstang died, don't y' know, he'd have damned well ''said'' he'd damned well died. Damn it all.
