** The first episode ends with Jaime Lannister saying "The things I do for love" before [[spoiler: pushing Bran Stark from a tower window after he saw Jaime having sex with Queen Cersei - not only treason, but incest given that Jaime and Cersei are twins.]]

* ''Franchise/{{Dragnet}}'' had something like this (albeit minus the "moral ambiguity" part). Sgt. Friday would typically make some wryly trenchant comment at the end of the main part of the episode, leading to the four-note {{Sting}} and the results of the trial.

** When talking to a raging egomaniac who says claims that his crimes weren't crimes were justified [[ItsAllAboutMe simply because he's ''him'', he was the one who committed them]], and who insists on being called "Mister":


Added DiffLines:

** At the start of the episode, a pair of brutal robbers gun down Officer Dave Roberts in cold blood. Unknown to them, the patrolman survived, but with no memory of the attack, and unable to describe them. Under interrogation, the robbers refuse to admit to the shooting, knowing they've killed the only possible witness, but seeing the cop alive just outside the interrogation room causes one of them to point fingers at the other, thus sealing their fates as the interrogation was being recorded. Friday talks to the patrolman just outside the room after closing the door again:
--->'''Roberts:''' You know something, Joe?\\
'''Friday:''' What's that, Dave?\\
'''Roberts:''' I still don't remember them.\\
'''Friday:''' You don't ''have to'' now, Dave.

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 ''Anime/BloodPlus'', nor with actor [[Series/TheWestWing Richard Schiff]] (although he ''is'' quite good at them), nor with the actual US Representative from California's 28th district, [[NamesTheSame Rep. Adam Schiff.]]

* There is one remark that Jack McCoy has used three times, each time at the end of an episode dealing with the iniquities of reality TV; when asked what He will be doing when he gets home, Jack replies,
"I'll be reading a book".

** The end of the episode "The Ring," which was about freeing several demons who were imprisoned and forced to fight each other. The last line reminds us that they freed a bunch of freakin' ''demons''!

Added DiffLines:

* Series "Doctor Who", episode "Midnight"; the Doctor has just had the most harrowing experience of his entire life, and has come closer than he ever has before to getting killed, and Donna has made an off-colour remark; he fixes her with a VERY hard stare and says,
"Don't! Just....don't".

* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'', Xanatos - being the TropeNamer for the XanatosGambit - could usually profit from his schemes even when they were foiled. The attempt to make a clone of Goliath without his moral code was not one of those times.
-->'''Owen:''' You mean that that creature is still out there? It has the money. It's as powerful as Goliath. And it's SMARTER than you?
-->'''Xanatos:''' Owen, I think I created a monster.

* In ''[[LawAndOrder Law & Order]]'', as noted above, DA Adam Schiff got one in nearly every episode he was in. Ben Stone and Jack [=McCoy=] (along with the occasional ADA) got their fair share as well.

* ''{{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.
