* * The punchline "... that's no kindergartner, that's my wife!" was a running gag on ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}''; we even got some interesting characterization out of it in one episode. The episode had two separate shorts. The first opened with [[ReasonableAuthorityFigure Principal Prickly]] delivering the punchline to great reception among his peers. The second short opens with his opposite number, [[TheHero TJ,]] delivering the same punchline to his own peers and getting a similar reception. NotSoDifferent indeed.

* Creator/StephenKing, under his pen name Richard Bachman, quoted a couple in ''The Regulators''. Namely, "Hey, mister, your sign fell down," and "I don't know about the other two, but the one in the middle looks like Music/WillieNelson."

--> '''Buford:''' So then the seamstress walks back into the stateroom and says, " 'Titanium'? I thought she said 'cranium'!" Hahaha, yeah. Pretty good punch line, huh?
--> '''Baljeet:''' Yes. All you need now is the first part, and then you will have a whole joke.
* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/WeBareBears'' we catch the very end of a joke Grizz is telling to the cafegoers: "And then I realized, I was wearing his shoes!"

* In ''Film/SherlockHolmes'', Holmes is imprisoned, and Lestrade hurries to get him free before he has to fight off the entire penitentiary of criminals. As Lestrade arrives in the prison yard, he sees a crowd of unruly thugs gathered around Holmes... who is delivering a punchline for the joke he was telling: 'To which the barman says, "May I push in your stool?"' Having charmed the prisoners with his jokes, Holmes leaves in peace.

** "Descent: Part I" opens with Data playing poker with the holographic recreations of Creator/StephenHawking ([[AsHimself played by Hawking himself]]), UsefulNotes/AlbertEinstein, and Sir Isaac Newton, and Hawking delivers this punchline:
-->'''Hawking:''' ...but then I said, in that frame of reference, the perihelion of Mercury would have precessed in the opposite direction.
-->'''Einstein:''' (''laughing'') That is a great story!
-->'''Data:''' Quite amusing, Dr. Hawking. You see, Sir Isaac, [[DontExplainTheJoke the joke depends on an understanding of the relativistic curvature of space-time. If two non-inertial reference frames are in relative motion-]]
-->'''Newton:''' Do not patronize me, sir! I invented physics!

'''Zuko:''' Well, it's funnier when Uncle tells it.\\
'''Katara:''' Right, maybe
that's why because he '''remembers''' the database hates you."''

* Episode 3 of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' sees [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Pinkie Pie]] blurting out "AndThenISaid, 'Oatmeal? Are you crazy?'" after Twilight Sparkle interrupts an argument between her friends. The original subject was who should get to go as Twilight's guest to the Grand Galloping Gala, so it's safe to say Pinkie got a little off-topic...

--->'''Phone Caller:''' Hello; I was just listening to this record with my wife and our au-pair, and I'd like to say how shocked we are that a pleasant collection of Norwegian folk songs should be turned into an excuse for Communist propaganda of the shoddiest kind! What's gone wrong with the world? I can't even take a bath without six or seven communists jumping in with me! They're in my shirt cupboard and Breshnev and Kosygen are in the kitchen now eating my wife's jam! Oh, they're climbing up my legs! I can see them peeping out of my wife's blouse! Why doesn't Mr. Maudling do something about it before it is to late?! Ohhh, God - ''[Phone is hung up]''
