** This is done on two levels in ''VideoGame/BackToTheFutureTheGame'', where Marty has to swap the sheet music at the piano so Cue Ball plays just the right music to change the mood so a drunken officer will get in the mood to talk to him. Then when he needs a more inspirational song than the club has to offer, Marty gets the lyrics to such a song, swaps them for Trixie's lyrics to her own song, then changes the piano music so Trixie's song is played. Possibly justified in the latter case in that the two songs have ''really'' similar lyrics, and Trixie explicitly hasn't memorized hers.

* A classic accidental example from ''{{Series/Friends}}'': Rachel is making English trifle for dessert, but two pages on the recipe book stick together, so she ends up making a mincemeat trifle that {{tastes like feet}}.

* A TV movie of ''WesternAnimation/TheJetsons'' has the encrypted directions to a WMD switched with Judy Jetsons's lyrics submission to pop star Jet Screamer. Screamer likes the directions, mistaking them for song lyrics, and calls it "Gleep Glorp." "Gleep Glorp" subsequently becomes a hit song while the goons tasked with finding the WMD somehow manage to decrypt Judy's lyrics, which lead to a pair of fuzzy dice.

* In the second WesternAnimation/GeraldMcBoingBoing cartoon "Gerald [=McBoing-Boing=]'s Symphony", Gerald is asked to stand in for an orchestra for the premiere of a new symphony. Unfortunately, some of the pages from his sound effects script get mixed in with the score, and so the music is often interrupted by sound effects. At first Gerald is fired for his mistake, until messages come pouring in praising this new piece of "avant-guard" music.

* Subverted in ''WesternAnimation/ParaNorman''. [[spoiler:It seems as if Norman took the wrong book when trying to cast the spell that keeps the ghost of the witch asleep; he gets through the first few lines before he realizes that it's actually a book of fairy tales instead of a spellbook. Then it's revealed that it ''was'' the right book; the ritual that keeps the witch's ghost asleep is telling stories to her at her grave. The zombies appeared because he was at the wrong grave.]]

* Variant: In the manga ''CatStreet'', Keito's script is wrongly transcribed for her by rival auditionees in order to improve their own chances of being selected. Keito cannot read kanji and asked them for help, resulting in a completely nonsensical monologue.
