** In "Squid's Day Off", Mr. Krabs' arms pop off while attempting to pull a dime out from a drain. Spongebob says the stock phrase exactly, implying that Mr. Krabs loses his arms on a regular basis. Even within the same episode Mr. Krabs lost his arms again, and it became a running gag that in a state of shock, disapproval or other emotional duress, he sometimes literally falls apart. There's also the repeated occurrence of Squidward accidentally swallowing his clarinet, but Spongebob only references it in a later episode when it grows from a simple gag to a plot-guiding calamity- he pulls the clarinet out of Squidward's throat, but its reed breaks off and remains stuck, requiring medical attention from Sandy to remove it.
** Mrs. Puff says this after briefly considering changing her name and moving to another town after giving Spongebob a boating license before he's qualified to drive.

* PlayedForDrama in ''WebOriginal/{{RWBY}}''. [[TheStoic Ren]] is seen running through the remains of [[DoomedHometown Kuroyuri]] while muttering "Not again, not again". Given that the previous episode ended with Ren realizing that the Grimm that destroyed Kuroyuri and killed his parents was now headed back to Kuroyuri where Ruby and Jaune were, Ren's fear is justified. He's relieved when he sees they're unharmed [[spoiler:[[OOCIsSeriousBusiness but drops to his knees in fear and shock]] when he sees that the Grimm has also arrived]].

A simple comedy dialogue trick is to have something bizarre happen, and then have someone say "not again", implying it's happened before. The actual phrasing can vary. A slightly less funny version (unless dowebne just right) is where it actually has happened before, on-screen, and the character is just [[ContinuityNod pointing that out]].

* In ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'', Episode 2 has Shinji being confused when he wakes up to the sight of the UnfamiliarCeiling of NERV's sickbay with no memory of the past several hours. But through the course of the series this begins to happen so often to him, that by Episode 14, he reacts with exasperation when he ''once again'' wakes up the sight of the now far-too-familiar ceiling.

* ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'': In one of his early scenes, Mikkel convinces Emil that his bruise risks developping into face-cancer. Later, admiral Olsen asks Emil why his face is heavily bandanged. The answer prompts admiral Olsen to survey the room, land his eyes on Mikkel, and ask him what he's doing in his base because he's quite sure he fired him a long time ago.
