* ''{{Outnumbered}}'' usually ends with one that's a punch line. Example; the mom and dad are installing parental controls on the computer, over the eldest son's protest. They reiterate that this ''is'' going to happen but:
-->-'''Dad''' We need ''you'' to do it, we can't even begin to figure this out.

* The DCAU was fond of these. ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'' comes to mind but ''JusticeLeagueUnlimited'' had quite a few.
* The end of the ''HeyArnold'' episode where Arnold and Gerald skip school.
* The end of the ''WesternAnimation/TransformersGenerationOne'' episode "The Golden Lagoon" features one from, of all Transformers, pacifistic and somewhat hippie-like Beachcomber...which is precisely why it works so well.

Added DiffLines:

* Mal gets one at the end of the ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' episode "Bushwhacked", on the outskirts of civilized space where everyone is being attacked by Reavers:

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/HillStreetBlues'': Captain Furillo has finally managed to obtain the crucial confession and testimony needed for a conviction in the case of a brutal rape and murder case, but at the cost of pulling some ''very'' questionably ethical tactics and only barely staying on the right side of the law. Joyce, natually, does not hesitate to call him out on this, and in the last moments of the episode we see Frank going to confession for what's probably the first time in quite a while.

* One episode of ''PersonOfInterest'' ends with John talking to a jerk who he had just talked the week's [=PoI=] into not killing. The last line is "Help me make the right decision". The question of whether or not John killing the man himself is the "right" decision is never answered, [[NoEnding as is what decision he makes]].

A wry comment at the end of an episode, often highlighting the [[DebateAndSwitch moral ambiguity]] of the episode's outcome. Often found in legal or medical dramas, where very often there is no BlackAndWhiteMorality, only [[GrayandGrayMorality Shades of Gray]].

The TropeNamer is District Attorney Adam Schiff of the television series ''Series/LawAndOrder'', who frequently ended an episode with one. The trope has no connection with the Schiff from ''BloodPlus'', nor with actor [[Series/TheWestWing Richard Schiff]] (although he ''is'' quite good at them).
