* In ''{{Spaced}}'', Daisy tells Tim her dog has gone next door. He reacts sympathetically because it was his parents' euphemism for a pet dying. But she means the dog really has left for the neighbours. Meanwhile, Mike realises this means the rabbit he loved that "went next door" is dead and takes it badly.

* ''JustShootMe'': Jack, dressed as Santa Claus, tells a boy who wishes his grandmother would come back that she isn't coming back. Turns out grandma moved to Palm Beach.
* In ''WhosTheBoss'', Tony's father-in-law is telling Tony that he (the father-in-law) is going to prison. But he can't bring himself to say the word "prison" and leaves off with, "I'm going to..." So Tony assumes that [[NeverSayDie "die" was the unspeakable word]] that he was having trouble with. HilarityEnsues as the father-in-law spends the whole episode enjoying the sympathy that is accorded to a terminally ill person.

** Actually, it's been implied that they died. Though Charlotte [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation may]], or may not, know this, so this may invert the trope.

** Actually, it's been even more strongly implied that they died. Though Charlotte [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation may]], or may not, know this, misses them she chooses to interpret their absence in a positive way and does not understand death, so this may invert the trope.

* In chapter 44 of ''Manga/ACentaursLife'', Shino's classmate Mii says that her dog Ichiro "went away" and "is up in the sky" leading Shino to think that the dog has died and to treat Mii extra kindly. Ichiro turns up alive at the end: he'd been staying at a kennel while the family looked for an apartment that allowed pets.

* An episode of ''SavedByTheBell'' had Zack con his friends into thinking Slater would die unless they were so mean to him he'd want to leave for Hawaii to get treated had a conversation like this between Jessie and Belding, where he rather flippantly told her that Slater would not be with them for much longer.
* Essentially the whole of the last episode of ''{{Frasier}}'': Dr Crane's accepted a new job in San Francisco, but all the other characters think he's dying (he's just back from the doctors and is constantly weeping due to a bad botox injection he got there, he's giving away possessions he 'won't need anymore' etc). He thinks they already know and so launches into a long speech about moving on to better places, how they shouldn't be sad, how when he passes through that Golden Gate he'll be smiling...
