If you want to be charitable, you can blame this on the TimeyWimeyBall.

TimeyWimeyBall. Characters who are UnstuckInTime also have a reason to rush, that being that they can't control how long they'll be at this time for or how long for them it will be before they are back, if at all.

* ''VideoGame/TheJourneymanProject'' series of computer games were all dependent on this trope. In those games, whenever something in the past is altered, it creates "temporal ripples" that take a certain amount of San Dimas Time to "reach" the present.

** In fact, according to the VNA Doctor Who novels, Gallifrey runs on an <i>in-universe</i> form of this, called Inner Time, which all Time Lords and TARDISes (and by extension people travelling with said Time Lords) are fundamentally bound to, and which nobody can travel through. It's actually an entirely separate dimension from what we commonly think of as 'time.' Whereas 'Outer Time,' i.e. the rest of reality, is in fact entirely a construct - history in its entirety was created by the Seven Founders ( Rassilon, Omega, the Other, and company) around the same time the laws of physics and black holes as a concept were invented (by the same people.) If you exit Gallifrey and come out in the Earth year 2500, then travel five hundred years back through Outer Time, land in 2000, and exit Outer Time to Gallifrey again, only as much Inner Time will have passed as actually passed for you - which is to say, Outer and Inner run on entirely different wavelengths (although Inner Time overlays Outer.) Inner Time is what keeps Time Lords meeting in the right order and reality-spanning events happening when they should, which also explains most of the examples above.

** Averted in "Sir Gyro De Gearloose." They spend a couple of days in the past, but Gyro sets his machine to bring them back only an hour after they left so no one missed them.



** To be fair, he had specifically set it to go off in that amount of time.



*** [[ComicBook/{{Flashpoint}} Yeah, cause that worked so well last time...]]
* Completely thrown out the window in the ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueUnlimited'' episodes ''The Once and Future Thing.'' The timeline was described as [[TechnoBabble becoming fluid]], with different time periods merging together because of how much it was screwed up.
* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/BikerMiceFromMars'' had the BigBad (probably some kind of alien named after cheese, but who cares?) travelling into the past to demolish the city by digging giant holes where it would be built. Whenever he finished digging a hole, it would appear ''at the same time in the future'' in the middle of the city. Then again, what did you expect from a show about ''biker mice from Mars''?
* This trope is integral to the second season of ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars''. So the Planet Buster is blown up over prehistoric Earth, unleashing the Quantum wave. Half a season later, the Transformers realize the Quantum Wave travels in space and time. It should reach Cybertron sometimes during the time period they come from (24th Century). The wave in fact hits right about the same length of time after the Maximals left their century as they have spent in the past, making our first instance of this. Now, the Tripredacus Council sends an agent back in the past, to assist the Maximals to apprehend the Predacons, figuring out the time period from the Quantum Wave. Now, logically the agent should arrive when the Planet Buster detonated, well before the Maximals even realized the Quantum Wave traveled in time, retconning the second season? No. He shows up in the past several months after the planet buster detonated, showing both time lines are clearly running in parallel.

* Played with heavily in ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' episode "The Countdown", which features Gumball and Darwin working against a countdown clock (literally) until near the end of the episode when they realize [[CameraAbuse they can spin the countdown clock at their own leisure]] [[TimeyWimeyBall ,even as far back as the beginning of the universe]] and end up inadvertently screwing up evolution--all to avoid being late to school.

* The high concept of ''VideoGame/SpiderManEdgeOfTime'': Actions in the present alter the future, but they do so "simultaneously" in relation to the PortalToThePast; if SpiderMan can't stop the giant robot from ever being built "before" it kills SpiderMan [[{{Marvel 2099}} 2099]], then it's too late. Miguel {{Handwave}}s this as a side-effect of the permenant connection between the two time periods; Peter {{Lampshades}} that it still doesn't make any sense.

* On ''Series/{{Primeval}}'', each Anomaly seems to operate on its own San Dimas Time. If two prehistoric animals enter an Anomaly two hours apart in their time, they'll emerge two hours apart in ours, in the same order as they entered.

* This appears to be how time travel works in ''Series/{{Timeless}}''. The control room at Mason Industries always has a mission clock running above it, which appears to match the time the team spends in the past.

*** DoubleSubverted: Marty only gives himself a few minutes of extra time when he could have just as easily given himself hours or days, failing to account for the possibility that the car might break down. As a result, he ''still'' ends up still not having enough time to warn Doc.
