* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanMysteryOfTheBatwoman'': When Roxanne accidentally misspoke about Bruce's playboy reputation concerning women during one of her ramblings.

* Series/TheFallAndRiseOfReginaldPerrin: Reggie's boss [[PoliticallyIncorrectHero CJ]] drags an employee into his office to ask whether he's gay due to having [[ItMakesSenseInContext the face of Beethoven embroidered on his underwear]]. The employee panics and insists that he's not, then backtracks and says there's nothing wrong and he has many gay friends, then realises [[DiggingYourselfDeeper what this implies]] and stutters to a stop. CJ insists that this is absolutely fine, but [[BaitAndSwitch then suggests that maybe he'd be happier in a more appropriate career,]] [[CrossesTheLineTwice like hairdressing or interior design]]. After the colleague's continued protests, CJ finally believes that he's straight but points out that his underwear isn't really appropriate for one of his employees. To demonstrate, he asks another staff member to remove his trousers and prove what kind of underwear a straight man actually wears. [[spoiler:Answer: plain blue]].

* [[TropeNamers The quote in question]] comes from the ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'' episode "The Outing", where Jerry and George are mistaken for gay lovers. The origin of the quote came about because during the writing of the episode, the writers were afraid the script was coming across as homophobic, which was entirely the wrong impression that they wanted to give. Then in a completely unrelated conversation, somebody used the phrase "Not that there's anything wrong with that," and Creator/LarryDavid realized that was what the episode needed to work.
