** In the episode "Iced" the trope was subverted as a gag. Greg Sanders, TheLabRat, spoke after Grissom delivered his one-liner. The other characters appeared visibly surprised by the interruption. Grissom still gets the last word, but is forced to use a less poignant line.

** In the episode "Iced" the trope was subverted as a gag. Upon finding a college couple dead in a dorm room, Grissom gets his usual comment in, before Greg Sanders, TheLabRat, spoke after ruins the moment, leaving Grissom delivered his one-liner. The other characters appeared visibly surprised by the interruption. Grissom still gets the last word, but is forced to use leave on a less poignant line.note.
-->'''Grissom''': 'For never was a story of more woe than this of Juliet and her Romeo'
-->'''Greg''': Found a condom!
-->'''Grissom''': So much for safe sex.

* Played with on ''Series/TheWire'', in an effort to distinguish itself from traditional cop shows. The pilot opens with [=McNulty=] questioning a witness about a dead kid named "Snot Boogie," a knucklehead who always hung around the local craps games and tried to steal the winnings because he "couldn't help himself." So [=McNulty=] asks why they kept letting him hang around if they knew he was going to grab the cash, and the kid says "You got to. This is America, man." The somber theme song dampens the humor of the moment, but the ''characters'' find it hilarious: [=McNulty=] opens the next scene by re-telling the story to another cop.

* An episode of ''Cops: LAC'' opens with the police attempting to break up a protest over what used to be a naturist beach, Nathan trying to get the naturists to leave for one of two other nude beaches up the coast. They're interrupted when Priscilla finds a suitcase washing up on shore, and Daniel opens it up to find a severed human leg inside.

* On the ''Website/{{WrestleCrap}} Radio'' podcast, Blade Braxton's character [[FunWithAcronyms C. S. Irwin]] was a parody of Horatio Caine. Ostensibly the podcast's {{TNA}} correspondent, Caine (like all previous correspondents) never actually recapped TNA; instead, he'd do a sort of TNA-related ShaggyDogStory that ended in a lame pun, followed by the signature Who music.
