* Has happened [[{{Understatement}} a few times times]] on ''Series/{{Greys Anatomy}}''; George, Callie, and Derek have all been operated on by other cast members So members... so have Izzie, Cristina, Meredith, Alex, Arizona, Mark, and Burke. So have some of their family members. To the point that when Meredith (the main character) needs to be operated on the second time (of four, so far), Bailey tells her that too many doctors have been on the operating table and she'd better not die on her. When Meredith gets hurt in season 12 and is sent to compulsory therapy, she gets to deliver a list to the therapist, who is clearly disturbed with how she has SeenItAll.

** Obviously, as these were remakes, applies to the original ''Series/LawAndOrder'' as well. The first example here is based on "Helpless", where instead of a prosecutor, Dr. Olivet is the victim.

** Also happened a few times on ''Series/LawAndOrderCriminalIntent''; possibly the most notable instance was when Eames was kidnapped, and Goren was almost taken down by police officers investigating the scene. The captain even intervened to protect him by shouting, "He's one of us!"



* ''Series/DueSouth'' Ray gets in trouble for shooting someone because the only person who saw it claims the other guy was unarmed. Ray also had powder on his hands from the shooting range, which made it worse. He seeks shelter in the Canadian Consulate, which as it's Canadian soil,gives Fraser time to clear him before he can be 'extradited'.

[[spoiler: It turns out not to matter. The head of Alliance Intelligence knew that, while Tycho might have been TheMole, he was innocent of that particular crime, and was drawing the trial out as long as possible to lull his Imperial counterpart into a false sense of security.]]

** Perhaps the most powerful instance of this trope in ''M*A*S*H'' is "Fallen Idol", where Hawkeye's attempt to arrange some R&R for Radar results in Radar being caught in a mortar attack. The next time we see Radar, he's wheeled into the 4077th's OR and placed right in front of Hawkeye. Hawkeye is so distraught with guilt that he goes on a bender and has to leave a subsequent OR session to vomit, blows up at Radar after Radar chides him for the previous issue, and receives a WhatTheHellHero from everyone around him.

Not a cheap plot in and of itself, it does however have to be used in moderation, otherwise things become preposterous. The worst offenders are ''{{ER}}'' (which had Mark's tumor, Carter and Lucy being stabbed, Jing-Mei and Pratt's car crash, Romano's arm being chopped off, Frank's heart attack, a swath of births and much more) and ''Series/ThePractice'', which by the end had the characters involved in so many personal court battles that you had to wonder how the firm made any money.

* Happened to the paramedics of ''ThirdWatch'' quite a bit. Bobby was ''shot'' (and killed), Carlos was frequently in hospital for various amusing minor injuries (and one not-so-amusing major disease), Alex was killed in an explosion, and in the PilotEpisode Jerry was shot and had to retire.

* ''Series/{{CSI}}'': In an early season, Nick is a suspect in the murder of a hooker who he had slept with the night before (it was a set-up). Then from season 5 on this became a regular event during {{Sweeps}} and SeasonFinale episodes. Nick gets kidnapped in the end of season 5, Brass gets shot at the end of season 6, 4th ep of season 7 sees Greg get badly beat up when he tries to stop a violent gang, (it kills one of the gang but saves their intended victim) ''and'' Sara is kidnapped by the Miniature Killer at the end of the season. Season 8, Warrick is suspected of going vigilante and killing a mob boss they couldn't convict, gets cleared, then ''shot'' by the real perp. [[spoiler: Warrick dies and the perp is also one of their own, Undersheriff [=McKeen=].]] Then, Ecklie gets shot, and there's a connection with McKeen pulling strings from prison.

* ''Series/HillStreetBlues'' had a story arc leading up to the Season 1 finale in which Detective Larue was under Internal Affairs investigation for accepting a bribe from an undercover Narcotics cop... who identified himself, produced his badge and basically offered JD a bundle of twenties to let him go to get out of the extra paperwork. Captain Furillo suspects there's something more going on and has Detectives Washington and Belker scope out this drug squad guy.
