* ''Film/StarTrekVTheFinalFrontier'': Smoking is implied to be exceedingly rare or non-existent among humans in ''Franchise/StarTrek'', but St. John Talbot, the human ambassador to Nimbus III, is nevertheless smoking a cigarette in one scene. None of the characters seem to notice or point this out.

* When first introduced in the ''{{Discworld}}'' series, head wizard Mustrum Ridcully is, in ''Discworld/ReaperMan'', a militant non-smoker. He adamantly refuses a cigarette claiming that if you could see the inside of your own lungs you'd think twice. But in ''Discworld/UnseenAcademicals'' he is seen searching his rooms, late at night, for smoking materials, as he really needs tobacco. Either the pressures of the job made him take it up or this is a continuity error/random smoking scene.

* In ''Film/ItsAWonderfulLife'' George lights up a cigarette while outside of Harry's party. It might represent his depression, since Harry's getting a lucrative job offer and George is still stuck in Bedford Falls, but otherwise it never comes up again.

** "The Deadly Assassin" has a scene where the Fourth Doctor uses a hookah and a pile of his clothes in a chair as a DecoyGetaway, so as to create the illusion that he's smoking in the corner with his back to the door when the Time Lord guards break into his TARDIS. Since he isn't ever seen smoking on screen, it comes across as a bizarre part of the illusion. He isn't shown actually smoking it, though he [[OralFixation pops the end of the pipe into his mouth]] while he's setting it up.

* Dixie McCall, while on a break, in one early episode of ''{{Series/Emergency}}''. Although most of the show's actors smoked, this is one of the rare times any of the characters is shown doing it. Of course, this was before hospitals banned it in general.
