* This trope occasionally appeared on ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}''.
** The plot of "The Library" centers on a copy of ''Tropic of Cancer'' that Jerry apparently never returned in high school; in a subplot, George discovers that an unstable homeless man on the New York Public Library steps is his and Jerry's old gym teacher Mr. Hayman. George and Jerry are never able to find the missing ''Tropic of Cancer'', but as the episode ends, we cut to Mr. Hayman muttering to himself in an alley, with the weatherbeaten book at his side.
** The subplot of "The Bizarro Jerry" focuses on George gaining access to an exclusive secret club for models and other [[TheBeautifulElite wealthy, attractive people]] by using a picture of Jerry's current girlfriend. When the picture burns up, he tries to use a generic photo from a magazine as his entry pass--but the model from the photo is a member and immediately exposes him as a fraud. As he's kicked out, he drops the photo. When George brings Jerry to the club's location, they find a meatpacking plant instead, with absolutely no trace that the business ever existed...but as they leave, the camera pans down to the sawdust-covered floor, with the magazine picture still sitting there.

** Played with in a ClipShow when an auditor from the state board comes to ask about the huge costs of rebuilding and various other expensive items the court has racked up over the years. After hearing their tales, the auditor snaps that there is no way in hell he can believe that one courthouse is home to so many bizarre occurances and this is obvious fraud by the entire staff. At which point, a huge crash is heard and everyone runs in to find an elephant standing in the courtroom. Harry looks to the auditor, who holds up his hands and backs up, saying "I believe everything you say."

** In "It's a Wonderful Leap", Sam leaps into a cab driver named Max in 1958 who's due to be murdered. Sam is thrown by the arrival of Angelita, who claims to be an angel. Sam and Al naturally assume she's a nutcase, especially given how she can see and hear Al (as mentally addled people can). In the end, Sam saves Max's life with Angelita telling him she has to leave and once she does, everyone in this time will forget she was ever here. She goes as Al asks if Sam is going to follow her. "Follow who?" Sam asks and a stunned Al realizes Sam has absolutely no idea who Angelita is.

Sam asks and a stunned Al realizes Sam has absolutely no idea who Angelita is.

* On ''Series/NipTuck'', Sean and Christian are met by an elderly man who wants them to remove a device from his body that he claims is alien technology so he can bring it for study. Before the surgery takes place, a pretty young blonde woman comes by, saying the man his her mentally addled father and the device is just a medical scanner. The man protests he doesn't know her ("my daughter is dark-haired and fat!") and the "doctors" with her are government agents. He's still screaming when he's led away. At the end of the night, the two talk on how sad it is to see someone losing their mind like that. At which point, an overweight brunette woman enters to ask if her father's surgery is done yet...

Tends to happen in series where hauntings (or alien visitations) (or whatever) are not only uncommon, but usually unconsidered, like {{Sitcom}}s or ActionAdventure series. Usually avoided in series that are ''about'' investigating and debunking hauntings (or alien visitations) (or whatever).
