* 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.

** Near the end of the episode [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS5E6MargeOnTheLam "Marge On The Lam"]] Marge is seen smoking a cigarette in a [[SmokingIsCool BadassSmoker]] pose. This is really awkward because she normally doesn't smoke and for most of the episode her friend Ruth Powers was acting out the [[SmokingIsCool BadassSmoker]] part.
*** In the episode [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS8E9ElViajeMisteriosoDeNuestroJomer "El Viaje Mysterioso de Nuestro Homer"]], Marge is again seen smoking a cigarette to distract Homer from the chili festival in town. Her plan backfires because Homer knows "she doesn't smoke". Later Homer dismisses her with the words: "Sheesh, why don't you have a cigarette or something?" whereupon Marge concludes: "Mm, I suppose I could."
** In the episode [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS11E12TheMansionFamily "The Mansion Family"]] The Simpsons take care of Mr. Burns' mansion. Bart then lits a cigar, only to have it slapped away by Marge.

* A rather infamous anti smoking TV commercial from the 1980s featured [=C3P0=] condemning [=R2D2=] for smoking a cigarette. Well intended, but probably not the best illustration of a "random smoking scene", since [=R2D2=] was never seen smoking in the Franchise/StarWars movies. They even had to "add" an arm to the robot to make him able to smoke. By the way: since he's a robot: what harm could it do to him anyway?

* ''VideoGame/StarcraftII'' has a scene where Raynor and Horner light up big cigars to celebrate their victory over Mengsk. Completing Hanson's missions sees Raynor ''finally'' put the pack of cigarettes he carries in his sleeve to use, but she knocks the cig out of his mouth before he can light up (she is a doctor after all).
