* Done in an episode of ''TinyToonAdventures''. After her hamster dies and her grandmother leaves town on vacation, Elmyra is taken to the school nurse, where she's reduced to tears and sputters out the above. The nurse assumes, and tells everyone, that the ''grandmother'' is dead. That's the biggest case in the episode, though; most of the misunderstandings through the rest of the episode have the characters clearly talking about death (just of the wrong character.)

* Happens at the end of the Strong Bad Email "virus" from ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'':
-->Strong Bad: Hey, Bubs! How did you take care of- (notices that Bubs is wielding a rifle) (voice breaking)Why do you have a shotgun? What did you do? Where's my Compy?!
-->Bubs: It's in a better place now, Strong Bad. Or rather, it's in the ''same'' place, but it now has a big hole through it!
-->Strong Bad:(in a worrisome voice) You murderer! You killed my brother- I mean computer!
-->Bubs: Look, Strong Bad. My mouth was a broken JPEG. I had no choice!
-->Strong Bad: You don't understand! You all understand! I mean don't understand! (starts running away crying, with the Cheat following him)

* Ambiguously used by Death in Terry Pratchett's ''[[Literature/{{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 litle clearer: "[[AC:There isn't an entirely appropriate Human word, so...let us settle for...gone.]]"

* In the second {{Temeraire}} book, ''Throne of Jade'', a badly injured and slightly delirious Laurence sends a note to [[BondCreatures his dragon]] Temeraire which reads ''"Never fear; I am going; the Son of Heaven will not tolerate delays, and Barham gives me leave. Allegiance will carry us!"'' Temeraire freaks out, but Laurence is only talking about going to China ("the Son of Heaven" referring to the emperor, and Allegiance being the ship they're to travel on).

* Dom Irerra talks about an elderly relative and says that "we lost her", then clarifying that she's still alive, his family just lost her. She's gotten so old that [[IncredibleShrinkingMan she's shrunk past the point that she can still be seen by the naked eye]], but they know she's in the house ''somewhere''.

* 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.
