* ''Series/DoctorWho'' does this deliberately. The seventh episode of Series 1 is entitled ''The Long Game'', which only vaguely describes the events of the episode. [[spoiler:The Doctor finally confronts the villain playing a 'long game' in episode 12, ''Bad Wolf'', and the events of episode 7 turn out to have been part of the plan]].

* On ''Series/SportsNight'':
** The episode entitled "Kafelnikov" is the episode ''before'' the one where Dan can't pronounce Yevgeny Kafelnikov's name. This could be considered FridgeBrilliance, since "Kafelnikov" is the episode in which we get the reason why Dan can't say Yevgeny Kafelnikov's name in the following episode.
** Also notable is "How Are Things in Glocca Morra", which was an episode a whole season before the song was a B-plot. However, that B-plot was originally intended to be a part of "How Are Things in Glocca Morra" before [[RealLifeWritesThePlot Real Life Rewrote the Plot]].

* Looking at the title of GoodIsDumb, most people would probably assume it's something like the quote from ''Film/{{Spaceballs}}''--a character decides to trust a villain, not for any particular reason, but because they're a good guy who's holding the IdiotBall. For an extremely long time, this trope was the primary title of RedemptionDemotion, which had nothing to do with that idea. Regrettably, we still don't have a proper GoodIsDumb article- it's an index.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' had a season 1 episode named [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS1E3HomersOdyssey "Homer's Odyssey"]] where he crusaded for more stringent safety regulation. It would still be several more seasons before they made the episode "Lemon Of Troy" that ''actually mirrored'' the plot of ''Literature/TheOdyssey'' (well, ''Literature/TheIliad'')... and [[FleetingDemographicRule another stretch of years]] before they did it again with a literal re-enactment with Simpsons characters acting parts from the story of the Odyssey. Lampshaded at one point. When he reads the title "Homer's Odyssey", he wonders if its about one of his previous adventures (wrong one, but still). Specifically, he wonders if it is about that time he rented a [[DontExplainTheJoke Honda Odyssey minivan]].

* Music/CamperVanBeethoven's box set ''Cigarettes And Carrot Juice'' was actually named for a lyric from "Big Dipper" by David Lowery's other band, Cracker... But years later the Camper Van Beethoven song "Long Plastic Hallway" would also mention "cigarettes and carrot juice" in it's lyrics.

* The ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' episode "How To Eat With Your Butt" revolves around Kenny taking his school photo with his butt sticking out of the hood in his parka instead of his face. The later episode "Red Hot Catholic Love", though, is the one where Cartman actually discovers how to eat with your butt.
